New Year’s Resolutions are a waste. Don’t be sucked in.

new-years-resolutions-wp-postIf You want to resolve to .. set goals, be a better person, lose weight, exercise more, save money etc,

THEN

making a New Year’s Resolution won’t save You.

Your life, your actions aren’t predicated on a date on a calendar.

You can make changes to Your Life on ANY day and at any given point in a day.

Waiting for New Year’s Eve, hoping your fairy tale will come true is simply wishful thinking.

You Are better than that.

2017 is Yours if You want it.

Plan for it to be so, Now.

Flick the switch.

Real plans, real goals, real achievement comes from the spark within You to make it happen.

And You can do that at any time.

NOW is always the best time.

Be Relentless.

Plan. Execute. Follow through.

Life IS Too short.

Delay = Regret.

Please enjoy a massive Christmas and Festive season.

Are You playing the Smoke & Mirrors game?

It’s Time to Get Real, don’t You think?

This time of year, heading toward Christmas & into another brand New Year is often a time for reflection.  Again.

The truth is, You don’t need a New Year to cause You to reflect. You can do that anytime.

But now that we are on the verge of  that time again , let’s have a look at the state of play.

I’ve used “again” twice already because I see so many times, people promising themselves that next year will be different.

Only to forget that ‘promise’ by 14 days in.

It’s time to get Real, don’t You think?get-real-set-goals-li-1

Start by setting the GOALS that WILL elevate your life.

NOW. [because Now is always the best time].

Life IS Too short to play with 2nd rate goals. And to delay starting on 1st rate goals.

Push yourself further. Believe me, You can.

Expand your opportunities, vision, daily thoughts.

Now, follow through on those goals .. until You succeed.

Giving up will not be an option for You in 2017 [if You ARE ready to get Real].

Your goals may be small [to start with], however if they focus on improving your life .. then they are Big!

2017 will be YOUR Year  if You get cracking Now.

What if .. You run out of time

Time, as You know, can be your worst enemy And also can be Your best friend.

So it makes sense that the time that You have is used for best purpose, whatever that may be for you.

However, is that what You do?

Distractions are part & parcel of life. Let’s be honest about that.

Time gets wasted, I’ve done that.

But there comes a time .. [unintentional pun] .. when you realise how valuable your time really is.

Life IS Too short

Life IS Too short

What would Your life be like? .. without the continual excitement of ..

Setting & achieving Goals.

Enjoying Fun, doing work that You Love, spending quality time with family/friends & creating Adventure.

Continual is the key here. You may be currently only doing this in spits & spurts.

Which leaves the rest of your time largely idle.

A Suggestion ..  How about You make your time your priority and make the things that are important to you an absolute priority.

It is often said that “Now” is the best time to do anything.

It is often said because in a vast majority of cases it is TRUE.

Especially when it comes to maximising your time with invigorating action.

Doing what is important to & for You IS incredibly liberating.

I strongly suggest that You take this on board before it’s too late.

Life IS too short. Regret is a bitter pill to swallow.

Self Discovery for the over 40’s. The questions are just the start

I’ve said this before & I’ll say it again .. mid life is golden.

You have done the hard yards. You may wish to build upon your hard work in your existing area of Life and/or work or You may not.

After all, Choice is an amazing tool at Your disposal.

Would you now be asking yourself ”is this the way I want to continue to live the rest of my Life?

If Life is treating You well in every area, then please continue on. I’m proud of You.

However, if it is not ..

Well I am not hear to tell you to pack it all in & venture into the unknown totally unprepared.

No, what I am saying is reaching the mid life years can elicit ”a change in thinking” in some. If you are perfectly happy doing what you do then do more of it.

If You aren’t & you want to do introduce some positive changes in your life, start asking yourself some questions before you step any further, like

Discover Yourself

Discover Yourself


“What really makes my heart sing”

”What will make my family proud of me”

”What will make Me proud of me”

”How will I feel knowing that I didn’t give my best shot,that I didn’t take a risk[s]”

”what is the worst that can happen”

“what support do I have”

”how far outside my comfort sphere am I prepared to step”

”am I the person I want to be” or “who do I want to be”

We are complex beings. There is a lot going on inside of us. And there is a lot more inside of us that we do not allow out. Untapped potential is what I am alluding to here.

This untapped potential can remain dormant for a Lifetime. What a waste.

Now more than ever, is your opportunity [there will be a lot of opportunities during mid life] to start tapping.

Not your toes, start tapping in to your potential – you have a lot of this inside of you.

Discovering your hidden reserves is a great start to living the rest of your Life with unlimited possibilities and endless horizons.

How about we make time for some more questions that you may wish to consider?

“How do I live my dream or ‘best’ Life”

”How will I know what is the best path to follow”

”Why am I afraid of what may lie ahead of me”

”Who will save me if I fall”

”how will I adapt to the changes that I want to make”

And now time for some more homegrown guidance & feedback;

I discovered some pretty cool things after I turned 40.

