1. Save before you spend

You need to know what money is a fixed outcome each month e.g. rent/bills and what is surplus. The best way to do this is split the different expenditures over two bank accounts and that way you know exactly what you have to spend. It quite easy to open a savings account online and manage this with online banking. Calculate how much your fixed outgoing per month is and move this into another account on payday, what you have left is surplus. Commit to saving a fixed amount each month which will make part of the monthly outgoings moving into another account.

6 Questions You Should Ask Yourself Before Accepting a Job Offer (2 min read)

Whether you are an active job seeker or not, the idea of committing to a future working in the unchartered territory is stressful! Saying yes to a job that doesn’t support your career goals may reduce your motivation and add unnecessary stress to your life. But saying no may mean missed opportunities for personal and professional growth!

Here are a few questions to ask yourself before saying “YES!” to a new job.

1. What is your motivation for accepting a new job?

Hate the job you’re in? Jumping at the first job offer you get may lead you to hate that job too.  Looking to expand your experience? Make sure that you’ll be getting the experience you want before saying yes! Time for a change? Change is good, go for it!

2. What are your short-term goals in a job?

Do you want to improve your client service skills? Learn more about human resources? Short term goals are just as important as long-term goals. Identify some short term goals to help steer you toward your end goal.

3. What is your career end goal?

It’s okay if you don’t know. Pick a ‘ballpark’ end goal. Do you want to manage people? Be a successful writer? Teach? Be an expert in accounting? Identify what you are working towards and start building the path thereby accepting jobs that will help with your personal and professional development.

4. Will this job add valuable skills and experience to your resume?

Any experience is a good experience. But don’t settle for just any experiences. What skills and experiences can this job offer you that will help you reach your short-term and long-term career goals?

5. What do you value most in a job?

Do you value autonomy? Challenges? Opportunities to work in a team environment? Do some research. Interview your interviewer and find out if your values are the right fit for the job they are offering you.

6. What work-related activities keep you from staring at the clock?

Do project base activities keep you engaged all day? Maybe math related work makes time fly by. Identify what you love to do at work, and identify the things you hate while you’re at it. If you’ve been offered an administrative opportunity, and you hate administrative tasks, pass on the job and find another, more enjoyable way to add those skills to your resume.

Choose wisely and aim for the stars!

7 Quotes for when You Find Yourself Comparing Yourself to Others (2 min read)

1. “Everything in life is easier when you don’t concern yourself with what everybody else is doing.”

There’s this saying that also says, ‘Comparison is the thief of joy’ and I feel like it’s a little bit of an extension of the above quote as well. When we concern ourselves too much on what everyone else is doing and keep on comparing, it makes everything in life harder because we end up putting too much pressure on ourselves. We end up making unreasonable expectations for ourselves that we’ll struggle to achieve and that in turn will just make us miserable and burnt out.

7 Relationships that Will Change Your Life (2 min read)

I have lived life in the jungles with long periods of time in isolation which has changed my life and perspective on many things but one greater than all is friendship. Some of my heroes and those I respect who have accomplished amazing things in this world, have relationships with those who believed in them, encouraged them, prayed for them, and even sacrificed to see their goal accomplished. So how do you meet “those” kind of people. The answer may not be what you think. Often in this world, we look for those who are more successful, richer than us, and more powerful because we think that will help us. But, let me share with you the kind of friendships you should have in your life to help you reach your goals, to bring happiness, to endure with you, to empower you, and encourage you when times get tough.

I have only missed one day of work (I was suffering with acid reflux). Otherwise, I am at work, early, teaching and making a difference in the lives of my students.

What are the Characteristics of a Dreamer? Something that is very interesting is how many people will dream rather than do. We are all dreamers of sorts. It does not take much to have a dream, and everyone has them. But most just settle and don’t try to make that dream a reality. Life does not have to be something that we just let pass by, we can live to the fullest, with no regrets, here is a bit of insight in how.

Shut Up and Drive (3 min read)

If a close ‘friend’ told you that you were never going to make it in your profession, be great at your hobby or do well in life would you actually believe them?

I guess the obvious answer to all of the above is, well maybe. But when this number starts to grow and things look tough it can be hard to be positive, go against the grain and take on your own personal challenges. That’s why remaining positive, determined and having that drive are sometimes harder to find, I’ll admit personally the whole idea of this gives me anxiety but for some miraculous reason I just have this driving force to keep me moving forward.

Firstly when tasked with attempting to take on this blue, unmotivated feeling you’re likely to get comments such as ‘just smile’ or ‘you shouldn’t think like that’, feeling motivated yet? Probably not. But if you begin to picture the end goal and the feeling of this moment then things start to feel a tad more achievable, so say I wanted to get an A in my next test the initial thought of this may be quite daunting and demotivating in itself. However look at it this way, first of all, ask yourself ‘is this goal remotely achievable?’ No? OK so I aim for B this is definitely more within my reach and I’m only averaging a C.

Next, once you have created this realistic personal goal you may want to assess the time frame, in this example, it would be the test date. So from this, I can take the time to mentally or physically plan ahead and meet the self-created or set deadline. Not pushing on yourself, but then not completely ignoring the fact that THERE IS A DEADLINE! To put it simply put say a few hours aside each weekend before the exam to properly study and remove social media, your phone and any other distractions from the scenario. It may be helpful to beforehand plan how you may use the time you have so say this week I’m going to focus on topic A because this is the one that I most struggle with.

Finally the last thing to do would be refresh and remind yourself during the week for example if you picked up the studying you had done or the work you had completed and just went over it for say ten minutes just to ensure that it was stuck right there in your mind and that your brain hadn’t forgotten about all the ‘supposed’ hard work you had done. Allowing for that thought to be mentally instilled in your mind, almost forcing your brain to store the idea, plan or studying at the forefront of your mind.

In summary, the situation and positivity you feel are relative to how much time, and overall effort you want to possess to be at the desired end point.

Key points (if you don’t have the time to read!)

  • Positivity = the key
  • Picture and feel the end goal
  • Refresh and remind
  • Have fun whilst doing it 🙂
