    Knowing You: The difference that makes the difference
    by Dr Amanda Foo-Ryland

    Many people spend a lifetime waiting for something to happen to them before their life can be changed. Winning the lottery; getting a better job; starting a new relationship; moving house; making more money; being in better health etc, yet it never happens. Humans are at the mercy of what-ever comes their way, and they often blame those things for their circumstances. In 'Knowing You', Dr Amanda Foo-Ryland reveals how external elements cannot make life better and that it is in fact, when and how people take control of their lives, change course and become their own navigators that things actually start to change for them. 'Knowing You' reveals that the only thing holding them back is what they believe. It allows readers to push their self-doubt to the side, in favour of beliefs that better serve them.
