A fairground ride into the future

Fairground rides roller coasterHow has 2017 been for you?

A roller coaster ride, or a more predictable ride on the carousel?

When you started the year, which did you want?

It’s worth starting to think about 2018 and what you want from it. Even though you can’t see what’s coming, you CAN influence what turns up. One thing for sure is that the future will more likely bring what you keep thinking of, than what you don’t.

So start thinking and focussing on what you really want for the next year. And you know enough by now to realise that this means thinking about what you DO want rather than what you don’t want.

So what are your dreams for the coming year?

What do you want to achieve?

What do you want to be doing?

How do you want to feel?

You don’t need to tell me your answers, but you DO need to tell yourself.

I wish you success in realising your dreams and may health and happiness be your constant companions along the way.

From all of us at People Alchemy, our heartfelt very best wishes to you and your families for Christmas and the New Year.
