I use to be the person who made lists and lists of new year’s resolutions. Items on my list were usually exercising, dropping the weight gain from the holidays, working toward’s a promotion at work, saving more money, etc. Then about four years ago…I made the resolution to make no resolutions. How liberating. Did I stop planning? No. This is the shift that I made:
Instead of creating lists of goals, I changed over to creating a visualization of the entire year, inlcuding painting a picture of my life having accomplished all of my goals already. First, I write it all down (it is usually several pages), then I practice the visualization. So for instance, right now, I am visualizing as if it is Dec 9, 2011 and reflecting back over 2011 appreciating everything in my life. In my picture, I include my business, my personal life, my family life, my spiritual life, my intellectual life, etc…it is the whole picture with very part of me.
What I noticed is that I am easily able to create the feeling of accomplishment…which is the vibration that a person needs in order to manifest successfully.
I am curious about how you handle the idea of New Year’s Resolutions? Do you make them? Do you keep them? Do you do something differently?
