Unlock your potential in 2017
Posted in: General
Make 2017 a big success with our handy tips on how to achieve your life goals
1) Find a fitness routine that works for you
We all think we should be fitter, but finding the time to exercise is a little daunting at first. If you’re going to start a daily fitness routine, the first step is to find an exercise you actually enjoy doing. If you don’t like aerobics or yoga classes, then you’ll probably give up before February.
2) Build your wealth by starting investing
Interest rates for savers are historically low and stocks and shares have consistently outperformed saving accounts in recent years. Investing might seem bewildering at first, but stocks and ISAs (Individual Savings Accounts) offer you a sensible way to invest your hard earned cash.
3) Ever thought of becoming your own boss?
Instead of waiting for someone else to hire you, why not set up a company and employ yourself? Being your own boss is something most people dream about. Why not become a consultant or repurpose your existing skills into a new role? You may have a special craft or trade that could become a side business to your current job.
4) Make your relationships work for you
Relationships require effort, time and commitment. Are there any in your life that are making you feel bad? Figure out how to re-establish your boundaries, so that those relationships become healthy again. Consider ending them if this can’t be done. Work on communication and closeness if you’ve fallen into a rut with a partner. You’ll find your reward in increased happiness and a better foundation for relationship futures.
