I have spent more than twenty years in and out of corporate environments as an employee, and later on as a business consultant. I have advised small start-ups as well as giants like Apple, Sony and eBay. I have worked across many industries and geographical locations. I know the pressure those who work in a corporate environment face, the toll it takes on their energy. I have seen what it does to people and I have felt it myself. Over the years it has become clearer and clearer to me that there is a real need for people to get in touch with their own power; to heal themselves, to lead happy and fulfilled lives, while still working in these environments.
This book is a mix of my experiences in the corporate world and my experimentation with the power of intuition and energy. I have personally tried and tested all these steps. Not only have they worked for me, they have also changed my life. I have moved from being a stressed-out consultant permanently on the edge of burnout to a happy and fulfilled individual who mixes work with passion for life in a sustainable way.
At frst I started experimenting with a few mindfulness and meditation techniques that allowed me to get in touch with my body and keep my mind still. I slowly added more practices, inspired by yoga, meditation, various lectures I had attended and the courses I have taken to develop my intuition. By trial and error I found out what worked for me and what did not.
I got results. My life improved. I felt more sure of myself, less volatile and less prone to stress. Slowly I solidified these techniques and concepts into seven steps that I started practising daily. The quality of projects I attracted and the calibre of the people that I worked with got better and better. Gradually, I started talking about these steps to other stressed-out corporate people. They told me they got results too. Over the last years, my tentative attempts have become full routines. I now perform these steps automatically. I know they work for me and for others. I know they can work for you too.
