The Egosystem

The Egosystem is about 6 simple points that lead you to a better version of yourself.

Self-awareness is core to being able to apply yourself meaningfully in your life, and towards your life goals. If you are not self-aware, you will be driven by the way others see you, and not by what you know to be true of yourself.

Take back your control of your emotions and your future and own your life. It is entirely possible by applying the six basic principles of The Egosystem to learn how to:

  1. Understand your needs
  2. Recognise the assumptions that you make
  3. Face the fears that you feel
  4. Consciously choose your actions
  5. Understand the responses that you get from others
  6. And finally, realise how your perceptions shape your needs

I am amazed at the accuracy of my handwriting analysis. Your intuitive ability makes it that much more insightful. I am impressed and certainly look forward to reading your book.  (Broadcast journalist, radio and TV presenter, therapist, and trauma counsellor)

After reading the preview I was curious to see what the book had to offer. Needless to say I was not disappointed. I found that in many instances the book was speaking to me as I found myself reading certain passages over and over again because I could relate to it in so many ways….


I read the Prologue and the first chapter! I am very intrigued!! I could not stop nodding my head reading it. It’s a very self-aware view of things. But I can’t stop laughing reading your book. But in a good way! “Do not confuse mindfulness with meditation or reflection. They are each unique in their…
