Let’s change our relationship with resolutions, shall we?
The word “resolution” rubs me the wrong way. It implies that we did something wrong this year and next year we need to resolve it. Resolutions are focused on what didn’t go well.
What we focus on expands, so if we focus on the areas that are already abundant we’ll create more abundance. As this year wraps up let’s focus on the POSITIVES of 2013 and go into 2014 with that energy!
Focus on the big wins of 2013; the goals you achieved, the successes you had, the times you were kind to yourself and others.
Here are a few of mine:
-Moved to a new city
-Started a new job
-Completed the 2013 dance challenge
-Started and built WWRadio
-Connected with so many cool people
-Reached more people in Wonderland
SO NOW IT’S YOUR TURN…
HOMEWORK– create your list of BIG WINS. Those things that went well for you in 2013. Find a bit of gratitude for those things because what you focus on expands.
Let’s THRIVE IN 2014…
Taking things a step further, if you focus on how you want to feel rather that what you want to do in the new year, you set yourself up to win. To go deep into this concept check out Danielle LaPorte’s book The Desire Map, she’s amazing.
Have you ever reached a goal and still not felt fulfilled? Achieving goals and checking things off your list doesn’t automatically translate to happiness. However, this resolution remix is a surefire path to bliss. You can be sitting at your desk accomplishing goals left and right, but your legs are asleep, you’re exhausted, and you have a cold cup of tea on your desk… how does that feel? Not the greatest right? If you stay focused on how you want to feel and reassess your goals based on that, you set yourself up to win.
HOMEWORK– Ask yourself how you want to feel in 2014? Perhaps three feeling words (ie. loved, sexy, excited, adored, influential, abundant etc.) Next, each day reassess what you’re going to do to feel that way. For example, you want to feel beautiful, perhaps your wear a skirt instead of yoga pants… it can be that simple.
Tell me in the comments below your 2013 BIG WINS & 2014 CORE DESIRED FEELINGS. I REALLY WANT TO KNOW, PLEASE TELL ME. Tell me yours and I’ll tell you mine too!
& Remember the lesson below, which is the biggest one I learned with year: patience.
