Mindset Shifts You Need to Make to Achieve Your Goals

If you keep starting off the year working towards your goals to only give up or get off track a few weeks down the line then there may be something wrong with the mindset you are taking with you into the journey.

How To Cure Fear (Without Giving Up)

After reading Melissa Ambrosini’s book Mastering Your Mean Girl (buy it here.) I very much believe that everything we do in life is through love or fear. Now I don’t want to get too deep into this so definitely read her book if you want to learn more on this concept. But it opened my eyes about how many things I do, or don’t do because of fear. My word of the year for 2019 is Brave and because of this I wanted to get deeper into how I am now looking at fear and the cure I have found for it. So keep reading to find out how to cure fear.

I work in an office and every morning I ensure that I get into the office before my start time. Partly because I like to take some time to chill and get updated on the news before I start working but also because I want to make a good impression. I find it so irritating when I see people rocking up five minutes past, even twenty minutes pas their start time every single day. Some of these people will often stay late however I don’t think it is fair to pick and choose your working hours just because your start time wasn’t a priority for you.

Why You Need to Reward Yourself (Even For The Little Things)

We are the first ones to beat ourselves up if we make a mistake. Even a tiny mistake. But what do we do when we hit our little wins? Well sometimes, we beat ourselves up still because maybe we didn’t think the win was good enough and we should have achieved more, but at the very most, we just move forward onto the next stepping stone towards our goal. We don’t allow ourselves to feel good about this little victory before heading onto the next. I think it is about time that we reward ourselves for even the smallest things, here is why.

How Depression Impacts Our Decision Making Process

In the height of my depression in 2014/2015 I didn’t just feel like I was stuck in this feeling but I was actually spiraling.
