How Getting Clear On What You ‘Really’ Want & More Importantly ‘Why’ You Want It Is The Key To Making It Happen In 2018

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

How is 2018 treating you so far? Did you know that last Monday was ‘Blue Monday’? Apparently the day of the year when people are at their most sad, all the excitement of Christmas over and not much to look forward to. Apparently being back in work and Summer being a good few months away is enough reason to want to forget the New Year altogether and hibernate.

Well, this may be the case for some people, where I come from we don’t need a holiday company making up days and telling us when to feel happy of sad. That said it is worth noting that Blue Monday is indeed the week before it is predicted most of us fall off the wagon and give up on our New Year Resolutions. Maybe there is something to think about when it comes to staying on track or achieving our goals. I want to touch on the topic of goals or desired outcomes. Usually, we make a goal or commitment based on what we desire as an outcome that we believe we are able to control. These targets are also ones we (usually) think are achievable. If this is the case, why do so many of use not achieve our goals or resolutions? Well there are a few reasons. The first being a lack of clarity on what we really desire.

Getting Your 2018 Off To The Right Start

Monday, January 8th, 2018

If you missed January Empower and last week’s blog, first and foremost I’d like to wish you a very Happy New Year, with greater confidence, balance and clarity for the year ahead.

How has the first week of 2018 treated you so far? Can you believe we’re already a week into 2018?

I do hope you’re well and have had an enjoyable festive period with your families and loved ones. I’ve heard from many clients, colleagues and friends that have unfortunately been afflicted with all sorts of bugs over Christmas, including quite a few with full-blown flu. If this was you, I hope you’re now fighting fit or at least well on your way back to health and ready to embrace all that 2018 has to offer!

What Goals Are Still Outstanding For You? What Can You Do To Ensure your success?

Monday, November 27th, 2017

With December fast approaching it’s the perfect time to reflect on the year so far. I imagine that  you’ve achieved many of the things you set out to do and possibly some things that you didn’t set out to. Congratulations!  You have made it this far. It is quite likely you didn’t achieve everything you wanted to this year but we aren’t as the end of the year just yet so there is still time.

Even the most committed of us are likely to take out eye off the proverbial ball at some point or encounter challenges that completely throw us off track. You’re not going to achieve everything you plan to do, whilst you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take, you don’t hit 100% of them either. Instead of being discouraged by these shortcomings, realise that they’re an opportunity to improve. Each shortcoming is a learning experience, be grateful for them – they’re a chance to become better.

Success: What Does it Mean To You and What Will You Do To Get It?

Monday, October 9th, 2017

This month’s newsletter talked about celebrating how far we have come since the start of 2017. Taking the time to review and celebrate your milestones, no matter how small, is a great way of staying motivated and on track even when progress isn’t being made as fast as you’d like it to.

Looking back on where you were at the start of your journey is always a greater indication of success than where we find ourselves at any given time. It has been said that the true measure of success isn’t where we end up but how far we’ve come. Many agree that the journey and the process of progress and growth is of more concern than the final destination. Do you agree?

Gaining Clarity From January Reflection

Monday, February 13th, 2017

This month’s newsletter covered resolutions and the fact that most are broken by 15th January every year due to a lack of willpower but perhaps more likely a lack of planning for success. Often the changes we want to make require a huge shift and it’s always easier to fall back into old habits than make new ones.

What Set You Back In 2016?

Monday, December 12th, 2016

At the start of every year many people attempt to make good resolutions that will help them achieve specific, longed for goals. Yet as the year progresses, other aspects of life get in the way. Often we can blame our workload and the children’s ever increasing activities; things that are time driven and cannot simply be ignored or set aside for another time. Yet amidst the chaos of family life, there are ways you can prioritise your needs and successfully accomplish your goals. So, will 2017 be the year you make it happen? (more…)

Holiday Dreams Can Come True!

Monday, September 26th, 2016

Throughout September, I have been focusing on the dreams and aspirations mums visualise during the calm of a family break. Often these thoughts for the future end up by the wayside when ‘normality’ resumes. Yet you can change this and create a new reality for you and your family that reflects the lifestyle you truly want and deserve. (more…)
