Working life can feel like a never-ending masterclass on how to fit in. Comparing ourselves to others and to standards that are not our own, we strive to prove, mould and 'fix' ourselves. It's so easy to feel overwhelmed, depleted and inadequate.

But what if true success and vitality flows from being who we are, not changing who we are?

What if everything we need is already inside of us?

What if we just need to release the things that weigh us down?

This is book is for anyone who:

Believes that work can be life-enhancing, not soul-destroying

Is sick and tired of trying to 'fix', mould and prove themselves

Wants to experience greater fulfillment, success and vitality

Beneath all the layers of conditioning, under the masks and armour, we all want the same things. We want to live and work in a way that honours the truth of who we are. We want to feel seen, really seen.

John Mellencamp sang, 'Life goes on, long after the thrill of living is gone' but it does not have to be this way. The practice of self-fidelity lifts us out of a half-dead existence to rediscover the thrill of living - through our work. This practice supports us to wake up and reconnect to our true nature and to our abundant inner natural resources. Self-Fidelity is a simple, yet powerful practice of remembrance and reconnection.

We can all empower ourselves to reimagine our working lives.

As we restore our faith in ourselves, we restore our faith in each other.
