Happy Chinese New Year to all and welcome 2014 – may the year of the strong and graceful horse assist you in galloping towards your goals and desires.

“Create your future from your future, not from your past.” –Weiner Erhard

Many of us find ourselves juggling careers, relationships, family, children and money matters. With the roll-over in to the new year it can leaving us psychologically and physically overwhelmed with the continuation of the last year’s stresses, lacking the motivation and energy to cope with what is, and the uncertainty to know how to make the necessary changes to move forward or to live our full potential.

We all have a life script which is essentially the way in which we perceive our life to be. Concepts such as “who am I?”, “what matters in my life?” and “how do manage my life in order to live fully?” are questions we need to ponder on. We often get stuck in a story which keeps us locked in pain and then react to life with that mind-set.  Is your glass half full or half empty? How do you view your current challenges? Can you see yourself getting through it? How is your general mental and physical well-being? Are you sleep-deprived? Making poor food choices? Not moving sufficiently? Any diseases you struggling with? What is the status of your current relationships? Do you have a sense of meaning and purpose in your life? Do you have any desires and dreams, and have you managed to set specific goals to attain them? Is your lack of motivation getting in your way?

“Watch your thoughts they become words. Watch your words they become actions. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits.

Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.” Unknown

Strategise:

At the end of the day you are responsible for your attitudes and feelings. You can choose to be a victim or you can choose to direct your life in a more positive direction. The more positive you are the happier you will be and you will probably live longer. You choose.
