I love beginnings, and there’s no better time to start the ball rolling than a brand new year. It’s the time many of us reflect on what area of our lives we can improve on, or in some cases, even change. Everyone has a clear goal at the start of January to come back stronger. Unfortunately though, every year many fail at the first hurdle.
There was a massive response from you guys on an Instagram post I wrote while back entitled, ‘Stop doing shit you hate’. It seems a pretty simple statement doesn’t it? Why on earth would we be repeatedly doing things repeatedly we hated…? Well guys, it seems many of us unfortunately are. Whether that is a job, a relationship or a particular reoccurring activity. It seemed to really ‘hit home’ with a lot of you so I wanted to elaborate further….

Stop doing shit you hate...Part 1
You might be thinking; it’s all well and good making such a bold statement, but in reality I can’t leave the job I’m unhappy in or finish my dead in the water relationship. I agree, we can’t do that right away. We’d be living in a dream world if we thought we could just stop everything in life that wasn’t making us feeling content. What you can do though is put small and simple steps in place to make big life changes!
It’s never too late to start over. If you weren’t happy with yesterday, try something different today. Don’t stay stuck, do better.
I truly believe this because I did it! Over the course of a year I left the full time job I was unhappy in job to start a new career path.
Below are some of my top tips to get you started on your journey....
1. Find out what you are you happiest doing and where your passions lie
2. Do your research
3. Write it down
4. Focus on your own journey not anyone else’s
5. Find out the right people to connect with and talk to them
6. Always be grateful and a nice person
7. Work really hard
8. Be positive
9. Believe you can do it
10.GO FOR IT
Remember there will probably never be a perfect time to take a big leap. You might feel anxious at first but I reckon it would be worse to live with regrets. My advice? Always measure the risk but go with your gut instinct. When the right time is to make that jump....
