Make Changes To Inspire Your Life

By | Blog | No Comments
“Change Is Opportunity” "Try to do things everyday that you never thought possible”Karen Scottchange Time to get yourself fired up so you can bring about change to live an inspired life. If you don’t make changes your life will always stay the same. Working on yourself and making the changes you want for your life brings more happiness….it’s all about YOU – personal development is the secret to more confidence. Be comfortable in your own skin – be the real YOU and be rewarded with the life you want. Fuel your passion with making decisions and taking action. Make the necessary changes and believe in yourself. Great action plans are simple and straightforward. You can achieve more when you focus on less. Make sure you are flexible and your plan can be adjusted and changed when obstacles or opportunities come along. New challenges are part of real life and they bring about change whether we want it or not. Keep focused on your plan. Ask yourself – What it is that you want and does your goal match your values and the person you want to become? You don’t want to change only to find out that it wasn’t who you wanted to be. Focus your energy on achieving your goal. When you set your goal and put your plan in place – stuff happens. When you fully commit your whole being to your goal it just happens, pathways and step-by-stepopportunities turn up as if by magic. It is okay to be afraid and to have fears everyone does… but do something about it don’t let your fears rule your life. Take it as slow as you want, put baby steps in place and just start doing. When you start with what you are afraid of doing the fear disappears. Fear is only there because you haven’t got all the answers. Put steps in place to find the answers and be rid of the fear. Decide, commit and start taking action, just take the first step, then the next one and so on. Don’t let yourself get overwhelmed with what might happen in the next five months or five years – just concentrate on the day you are in and keep taking the next step. Stop talking about what you want and what you will do and could do and actually start doing it. When you DECIDE to make a stand for yourself and love yourself enough to go for what you want then you become UNSTOPPABLE…..that is such a great place to be! Have the courage to stand up for yourself and for your life. Too many people fall victim to the needs of others, pleasing their family, their partner and friends. Losing their identity and sense of self. Sacrificing their own values for the need and approval of others. It is all well and good to take care of others and we can do that as well as looking out for ourself but just check in and see how many things you are giving up that you really want in your life. You are here to life your own life and when you are fulfilled and happy you can then give more to others. You teach people how to treat you by the kind of behavior you allow from others and how you let them treat you. People pleasing is a total energy drainer, learn to please yourself first and your energy levels will rise. Step up today and change what you do and how you do it and why you do it. When you decide to change you become a magnetic powerhouse. It is okay to give yourself permission to want what you want and to go after it. Live an inspired life – don’t procrastinate – make the necessary changes quickly. Everything you want is just your dream, your vision and the action you take. Make the necessary changes to have the life you want. Until you change something, everything will stay the same. As Albert Einsten said…."Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.” Decide ‘YES’ to your life! The life you want is simple – it is just a matter of making a decision to change and to take the action steps that are needed!

Lessons to learn from Leonardo Dicaprio

By | Blog | No Comments
“Only you and you alone can change your situation. Don’t blame it on anything or anyone.” - Leonardo DiCaprio Leonardo DiCaprio

LEONARDO DICAPRIO IS A CLASS ACT SHOWING OTHERS THE POWER OF PERSISTENCE AND PERSEVERENCE, TO KEEP GOING WHEN LIFE KNOCKS YOU BACK AND HOW TO GET OUT THERE AND GRAB THE OPPORTUNITIES THAT ARE HANDED TO YOU!

