Back Yourself

"Back Yourself: Don’t Give Up When You Have to Step Up" by Rinus Le Roux

| Website | The ways in which we have defined success, survival, education and mastery up to now have expired. We are at a new junction. Many of the practices and behaviours we adopted in the past in order to navigate our lives have lost their relevance and there is an urgent need to find new ways of thinking around behaviour that will sustain the future. The information and skills we acquired through the educational system and our own experience are outdated. In the new economy the mere fact that you have completed a degree, acquired a skill or learned a trade will no longer guarantee you a job or an income. We are now all in virgin territory when it comes to work, behaviour and earning an income. This book provides a number of concepts and behaviours that may assist you in reshaping your approach to work and to life, equipping you with a better chance to deal with both your present and your future.
