I am a hypnotist and it's interesting how many people I meet feel that they are out of control of parts of their lives. There's one thing that simply comes back again and again and is almost impossible for them to change in their everyday lives.
I have been feeling a little disconnected of late. I'm self-employed, and as many people who work for themselves will understand, that can be quite isolating. Not being one to sit around wallowing in self-pity, I decided to create a collaborative events and coaching company with a friend.
Never feel guilty about being selfish, it just means you are valuing and taking care of you first and foremost. When you look after you, you are then in a position to give back to others.
Yes I acknowledge life has changed in many ways, but in my view it is very much for the better. I speak as someone who had a council house upbringing with my mum working as a cleaner and dad working in a factory type of environment.
It is true that many people end up putting the same resolutions on their list year after year and not making it much past the end of January before they are broken. If this resonates with you, how great would it be to achieve your resolutions during 2012 and not experience that groundhog day moment when you're writing your list next year?
