Well, Christmas is over and the New Year is fast approaching. That means that – just like every year – you’ll know plenty of people making New Year’s resolutions – such as giving up alcohol or stopping eating sugar. In fact, you might be contemplating something like this yourself.
But why deprive yourself? Why not make your resolution more positive. A resolution that actually gives you something? The time and space to reflect on what you really want to achieve in your life or career. The opportunity to overcome whatever is preventing you from achieving your full potential.
Take a moment to ponder on the statements below whilst you slurp your festive eggnog. Rate your answers from 1-10 (10 being very high):
- I wake up on a Monday morning and want to go to work
- I am in a job that enables me to utilise my skills and experience
- I am confident, happy and fulfilled in my job
- I know what I want to achieve in my career and how to go about doing so
- I am aware of the thought processes that go through my mind and I consciously choose those that I pay attention to
- I believe in myself and I believe that I am capable
- I can clearly articulate why a company should hire me
The chances are that if you have scored less than five on one of these statements, you’ve scored less than five on a number of them. If that is the case, and if you want to change this, coaching can give you the time and the tools to do so.
We all spend an enormous proportion of our waking hours at work. So to be fulfilled in your job can have a life-changing impact on your happiness and wellbeing.

In the meantime, have a happy New Year.
