Our Islands, Our Future

Maui resident, author and speaker Steven Snyder is one of the world’s foremost experts on Accelerated Learning and Personal Development. He has made several thousand presentations in more than 90 countries. Throughout his career, Snyder taught empowerment through counseling sessions, workshops and seminars to help people maximize their full potential. His newly published book, Focused Passion, teaches how to create success in all areas of life. “In every situation we can turn problems into sources of motivation, creativity, and positive challenges,” said Snyder. “There is a ‘new you’ that you can breakthrough to. This wise and powerful ‘new you’ is the sum-total of your unique gifts, talents, and abilities understood from a higher perspective. It is a special identity—the doorway to personal and professional mastery, to purpose and passion in life, right here, right now.”

Presented by Mental Health Kokua, Snyder’s upcoming event, Mindful Happiness, will be held on March 23, 2018 at 7pm at the McCoy Studio Theater in the Maui Arts & Cultural Center, Kahului. He will discuss the experience of happiness as a choice, an attitude, a way to be, regardless of circumstances. Attendees will discover that success is not a way to happiness, however happiness is often a way to success. With a focus on specific keys to a happier life, the evening of mindfulness will begin with a screening of The Mindfulness Movie.

“Mindfulness is the psychological process of bringing one’s attention to experiences occurring in the present moment,” said Snyder. “Knowing that happiness is not primarily based on your circumstances eliminates projecting worrisome thoughts and anxious feeling into the future. More than anything else it is based on what you think by embracing and agreeing with your positive thoughts. In fact, painful experiences can be changed into valuable agents for growth and change. Every thought you think and emotion you have can bring you happiness,” he said. “Choose happiness. It might be the best choice of your life!”

Attendees at the Mindful Happiness Presentation will learn to master a focused, powerful state that creates an environment for happiness.
