Holiday season is in full swing and we do hope you have had or are planning a great get-away to refresh and re-focus! As we are in high-holiday season, it’s a good time to reveal one particular destination that you should definitely try to avoid – Someday Isle.

It’s likely that most people, at some point in their lives have taken a little holiday to Someday Isle. Okay, so it’s not strictly a place but it is a destination that isn’t particularly ideal for a long term stay.

Have you ever heard yourself say, “someday I’ll read that book… , take that course… , forgive the people who’ve hurt me… , get fit… , get a new job ... , get out of debt… or start working on my business idea… etc”? If so, then you have found the imaginary place of Someday Isle, it’s a mind-set where you dreamily think about your goals and what you would like for your life but you do not actually take any actions or steps towards achieving your desires.     

If this is a place you visit regularly then you probably visit it because it’s comfortable and familiar. The problem with that is that you get used to this stable and safe place where nothing exciting happens but you drift along thinking about that someday when you do the thing you’ve always thought about. The reality is that someday never comes!

Getting off Someday Isle will help you get what you truly want for your life and set you on the path to success.  It will keep your goals in mind, excitement and motivation levels up and eliminate the excuses that hold you back. In the words of Brian Tracy, vote yourself off the Island if you want to be successful.

Top tips for avoiding Someday Isle –

  1. Eliminate the word “try” from your vocabulary. Are you the kind of person who always tries to get something done? The word try could mean a lack of engagement in the end goal. Do or do not there is no try!

  2. Refuse to let other peoples’ negativity drag you down. Ignore those who repeatedly tell you it will be difficult, this is your goal, not theirs. Keep focussed and eliminate their hindering thoughts from your life.

  3. Be more aware of "Someday Isle" and remember, there are 7 days in a week and someday is not one of them! Take action and small steps every day towards achieving your goals.   

  4. Recognise and eliminate the word “but” from your everyday conversation. This word often creates excuses for yourself – I’d like to but…, I would if I could but… Creating enough excuses will lead to not taking action. Establish the excuses and do something to address it.

  5. Get a coach. Coaching is about opening a client up to the realisation that they truly can, be, do or have anything. Everyone has massive potential and a Coach will help to get you from where you are now to where you want to be.

  6. Attend The Coaching Academy’s free 2 day coaching course if you haven't already. It's a free coaching course where you will walk away with coaching skills you can use for life (www.the-coaching-academy.com).

  7. Sign up to our Managing Director, Bev James', Daily Do Its! for a daily dose of inspiration and motivation to accelerate your success (www.bevjames.com).

Top Tips For Being More Assertive

Assertiveness is a behaviour that can be learned and developed. It's a communication process that is a key quality for productive relationships. It can help you move you away from feeling passive to feeling more active and listened to on more occasions. It usually involves stepping outside of your comfort zone if you are not naturally assertive but in doing so, working on being more assertive can certainly help improve your confidence and self esteem.

Winning Ways & Olympic Lessons

Just over 12 months ago, the whole nation was gripped by the drama unfolding in a formerly neglected and rundown corner of East London. It says a lot about the incredible pace of the world that we now all live and work in that the glorious celebration that was last summer's Olympic Games feels like a very distant memory despite the great anniversary games that took place over the weekend.
