I feel truly grateful for the opportunity I had to seek myself and grow through this program. The coordinators of this particular seminar have put their soul into building something so beautiful and it shows in the way they present their work. No seminar has ever helped me in such a fundamental way. I can share with you some commitments that I have made in practice.
NINE MONTHS LATER
I can share with you some commitments I took during Eudaimonia intervention that I have made in practice.
I try and break down some of my limiting beliefs every day. The battle is hard, but learning and change take effort.
I have practiced good communication to an excellent degree. I now try to approach many issues with empathy and it shows in the way those around me treat me after our interactions. I use the power I have for good, I don’t abuse it, and the gratitude I receive is heartwarming.
I now hold a leadership position in the volunteer group I belong to. I am not afraid to set high goals because I trust its members to achieve them together. I have learned to accept the “we”.
I progress rapidly in my work because I am not afraid to claim something more whenever I can. I have already trained 4 people, all much older and more experienced than me. I will be going to my second conference this year. Right now as I’m writing to you I’m planning my first project (and I’m still an undergraduate! I haven’t even started my 4th year yet!) In a few months I’m going to Sardinia for an internship at a research center.
None of this would have happened without the thoughts and stimuli from Bliss. I have no words to describe how much it really helped me. It was the right seminar at the right time in my life. Thank you for everything, I am truly grateful.
It would be my great honor to help you with your project in any way I can, beyond advertising and testimonials. I believe in your vision and want to contribute to its realization.
Thank you again for your time. If you can, please pass on my gratitude to the rest of the EUDAIMONIA team.
I can say the most important hours of my life until now, I personally had the good fortune to watch the program and work with Mr. Mavromatis. Through this collaboration I learned to use my time effectively, to deepen and utilize my strengths but also to look at the world with a different perspective that I would not have had the opportunity to do otherwise. Finally, I acquired life lessons and a way of thinking that have already seemed very useful to me and will follow me for the rest of my life.
One of the best seminars I have attended. Both the quality of the material and the people who worked on it, managed in a period of two months to pass on their knowledge and experience to us. Also within this time frame an incredible group of people was created where everyone had different experiences but we managed to work together as much as possible. I am grateful for each and every one of you!
Eudaimonia was a special journey through which we developed skills and got to know ourselves more. It is a process very different from what the average young person/student encounters at university and it allowed us to think and see our everyday routine, our future work and our personal relationships with another glance.
It is an experience where everyone learns, shares and improves together, creating happy memories.
It is a very beautiful trip that was very worth it and it helps to get to know yourself and people at same age better.
Completing this journey of “Eudaimonia” leaves me with the best impressions. It was my pleasure to meet such interesting people and to be given the opportunity to discuss my concerns and thoughts. I definitely got to know myself better and got supplies useful for my future.
Mr Mavromatis acts as a mentor giving you the ability to meet and acquire skills that under normal circumstances you would learn later in your professional career. He gives you the knowledge and the way through his vast experience.
Simultaneously with the development of the individual’s character, he points out a lot about professionalism, teamwork and elements of leadership. As well as the ability to perceive the strengths and weaknesses of your character.
But the most important thing was the foundations and the cultivation of proper communication. An invaluable skill!
The hours with Mr Mavromatis were always full of learning, advice and self-improvement which could be achieved because he acted as a mentor. He always wanted you to become better, more mature and more communicative.
Goals and dreams exist to be made real. The guidance of Mr Dimitris played a decisive role for me to get on the path of success of my own.
A unique learning journey!
The Eudaimonia program was exactly what I needed to learn, to be more mature by building awareness to start building my life and solving problems beyond my academic pursuits.
Through the videos, interactive Power Points and group exercises and games I managed to understand more about myself, my strengths and how I can exploit them to achieve my goals and my dreams.
Mr. Papakonstantinou and Mr. Mavromatis were always there to support the team sometimes taking the role of a peer minor and other times that experienced mentor.
The hours spent with them were full of learning, advice, interesting discussions and enormous gain for me in terms of developing my character and improving myself as a person.
As communication is both one of the greatest difficulties and a human asset, understanding and achieving bliss must be the goal of all my peers so that we can thrive living a life full of unforgettable experiences and develop into pioneers who will solve the problems that threaten the future of humanity.
The 6 days of the EDAIMONIA seminar were all very interesting, because in each one we dealt with different topics which were all useful. In particular, the seminar gave me the opportunity to develop personality traits that I had not dealt with before.
It also helped me discover new things that I was interested in that I didn’t know about, and that’s why I’m happy with my choice to follow this trip.
“Eudaimonia” was a journey to myself.
It helped me to know and understand new things both about myself and the world.
Mr Mavromatis and Mr Papakonstantinou, apart from being two excellent persons and examples to follow, through Eudaimonia they made me see life with another eye, better, more optimistic, more blissful!Read More
Through all the tests we did I understood things about myself and your team taught me how to use them properly. For all this, I owe a big thank you not only to you but also to K. Hara and Elena because they played a decisive role in the whole trip!
Mr. Mavromatis is an excellent and rare Person, with a capital A! The story of our acquaintance and cooperation began 5 years ago, with the “Formula1 in Schools” project.
I had the opportunity to receive from him not only all the necessary knowledge about the project but also advice that follows me even today!
From a teenager, she turned me into a mature girl, who constantly wants to develop. He passed on values, concerns, knowledge and taught me to never be complacent! I feel lucky that we met and that I had the opportunity to develop as a person and a professional thanks to him!
