Review 2016

December has come upon us so fast. The year seems to have flown by. The Christmas lights are switched on, Christmas trees smell of pine, the post office is beginning to have longer and longer queues. People are sending greeting cards to relatives near and far away. You can get a sense of Christmas in the air. Santa is on his way.


It’s a great time of year to reflect on what you have already achieved this year. Perhaps you did something you have always wanted to do. Perhaps you have started that course or even changed your job. Perhaps you just got that little bit of work done in the house that you have been putting off.  Perhaps you have bought a house, got engaged, or got married. Perhaps you have started a business. Perhaps you have started to work on problem areas in your life, so you can get them sorted.


It is as important to celebrate what you have achieved, as it is to set goals. It’s important to remember your achievements, no matter how small or how big. You have achieved these! Often you think about what you would like to do, but spending time looking at what you have achieved this year is as important. In your hurry through life, TAKE THE TIME to reflect on the postive stuff you have achieved. It will inspire you. It will start a train of thought that puts you on the right track. One that carries you along, drives you. One that motivates you.


Richard Branson does this every year. He will sit and jot down all he has achieved. It’s a reminder of success. So maybe take a leaf from his book and be proud of the positive changes you have made in 2016.


We have more ability to do great things that we think.  As Napoleon Hill said “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve”.


It’s time to reflect, refocus and review. Really look at the positive changes you have made in 2016, and whether they are very small or very big, remember YOU have achieved them. Celebrate and be proud of your achievements.

New seeds of thinking

Letting go – Letting in

The season is changing in Ireland and the leaves have started to fall. You see them gathered almost everywhere. Yellowey green, some just turning crimson, they crunch under your feet as you walk. Nature has a way of letting go of things it no longer needs.

Maybe its time for you to let go of stuff that you have been holding onto that doesn’t serve you well. It might be anger or stress. Maybe you can stop fighting with yourself in your mind. Perhaps it’s time for you to turn over a new leaf.

You don’t see the leaves fighting with the trees. They just let go of what isn’t nourishing anymore. They wait in the full knowledge that spring-time is just a little while away.

As you are walking through the fallen leaves, think of this season as a time for letting go of old stuff and reflecting on new buds of opportunity that excite you and that you can work towards.

If you could turn over a new leaf what would be it be?

What would you see?

How would you feel?

New seeds of thinking

Autumn, a time of letting go

The roadways are paved with crunchy golden brown leaves. Nature knows when to let go of what it no longer needs. Perhaps it’s time to consider letting go of what is not working for you.

Some people carry the weight of the world on their shoulders. If you are one of those people, ask yourself is it really worth it?

Let go of the burdens, the worries, the guilt, the insecurities.

Begin to plant new seeds of potential within your own mind. Tend to building and cultivating your own self esteem and your potential. Follow through on what really matters most to you. Get rid of the weeds that invade your way of thinking. Tend to the ideas, the dreams, and self belief that are so important in your life.

You don’t have to wait until a new year comes around. You could start now. A new season of opportunity. Time to leave behind a way of thinking that is no longer serving you well. Plant the seed in your mind of looking after yourself. Nurture it well, feed it with hope, drive it with motivation and begin to let go of old ways of thinking and start anew.
