    Mid Year Personal Goal Review And Reset

    Mid Year Personal Goal Review And Reset

    How To Reflect Review And Refocus Mid Year
    I don't know about you, but I think it's astonishing that we're halfway through 20 21 already!
    But as it’s half time in 2021, it’s a great time to pause, to reflect, to take a couple of moments, to look back on the six months that have just passed.
    Regardless of when you're reading this, it's a good thing to do from time to time, to stop, to pause, to check in on where you're heading, where you've come from and just do a bit of a review and a debrief, to discover what you've learned.
    Look at what you've gained and celebrate some of your wins, before you refocus and ensure that you are aligned and working towards achieving the goals and the life that you want to achieve.
    So, take a couple of moments to pause, to think, to stop and look back over the six months that have just passed and ask yourself…
    What have you been grateful for?
    What have you enjoyed?
    What have You learned?
    What have you gained?
    What has gone well?
    What do you wish you had done differently?
    What have been some of your highlights, your highs, your wins?
    And what can you learn from all of this?
    What can you take forward into the next six months, into the second half of this year, to ensure that you finish strong and heading towards achieving what's important to you?
    In Summary…


    First have the review and debrief to see what you can learn and take forward to help gain traction and momentum towards the life and the goals that you want.
    Then ask yourself is there anything you need to stop doing?
    Is there anything that you need to keep doing?
    Is there anything you need to start doing?
    That's going to help you work, move towards the things that you want.
    It’s time to have an honest conversation with yourself, to look at what you're doing, to look at what actions you're taking, what habits you currently have and where your mindset is currently guiding you.
    Imagine if you had a TV crew follow you around for the next six months, what are some of the things that we would find you doing, will your habits and actions be taking you towards, or away from the goals that you say you want to achieve?
    Now take a moment to think about your current mindset and what changes and enhancements you would like to make, that will help you finish the 2nd half of 2021 strong.
    If you were to be looking back on New Year’s Eve at the end of this year,
    What do you want to achieve?
    What do you want to accomplish?
    What do you want to ensure that you did to help yourself get to where you want to be?
    Now choose and commit to what you can do today, in the next few weeks, that your future self will thank you for.
    Please get in touch, leave me a comment and let me know what, not only what you've learned from this half of the year, and what you're planning to do now, to help you to finish strong.
    Remember what your mind believes you will achieve, so allow yourself to think differently, to believe in yourself, to take actions that will help you achieve the life and the goals that you want.
    Go on, take time to make it happen for yourself now!
    All the best

    How Do You Motivate Yourself And Others

    How Do You Motivate Yourself And Others

    How Do You Motivate Yourself And Others - Are You An Encourager Or Discourager?
    Hi, I’m Christian Baker from www.ChristianBaker.net and The Achieve Podcast, sharing inspiration, motivation, and encouragement to help you to think differently, to believe in yourself, to take action so you can achieve the life and the goals that you want.
    I came across a quote recently that goes along the lines of,


    "There are two ways of exerting strength, one is to push down, and one is to pull up”


    This got me thinking, this is something that can impact us both internally and externally.


    Firstly, look at the internal, do you focus more on the things that you can't do?


    Do you criticize yourself, is your inner self-talk one that's encouraging you, or belittling you?


    Took a moment to have a think, become aware of what you’re doing and then look at how you can change it for the better.


    Are you suppressing your potential? Are you focusing too much on the negatives, rather than giving yourself the encouragement and taking the time to focus on your strengths, your qualities, and the things that you can do, the things that you can change?


    We can't always change everything, but we can change how we react and respond to it.


    By focusing on the things that we can do, this helps us to move forward in the right direction.


    Now let’s look at this from the External perspective.


    Are you somebody who likes to offer a hand to people?


    Do you like to encourage or discourage people?


    Do you like to bring the best out in people, or are you somebody who criticizes?


    Are you somebody who looks at the negatives and all the reasons why you can't do something?


    Also think about the people you spend time with, do the people around you exert their strength on you in a way that belittles you, that pushes you down. Or do you surround yourself with people who are encouraging and inspiring you, the kind of people that bring out the best in you?


    Have a look at your life, have a look at the way you think, the way you speak and communicate with yourself and others, have a look at the people you spend the time with and ask yourself;


    “Are you pushing down on your personal best, on your success, on your achievement, on the life that you want, or are you pulling up and encouraging yourself from the inside out?”


    Simply become aware of whichever it currently is, once you’ve done that, now look at how you can make some changes to bring the best out of you and the people around you.


    It takes just as much time and energy, so decide which you would rather do and choose to do what will have the most positive impact for you and the people around you.