The power of persistence and perseverance will change the way you experience life it also inspires others and will gain respect for you. Perseverance is the willingness to push onwards in spite of criticism, self-doubt, fear of failure and it takes persistence to work hard and never give up. Leonardo DiCaprio taught us many things with his win at the ‘Oscar’s‘ …ONE: being exactly that persistence and perseverance paid off when he won his first ‘Oscar’ for the best leading actor for his performance in ‘The Revenant.’ The ‘Oscars’ is a great celebration and spectacular event….millions of people sat glued to the screens to watch the complete coverage of the 88th Academy Awards. From checking out what everyone was wearing to seeing if their favorite stars had received an award but for others they would learn from the valuable life lessons Leonardo DiCaprio showed us. He is a real example of how stick ability will get you the rewards. The American actor has been nominated six times for an ‘Oscar.’ His first nomination came at the age of 19 and he has had to wait 22 years to be finally awarded and ‘Oscar.’ Leonardo has had a very diverse career going from relatively modest beginnings appearing in low budget films to now a very sought after actor appearing in Hollywood blockbuster movies and he is one of the most respected actors with much to offer the world. This highly sought after and prestigious award is the absolute pinnacle of achievement for any actor – it is the recognition of their work from the most prestigious body of judges in their industry. So for his continued efforts and great performances his perseverance and persistence finally paid off and won him the ultimate prize an ‘OSCAR.’ So what is the most valued prize that you seek, the prestigious award? What is the coveted position you want? What does success mean to you? You have to know with certainty that it’s not a matter of if you will be successful, but when! Also we can learn from Leonardo how to grab your opportunities when they come along. He is very passionate about ‘Climate Change’ and how urgent the need is to take action to save the planet. He took this opportunity and used the powerful platform he was on to deliver his message for the powerless that don’t have the opportunity to voice their concerns in such a huge public arena. In his acceptance speech he delivered a strong statement and used his voice for the good of others. This very special moment was about him and his ‘Oscar’ win but he didn’t make it just about him. So many people in his position would not have had the courage to venture into a political issue for fear of what it might do to them and their career. What better opportunity was there than this when he had such a huge captive audience. He realized the powerful opportunity he had and he took this moment to get his message out to the world. He is very passionate about environmental and humanitarian causes, donating millions of dollars to these and he founded the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation to support sustainability efforts. On the night of the ‘Oscars’ win he had the courage to stand up for what he believes in and he took this opportunity to spread his message. Always keep alert to what opportunities are around you and grab them with both hands and go for gold. Leonardo has shown us that after 22 years of giving his best he now has the ultimate reward. To achieve anything of value and importance it is a must to keep persevering – don’t ever give up. If there is no willingness to make the necessary sacrifices and to put in the effort then the reward is not deserved. It is possible to have, do or be anything but it requires the belief that it is possible. To have the right attitude and it also takes commitment, that determination and discipline, having courage, keeping focused on your goal, being persistent and persevering until reaching your identified goal. Leonardo started off as just an ordinary youth at 19 and this is a real glimpse into how normal everyday people can change their life’s and became extraordinary - anybody can do the same in their own live. In an interview, Leonardo said – “I think I survive because I don’t limit myself. If there’s some experience I want to have or a place I want to go, I go do it.” This is a very powerful statement and one that is true for anyone wishing to be successful. ..it’s all about YOU – personal development is the secret to more confidence and success…..don’t limit yourself. Be comfortable in your own skin – be the real YOU and be rewarded with the life you want. It’s about keeping focused and staying true to your message, going after what you want and letting go of the trivia…the small stuff. Leonardo puts it this way with his tips on how to survive an interview with a journalist – “ Only talk about what you want to talk about, no matter what the question. How true is this and how many people get caught up with mindless chatter, gossip, that takes them no where, just wasting their time. Successful people know this well. Keep focused on the goal and the action steps that need to be taken rather than just talking about a bunch of thoughts and what you might do and could do and hope that something works. Leonardo’s achievements and incredible life story are an inspiration to empower people and to show that you must take control of your own life. You don’t have to wait before breaking free of what is holding you back and living a life that you are really proud of. Don’t settle for anything less than the ultimate prize and always be prepared to quickly capitalize on the opportunities that are being presented to you. No one is YOU and that is your POWER. Stay committed to WHO you really WANT to BE.! “If you can do what you do best and be happy, you’re further along in life than most people."

