January 1, 2009.
Not only a new day, but a whole new year.
Have you made your resolutions? Set your intentions? Declared yourself a Big Hairy Audacious Goal?
If not, so what! Read F**k It! by John Parkin and just get on with your life.
If yes though, you might want a plan to help you manifest that goal/intention/resolution. And I’d like to help.
Not with a template of how to set goals and break them down into baby steps with timelines attached. No siree!
What I’m going to suggest is that you think about the really big thing you want to achieve for yourself this year. Imagine fast forwarding to New Year’s Eve and you’re looking back on this year, and are filled with awe and gratitude for everything you’ve experienced.
Now take a good look at yourself. Who did you become over the course of 2009 that made the manifestation of your goal possible? Describe yourself, as clearly as you can, in writing.
Because this is the real key to your success. Not what you need to do, but who you need to be. As within, so without. Your life experiences reflect your inner state of being. So, if you want to experience something new, you have to align your inner self with the new circumstances you wish to attract.
Focus on being healthy, being creative, being productive, being whatever you need to be. When you decide to be that person, you will act like that person. You will be inspired as to what you need to do, and you will do it with greater ease.
“Be the change you want to see in the world.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Be, do, have. Not any other way!
Here's looking forward to what 2009 has in store. . .
