The Bombardment Begins

Brace yourself as the bombardment begins – to be read while listening to Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves by Cher.



No sooner have you put your knife and fork down after consuming your Christmas lunch than the tsunami of New Year New You emails and messages floods your in box:

  • We have retreats, resets, refocuses and everything in between
  • We have success guaranteed and promises of six figure sums abound
  • We can detox, smother ourselves in magic creams, consume the elixir of life and pop pills that will make the weight drop off in the blink of an eye


Oh, if only it were all true and the promises fulfilled – alas it is the insincerity season and the magic bean and snake oil peddlers are coming out in to the open to maximise on your post festive fragility and shout down those offering you true and genuine support.


There is lots of great stuff out there that doesn’t cost a fortune financially or emotionally. There are lots of great people out there who genuinely want to help you be the very best you can be. But the person you really need to talk to is you, and that is one conversation that doesn’t come with a price tag or false promises.


If you want to set goals for 2024 you firstly have to be honest with yourself.

  • What do you really want to achieve?
  • What do you need to do to get there?
  • How long will it realistically take you to get there?
  • What will success feel like and how will that compare to what failure feels like?
  • When and how are you going to start?
  • How will you celebrate your success?


If you want to be better or if you want to be the best, you have to buy in to yourself, be true to yourself, invest in yourself wisely and be consistent.


As you scroll through Facebook or wade through your inbox please remember, if it sounds or looks too good to be true- that is because it more than likely is. You don’t need to waste your money lining the pockets of the hope crushers when the one thing you need to invest in is you, by believing in yourself and by taking action.

Ready- Steady- Go!
