Redundancy Inspiration

Have The Courage To Follow Your Heart And Intuition When Redundant!

So I am currently redundant for the 3rd time in my life from an employed job. Last time was in 2009, I was extremely worried and panicky back then, but this time I am more knowledgeable, more experienced, and more skilled than ever before.

My dream is to be a full-time writer (first and foremost), as well as a trainer and inspirational speaker on stage in London. Although I am currently actively seeking work, my heart and intuition is telling me to use this valuable time of being unemployed to fulfil my goals, ambitions and dreams. So this is why I have been focusing heavily on getting my 4th book published. I have a specific strategy with this book that I have never implemented before. I am also going to be working on my first training course/s and building my Quirky Academy – at last!

So use redundancy as a opportunity to have a break from employed work and to shape your future destiny. I want to create an online income for myself, because a lot of retail shops are shutting down and that is what I have done for 19 years of my life, it is all going online, so I need to be online! Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition when redundant, don’t look back, and keep looking forward with hope in your heart, an optimistic attitude and positive thinking!

Until next time, stay positive.

Life Is A Dream – Make Sure You Work Hard To Get Yours!!!

Magic castle at Eurodisney
Disneyland Paris – Where Dreams Come True And Magic Is In Abundance!

Last day in work - Being made redundant.Some look at their dream from afar, never really exploring how they are going to achieve it. Never making a plan, never taking any action, never taking any risks, never learning; growing; thinking; or doing. I am not one of those people. I see a dream and I go after it. Sometimes it takes longer than anticipated to get it, but I won’t give up. Better to have lived and tried, than given up!

I am being made redundant for the 3rd time in my life on Thursday 21st Sept. I am however, going to be staying on for 4 weekends, part-time, until 15th of October. It is in effect to trial the part-time job that they are replacing my full-time one with. But after that I will be taking redundancy as I cannot live on a 16 hour contract.

Although I keep getting tearful at leaving a day job I love, and leaving work colleagues – some of whom I can call friends, and feeling the anticipation of what job I will get to replace it, I am also optimistic that I can now pursue my dreams and devote the time I need to make them happen. The 4 week trial will actually be a trial for my own business stuff, to see how well I can cope working from home by being routined and disciplined about it, to achieve the results I want. Although I think what I have planned, will take more than 4 weeks to get off the ground .

I feel there are so many books in me that I have to get out while I am alive. Two are especially important and an absolute must, so I have already started to type one of those up! And trying to get it out asap.

My Quirky Academy is going to be an online training centre for entrepreneurs, start-ups and creatives, and I have started the foundation of correct web set-up for that. I have just obtained my independent IP address for my sites, instead of being on shared hosting, and an SSL certificate for Quirky Academy and two other sites, so I can have secure shopping carts on them. One of those sites is my own Quirky Books e-book store – I have waited over 6 years to convert that site into an e-book store and have much to learn.

So life for me right now, is about to become an unstable rollercoaster of an adventure, one full of optimism, musts, and action taking. One in which I aim to keep a positive mindset, to go achieve my dreams.

Wish me to get my dream, as I will always wish you to get yours.

Stay positive

Redundant? Retired? Think Again!! Generation Cherry Book Review

If you have been made redundant here is a helpful book for you!!

Generation Cherry Book Review

Generation Cherry is a cracking book for the 50+ generation. Being an avid reader and Author of self-help, how-to and Personal And professional development books, I can see how much time, effort, knowledge and skill, the writer has put into creating this book.

Essentially, this book is a well-written and crafted system for how to cope with your life after retirement, redundancy, or a change in circumstance, using the 4 autonomies to get your life in balance, keep it that way, and get a second bite of the cherry of life!

What is good about this book is it also covers how to deal with life when you have less money, in a productive and positive way, using Enlightened Thrift. So you have that feel good factor in your life, whatever the circumstances.

The use of quotes and references throughout the book adds to its helpfulness and I particularly enjoyed reading the play on Stephen Covey’s words “Seven Insidious Excuses Forcibly Rejected By Highly Effective people”.

If you are into NLP, A Coach, Entrepreneur, or New Lifer, this book is for you!

I would have given this book 5 Stars because I admire the Author’s work and have respect for him because of it. However, I am not the intended target audience, I am under 40 and did not like the remarks made about young people throughout the first half of the book. I felt they are stereotyped and as not knowing what they want and that they aren’t as successful in business as older people are. The Author managed to redeem himself in the latter half of the book, where he reveals having a young mindset is key to living a long and happy life, and that in his 70s, he adopts a young mindset and is still learning and looking forward to new adventures, while being a second biter of Generation Cherry!

Redundancy – You Are Stronger Than You Think!

Blue Sky at night - Shepherd's delight
Beautiful sky near my home
Golden moments.

I know you are feeling weary and sad right now.

I know you are feeling lost and lonely somehow.

I know this situation has taken its toll; but make going forward your only goal.

You are stronger than you think, live life in the present, because it can vanish in a blink.

Find your passion, find your why, lives your dreams before life goes by.

Seize the moment, live for today, plan for the future day by day.

Set goals, and believe in you, take action and follow through.

You are stronger than you think you are, follow your intuition, like a guiding star.

Keep looking forward and don’t look back. The past is past, exactly that.
