My advice would be no… January can be the hardest month.   Grey days, overdrafts, low energy, more stuff and clutter to fit in at home.  January is the highest month for disatisfaction and the peak of divorce applications.     However many of us start the month with firm resolutions to change our lives.    I have heard recently “I am… detoxing/ joining a gym/ whitening my teeth”  the majority of people tend to focus on the external self to feel good.  To get lasting and continuious change I like to focus on the inner self.   Thoughts and beliefs to boost confidence and self esteem.    Without address your inner self all the best intentions and resolutions will result in the same behaviour patterns and then same results.    My 3 top tips for January….

1. Focus on what is good in your life – what are you thankful for and why…(friends, family, home, health etc)

2. What did you achieve in 2010?   For 2011 keep a note either weekly or monthly of your achievements it is a great motivator.

3. Going forward keep a file of thank you notes or emails of appreciation.   If you need a boost choose a mixture of 10 friends/family/colleagues send an email asking them what they perceive your 3 strengths or unique gifts to be.  It’s a wonderful eye opener.

Although January is a tough month it can be a refreshing time with hope for the year ahead.   For careers it is a time when the job market picks up and industry comes alive after the Christmas break.   Many new jobs are advertised and budgets change opening up opportunities for promotion. 

And finally if you really want to know how to change a behaviour or career direction get in contact.   I would be delighted to help you on the fast track to lasting success not just for January…. lynda@in-a.co.uk

Have a fabulous healthy and happy 2011.

Whatever stage you are at in your life, it is vitally important that you have the knowledge and practical skills to take control of your money and your life!

So many women find talking about money uncomfortable and therefore avoid the subject – only to find later in life that they are left in a poor financial state either through relationship break-up, partner dying or not being adequately rewarded for the work that they do.  The statistics prove that too many women have to rely on hand-outs, low wages or meagre pensions.

I am host and speaker at a two hour taster seminar which will explain how to: 

  • Break through myths and attitudes around money
  • Find out the difference between women who build a strong financial foundation and those who don’t
  • Know the secrets of women who have it all (financial security and living the life of their dreams)
  • How emotions, fears and attitudes can help or hinder getting what you are worth

 You will gain tips on: 

  • How to organise your finances and build your future security
  • How to be financially savvy

I will be joined by guest speaker, Louise Houghton, who has 20 years’ experience in the Investment and Insurance Industry offering highly personalised service.  She is genuinely interested in helping women achieve financial freedom with clarity and assurance throughout the process.

The first session is on Tuesday 16th November 2010 – 9.30am to 12 noon or alternatively we are holding a second session on Wednesday 17th November 2010 – 7.00pm to 9.30pm.

Although I believe we can get enormous help by visualising what we want, getting others and the universe to help us, we still need a strong will to make our vision/dream happen.   How many people start the new year with New Year resolutions, only to find after a few weeks, they have yet again failed?

Discipline is a word with negative connotations but I believe this is the key to keeping to a plan.  If we first of all know what we want to achieve and the benefits we will gain, have a passion, plus have a metaphor which we can easily focus in our mind, will and discipline become easier.

Do you know of anyone who has been trying to give up smoking for years and failed?   They then get ill and go to the doctor who says, “If you don’t give up smoking you will be dead in 6 months”.  Suddenly they get a strong will and give up with relative ease.   So, why is this?  I believe it is because they now have a higher goal – to survive.

So, it depends on how important it is for us to achieve our goal.  The stronger the commitment, the easier it will be.  We need to really understand what the benefits are in order to give up our present habits.   After all, we may be operating in our comfort zone and there needs to be something more important to achieve.

“This Guide has been really clear and refreshing. It will give anyone the tools to be able to step back from a problem and give them ideas of what to do.  A key challenge for women is having enough time. This workbook is broken down into small steps, and keeps you on track. I found the exercises clear, simple and they work with many “wow!” moments. I loved the simple statement “Remember that you can choose your reaction” and then showed me how to do this. In one section, I found myself laughing out loud. It got me into a creative mood and ideas started to flow in abundance.” Wendy Hart-Wilson, HR Manager BMW

During the busy Christmas season make sure that you enjoy yourself and keep your sanity!
