Hi Everyone

Do you ever look at your life and realise that you haven’t achieved much in the past month? If so, did you have goals for that time, or did you just drift along with things to do, but avoiding them? You can achieve a whole lot more with your time when you set goals.

There is a lot more to achieving any goal than just having the goal. But it is a first step. You may wonder how some people seem so great at achieving their goals while other people aren’t so good at it. Part of the reason why some people fail is that they do not have a specific goal, one that is clear and focused. In addition, they do not have a schedule of action to actually work toward achieving the goal. In order to meet any goal, start doing these five things today.

1. Craft Clear, Specific and Doable Goals

For any goal to be achievable it must first be clear and very specific. But, it also must be possible. You do want to challenge yourself a bit, and set the goal high, but you want to ensure that any goal you set is possible. Therefore, you will need to do a little research in order to set a goal. For instance, let’s say your ultimate goal is to lose 50 pounds.Continue reading

If you’ve created a time management plan and still failed to reach your goals, it’s likely because you’re too flexible and easy on yourself and others when it comes to the schedule. The sorry fact is that time is not limitless. You can’t get more time. You can’t work harder to get more of it; it’s a finite resource that cannot be increased or replaced. There are only 24 hours in each and every day.

When you realise that time is finite and that there really might not be some future distant tomorrow, you might start being more ruthless with the time you’ve got. Follow these tips to make time management so much easier.Continue reading

If you are a person who wants to achieve, you will be someone who sets goals. Within the self help arena people always talk about setting SMART goals, but if you haven’t come across this term before then you may not realise that it is an acronym.

When making goals, it’s important to learn about the acronym S.M.A.R.T. It can help you make better goals. Each letter stands for a different area of the goal. If you create a smart goal, you have created a goal that is Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Reasonable, and Timely. Using SMART goals can set you up for success in your goal setting.Continue reading

Hello everyone, how are you today? Happy I hope.

I always try and stay positive and happy, but like everyone else, it is not possible 100% of the time. But I do try and keep my happiness levels as close to that level as possible. Of course, life throws things at you that affect your mood – the secret is to accept that it will happen and keep things in perspective. But what happens if you are not like this, that you are naturally low, but would like to become a happier person?

Many people suffer from depression and low moods. It’s often hard to overcome, but remember that change takes time. When trying to take control of your feelings, remember to be patient. Listed below are some tips for dealing with a low mood.Continue reading

permission to sabotage

Thank you for being here. If you are reading this article, then you are almost certainly interested in improving yourself, of having a better life. It is great to want to improve yourself in order to improve your relationships, but you might discover that you meet with resistance at every turn from certain people in your life. What should you do if you discover someone you care about is sabotaging you, and putting obstacles in the way of you working towards a better self?

Firstly, you need to determine if the sabotage is deliberate or unconscious on their part. They might just be a control freak, but also they might not even realise what they are doing. For example, women often think that their other halves would love it if they slimmed down, or that their mother would be proud that they were getting healthier.

Instead, they are told, “You look fine just the way you are,” or “Go on, have a little. It’s your favourite.” This can be through habit, or it could be because the person sabotaging you is afraid of change. If you change for the better, what will happen to the relationship? They may feel insecure, for no valid reason.Continue reading
