Take Back Control Of Your Life

Hi everyone

It’s important not to live your life by others, live it by what you believe is right for you.

Plenty of people will try to tell you what job you should be doing and how you should live your life. From now on, you must take control.

Redundancy can make you feel out of control and the way to get it back is for you to take ownership of the situation. Establish your needs and wants right now and in the future. Make a plan on paper about how you are going to get these needs me. Then, you need to start taking action. Write down each day and week, exactly what your goals are. At the end of that day or week, tick off what you have achieved or carry it forward to the next day or week until you have accomplished it. You should have 5 lists:

  1. Emotional needs – Upset, angry, depressed and want to feel better. Solution, see a counsellor or talk to family and friends.
  2. Personal needs – Raise your self-confidence. Solution, join a support group, try new things, buy new clothes.
  3. Professional needs – Need up-to-date skills for jobs. Solution, take a course to update skills, get work experience.
  4. Financial needs – No income. Solution, get benefits sorted and set a budget for shopping.
  5. Practical needs – To make job searches as quick and easy as possible. Solution, turn a room into an office for job hunting and visit http://www.beatredundancyblues.com and http://www.beatredundancyblues.co.uk to get access to Job Sites, Recruitment Sites and Courses Sites from within the one site.

Remember, these are your needs, nobody else’s. If you ask other people what they think you need and want, you are not in control and it defeats the purpose, that is to put you ‘back in the driving seat of your life.’

After you have ticked off each achievement, you still need to acknowledge these successes in your diary. If you do this as positive reinforcement, your subconscious will realise the progress you are making and it will be more motivated to take conscious action.

Until next time

Stay positive

Launch of beatredundancyblues.co.uk

Hi everyone

I am pleased to announce that beatredundancyblues.co.uk is now officially launched.

beatredundancyblues.co.uk is very similar in content to beatredundancyblues.com with access to Job Sites, Recruitment Sites and Courses Sites, from within the one site. The difference with the .co.uk version, is there is much more opportunity for interaction with you. Let me know what you like about the site and any further help and support you need through your comments and feedback.

As you may be aware from my last post, I recently went to London on Monday 15th of July to meet Her Majesty the Queen and I had the opportunity to speak to her. You can read the full story on my writing blog at http://www.quirkybooks.wordpress.com This was for the CSV 50th Jubilee Celebration. I started working as a Health Buddy for Community Service Volunteers whilst being unemployed and look at where it has led to.

I know redundancy can be difficult and if anyone had said to me when I was first made redundant, that I would be meeting and speaking with HM the Queen in a few years time, I would have laughed and not believed them. When I was made redundant for the second time, my attitude towards what is possible in life, began to change and now I believe that anything is possible. The more I believe that, the more impossibles do become possible. It all starts with baby steps of stretching yourself, your knowledge and your experience. My Grandma says there is no such word as can’t and if you don’t believe there to be, then that is true. Start believing that your dreams can become a reality and then take steps to make it happen.

Stay positive

beatredundancyblues.co.uk Coming Soon

Hi Everyone

I am mega busy at the moment creating my beatredundancyblues.co.uk website, it will be very similar to beatredundancyblues.com with all of your favourite information pages but with a blog added for much more interaction with you. This way you can let me know what you like and what you don’t and what other help and support you need in your quest to find employment.

Watch this space for the official launch of beatredundancyblues.co.uk

My web host who hosts beatredundancyblues.com has decided to stop people from using RVSiteBuilder  to build any new website by removing it from their system. As my site is built using this, I now have to get access to my site admin panel through a link. I was informed that eventually the RVSiteBuilder will be dis-continued completely. beatredundancyblues.co.uk was due to be launched at the end of this year but in light of this new challenge, I am creating it now and transferring it’s valuable information over to beatredundancyblues.co.uk. I have to do this manually and re-format it before adding it to the new WordPress.Org site for beatredundancyblues.co.uk

For those of you who are not familiar with beatredundancyblues.com and what is is about, here is an except from it:

This website is designed to give you easy access to a wealth of knowledge, experience and skills needed to survive redundancy and get back into work. No longer do you have to trawl through website after website trying to find the information you want, you can get it all here at the click of a button.

Make your job search easier by getting instant access to these sites at the click of a button. Find an area that interests you and get right to it.
This website is essential for anyone who is:

  1. Redundant
  2. Unemployed
  3. Changing Career
  4. Job Hunting
  5. Lacking In Direction
  6. Wanting Motivation
  7. Needing Help
  8. Looking For Support

I have to say that using WordPress.org compared to the .com version has been far more challenging than I thought it would be. What experience have you had with the .org version compared to the .com? Have you got any advice or hints and tips on how to get the best out of using the .org version?

On thursday this week, I am going to an awards ceremony by the police to be awarded a Good Citizens Award. I feel honoured and humbled to be getting the award and thought I would let you know.

Write soon

Sandra
