The festive season is upon us. It is time to take stock of the past year and set goals for the year ahead. We bring you four ways to help start 2016 in the best way you can.
1. INVEST IN YOUR FUTURE
Learning a new skill to better yourself is a great way to start the New Year. If you have been bored and frustrated in your job this year, it could be because you are not doing what you are passionate about. List the things you are good at and enjoy doing. Do research on what careers will suit you best. From there, you will have a clear idea of what career path you should take, and you will be able to select the correct course to study.
You have the right to an affordable education, no matter your financial situation. Oxbridge Academy aims to help you realise that right. You can register with Oxbridge Academy right now from only R290 per month. Secure your spot before the January rush. Oxbridgeacademy.co.za
2. SAVE YOUR MONEY
It can be easy to waste your hard-earned money on unnecessary things over the holidays, and come January you will be broke, disappointed and stressed. Make an effort to save money and think twice before you make a purchase. This way you will have money and won’t have to worry about taking out a loan or being broke in January. To help you save, set up a savings account that requires a set amount of time to withdraw money and place a minimum amount into the account every month.
3. CHANGE YOUR HABITS
Make an effort to change the things about your lifestyle you do not like. It could be anything from partying less and exercising more to simply drinking 8 glasses of water a day instead of 8 cups of tea. A change is as good as a holiday and you will be surprised how a small change can make a big difference in your life.
4. SET GOALS
Write a list of things you want to achieve in 2016 and plan out how you are going to achieve them.
Perhaps you are unhappy in your current job and feel stuck because you don’t have the right skills to apply for the job you want. Set a goal to study further and up-skill yourself for that dream job.
