Why You Shouldn't Work During the Holidays (and What You Should Do Instead)

What are your plans for the holidays? If you're anything like me, you're looking forward to time with family, and the chance to have a well-earned rest.

Or to clear the admin you've de-prioritized ahead of doing essential year-end stuff (not to mention turning up at office parties?) If so, I have a bit of advice: Don't.

Real power means letting go..

Many people spend a great deal of time and energy trying to control their lives, careers, partners or loved ones to achieve the outcomes they desire and this is often the path to unhappiness and disappointment. It is only by taking the braver course of letting go, with all of the uncertainty which that entails, that you can thrive in a state of flow and enjoy lifes rich surprises and texture.

The power of the diva

My family is from the north of England where any showing off or revealing of brilliance could be met with ‘Don’t make yourself out to be more than what you are!’ But if you are to follow the advice ‘fake it until you make it’ you kind of have to ‘make yourself out to be more than what you are’ make anything work. The truth is you can’t do ANYTHING of brilliance in life, if you don’t step into a whole load more belief then evidence!’
