It’s a new day, it’s a new dawn, it’s a new Life for me, and I ‘m feeling gooood.
Happy New Year to all of you! ILoveMe! Wishes you a great 2016 year!
And yes, it will be a beautiful year to all of us because we are positively intending it will be! So it’s time to set your intentions, shape the kind of life you would like to experience by formulating ideas, visualizing it, feeling it. And even if it might sound as a redundant topic as every year it is kind of the same New Year resolutions story but in reality this practice is really important to renew ourselves. Aren’t we different persons from a year to another?
Whatever circumstances each one of us has been through during these past 365 days, we are never the same at the end of the day. So welcoming a new year with new resolutions sets the tone of a new dawn.
Let’s get on track, and get into practice! Use the proposed powerful methods that will support you in setting and achieving your New Year resolutions.
Start first by assessing your life using The Wheel of Life – Use this beautiful tool to help you consider each area of your life in turn and assess what’s off balance. As such, it helps you identify areas that need more attention. Highlight the major segments of your life as shown in the picture below. Rate each area according to your evaluation on a scale of 1 to 10. Be really objective and honest with yourself though! The Wheel of Life is powerful because it gives you a vivid visual representation of the way your life is currently, compared with the way you’d ideally like it to be. It is called the “Wheel of Life” because each area of your life is mapped on a circle, like the spoke of a wheel. The concept was originally created by Paul J. Meyer, founder of Success Motivation® Institute, Inc.
Then, write down your intentions – On which aspect of your life do you believe you still need to improve? Now I know that we do not always achieve the intentions that were set at the beginning of the year and that is what lead to frustration and perplexity we end up feeling towards this practice. Somehow it all comes back to the way we formulate our intentions. For instance when it comes to stop smoking, it is clearly the typical most set intention many of you make (I don’t as I never smoked J) and where we always have the highest rate of failure! But can we try to phrase it in a different way? Instead of saying, “I will stop smoking in 2015” we could try “I ll love myself enough this year to take the right decisions to heal my body and achieve great health”. I think the mind should be chattered and motivated to achieve its goal and this should reflect in the formulation of the intention. Yes our unconscious mind, that is the one entity that makes things happen or not, records our thoughts and affirmations as basically as a computer does. So, be aware on the way thoughts, intentions are formulated as it makes the whole difference!
Bottom line, welcome 2016 with projects that let you break out the bubbly and keep your news year’s resolutions where you can see them! Seeing them will align you on the positive and creative length that has motivated you and thus always give you the thrill of it! Consult this wheel of Life once in a month and monitor your progress. Every month rate yourself again and compare your progresses to the previous month. This simple exercise will keep you motivation engaged and your mind focus on the set objectives. And will support you in any decision process.
Try to grow along with the Life process and imagine beautiful, meaningful things happening to you. Yes, it is as simple as imagining and believing your wishes will come true! Einstein who brilliantly said “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” So free your mind and imagine, visualize your upcoming year and all what you wish for. Be creative, believe in magic and receive gracefully.
Have a Happy 2016 Year ahead!
