A New Year ...as I'm watching another amazing episode of "The adventures of Sherlock Holmes" with Jeremy Brett as Sherlock, I feel the need to speak about new year's resolutions, new year's adventures.
I cannot but smile a bit now when I remember that in Romania, in my family, new year's resolutions were a no no. Planning trivial activities for the next day or the weekend were out of the question as well. Why? Because of a belief! A limiting belief that said that if one plans for something to happen ... it will never do! A superstition I would say! When I look back I can see that this belief robbed the member so my family of quite a lot of potential joy and satisfaction .... it robbed them of LIFE.
On the other hand, the Western world is all about new year's resolutions. Judging by how much you hear about this on radio and TV you would say that it is a whole nation full of determined and ambitious people, all working hard towards towards their goals :)
Knowing what I know I believe that dreaming big, aiming high is a fantastic motivator!
So my darlings now as you are preparing yet another vision board, be it through words, images or both do a bit more than just setting your list of goals. Start first by preparing a success board with all of your achievements of 2012. There's nothing more powerful than your self confidence and the success board is a great stepping stone, a great way of setting yourself in a great frame of mind.
Music is always a great companion when it comes to creative activities including goal setting so play something that you really like. Be adventurous........why not try Vivaldi's "The four seasons" or Bach "Air in D".
Or, get your own music going, grab a cup of tea and start dreaming about all of the exciting things you are going to do this year! And remember to think about a few in between mini goals leading you where you want. Small steps, small successes keep you going!