    Remember what your mind believes you will achieve, so allow yourself to think differently, to believe yourself more, be kind and encouraging to yourself. Then take action so that you can achieve the life and the goals that you want.


    Go on, make it happen!


    Leave a comment or get in touch and let me know how you're going to utilize this in your life moving forward and what a positive difference it makes for you!




    All the best

    Connect With Nature and Come To Your Senses

    Connect With Nature and Come To Your Senses

    Connect With Nature and Come To Your Senses
    𝗪𝗵𝘆 𝗶𝘀 𝗶𝘁 𝘀𝗼 𝗴𝗼𝗼𝗱 𝘁𝗼 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝗻𝗲𝗰𝘁 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗻𝗮𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲?


    Connecting with nature allows you to come to your senses.


    Anything that allows you to connect with one or more of your senses, is allowing you to naturally disconnect from the noise and busyness of your mind and day to day life and simply be more present in the moment.


    While you are focused on the nature around, the things you can see, the sounds of the birds, the feeling of the ground beneath your feet, the air temperature against your skin, the scent of your favourite flowers, then you can’t be thinking of anything else.


    𝙉𝙖𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙚 𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙤𝙬𝙨 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙙𝙞𝙨𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙣𝙚𝙘𝙩 𝙩𝙤 𝙧𝙚-𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙣𝙚𝙘𝙩.


    Step outside, pause for a moment and simply notice and tune in to what you can see, hear, and feel around you now.


    How are you going to connect with nature today?

    Mental Health Awareness Week - How To Improve Your Mental Wellness

    Mental Health Awareness Week - How To Improve Your Mental Wellness

    How To Improve Your Mental Wellness.
    This week is mental health awareness week 10th – 17th May 2021. So, I thought it'd be a great opportunity to have a look at your own mental wellness and see if there's any ways that you can improve your own mental health and wellbeing.
    One of the first things I'd encourage you to do, is take an overview of your current situation, how are you currently feeling?
    If you could measure your mental wellbeing on a scale of 1 to 10, where would you score yours?


    If 10 is really strong, almost superhero like and one is very low, where on the scale would you currently put yourself?


    At this point it doesn't matter where you are, whether you think it was as low, high or in the middle. This is just a snapshot of your current position. If it's not as strong, or as high as you’d like it to be, it's just an indicator that there's room for you to make some improvements, to make some changes, to help yourself improve your own mental wellness.


    There are some fundamentals that are important foundations, like getting god sleep, good nutrition, hydration. Ask yourself are these things being taken care of.


    If they're not, then look at how you can improve these, and if they are fantastic, now look at some of the other things you can do to help improve your mental wellness.


    Now, I'd like you to do is think about your mind fitness, your mental wellness in the same way, as you probably would think about your physical fitness and wellbeing, if you want to improve your physical fitness, you wouldn't go for a walk, or a run, you wouldn't work with a personal trainer, or go to a gym, once or a even a few times and expect that to keep you in credit for the rest of your life.


    And I want you to approach and think about your mental wellness in exactly the same way.


    Consistency is the key.


    Start off by making a list of all the things that you like doing, things that you enjoy doing, hobbies, activities, past times, anything that you find relaxing, that helps to de-stress, re-energises and uplifts you.


    This is one of the reasons why so many people have been affected by the global pandemic in the last year, because without realizing it, many of us have lost outlets that used to help release and let go of some of our stresses and strains. As well as things that help to charge us up and keep us feeling good.


    With more and more people having to work from home, even the small day to day things like, the daily commute into, may have served as an unwind between home and work, the human interaction with people we meet on our way to work, or in work. The gyms have been closed, pubs, restaurants, days out holidays, all those things that people would normally take for granted, suddenly stopped.


    We may not have realised that these things were an important part of our life.


    Whether you're reading, watching or listening to this at the time of the pandemic, or afterwards, have a look at your life and ask yourself, are you consistently doing things that help keep you topped up and charged from the inside out.


    Make a list of things you like doing, whether that be simple daily tasks, or things that you do occasionally, make a list of all the things that you can do to keep your mental wellness and your mind fitness as strong as you possibly can.


    Once you’ve done that, then look at how you can do more of those things in your day-to-day life on a consistent basis


    Your action step for today, is to look at your own mental wellness score on a scale of zero to 10, then make a list of all the things you can do to help keep your mental wellness topped up as part of your lifestyle.


    Over the next few days, I'm going to share a few different tips and strategies for how you can enhance and optimize your mental wellness. In the meantime, have a think, and make a list of all the things you can do help your
