When you are initially made redundant, it can be hard to think about your future, to come up with a plan for it, and to set goals. However, in order to move forward with your life, that is exactly what you need to do. Here is some good advice on how to make goals stick.
Those of you that know me personally will also know that I’m not adverse to getting out a camera at the weekend and tagging along with my husband Brett Trafford to photograph a wedding. We were at a wedding last Friday and it started me thinking about how working with your goals is a bit like getting married, yet it so much easier to divorce our goals than our spouses.

Your redundancy is a minor setback on the path to fulfilling your dreams. It is a bump in the road.
Treat the path ahead of you, as a wonderful new adventure.
Smell the fresh air.
Look up to the stars.
Let life radiate its beauty and surround you with love, joy and happiness.
Begin afresh, embrace the new, life is about living and looking forward too.
Realise that you have the power to create an amazing future for yourself.
Listen to your heart’s desires, needs and wants. Nourish the creativity of your brain. Empower yourself to always feel great about you.
See the good in yourself and banish the bad from your life. Be around positive people, places and things that make you happy. Enjoy every minute of time.
You are no longer left behind, you are in charge and leading the way ahead.
Live life to the fullest and be true to who you are. Be the greatest you, that there can be. No one is better at being you, than yourself.
Take time to discover a new way of life, as you embrace redundancy as your re-birth.
Look forward to the new and the possible.
View the world with fresh eyes and know that like a warrior, you can tackle any obstacle that presents itself to you. You can do this because you are resilient, you are strong and you are blessed with being you.
Whilst redundant, it’s easy to feel blue. Here’s a little, inspiration for you.
Look foward to a new day, a new life and a new way.
Never worry about the past, it’s gone. There is nothing you can do to change it but you can make changes to move foward with your life.
You have hopes and you have dreams. It’s down to you, to use this opportunity, to make them come true.
Think of redundancy as the end of a chapter in your book of life. There are many chapters to come. Make sure you fill those chapters with fun, happiness and laughter. Make a list of how you can obtain each of these and the action you are going to take to achieve them. Then go for it.
Don’t live your life in fear, live it the way you want to, by using it to its full potential.
Remember, your greatest asset to any employer, is yourself. By believing in yourself, others will too.
