Just imagine having the ability to get yourself into the most resourceful, empowering frame of mind possible in any given situation.
Would that transform the way that you tackled life's challenges?

Many years ago I started my search for a way to access the resources that I truly believed lay dormant within me - capabilities that were 'sitting on the bench' just waiting to be called onto the pitch.
That's when I discovered these six characters, or 'archetypes' and began to learn how simple and how powerful it can be when you know who to call upon!
What I’ve come to realise is that there really is a highly capable team inside each one of us that is able to bring its abilities to the fore whenever the situation demands it. Discover for yourself.
Six Characters That Determine Your Breakthrough
Like a King, a queen, an emperor, a tribal chieftain or a captain of industry, the Sovereign is commanding, decisive, self-assured and secure in their position of power. Just, fair and supportive, the Sovereign establishes the vision, takes responsibility over their people, provides direction, empowers others, creates order and sets fair and positive boundaries.
Confident of their innate authority, the Sovereign’s primary purpose is to direct the affairs of their realm to bring peace, order and prosperity for all.
Warriors take action and accomplish missions. They courageously overcome challenges by using appropriate strength and determination, and are responsible for ensuring boundaries are enforced. They are skilled, capable and competitive and often confrontational. They will always stand up for themselves and express themselves openly and passionately. Warriors are direct in their dealings, disciplined, loyal and dependable – prepared to endure pain and driven to finish the task at hand.
Wise, learned, perceptive and hungry for truth, the Sage is known for their remarkable knowledge and discernment. Rational and logical in their approach, they have a certain detachment from people and events, and tend to be less comfortable expressing their emotions. The Sage seeks a factual understanding of things, searching out hard evidence until they arrive at the truth. The Sage is committed to continual learning and gaining accurate and superior knowledge in every situation.
Visionary, creative and charismatic, Mystics are very good at bringing transformation and evoking change. With an aire of fascination and evident delight in mystery, the Mystic seems to draw upon unearthly powers of intuition and foresight. They naturally (or supernaturally?) spread their belief that somehow all will come good and this keeps them stable during crises. Because of this, they can be very influential characters but they would rarely want to act by force or raw authority. To the Mystic, life is all about: making dreams come true.
Lovers feel life deeply. They are trusting and open with others; seeking empathy and harmony with all. Comfortable in expressing their emotions, they are playful and spontaneous all the while building relationships and nurturing connections. Lovers tend to have an appreciation of beauty and are drawn towards the creative arts, poetry and music. Lovers are not just the Romeos and Juliets of the world; they are those whose primary focus is on other people, believing everyone has their own, intrinsic value. The Lover thinks that life is all about: connection, harmony and true feelings.
The Jester delights in finding the funny side to any situation. Refusing to get too serious, they share their light-hearted view of life with those around them - though not all would find this welcome. They are colourful and playful, determined to live life like it's a game. Boredom, rigidity and monotony will often spur them into action. The Jester thinks that life is all about: making things fun.
