New Year’s resolutions are fun to make, but difficult to maintain. Self Improvement & Development is typically front and centre when it comes to New Years Resolutions.
Each January, roughly one in three people resolve to better themselves in some way. A much smaller percentage of people actually make good on those resolutions. While about 75% of people stick to their goals for at least a week, less than half (46%) are still on target six months later, a 2002 study found.
It's hard to keep up the enthusiasm months after you've swept up the confetti, but it's not impossible. This year, pick one of the following worthy resolutions, and stick with it. Here’s to your future!
Being an education institution, it's obvious that we'd challenge you to take a course to better yourself; small workshops, small courses are great – but what about something that will garner you with a certificate that you can take forward into your career or career change!
Whether it's confidence building, life coaching, or a health benefit there is a course for that!
Health and Fitness Courses
There is an ever-growing interest in exercise and general fitness as a means of promoting well-being and a healthy body. For starters, our Online Health and Fitness Courses help the fitness industry, and other big employers in health clubs, gyms and resorts. A one or two week course can sometimes qualify you as a fitness leader, but without a lot more, you may never go beyond the first rung of the ladder. Fitness leaders who do well and develop long term careers are those who do more studies, moving on to such things as:- Freelance Life Coach or Personal Trainer, Health Club or Leisure Centre Manager, Leisure Industry Business Owner/Operator.
Life Coaching Courses
With Life Coaching courses online, you can learn how to encourage others to achieve maximal well-being. This course will enable people in health, fitness, counselling, social work, etc to help others set and achieve life goals. Develop an appreciation of how different perceptions of the world can be just as critical as knowledge, skill and opportunity in a person's success or failure. This also covers coaching processes, coaching skills and goal setting; and is equally relevant to developing both physical and psychological well-being in the client.
You'll read that "Life coaches (or personal coaches) enable individuals to realise their aims, fulfil their potential and become successful. Originating in the US about ten years ago, it is an emerging discipline in the UK. Life coaches help clients translate their thoughts into actions through support, structure and encouragement. Using listening and questioning techniques, they build trust and explore clients’ values. Clients are then able to discover and establish their life goals, and develop a plan to achieve them."
Psychology and Counselling Courses
Interest in studying psychology has grown enormously in recent years. Psychology is the study of people, the mind and behaviour.
