Hi folks!

Welcome to a bright shiny new year- all for you! Now, what are you going to do with it?…

Let’s talk about New Year’s resolutions…

As you may know from reading previous posts, I believe that each and every one of us has something we’re here to do, a gift special and unique to us, something we bring to the party of life that no one else can bring.

A calling, if you will…

Unfortunately, many of us don’t discover what our gift is. Many more find that gift but doubt themselves so much that they kill their dreams (“who am I to think I’m so special?..”). Still others love their gifts but somehow can never find the time to make their dreams reality.

Here’s where resolutions ( New Year, birthday or second Tuesday in March) can help….

The classic take on New Year’s resolutions is that of theoretical goals that you mean to follow-through on but will actually never complete.

For instance:

  • You resolve to lose weight.
  • You buy a gym membership.
  • You go 4 days the first week.
  • You go 3 days the second week.
  • One time the third…
  • And never again.

What I’ve found more useful is to choose projects I want to complete or areas I want to improve in the coming year.

For instance:

  • Self-publish a book on palmistry.
  • Improve my personal health and stamina.
  • Develop more classes to teach.
  • Become a better writer.
  • Strengthen my relationships with family and friends.

You get the idea.

Once I have my targets, I make a list of things that I can do to move forwards  in each area. These can be big things, like taking a series  of classes, but a lot of times, I find breaking things into baby steps, like making a phone call or painting for 10 minutes actually makes it more likely that I’ll actually complete them (this is a technique called Kaizen, that I’ll get into in more detail in the future.)

The final starting step is to figure how much time I’m prepared to commit on a regular basis to make my dreams come true:

  • One hour a day?
  • Two hours a week?
  • 15 minutes a day?

Most people believe that it takes a major time commitment and sacrifice in all other areas of their lives to make their dreams a reality. Putting a majority of your time into your dreams does move them along faster, but the interesting thing is that a regular commitment of even small amounts of time can change your life in a major way.

So, giving a half an hour twice a week to your gift instead of  t.v., extra naps, or surfing the net can make your dreams reality far sooner than you might realize.

 (Don’t get me wrong- I love t.v., naps and surfing. It’s just that the secret to happiness is often about prioritizing my dreams 🙂 )

Resolutions are only the beginning. I’m going to be doing a series of posts on psychological, metaphysical, and personal development ways to make your dreams real..

But, if you’re starting on a journey of transformation, the first thing you need to know is where you want to go.

So,what would you like to do this year?

More soon…
