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 a few 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 of things I think I "should do", I changed over to creating a visualization of the entire year, including 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 Jan 2013 and reflecting back over 2012 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 every 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.
You don't need to wait for Jan 1 to plan - you can visualize right now.
If you created a plan already and you are way off track... forgive yourself, love yourself, appreciate any progress you have made. Notice if maybe your goals need to be shifted to something else. Nothing good ever happens when we beat ourselves up.
