If you listen to your fears, you will die never knowing what a great person you might have been." - Robert H Schuller

It's the content part and looks at how the global market is changing, what are the future skills required for the SA economy, where and how you want to fit in and how to manage yourself to achieve your personal goals and dreams. The streams we look at

As the word suggests you will be launching yourself to explore your talents, and put them into action. Its aim is to help you develop resilience and to help you take responsibility for your own decisions and actions. To be held accountable and live with the consequences of the decision that you act upon. Without the risk of taking ownership for your own decisions and actions to show initiative much of the content and theory will become of no use. You will also see the value of networking and using your own initiative. Either in the voluntary sector, further study or working world.

True North

To know that you are heading in the right direction, you will need to know WHERE YOU ARE NOW your current reality. You will need to identify your strengths weaknesses talents as well as areas of development, you could say the route to your true north.

Then when you become aware of where you are heading you need to take a step, INITIATIVE in the right direction. Nothing will happen if you do not move. Without taking action, your vision and objectives are merely empty dreams. As you launch out, new opportunities emerge sometimes in the most unexpected and surprising ways, even if you make mistakes.

By constantly replanning and acting you will make progress in life. When you look back you will see and be amazed at your achievements as a result of your resilience and purpose-driven action.
