The Ultimate Life Summit (ULS) is a unique, life-changing program for students, young adults, and educators. Over the course of seven days in beautiful Orlando, Florida, attendees learn essential life skills and success habits during morning and early afternoon seminars, and experience exciting world-class attractions in the afternoon and evening. ULS provides attendees with the awareness and success tools to become high achievers. Seminar topics include leadership, career exploration, personal accountability, and social responsibility.
The ULS is taught by leading experts in the field of youth empowerment and attracts participants from around the country and the world. The teaching style is extremely interactive and filled with hands-on activities, educational games, and real-world content that is relevant and age appropriate. ULS provides the framework for attendees to identify their unique strengths and talents, and to maximize their potential to live lives filled with achievement, passion, and purpose.
A major focus of the week is to guide each participant in the creation and customization of their own written Ultimate Life Plan. Attendees leave ULS with a heightened sense of optimism, a positive attitude, success habits, unique life skills, and a personalized Life Plan that enables them to immediately take action.
A primary purpose of the ULS is to facilitate each attendee’s generation of a personal Life Plan. The process of thinking and planning for one's future is rare at any level, and especially so for young people. While unusual, it is incredibly advantageous for young people to experience this life-planning process. Statistics show that people who think about and plan for their future ultimately achieve much higher levels of success.
With a clear vision of their Life Plan, individuals are more efficient in their activities, more effective in their choices, more determined to persevere and overcome obstacles, and less likely to make negative life choices. The process we take students through mirrors the habits of many high achievers. The first step is to take students through an introspective journey that will help them begin to uncover and leverage their talents and interests. Students also identify their dreams, aspirations and core values. Once explored, students begin to align these talents, dreams and values with synergistic paths for education, careers, relationships and social responsibility.
The final component of the process it to define the activities and action steps students need to execute today and how to review and adjust their plans in the future. All students take home their own Life Plan, along with a positive vision for their future. Additionally, they will have the awareness and motivation to take the appropriate action steps toward exploring and expanding their talents to achieve the lives of their dreams.
The Ultimate Life Summit is conducted by the team at 7 Mindsets, a Social Emotional Learning (SEL) company that distills extensive research on the nature of happiness and success into tools that provide a new language and operating system for schools and classrooms.
