WELCOME 2015-MAKING IT ALL WORK
Hello again Dear Friends,
Any new resolutions you're ready to pursue? Do you wonder why so many New Years' resolutions do not come to fruition for so many? Let's start off by reviewing a few reasons why, and then what we might do differently this time.
Frankly, most resolutions don't pan out because simply wanting something is just not enough to actually get it.
It all begins by taking 100% accountability for the outcome you desire. It's not a case of "I'll try it as my time allows", or "I'll meet you half way", no, it's about YOU taking total responsibility for your life and manifesting your desires.
I find, in the questions posted to me most often that many individuals simply give up their personal power to other people and other events. It becomes very easy to blame our lack of joy or successes on our boss, our friends, our health, our finances, our mate, our society etc etc. The fact is everyone has challenges ahead as they set their course; the real question is, how accountable are you to the outcome?
Just today I had a client call me who was distraught over something he had no control over. As he explained, he decided to drive by his childhood house where he lived for over twenty years. After his mom, due to health reasons, moved out, the family sold the home to a developer who was waiting to scrape the property. As he drove by and saw homeless people living in the house, and the state of disrepair, he fell apart emotionally thinking of his past.
He called me in a deep state of sadness and anger remembering the old beautiful house he grew up in compared to what he just witnessed. We talked on the phone for a half hour and I tried to direct the conversation towards why he was giving the old house, its state of disrepair, and the inhabitants, the power to so grossly affect HIS well being?
I know this is just one small example of an individual allowing others to dictate well being or lack thereof, but I come across this type of experience all the time. Until we stop giving our power to others, accountability and success remain allusive.
So, once we decide what we want (our New Year's Resolution), and decide to become accountable, it's time to be an "emotional match" to what we want and then create a physical action plan.
The "Emotional Match", is one of my favorite topics and is simply where we begin to train ourselves to FEEL as if we already have what we desire. We can't feel sad if we desire happiness, we can't feel lack if we desire abundance, we can't feel lonely if we desire a partner; we must become a MATCH emotionally to what we desire. Oh yes, this takes practice every day!
Once we begin to feel the emotional shift, or match, we must simultaneously begin the action plan. This is where many individuals tell me they don't know where to begin or they don't have the energy to put forth the effort needed.
Trying to begin at the perfect spot can be very difficult or even impossible to ascertain, but beginning somewhere, even anywhere, just to build inertia or momentum is critical. Simply waiting to begin can be paralyzing so GET MOVING! Believe me, the correct path will eventually materialize as you move towards your goal.
Regarding the physical energy required, think about this. What really gives you energy? Is it rest, exercise, the right food, vitamin supplements?? What I have found to be the number one energizer in life is..........ENTHUSIASM! Decide, right now, to get excited about what you want, how it will feel, and how you are going to get it, and then watch your energy level grow and grow.
It's a whole new year and another perfect time to become accountable and create the love, peace, abundance, and joy we all desire!
With love and appreciation to all,
