Mon, August 22nd @ 6:30 PM – Atlanta REIA West
Atlanta REIA West Dinner Meeting
“Change Your Thinking & Change Your Life!” with Catherine McFarland

Catherine McFarlandTONIGHT, Monday, August 22nd at 6:30 PM at the Altanta REIA West Monthly Meeting taking place at the Cherokee Cattle Company Restaurant in Marietta, Catherine McFarland will share with us easy to use, day-by-day steps to change our way of thinking. As humans, we tend to become what we think about and focus upon on a daily basis. Some of our negative thinking, including overcoming fears, feelings of not being good enough, not deserving the best life has to offer, defeatist attitudes, etc, can really hold us back. The Law of Attraction really does work and the universe gives us exactly what we ask for whether it is negative or positive. Learn to ask for what you really want with simple, easy to use techniques that really work. The most powerful thing that changes our lives is not money, bulked up muscles, or super heroes… it is our brains and the thoughts we put into them. You’ve probably heard it said, “Garbage in, garbage out, garbage sticks!” It’s a vital part of our success to master our own thoughts on a daily basis. Whether we think you are setting your goals or not… we are, by simple thoughts, negative or positive, affecting what we become and the outcome of our lives. Join us at the meeting tonight and bring an open mind and something to take lots of notes to hear this life changing presentation. Catherine guarantees you will leave this presentation with tools you can use, right now to change your thinking and change your life!
