This is the beginning of a new year. Another chance to make changes in your life that you have been wanting to make. A time to re-evaluate, re-assess, recharge. What do you want to bring into your life? What have you not dared to do before that you are ready to do now? What part of yourself do you want to give expression to that you haven’t allowed before?
Or, do you want to go on as usual? Keep to the same script. Keep your head down and keep on going? It’s all up to you. There is no reward or punishment either way except for the way you feel, about yourself and about life.
All life changes all the time. You can see it in nature. You can see it on our planet. The whole Universe changes all the time. Change is a vital part of what it is to be alive. We do not stay the same no matter how hard we try. So, knowing that you are going to keep changing the question becomes do you change in a direction that will create a better life for you or do you change in a direction that deadens you?
Change does not have to be sweeping. It can be gradual. You can take small steps keeping where you want to go in mind. But movement is essential. Just thinking about something isn’t going to do it. Getting clear on what you want and a plan of how you will get there is important. What small steps can you take today that will lead you in the direction you want to follow? How can you change your thinking about something that will result in your being able to do what you really want?
The first change has to come, of course, with a change in how we think about things. If you know what you want but have no idea how to get there it’s okay. As long as you know in your heart that the way will appear. But if you know what you want and don’t see a way to get there so you give up then you have firmly shut the door to the possibility of what you want.
It all begins with our thoughts. How we view the world. How we view ourselves. What we think we deserve and what we think we can have. You do not have to know how you will get where you want to go but you do need to know you will get there and have confidence that the Universe will point the way to you. Life, the Universe, is for us. It will help us if we allow it. If we open our minds to new possibilities they will be presented.
I’m re-reading Think and Grow Rich, which says it all. But you will find the same message in other wise books as well. Change your thoughts, change your life. You can do it. I say that because I have witnessed hundreds of my clients make those changes and create a life that feels full, rich, exciting and authentic.
My best to you in this new year of possibilities just for you.
