There is so much going on in my life right now that's pretty cool! My new job is going well! I'm still a newbie and have a lot to learn but I'm trying to embrace it best I can :D
I'm also getting some good feedback with Younique, it's teaching me how to be more of a leader and learning more about business, makeup and attraction marketing :) I think it's good for me cause it gives me a hobby outside of nursing too! :D
The thing with network marketing is, it's not a "get rich quick" scheme and anyone who tells you otherwise is either very business minded and knows all the tricks in the book and are very lucky... or they're a liar. It takes time to build a business.
My business is growing slowly but surely. But I have a lot in the pipeline. I've been reading and watching youtube videos about personal development and how to improve yourself as well as your business (which is two birds one stone for my nursing career too!)
I've been trying to improve my profiles on Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, and Instagram and I'm actually doing quite well. I'm reaching out to beauty bloggers and it's actually gotten me some cool things to look forward to.
Having a new job as a nurse and doing Younique is forcing me to be more organised.
Both are helping me to earn more money which is giving me more to think about in relation to saving money and what I can actually save for :D
I've rearranged my room, (my desk is next on my agenda, I want to bin the desk entirely and that way I'll have more space to put new things in my room!)
I'm gonna start like a goal diary. Gonna get a new diary tomorrow in town and refer to my old faithful friend Pinterest to organise my business alongside my work life, jot down goals and an action plan to achieve these goals :)
Here are some of my goals for nursing:
1) To learn more about the different types of medications used in cardiac arrests
2) To make the most of training and resources that I have available
3) Watch Youtube videos on topics that I don't understand and refer to emergency nursing books I have
4) Always ask questions
5) Be assertive and confident in the way I speak
6) Evidence Based Learning :)
Here are some of my goals for Younique:
1) To get another promotion with Younique
2) To recruit two new people
3) To remind myself every day that I am and can be a leader
4) To aspire confidence in people
4) To improve my sales
5) To talk to people about Younique more
6) To always have business cards on me and leave them in various public places that people can find them
I'm excited for the future!
Also boyfriend's mum and I were chatting earlier and we're thinking of having a girly weekend with some friends away to England this year so that'll be something great to save for!
I'm also saving for a new car, a possible holiday over the summer, and starting to save for a new house someday or "rainy day fund"
And possibly sell my little rattler of a granny car hehehe!
Everyone loves the idea of changing themselves for the better, yet are reluctant to do so because it requires effort, commitment, failure and struggles. No one wants to show or see their own weaknesses that comes with change. So that's why a lot of people around this time of year want to change and set unrealistic unattainable goals what I call "New Years Week To Do List". Instead of trying to change themselves baby step by baby step. Then they wonder why they can't change.
But regardless of people's reluctant frame of mind to change, life goes on. In that same breath, life = change. So whether you're ready or not, people will come and go in your life, circumstances and events will unfold in the next year that will force you to change anyway. So you may as well try and use it to your own advantage and set realistic, achievable goals that you can alter or make more difficult as the year goes on.
This time last year I was struggling with the concept of being a final year student. Struggling to keep afloat with my exams and assignment deadlines. Anxiety about being expected to know so much more than I did despite my best efforts. Had a flat that I barely lived in due to placements being more close to home than I originally anticipated and some hostility issues in the house. My nanny had just passed away. (That in itself forced a few people out of my life) Issues with placement confidence wise. Two amazing holidays to Spain. Spending time in the cottage with my family. Passing my exams. Getting my first Nurse Post. Graduating. Some people who I started the year with are no longer in touch with me, (despite my previous efforts to try and rekindle friend relationships). I'm not a perfect person and I'm not saying that I've been a victim the whole time, I take responsibility for my actions and with that comes consequences. So I understand that not everyone is gonna stay in my life forever. Sad as it may be. ;\
My personality has changed some what over the course of 2014. I think I'm a bit more of a softie than I used to be. For instance, I have a pin board dedicated to fluffy and cute animals on Pinterest! (Follow me below!) I never used to be really into animals until this year :) I love them sure but I never cooed over them like I have recently haha!
I'm also a stronger person as I know what I can overcome and how much I can take on at one time. It is just managing this and remembering to not take on so much is my problem! LOL!
Last year I had two jars. One jar was for "New Years Resolutions" The second jar was for "Completed Resolutions" Some of them were achievable, others are long term goals that might take me a while, so those ones will still apply this year.
But here's a list of my new Years Resolutions
1) To become more knowledgeable in Emergency Nursing
2) Travel more
3) Do one brave thing occasionally
4) Don't trust people too much
5) Become better at reading people
6) Start my own Reflexology business.
7) To love and appreciate people more and be grateful for those in my life :)
8) Do yoga/pilates more
9) Meditate spiritually more
10) Keep a fitter and healthier lifestyle (starting juice plus!)
Tune in next year to see if any of these were completed... HAHA!
I am a 25 year old nurse, who is trying to find herself. This blog will contain epiphanies I have, my yoga progress and other such things. Enjoy. :)
