Recognise Your Achievements

celebrate.pngWe all suffer from self doubts at some time or other, it’s in our nature.

One of the best ways I have found of overcoming this is by keeping a record of the achievements that I have made, so I can remind myself, in times of doubt, that I have been successful previously.

We often forget much of what we have achieved, yet seem to remember failures so much more vividly.

So I’d like you all to take time as we approach the end of 2015 to record the successes that you had in 2014, to remind yourself of what you have achieved.

I find that when I do this just before setting the goals for the new year, it gives me more confidence for the coming year and encourages me to set bigger goals.

I will be creating a post on my goals for 2015, but today I want to reflect on what’s been achieved this year,