Love Thyself

By | Blog | No Comments
“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined.” - Henry David Thoreau A vital key to HAPPINESS is to LOVE YOU. Yes YOU…that person you get to live with every day of your life… If there is something that displeases you then do something about it. Start by asking yourself some questions about YOU and write down your answers so you can identify where these thoughts have come from: SOME QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF: * What don’t you like? * Why don’t you like that about yourself? * What are you going to do about it? * Where did you get this belief about yourself? * If you changed the way you thought about yourself how would your life be different? You come up with a lot of how you feel about yourself from that inner critic that lives within you and it can be very nasty. If you spoke to your friends the way you speak to yourself you would have no friends. We all have this voice that sometimes tells us that we’re an idiot, we are too dumb to do that, not pretty enough, are too old, that inner voice knows how to be mean when you let it have the control. That voice stops you from putting yourself out there and taking risks…it stops you from saying things to others that you would so love to say. That inner critic can be so powerful. Love Yourself The thing is you have the control over your inner critic and can stop it tearing you down. You need to learn how to make friends with your inner self and start using her for good. Learn what triggers her and when it is that she shows up. Is it when you make a mistake, is it when you want to try something new, is it when you want to raise your hand and ask a question at a seminar? When is it that your inner voice shows up? Once you identify and learn about your inner voice you can recognize all that mind chatter and see that it is keeping you as a victim. Ask yourself why you are so worried about that issue and keep going until you get down to the real reason of what is holding you back. When you love yourself it lifts your self-esteem and your confidence grows. “Talk To Yourself Like You Would To Someone You Love!” - Brene Brown Having more confidence builds up your self-esteem or self-image. This is your opinion of yourself and how you think others see you. All the beliefs you have about yourself and the beliefs you have accepted from other people. SELF-ESTEEM is the degree to which you value yourself. Your self- image can make or break you. Your life is all about YOU and YOU are the most important person in it. You must realize that you have the power to change anything to the way you want it to be. Your level of confidence and self-esteem is one of the most important aspects in obtaining the life you want. Make the voice that tells you that you CAN do it much stronger and louder and listen to that voice and set yourself FREE to do whatever you want. It does take practice but it is so worth it and it starts by learning to love yourself and all that is unique and wonderful about you. Say this mantra daily:

This Is Who I Am And I CAN Do Anything!

I would love to be able to help you see all that is so loveable about YOU. Contact me for a FREE Chat at www.karenjscott.co.nz

Stuck In A Rut?

By | Blog | No Comments

"Rock Bottom became the foundation on which I rebuilt my life." - J K Rowling

Being stuck in a rut can drag you down, make you feel depressed, or as if life is something Stuck rutyou just go through day after day but no longer enjoy. This can slowly happen without you realizing it; then one day you wonder what happened to your life, and when did this happen to you? Dig Out HoleFor many daily life is designed by some form of routine which can’t be avoided, like going to work eight plus hours a day, taking the kids to and from school each day, cooking and cleaning which can be all so mundane and predictable. Sometimes the reasoning behind routine is because it provides a safety barrier…where you get comfortable with your life and feel secure in the way it is, so why change? However, sometimes routine can start to get you down, can leave you with a feeling of disassociation and can start causing problems in relationships, work and daily life in general….and gradually you become unhappy, bored and bogged down in a rut. This is the time for CHANGE and FAST!!! Dig yourself out of the hole and start enjoying life again. It’s when we hold things back, start worrying about everything and habouring grudges that many problems occur in life…mental, emotional and physical problems. When things are allowed to ‘build up’ we get overwhelmed. Most of us don’t even enjoy ‘our own’ company when we feel like this.

