How do we access our truest self?
“You have to take the time to understand yourself to realise what brings you joy. There is a difference between what we think will bring us joy and what actually does. We have to understand the difference between desire and true, soul needs.
There are jobs that naturally elevate our talent, and then there are also jobs that don’t play to our skillset. More access to and understanding of self allows us to thrive at work, without trying to understand ourselves, we are vulnerable to more stress.”
What advice would you give to entrepreneurs reading this who might be feeling anxious about the future of their businesses?
“You have to be constantly connected to self. You have to know when to push down on the accelerator, and when to put the breaks on. But also, life is a dance. Those late nights are inevitable, but you have to remember to compensate for them on the weekend. Our needs are a constant learning process.
Some stress can be a very good thing. Sometimes being uncomfortable at work means it’s your growth stage, you’re more tired because you’re carving out new pathways for yourself.
Investing in workshops such as Access To Self, or coaching, or any sort of personal development is truly the best sort of investment you can make. You’ve got to learn your own language.”
