It is currently the month that many of us will sit down and make a list of all the resolutions and changes that we want to make during this new year. There are as many ways to do this as there are resolutions! Some people will make a dream board collage on a sheet of Bristol board and take the time to cut out the things they would like to bring into their lives from magazine pictures. In contrast, other people will simply make a list of the things they would like to change in their lives.
Whether it’s getting more exercise, or get started on that book you were planning, it all boils down to having the will to make those changes and the strength and resolve to accomplish them. You also should realize that you have complete control over these changes. Not to mention that you must root these changes into your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies to make them a physical reality. You are always able to change your life in positive ways – even if you go through some of the worst moments you have ever experienced.
How do we do this?
If you are going to make some changes in your life, it’s a good idea to prioritize and then track your progress. Make sure that you create affirmations to help anchor your resolutions and changes within yourself using power words to give them a foothold in your psyche. In addition, take the time to make regular evaluations of your progress, no matter how small, goes a long way to building your self-esteem and enthusiasm for the project. Furthermore, be sure to set reasonable goals for yourself and reward yourself for a job well done.
“I have the strength to make any changes in my life that I choose to.”
In days gone by, people used to sit on their porches to watch the sun go down and after a particularly spectacular sunset would clap in appreciation of the beauty they had just witnessed. Unfortunately, this is no longer a common practice.
