Mark Victor Hansen to present “The Power of Focus”

In the area of human potential, few experts are better known and more respected than Mark Victor Hansen, author of the best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul book series. For more than 25 years, Hansen has focused on helping people and organizations from all walks of life reshape their personal vision of what is possible.

You can hear Hansen’s motivational message, “The Power of Focus” on Friday, May 23, 2003, at 8 p.m. on the campus of Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic.

“The Power of Focus” will help you learn how to get past old procrastination patterns and ingrained habits that keep you from your targets. Create healthy new strategies and implement consistent persistence. Learn when to ask and when to act. And find ways to scrabble over any barrier or stalling tactic to achieve your better future, your fully realized and capable you.