"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old but on building the new." - Socrates

TIPS TO GET OUT OF THE RUT… - Do at least one thing everyday that is different to your normal routine, this could be something as simple as taking a short break and going for a walk, sitting down to read a chapter of a book or any other hobby you once enjoyed. - Take up a new hobby, make sure that you give yourself some times throughout the day to just enjoy something you like doing. - Shake up meal times by having something different, you can either try a different recipe or order different take out, try foods from different cultures. - Get out and meet new people, there are many ways you can achieve this, join a gym, club or attend a self-improvement class or hobby class. Attend networking groups like BNI, join organisations like Zonta, Rotary, The Lions Club, Toastmasters. - Drive a different way to work or if possible walk or start cycling, not only will this break the rut you are in but also get you fitter...if you can take a scenic route where you are by the sea or can see the mountains or the trees do so...being in nature is so good for the soul. - Take up a new sport; there are many types of sport with something for the fitter to the more moderate forms of exercise. - Do something special for someone else without expecting something in return...make someone's day. - Do something each day that is totally out of character for you, start off with small changes and work your way up to bigger ones. - If you are at home with children then change your routine throughout the day, don’t always do the same chore at the same time, shake up the way you do your housework and how you interact with the children. - Make small changes around the home or work area…it breaks up the mundane daily routine that you once had and adds spice to your life….bring excitement and joy into your day. - De-clutter your home or work area; it is surprising how being surrounded by clutter can get you down. - Be very grateful and appreciate what you already have. Go ahead! Select AT LEAST one thing from the list above and just do it! When you step back and give your self some ME time and allow yourself to stop and just BE… you create some space in your head and get clarity around how you can HAVE what you want. You will be amazed at the thoughts you have and all the ideas that just pop into your head and the magic starts to happen in your life. Go ahead….get out of the RUT and go for what you want ….be the ‘UNSTOPPABLE WOMAN’ that you so can BE! I would love to help you get out of the rut…contact me for a FREE chat!

Have An Awesome Life

By | Blog | No Comments
Why have any other life than an awesome one. I always question what is the point of anything if it does not make you happy and it is not what you want tBuso do….seriously - WHY would you bother? The person who can give you what you want is yourself that’s why it is important to take the time to understand YOU and what it is that YOU really want. Time-for-questionsInvest in yourself as this person (YOU) is along for the ride for the whole journey of your life. You don’t get off the bus until the final destination….the last resting place. There are some simple steps you can take as you attract what you think you deserve…so it makes sense that you think you are worthwhile in order to attract the best things in life and to feel good about yourself.
  1. Know what you want. …What is your big ‘WHY’ in life….what are you passionate about? When you know your ‘WHY’ and ‘WHY’ you want it you can then figure out ‘HOW’ you can get it. What do you really want? A No1. Question that you need to get the answer for.
  2. Know what your own values and beliefs are… What is important to you and what will you compromise and won’t compromise on…what are the deal breakers for you? What do you believe about yourself and life? Ask yourself questions…do you really believe these things to be true or are they someone else’s beliefs that you have been told and accepted.
  3. Set your goals…. Write a huge list of everything you want to do – your bucket list and start making plans to do the things that are important to you. Every day achieve a small goal and work towards your big goals. Start now TODAY!
  4. Look after your well-being…Having a great nights sleep is important. Sleep in a room free from technology. Meditate. Exercise. Eat healthy unprocessed foods. Do things to keep you mentally, physically and spiritually strong. Valuing your health and fitness level is crucial to feeling good and getting more things done.
  5. Get rid of the negativity…. Cut people, situations and influences out of your life that make you feel anxious and stressed. There are no place for gossips in your life you don’t need their drama, it is soul destroying and depressing being around these people. Moving away from negativity lifts your energy.
  6. Your time is valuable…. Have boundaries in life and business that honour your time. When you give away your time to things you want to say ‘no’ to….you are allowing others to use up chunks of your life. Time is your most valuable asset don’t give it away to things and people that make you unhappy.
  7. Be happy. Do things each day that make you laugh. Go on a date with someone that makes you happy…or date yourself and do the things you love. Give yourself flowers or that bottle of wine you enjoy, take yourself to your favourite spot. Relax and watch the sunset. Say lovely things to yourself. Watch your thoughts and words….what you think and say is what you get in life!