Thank you Mr. Mavromatis! And congratulations about Eudaimonia, your new project which aims to give this knowledge to more youths.
The most impactful hours of my life. Mr. Mavromatis guided a truly wonderful trip of my character growth and introduced me to the ultimate tools of becoming a competent team-player and leader.
This trip holistically approached the importance of effective communication and vision, which gave me the confidence to pursue and achieve any goal. He made me believe in myself. A true life lesson.
For me, “Ευδαιμονία” worked mainly as an occasion to do a little research on the subject of self-improvement and to see myself a little more objectively.
This is, I think, the reason that the other children and I cooperated optimally and became a group.
That each of us made this mini-review about himself and recognized him next to him. I have associated bliss with the team which is definitely a successful chapter for me.
What I really understood was that by working together you do achieve your goals, which to be honest I thought was a bit “stupid”. The tests we did framed me even more.
Having finished watching Eudaimonia, I am pleased with the general theme that was followed, which strengthened my thinking. A dynamic/interactive learning tool that was a mechanism for improvement and contributed to the personal development of those involved.
The instructor (Mr. Papakonstantinou) created a pleasant atmosphere and encouraged dialogue. Through the meetings, the opportunity was given for an exchange of views, which helped to strengthen the individual effort of each participant towards our common goal.
Personally, I liked the part about managing the resources available to everyone to solve all kinds of problems the most, as it led to the development of logical approaches directly applicable to my everyday situations.
Very beautiful feelings and impressions left by the Eudaimonia intervention through which I unlocked a different perspective that helped me see better the perspectives of everyday life.
The whole team during the seminar we made leaps and bounds in getting to know ourselves and the other team members. We discerned our strengths and weaknesses and learned better about our mental characteristics.
I was particularly impressed by the fact that I actually listened to others, developing teamwork and cooperation. It was one of the most useful programs I have attended with multiple proven benefits.
Through this collaboration I was given the opportunity to acquire and develop many social skills, I learned to seek effective communication and to thoroughly manage each situation by finding appropriate solutions.
In the years that followed I was called to put into practice what I learned and I am very grateful to have explored new aspects of my personality in this way. Really in the last few years I understand every day how useful what we learned was and thank you very much.
“Working with Mr. Mavromatis was a great gift. He helped me especially in dealing with challenging tasks, in planning and executing an action plan, but also in unlocking possibilities of myself that I had not imagined existed.
On the “journey” he taught me how to present my work in such a way as to achieve the best result.
I feel very lucky to have worked with Mr. Mavromatis as there are very few people we meet who help us grow so tall in our entire life. And Mr. Mavromatis is definitely one of them.
Thank you for all the good things I got from our collaboration. You guided me, inspired me and showed me the way to create.
You pointed out my weaknesses without touching me. You highlighted my strengths.
But at the same time, you helped me understand the value of teamwork.
Finally, I feel grateful that you believed in me and showed me that anything is possible with hard work and the right support.”
What has stayed with me most from our acquaintance is the wonderful atmosphere that was created between us working as a team, a result of the importance that Mr. Dimitris gave to teamwork and communication.
After all, he always told us: “Man’s biggest problem it’s communication.”
The cooperation and association of young people with prestigious people with many years of experience in multiple fields leads not only to the sharpening of personal abilities and potential, but also to the survival of each young person in an increasingly competitive society.
So I, personally, who worked with Mr. Mavromatis, I have to say that with the lessons he gave me, I learned to give importance to work matters, to take every opportunity I see and to move forward, to constantly develop and not to put it down in my life .
The constant pressure, perfectionism, leadership personality, high work and academic performance as well as the unceasing effort and passion of this particular person are some of the characteristics that I can recognize as the ideal qualifications for a young person entering the workforce of his society , and which now after years of collaboration I can say that I own them too (or at least I try 😊 ).
Although a few years have passed since our last collaboration with K. Mavromatis, I still consider him a friend, mentor and travel companion (and not a development consultant but a life consultant).
Our collaboration with Mr. Mavromatis started 5 years ago. A teenager at the time, full of stubbornness and enthusiasm I sat next to create the tasks of my then group.
But, in addition to the assignments, I also started writing my personal story.
After endless phone calls, meetings and meetings we developed a relationship beyond professional, winning along the way 1 world championship, 1 panhellenic and a 6th world place in international school competitions.
Now, from the position of System Integrator and having undertaken one of the most complex technological projects, I can say that whatever you advised me was necessary in this long journey. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything.
I had the privilege to work with Mr. Mavromatis, imparted to me some of the most crucial abilities needed to succeed in our daily lives.
Even now, six years later, I can still remember a lot of the advice and lessons he gave me, particularly those about teamwork, communication, and leadership abilities, which proved to be crucial for both my professional and personal lives.
He is a unique person who can comprehend the people around him and how to treat them appropriately and correspondingly, enabling them to perform at their peak.
His sense of humor and character, which were always able to overcome the age difference, made us feel equal and gave us the strength to keep up the struggle no matter what it was. He has always seemed to me to be a friend and a mentor who works hard to bring out the best in each person.
Mr. Mavromatis has found the key to the youth, in his own unique way. Every child has his talents and strengths, his own way and he has managed to give us exactly these skills to develop and face the world!
He is a man who believed in me and through his knowledge and advice, which continue to be the foundation of me, we made my teenage dream, which until then was the impossible, a reality!
Working with him has transformed me from a shyer child into a girl full of dynamism and vision who is not afraid to chase her dreams!
