We’re at the end of the year – so how was it for you?
What have been the highlights and achievements of your year?
If you were to give this year a mark out of ten, how would you rate your year?
Would it be a derisory 1, measly 2 or a paltry 3 - a poor 4, average 5 or respectable 6 - a good 7, a great 8 or maybe even a fabulous 9 or totally brilliant 10?
What is it about the end of the year that makes it a good time to take stock?
We have a culture of looking back around this time of year – with all sorts of TV programs looking back at the events of the year, the trends, the politics, what happened in the media.
But the end of a year also provides a convenient cut-off point for you on an individual level to reflect on what’s happened - and either recognise and celebrate it or put it behind you and move on.
And to go with this there’s the annual goals fest of New Year resolutions.
The fact is the idea of new beginnings is a conceptual device – a framework to hang a review of the past and preview of the future on.
Recognising that one year is ending and a new one beginning makes for a common point of reference.
But whenever you’re reading this, you can do exactly the same. Because a year is just a unit of time to measure things by – and you can use any unit of time at any time of the year to take a step back and review what you’ve achieved and not achieved and if you’ve met your goals or fulfilled your desires for the year.
We’ve been reviewing the past year past year ourselves and we’ve recorded it for you in this week’s podcast - Come behind the scenes with us in Episode 22 ‘How would you rate your year’ to find out about our year.
And then rate your own and let us know your score and some of your highlights and achievements.

If you’ve ever doubted what visualization can do for you, or about the power of your subconscious mind to influence what you do and how you do it, listen to the interview with our guest on today’s episode of the Changeability Podcast - Dr Eva Detko.
Dr Eva talks about how she used the power of visualization in her bid to compete in Latin and Ballroom competitions from a regional level right up to the national finals at the international home of ballroom dancing – in Blackpool, England.
At the heart of this and the work that Dr Eva does with her clients is finding ways to harness the power of the subconscious mind to help us achieve what we want to achieve.
This might be through the hypnotherapy that Dr Eva specializes in, or in releasing the build-up of the stresses and strains of everyday life that will be detrimental to our health in the long term.
Talking of health, Eva is also a Nutritional Therapist with a clear view on the inter-related link between mind and body, what we eat, our emotions and state of mind.

Why use affirmations to manage your mind?
Positive affirmations are a powerful tool and technique when it comes to managing your mind.
They are positive, specific statements that focus you on the self-beliefs, behaviours and characteristics you need to achieve your goals and live the life you want.
The idea behind affirmations is that through repetition you gradually implant them into your subconscious mind.
They help you manage your mind by exerting a positive influence on the way you think about yourself, and in turn the way you act. And in doing so, positive affirmations help to counteract the self-sabotaging, negative affirmations and thoughts that get in the way of achieving your desires and intentions.
In episodes 17 and 18 of the Changeability Podcast we talked about what affirmations are, how to create your own and how to use them.
This week we look at some different types of affirmations. We discuss what to do if you feel affirmations wont work for you or you’ve tried them and weren’t sure if they worked, or you’re worried about setting yourself up for failure.
And we share some affirmations with you, to give you some examples that you can use yourself or as inspiration for creating your own affirmations. You also get a relaxing glimpse into one of our Brilliant Living® affirmations. These are professionally recorded affirmation tracks you can choose to download from our shop.
So sit back, relax and take a listen now.