Turning 50 opened up more revelations for Me. Learning more about myself & the endless learnings that can be explored were just two. And they are a pretty important two.

Continuing to learn will ensure that you continue to grow as a person. This forms the base, the solid foundation for the rest of your Mid Life Adventure.

And learning [greater] Self Belief will go a long way to helping you answer the questions I just posed above, together with tapping in to your reserves of potential.

Don’t be afraid to fall, I know that it is scary.

Just have the faith & belief in yourself that you will get up .. and you will.

Therein lies your power. Your power to engage with & prosper from your “mid Life” years.

A couple more questions to finish,

  • ”what will be the deal breaker that will get me over the hump & get me to the line”
  • “what’s my end game, what do I really want, who do I want to become”

At the end of the day, the questions that I have shared can only be answered by you. However to gain the most from Life, questions are a great way to search within You & achieve what you want.

If you need a little help kickstarting your answers, I am available to help.

The better the question, the greater the gain.

Can I leave you with this final thought?

” Don’t just accept what is .. consider what if “

In other words .. consider & open up all possibilities and have the Belief that you can do it.

How tolerant are You, really?

What types of things do you tolerate in your life?

Is this a question that often comes to mind?

Probably not would be my guess. Therefore it is a question that you must ask of yourself from time to time.

Because there may be some things that You are putting up with .. that really You should let go of. For example ..

What about excuses?

What about continual disappointments?

Do you complain about Lack of …..?

What about frustrations, put downs, same old same old?How tolerant are You WP Blog post

Because the “opposites” may look like this ..

Fun, surprise, joy, success, spontaneity, achievement, money, love, friendship, goals.

It doesn’t have to be this way!

Clear the clutter, it’s time for a fresh start.

You only have one life to live and from today you are your No. 1 priority.

Because if you are not in tune, the people nearest and dearest to you can not prosper. Your health and wellbeing are paramount.

By ‘clearing the clutter’ I am talking about physical and mental ..

get rid of the physical things around you that no longer serve any worthwhile purpose and take time to clear your mind of unwanted/ negative thoughts that are holding you back/ stopping you from being the person the great creator intended.

If you want to let go of what you have been unnecessarily putting up with [I hope that You do[, then aim for a fresh start now  ..  renew, revitalise, re-ignite your sense of purpose and start living the life that you deserve.

What does being “Amazing” really mean?

Hi again fellow Life Lover.

”Amazing” is one of those words that is thrown around with sometimes [reckless] abandon.

Especially when it applies to people.

“Go, Be Amazing” is one such example.

And that’s what I am about to tell You to do. Or Be, in actual fact.Be .. Amazing

Now before You start thinking that this word “amazing” only applies to other people .. think again.

It can easily apply to You, if you are prepared to BE.

But before I get to that ..

Are You still trying to fit in, rather than trying to raise yourself above the mediocrity & sameness of it all?

I get that You may feel safe simply being a team player or be happy simply being in the middle.

And there’s nothing particularly wrong with that.

However, every team still needs a leader .. and the “middle” gets rather claustrophobic.

So, why not You? .. aim to be a leader, that is. A Leader in and of your own life.

You see, being Amazing isn’t about [though it can be] all the pomp & ceremony, fireworks and Big Brass Bands. [They come later].

Being Amazing is being prepared to step up to the plate and  .. lead your life on a more successful path.

So, go and Be amazing. Step Up and Step Out.

You CAN  do this.

Will my current ‘choices’ get me to where I want to be in Life?

I have often read that Choice is the most powerful force in The Universe.

And I tend to agree with that.

Everything that You do [and not do] comes down to Choice.

Now that’s out of the way, how are Your Choices working for You?

Are You making the types of choices that will enrich your life? .. for example.Choices WP Blog post

The main reason that most dissengage from the power of their Choices is this ..

It’s very easy to go into ‘auto mode’ where one day merges into the next .. and the next .. and so on.

Before you know it a month has slipped by, then a year, then five.

And if you remain in ‘auto mode’ that entire time .. well. That’s 5 years of Your life, gone.

Auto mode is by default a choice. However it’s rarely one that You have made knowingly.

It’s simply a habit that you have grown into, like so many others.

I forgive You for that because I have done the same [in the past].

However, I won’t forgive you if You continue to ignore the Choices that You can make [instead of defaulting].

I say this a lot “Life is too short”, because it is. So to live your best life possible requires you to make appropriate choices, continually.

It’s hard, I know. All this “Choice pressure” on You.

However, making Choices that will keep you happy, healthy & world wise is important and it’s also serious.

Make a game of it if that helps. Add some Fun element. I mean, it is Your life that I am talking about here.

Choices need to be made. Best Choices.

And when You make them, the rewards will be worth it.
