In more recent years, there have been a number of people who have stopped making New Years’ Resolutions. Many people believe that they are going to fail at keeping their resolutions, so why set themselves up for disappointment and make them at all? Some feel that the word “resolution” sounds as though they are forcing whatever it is they want to happen, so they say “No” to making resolutions. And others have another set of reasons or excuses for avoiding making resolutions.
Here’s the thing. We are here to become the very best people we can be. We are meant to learn compassion, patience, respect, faith, perseverance, hard work, the power of our thoughts, forgiveness, gratitude, belief in ourselves and others, humility, when and how to surrender, optimism, honesty, and loyalty, just to give a few examples. And we are meant to accomplish our dreams.
Do you think that eating low vibration foods, watching Netflix endlessly, failing to exercise, drinking alcohol regularly, or spending hours on Facebook or Instagram will help you become the best person you can be? Do you think that hanging out with angry or critical people will help you see your greatness? Do you think that believing what insecure people or people who are in emotional pain say to you or about you will help you see our greatness? Do you think that setting goals will truly harm you?
It is only when we begin to think differently that we can access the information we need to help us act differently. It is only when our perceptions are healthy, that we can be healthy physically, emotionally and spiritually. I had a new client that came to me to lose weight. I knew that I could use my vast knowledge of nutrition to help her lose weight but that if we did not address the emotional cause of her need to protect herself by surrounding herself with extra weight, she would never accomplish her goal. When we determined the emotional root cause of her weight gain, it was easy for her to lose the extra weight because she was no longer sabotaging herself with her thoughts!
Set your sights on what you want – call it what you want! Create resolutions, goals or come up with your ‘one word’ for 2018 but determine you are going to be the very best person you can be or that you are going to make this world a better place or both. You don’t need to know exactly how you are going to accomplish what you want. But if you do know some steps that you can take to accomplish your goal, embark upon them. Stop making excuses for yourself. Stop seeing yourself as small.
