This course is totally vested in helping people find meaning and purpose in their lives.

  • It’s for you if you yearn for harmony and fulfilment in your life
  • It’s for you if you’re kept awake at night by Henry David Thoreau’s words, “Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them”
  • It’s for you if want to do work that matters and make a contribution to your own well-being and that of others
  • It’s for you if you want to matter

If you want to live an authentic life full of security, joy, harmony, gratitude, power and fulfilment, then consider changing your story.

About Jacques de Villiers

Jacques de VilliersJacques has been running goal-setting workshops both for his clients and in the public arena since 1998.

As he has grown as a human being his ‘goal-setting’ workshops have gone through a number of iterations.

He started teaching goal-setting workshops with an extrinsic motivation (‘what physical possessions can I amass?’) philosophy using SMART goals and vision boards. As he figured out his own life, he realised that extrinsic goals made people happy for a brief time and were ultimately quite useless when it came to the real needs that we as humans need fulfilled so that we can feel powerful, secure, joyful, happy and fulfilled.

He realised that the iteration that he was putting out was fundamentally wrong and didn’t serve the people he wanted to help. Thus, in 2007 he shelved his goal setting workshops until around 2011 so that he could reflect on what it would take to bring a piece of process to his audience that was authentic and actually worked. The workshop he crafted thereafter (Change Your Story) is a useful process that helps people get from where they are to where they want to be by taking the inner journey of discovery. The journey is that of a warrior whose biggest battles are the inner ones. Although, self-discovery is not always an easy one, it is an essential one if we want to be truly happy and fulfilled.

Change Your Story was very inspirational and brought clarity to daily emotions I have been finding in my life. I was left feeling motivated and raring to take charge of my life. Better than Robin Sharma.
