"You've got to find yourself first. Everything else will follow."
Charles de Lint
In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it’s easy to get caught up in the expectations and demands of others. We may find ourselves on autopilot, going through the motions without truly understanding who we are or what brings us joy and fulfilment. That’s why it’s crucial to take the time for self-discovery and embark on a journey of finding ourselves.
I recognise the significance of this process and offer an array of resources known as Find Yourself resources. These resources serve as guiding lights, helping individuals navigate the path to self-awareness, personal growth, and career fulfilment. By engaging with these resources, you can unlock your true potential, set meaningful goals, overcome obstacles, and live a life that resonates with your authentic self.

Find Yourself resources aim to create awareness of self, values, and motivation and describe personal goal achievement strategies. This is a critical stage of the career stage of life and the career improvement process that every other stage builds on.
