Here you are, another new year and another opportunity to make promises and commitments to your Self that you know you probably won’t keep.
Yet you continue to make them year after year.
What were your resolutions?
Did you know that losing weight, that few extra pounds, tops the list for this year, 2011? How many of you staked your claim in dropping that holiday bulge?
Moving Beyond the New Year’s Resolution Cycle
Every year, it’s the same old thing.
We want to lose weight, find a better job, a better relationship, a bigger place to live, and so on.
Yet, as we sit on the eve of the Next new year reviewing the one to pass in retrospect, how many of your resolutions did you actually accomplish.
And how many of them did you relinquish after only a mere short weeks offering the explanation of “well, there’s always next year?”
According to one website here are some sobering statistics:
40 to 45% of American adults make one or more resolutions each year. The following shows how many of these resolutions are maintained as time goes on:
- past the first week: 75%
- past 2 weeks: 71%
- after one month: 64%
- after 6 months: 46%
What if this year was the year you choose to have a different result?
What if this was the year where you believed you could have and were deserving to have all that which you desired? Would you change or rephrase your resolution to one which left you feeling a bit more empowered?
In this new year, the time is now upon us to seek all those things we desire from within.
When we look to our external environment to offer us feelings of satisfaction, as you can see from the statistics above, often times we are left feeling unfulfilled.
How can you make this shift?
Begin by accepting your own worth. To believe that you are worthy.
But the most important element necessary when making this shift to your internal environment is that of Self Love.
As you begin to explore the love within which is eternal, your life force energy begins to shift and as it shifts, new possibilities arise and often times things become effortless to obtain or achieve.
We call these “miracles.”
So before you cross out this year’s resolutions before you even have a chance to get started, look at them through a different set of eyes, the eyes of Love, and see how those things you look at begin to shift.
Happy New Year!
May this be the best one Ever!
