Are you one of the few of committed individuals who see their New Years' Resolutions through?
Would you like know the key to creating life changing habits and making them stick long enough for you to see the change?
With only about 2% of people who make resolutions seeing them through - and an estimated 80% of people having completely abandoned theirs by February - I thought I'd take this time to encourage you to make a New Year Evolution Commitment and forget the same old tired Resolutions which are doomed to fail as soon as that brief burst of motivation wanes and life takes over.
First a recap - last week we talked about Becoming Wildly Authentic. Thank you for sharing how much that message resonates with you! It's my passion and mission to help you know exactly what steps you can take to create whatever changes you dream of in your life through being you with brilliance, skill and insight :-)
The coaching tool I shared 'Why Success Doesn't...
Hi, it's Mel MacIntyre from Mel MacIntyre Coaching here, and this is the very first Real Talk with Mel - my new video blog series.
I am really excited to be here - this is something that has been brewing in me for some time now!
In Real Talk with Mel, we take a subject, and I share my musings, my insights, some challenges and ask questions that will help you to gain clarity and take action.
The very first topic is incredibly close to my heart and really defines my calling and the work I am here to do in the world - 'Becoming Wildly Authentic'.
I am really excited to share my new website with you www.MelMacIntyre.com.

Through sharing it I am also giving you a challenge - I want you to decide if it's YOUR TIME to Become Wildly Authentic.
What does that mean?
It means redefining success on your terms.
But how many of us take the time to have a clear strategy and vision for our wider life, our relationships, our health and career? If it’s a tool that works well in helping you to be successful and achieve relevant progress – why not apply it across other areas of your life that matter?
As leaders acquire more responsibilities and become more in demand, this often goes hand in hand with more plate spinning, juggling of priorities and busywork. Taking the time to get off the hamster wheel, invest in yourself and your vision for your future seems too indulgent, or something you think about doing but never get round to prioritising.

Two years ago, I was trekking in the Himalayas challenging myself to achieve something I had never done before. It was a planned part of my transition from being a senior leader employed in Financial Services to an unemployed woman unclear of who she was or what she was here to do. I had taken a career break to take some time out from the life I had worked so hard to build over the last 16 years. Some people thought I was ‘lucky’. Some people thought I was ‘brave’. Some probably thought I was crazy or unappreciative to give up what I’d achieved. Only those who knew me best and intimately knew that I was broken and really what I needed was time to heal.
It’s a funny old thing the ego. Several years before, I had the wonderful opportunity to study at Ashridge Business School. I was studying a subject that was incredibly close to my heart and my head -...
