New Year, New You!!!

Goodbye 2017 and HELLO 2018!

What has 2018 got in store for all of us? This year, don’t put too much pressure on yourself with unachievable resolutions.

Here’s some key notes for a more successful year.

Have a clean out – you will be surprised just how invigorating this can be. Have a long, hard look at what you’ve been storing around the home over the past year. Did you use it or wear it last year? Donate, donate, donate!

Keep a positive outlook. Try hard to push negative thoughts out of your mind.

Set achievable goals! Please don’t promise yourself you will build and fly a hot air balloon over New York city this year!

Read and learn something new. Knowledge is POWER! Why not read about, and be inspired by, the lives of Amazing People.

Eat well – Sleep well – Get a bit of exercise. How simple can that be. Yes, sleeping is often a struggle for some, but by eating well and exercising both brain and body, you may help that situation.

Keep happy, positive people around you and distance yourself from those that don’t deserve your time.

Do something YOU LOVE at least once a week! How many times do you put off that peaceful walk, that gym session, a leisurely browse in the shopping centre or even that short, quiet time to read ?

Use your time well!  TIME MANAGEMENT! Much can be achieved with better Time Management! Time management is not a corporate ‘thing!’ Every one of us can utilise our time better.

Ask yourself – DO I WANT TO and/or DO I HAVE TO? You will be amazed how these two questions can help resolve conflict in your own mind when faced with uncertain questions and obligations!

LOVE WHO YOU ARE! That’s hard because our life is surrounded by judgement, pressure to appease others and to give up our time. When we say “no”, this can be misinterpreted as ‘selfish.’ It’s not; it is ‘self – is.”  You, your time, your life.

SHARE – when trying to establish your life in 2018 with some of the above points, you must remember to share yourself too. There are times when we have to be part of our work community, social community and family even when we see others disregarding it.

This year, make a point of reading more about these amazing people we feature at Amazing People Worldwide and Amazing People Schools.

Dr Charles Margerison has written about the lives of Amazing People, with the ultimate aim of INSPIRING YOU to be the best that you can be!!  His goal is to give us some solid foundations to goal setting, the will to work hard, to show us what others achieved through great adversity, hard work and a belief that they can do it. Above all, they are for your enjoyment. All these amazing stories are here for you to read and share.  We hope we have helped to give you a more positive outlook to help you make 2018 a better and brighter year!

Our historical greats and their achievements are a solid foundation of proof for teachers, parents and students, that determination, hard work and commitment pay off. This provides an effective way of reinforcing work ethics and an appreciation of how others have, not only changed our world, but truly encouraged and inspired our generation.