Smell The Possibilities

By | Blog | No Comments
Hi ….Karen back again - todays chat is about smelling the possibilities getting yourself tunedSmelling Flowers in to see, feel and smell the magic that is around you. I love the earlier mornings where you jump out of bed with enthusiasm for what lies ahead in the day. That smell of possibilities that linger in the air filling your heart with joy. Thinking of what opportunities will drop into your path….the experiences you will have and the difference you can make in a day….because you can make a difference in a day!! Have gratitude for this fresh new start. Everyday is like a new beginning to tackle things in a different way. To live in the moment of the possibilities of what this day brings…let go of the stresses of yesterday and don’t worry about tomorrow be in the NOW. Enjoy the present moment. Get in the habit of before you go to sleep at night asking for an answer to any problem or challenge you have had in the day and then let it go. So often you wake in the morning with it solved. This new idea or solution miraculously pops into your head and whoopee you are off…. Set yourself up for success every day. Don’t wish to be successful. Expect To Be. Do what is necessary. Success doesn’t just decide to knock on your door. Make decisions to change the direction you are heading in life, you have to make the tough decisions. Do whatever it takes. Smell those possibilities and grab them with both hands and hit the ground running. FocusKeep the focus on what you want. Time spent on doubt, fear or low-priority things slows down what you accomplish. When you take your mind off focusing on what it is you want to achieve, all you see is obstacles. When your mind is focused on your dreams and all the possibilities you don’t have time for the many self-doubts that block the way. If you want more success and happiness then you first have to change some things get rid of stuff that is holding you back. The following are some things to give up and to no longer tolerate. They are all unproductive things that add no value to your life and take you further away from what it is you want: 7 Things To Give Up

  2. Doubting Yourself
  3. Negative Thinking
  4. Fear Of Failure
  5. Criticising Yourself
  6. Saying YES When You Want To Say NO
  7. Procrastination
Now on to the doing….get your ‘ to do ‘ list cranked up and take action. Focus on what you want and be damn determined you will get it. Turn your impossible into possible. Don’t waste time worrying what anyone else is thinking about you because it only matters what you think. 7 Things To DoAnything_Is_Possible
  1. Smell The Possibilities
  2. Set Your Goals
  3. Make An Action Plan
  4. Believe You Can Have It
  5. Focus On What You Want

Remember TIMEyou become like the people you spend the most time with so hang out with people you want to be like. Life can seem to move fast that there is too much to do and never quite enough time to get it all done. While there is no magical way to stop time, or even slow it down, there are ways to work smarter, faster and more efficiently. Look to all the extremely successful people, the high achievers, they have exactly the same amount of time as you. No one person has the luxury of ever getting more time yet what some people can achieve in a day is extraordinary, proving that anything can be done. Study the people who are doing what you want to do, learn from them, their mistakes, their successes and the best way to do it. Why waste your time trying to learn it yourself when they have already worked out a successful way. Successful people know how to sniff out all the possibilities; their highly trained nostrils are super sensitive. Follow their trail this is working smarter, faster and more efficient.

Life Is Like A Ball Game

How To Win The Biggest Game Of Your Life - Do you want to know how to get all the success you want? Have you had enough of watching others succeed while you feel like giving up? That everyday is one big disappointment after another; you are frustrated, stressed, overwhelmed and just plain sick of life. That it all feels too hard, depressing, and you are worn out – you get up each morning with a heavy heart – dreading the day a

