"As with the butterfly, adversity is necessary to build character in people” - Joseph B. Wirthlin 
Know Yourself 
How well do you know yourself? Self-awareness helps you to identify your strengths, how you work best, communicate, influence and respond to different situations. 
We are all different. By understanding the characteristics that make us all unique, we can play to our core strengths and develop our limitations. This way we work better together both in our workplace and personal lives. 
I have come across and completed many personality assessment tools used to identify core skills, strengths, behaviours and traits throughout my working career. 
“The number of stressors has multiplied exponentially: traffic, money, success, work/life balance, the economy, the environment, parenting, family conflict, relationships, disease. As the nature of human life has become far more complicated, our ancient stress response hasn't been able to keep up” - Andrew J. Bernstein 
Modern Day Living 
The reality is that modern day living is very different today compared to 10 or 20 years ago. The way we communicate has changed with the various social media platforms you have access to. Shopping habits have changed with products being delivered to you the same day with a click of a few buttons. Everything is now designed to get you from A to B in the fastest way possible. The mobile phone has become like a critical life organ without which most people can’t even function.
