By now you should have written your list of all the things you need to do with the appropriate dates, during the first two weeks of the new year. If you haven’t, do it now.
In fact, it is best to write down all of the key dates of the things that you need to do for the entire month of January. So if you haven’t done this, do it now. You must allocate a timescale for each of the tasks you want to achieve and tick off each one as you do them, with a note of the outcome. This will give you a fantastic sense of achievement and help to maintain your motivation.
You then need to ensure you keep the momentum going throughout the year by doing the same for each month. If you don’t complete something within a timescale you have given yourself, don’t worry it takes practice to get it right. Carry it forward to the next day or month or week. Make sure you re-assess your priorities on an ongoing basis.
Preparation and time management will be key to your success when it comes to job hunting in 2012.
Remember to factor in time for relaxation with family, friends or ‘me’ time.
Although it is difficult to deal with the emotional affects of redundancy, is it essential that you leave all the bitterness, resentment, upset and anger behind you and focus on the new opportunities that 2012 will bring.
In order to move forward in your life with positivity, make a list of all the negative emotions that you are feeling, talk to family and friends, get it all out. Then either throw the list away, as if throwing away those negative feelings or keep it in a diary and forget about it. If you chose the latter option, you will be able to look back at the list in a years time and see how much your life has improved and changed for the better. This will boost your confidence and self-esteem and give you something to look forward to.
Thinking positively is easier said than done but if you surround yourself with people who believe in you and your abilities, who want to help you to achieve your goals and who believe anything is possible, then the world is your oyster.
I believe things happen for a reason. If you don’t get a specific job, it’s because it wasn’t right for you. Focus on your dreams, your goals and your aspirations, this is your time to accomplish them. You have been given this golden opportunity to take stock of your life and change it for the better. Don’t let it go to waste.
I believe in you.
