The year 2016 was an eventful year in so many ways. As a global family we experienced many changes. For example, Britain leaving the European market and Donald Trump being elected the new president of The United States. As well as these global changes, each of us have experienced things that we can learn from.

What 3 valuable lessons did you learn in 2016 that can prepare you for a productive 2017 emotionally, physically and spiritually? It maybe helpful for you  to just take some time and reflect on your experiences so you can answer this question for yourself.

Always remember that no matter what you have been through a new beginning is ALWAYS possible but you have to put in the work so that your desire becomes a reality. Yes it may be painful but it will be worth it!!!!

Let me share 3 tips with you that will help you move into a new year.

1. Keep a log of and deal with your positive and negative mental chatter.

  1. How many times do you beat yourself up during the day?
  2.  Are you constantly thinking critical thoughts about yourself and others?
  3. How many positive thoughts do you have during the day?

What have you learnt about your mental processes and how will you move on from it?

2. Feed your mind with the thoughts, words and images that are most consistent with who you want to be, what you want to have and what you want to achieve.

Vision boards and affirmations are a great starting point.

 

3.Be determined to create a new beginning for yourself  .

Creating a new beginning for yourself has nothing to do with your age. You can begin again at any age and at anytime. Cultivate a new beginning by  learning from any mistakes you made in 2016.

My prayer is that these 3 tips will assist you in building in a better 2017.

3 Things To Remember In Times Of Trouble

No one is exempt from difficult times. We all go through something but it is important to remember the way we go through situations can make or break us. Let me share with you 3 things to be mindful of during tough times.

1. There is no such thing as failure only learning opportunities.

To be honest it took me a while to understand and appreciate this. I use to think that nothing good could come from failure but boy was I  wrong. I learnt so much about life, relationships and myself. I believe my failures brought out the best in me and it smoothed out my rough edges. Failure become my teacher and opened my eyes to possibilities and best good things life has to offer.

If you are currently experiencing failure stop for a moment and ask yourself the question, ” what can I learn from this to make me a better person”.  Don’t resent your perceived failure because it will teach you things you will never learn from a text  book or university.

2. Appreciate the present moment

Each moment in life is precious so do not take it for granted or waste it. I have wasted many by wishing my life away with regret  and  “if onlys”. each moment will soon become a memory so embrace them, learn from them whether good or bad and move on.

 

3. Things can and do change

Never get stuck in the trap that things will always remain the same. A storm never lasts forever, believe me they do end. However we do have a responsibility to take steps to initiate the change we desire.

In my own life I have had to make changes in order to move forward. It was not an easy journey but I did it. You can do it also, so take a step in the middle of your storm and look forward to a bright, rewarding and exciting future.
