Steps To Overcoming Low Self-Esteem

Monday, June 12th, 2017

June’s Empower focused on discovering your true purpose in life. You may be wondering what knowing your purpose has to do with self-esteem.

If knowing your purpose and living it is key to living a happy, contented life – self-esteem plays a huge role in being able to make that happen. Self-esteem is what allows you to believe you deserve to be happy and enjoy life. When self-esteem is low, its hard to focus on what makes you happy as often the negative self-talk will drown out any positives.

Celebrate Your Success

Monday, January 18th, 2010

It is often the case that mums feel like life is one long treadmill of chores, work and planning. We forget to enjoy many aspects of life such as finding time to spend with the family and taking much-needed time-out from the grindstone!

It is also true that mums don’t give themselves enough credit for the good work they do and the success they achieve in life. So here are a few typical events in life that call for the occasional ‘Time Out Treat’ (in no particular order):

  • Getting the housework done on the day you planned to do it. TREAT: a cup of tea and your favourite biscuit with your feet up.
  • Earning a promotion at work. TREAT: a night out with your partner or friends (without the kids!)
  • Getting round to booking the car in for an overdue service. TREAT: A quick catch up on the phone with a friend.
  • Helping your child understand their homework topic and they achieve an ‘A Grade’ as a result. TREAT: Quality time together.
  • Winning a new contract for your business. TREAT: A mini facial at your local beauty salon.
  • Helping a friend with a personal issue. TREAT: A long soak in the bathtub! (more…)

Goal Setting For Life.

Monday, January 4th, 2010

As Big Ben chimes in the New Year, many of us will be making resolutions in the hope they will change our lives for the better. So how can we make certain that such aspirations will be achievable and enable us to live life according to our own set of needs, desires and values?

Effective goal setting is the key. The first and often hardest step is to identify realistic goals that you believe will change your life for the better. A tip here is to consider all the life-long aspirations you have held but never pursued due to lack of time, self-confidence or both.

How realistic are your aspirations? Do you believe you can achieve these objectives alongside all your other day-to-day duties, such as working, running a busy household and spending quality time with your family? (more…)

The Non-Adventures of Supermum

Thursday, October 1st, 2009

Are you one of the millions of 21st Century mums on the quest to become a Supermum? Are you so desperate to achieve this astounding status that you have absolutely no time to fulfil your own pleasures in life?

Let’s consider the concept of the ‘Supermum’. The title does sound very grand, aspirational and positive, doesn’t it? However, not only is the vision of lycra-clad, cape-wearing mums standing by a school gate hilarious and yet some how horrifying, the concept of such social standing is even more ridiculous. (more…)

Improving ‘Me Time’ Management

Tuesday, September 1st, 2009

Do you often feel as though you are on an endless treadmill in a life full of work and family related duties, which lacks any time for yourself? It is a very common situation in which to find yourself.

Work might be going well, with a promotion on the horizon, and you’ve got the family routine running perfectly, but when was the last time you took some much-needed time-out?

If your work and family duties seem never ending, it is more than likely that you are not truly fulfilled in life. This is because you haven’t given yourself enough care; instead you have neglected your own needs. (more…)

Believe You Can!

Monday, May 25th, 2009

Trying to achieve life-long ambitions can be a long, challenging and very rewarding occupation. However, many of us often sabotage our own success by fostering limiting beliefs and negative thoughts that diminish confidence and lessen self-esteem.

Success can only be achieved by adopting a positive attitude. Believing you can succeed will empower you to give your very best to accomplishing your goals. Always remember, whether you think you can or can’t, you are right.

Set yourself some personal goals: things you really want to achieve. Write them down and keep them to hand at all times to provide a positive focus. Now, consider all the negative thoughts and limiting beliefs that are holding you back from achieving these aspirations. (more…)

Severe Burnout Empowered Me To Help Others

Monday, February 9th, 2009

Tracey Wall, 40, finds helping others is the perfect way to live a wonderful life. Tracey lives in Cheshire with her husband and five year old daughter.

During a holiday on the west coast of Wales, I realised my life was not the perfect picture I envisaged it would. From the outside, everything seemed wonderful. I had a caring husband and a beautiful daughter who both loved me very much. Not only that, but I had a successful career working in management in the finance sector. With the support of my family and friends close by, life really couldn’t get much better. (more…)