head of you. Lets look at life in another way …it can ‘Be Likened To A Ball Game’ - Like a sports game life can have many twists & turns, so many different outcomes, so many if only’s; the way the ball bounced in that very crucial moment. All sorts of balls can be used– different sized ones, many shapes and colours…no matter what you do with them they might still encounter obstacles and things just don’t go as planned. They might go where they are not supposed to – they can even get lost along the way but the purpose of the ball is to score and WIN the game. As long as you keep the ball in play, stick to the rules of the game, keep the energy high and take action then results happen. There can be many up’s and down’s in the game but with determination, that sheer grit and commitment they can succeed. Sports balls can be used in many ways tossed in the air, kicked, hit, thrown, caught & returned, lost, squashed, stolen, worn-out, and end up out-of-shape just like what can happen with your life. To keep the game alive you have to keep bouncing it to and fro following it’s purpose and passion. Like in the game of life do what is necessary hang on to that ball with grim Solid Foundationdetermination, get out there with guts, the grit to conquer it all. Whether it is in life, business or a ball game, you get what you put in and it comes down to starting out with a great plan and having the basic skills in place. Starting with great foundations. As Michael Jordon, famous basket baller, said “ You can practice shooting balls eight hours a day, but if your technique is wrong, then all you become is very good at shooting the wrong way. Get the fundamentals down and the level of everything you do will rise.” It mostly comes down to doing the basic stuff right. Jordon warns that when you ‘get away from the fundamentals’….the bottom can fall out of whatever you do.Image basketball In any situation the basics must be exceptional for greater results later in the game. The Golfer before he hits the ball needs the basics correct - his stance. Rubgy – correctly lining up the ball before you kick it and getting the right mindset. Basket ball – correct technique before shooting balls and it is the same with any sport the basics must be perfect for a better outcome. Life is a juggling act with many different balls being tossed in the air or thrown at you from all directions. In almost all problem areas of your life, you are the problem and you are the solution….your resistance comes from inside yourself – from your beliefs and the story you tell yourself. I have developed a program called ‘Unstoppable’ where you can get all the balls lined up for SUCCESS. You are not the only one that has these feelings. I coach people just like this everyday and in fact have felt like that myself. After surviving being buried beneath a building in an EQ I initially was very grateful to be alive, but slowly as the months & years went by, and I was repeatedly thrown a curved ball and knocked down time after time I felt like I would have been better off to have been left under that building. Everyday fighting insurance companies, battling with injuries, trying to recover from the losses of losing my business, home and personal belongings.Image kapow It didn’t seem to matter how much I tried it was KaPow – slam dunk another ball struck me down, I would get up try again & KaPow - slam dunk again – it was very depressing so I do understand how hard it is to get on top of things sometimes. BUT YOU CAN… It’s time to ditch phrases like ‘I’d love to, but I can’t…in your life and business for good. Just start & do what you have to do until you can do what you want to do. Taking the curved balls that are thrown at you, grabbing them with both hands and slamming them down for victory – take the learnings from it and pick yourself up for greater success. Life is a juggling act with many different balls being tossed in the air or thrown at you from all directions. Don’t have regrets about all the things you would have loved to have done but didn’t. All those balls you wished you had grabbed and just gone for it. The missed opportunities, the pain & suffering, the unfulfilled dreams. That you looked at those balls and hesitated too long and they dropped into someone else’s hands. Take the curved balls that have been thrown at you, grab them with both hands and slam them down for victory – take the learning’s from it and pick yourself up for greater success. “ Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuild my life.” - J.K Rowling Go and download my book for FREE where I share stories on overcoming adversities and how you can too!

The Power Of Early Morning Rituals

By | Blog | No Comments

“First get what you want accomplished before you’re too busy to remember what it is you wanted to do.”

How do you start making more of yourself – how do you start winning, succeeding? STUDY SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE A great place to find the answers is to study successful people and learn what it is they do. Why try and reinvent the wheel and do it the hard way learning it all yourself – which can take years, cause you lots of stress and cost a lot of money! It is important to get clarity around what it is you really want. Set an action plan in place and get the basics right. Put firm foundations in place and then you have something great to build on. Get to really know yourself and what is important to you. Get clear on who you want to be, and what you stand for…What is the legacy you want to leave? Think BIG, and then much bigger. Then get going, show up even if you don’t know what to do. Start and then things happen. Just do something – do anything it is better than standing still.

