22nd May 2016, At the Address Dubai Mall, UAE – Commenced the first day of the 3 day program “Becoming the CEO of your own life” under ICON Investments with Salma Sakhnini; Founder & Managing Director of ICON Training and Coaching Consultancy, and lead by life coach Katie Chikhani.
“What is success? How do you define it?” was the opening question that probed the attendees to share their experiences, telling stories of turning points in their lives. There are lots of symbols for success – “There is no elevator to success you must take the steps to get there.”
The session revolved around looking internally and discovering what one wants out of life and why and eventually coming up with an action plan to achieve it. “When you take control of your life, only then you can help those around you.” Advocates ICON
Other questions put forward were: what stands in the way of success? What are the beliefs that come into play in the journey of life? And what is a belief?
The audience engaged sharing some of their limiting beliefs, and how they attach meanings to things in their life. “To change a limiting belief, believe that you can and you will. There is a difference between facts and meanings you give to things. Believing is seeing not seeing is believing.” Advocated ICON
“The first step to changing limiting beliefs is becoming aware of them.”
The attendees took part in a series of exercises showing them the power of the mind and the effect of the limiting beliefs they hold.
One of the participants had a breakthrough “Aha moment” from her experience, shifting the way she thinks, “I’m thankful for coming to this program today as it helped pull me out of the darkness and into the light.” Said the participant
It is all about putting your empowering beliefs into action and taking control of your own life.
