As an academic counselor, I talk to students all day, so I am very aware of their stresses, worries, and concerns. They talk to me about their grades, schedules, and professional plans, and they also share with me their personal stories, as the personal and professional are inevitably connected.
This up-and-coming generation is very inspiring to me. They have so many ideas and are motivated to make real change. But I also see a lot of fear, worry, concern, isolation, as well as excessive pressure to “be someone”. Sometimes they don’t realize they already “are someone”, someone amazing, if they just could open their eyes and see themselves without all the stresses covering up their shining talents and skills.
The YesPlus course helps them realize their potential by assisting them to remove stress. It allows them to wake up to the notion that they are unique, powerful, and amazing individuals. By removing the stress, they allow themselves to see who they truly are: amazing, inspiring, and powerful shining stars – ready to make changes to this world that is so in need of their contribution.