Study successful people and get a jumpstart on the game. morning+ritual ONE THING STOOD OUT From the many successful people I have interviewed one thing that they do has stood out consistently. That is they all get up early and have a set morning routine….rituals that they do every morning without fail. They are non-negotiable and they believe this is what sets them up for the day. Giving to yourself first thing in the morning nurtures your soul and boosts your energy. It might be they start with exercise or meditation. Go for a power walk and listen to audios, do some reading, have a sauna whatever the ritual is for them. It might be a special breakfast or that first cup of coffee while contemplating their day. These rituals are their habits and are as important as the big decisions they might have to make later in the day. Getting up early they have a head start on the rest of the world and their productivity soars. One small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day! Successful people are able to tell you with absolute clarity what it is they want in life. They have the certainty and the confidence that they will get it. Successful people get on with their day and do all the things that unsuccessful people don’t do. Starting with their early morning rituals.

Join the club of highly successful people and live a happy, healthy and vibrant life. When you fall in love with life the limitations disappear and your resistance falls away allowing more of what you love to come into your life. “You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.

started TODAY and not waste anymore of this year. I love the promise that a new year brings, that new beginnings feeling, all the possibilities ahead…it is so exciting. So what would happen for you - if this year you took away all your excuses and decided you were going to start thinking BIG and set up a goals and action plan that will make your year super awesome. TIPS TO GET YOU GOING
  1. First set up a plan that deals with the every day stresses first, get your house in order so you are not facing the same old dramas day after day….wasting countless hours of your life:Set goals for your budget that will take away that financial stress of never having enough money. Arguments about money are by far one of the biggest causes of problems in relationships.There are simple things you can do to stop your money slipping away. First write down all your monthly income and expenses. You could for instance set up a system with jars at home and label each one with the different things you need to save your money toward.Divide your money into the jars each time you receive income. Doing it this way requires discipline so that you don’t dip into the money every time you want some new shiny object.A better way might be to talk to your bank and organize different accounts where your money automatically gets paid into them each week for expenses and savings. Have these accounts set so you can’t access them easily.TIP: You will never get out of financial difficulty if your spending exceeds your income. Be strict and disciplined with your income. Getting your finances under control greatly helps with achieving your goals.
  2. Set goals that takes care of planning your meals. Figure out the recipes you will use each week and the ingredients required. Then you can organize the grocery list so that you get all that is required for the week in one visit to the supermarket. In that way you are not racing frantically backwards and forwards everyday wasting time and money.With this forward planning for the week you can organize the preparation in advance for the meals and it is all sorted in your head with what you have to do…. making it less of a stress when you race in the door after work.
  3. Control That Hectic Morning Stress Of Always Running Late – set your goals for the next day before you go to bed at night. When you know your to do list and what is a priority you get up in the morning all ready to go and know what the first most important thing is you have to tackle.A lot of time is wasted in the morning by procrastinating and trying to decide what you will do first and before you know it you have run out of time and have to race out the door and nothing has been done. It is not a productive way to start your day and it sets up what kind of mood you will be in and your attitude for the day.
  4. Set goals for your health and well-being….you are the NO.1 priority in your day and feeling fit and healthy helps you produce better results and that you are also able to give more to others.It is important to take care of these everyday reoccurring problems so that you have more time to dream-bigmake a difference with your big dreams and goals. It will motivate you and get you all fired up to take on the world.Ultimately if you are going to be successful you will have to figure out the best way of balancing all your activities and still meet your families needs.
Set yourself up for a successful year one step at a time. List your monthly priorities…determine what matters most right now. Focus on these things and have a great structured plan that can help to overcome the obstacles and stumbling blocks that can hold you back from reaching your dreams and goals. Make a decision that this will be your best year yet and stay committed to achieving that. Do what you have to do until you can do what you want to do…never ever give up.
