“If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy and inspires your hopes.” —Andrew Carnegie
Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer
One of the key ingredients to inner happiness is setting intentions, or "goals," for yourself. These goals should excite you when you think about them. These should be intentions that are yours and make your heart sing. When we have goals that make us feel good, we also feel alive and empowered. We make better decisions for ourselves and we feel more fulfilled and inspired to take the actions necessary to realize them.
As you embark on a new year, the BEST resolution you can make is to keep your "love tank" full every day! This should be your first priority, and will help you with all of your other goals and resolutions. This means focusing your thoughts, words, time, energy, and actions on things that bring you joy and calm. When we are in this calm space (in "the flow"), we have the power within ourselves to create the outcomes we truly desire. If you want this year to be the best year of your life, you must first concentrate on you! You must recognize that you are amazing and brilliant in your own right, and that you can create anything you want in life (and that you deserve to have your dream life!) You need to concentrate on feeling more love in your heart for yourself than ever before. Recognize the Infinite Source of Power that resides within you. You will then be able to feel even more love for everyone else, as well as everything that you see, hear, taste, touch, smell, and think about.
Now for the really fun part!
If you want to achieve the life that you will love this year, you’ll need to start with a blank piece of paper. You can use this to create on and fill it up with all of the amazing things you would like to see in your life. Be sure they feel so good that you can easily imagine how much fun you’ll have as you dream about them now. You must feel how good it feels NOW as you visualize them right now, and anytime you think about them. (Check out last week's blog for 4 steps to help you with defining and creating your goals!)
The next thing you need to do is feel lots of gratitude for what you already have. We have so much! It would take a long time to truly express our gratitude and appreciation for everything we already have. Feeling good about everything in this present moment is crucial.
For example, if you want to create more money this year, you must feel good about money. You must feel only gratitude for the money you have now. Then, you must feel good about the money that others are making for themselves. You are happy for them. As you think about them, you send them loving thoughts for more prosperity. If you want more clients, you express gratitude for the clients you have today. Then, take the action with joy to grow your client base. You must feel good in the process. Your love tank needs to be tended to and constantly filled.
If you want better health, find things to be grateful for with your health today. What does your body allow you do that you can be grateful for? Can you walk or run? Do you have arms that can hug your loved ones? Do you have hands that allow you type, draw, and pick things up? The list is endless. Send love to your body for all it allows you to do today.
While positive thoughts are very important (they have emotions attached to them that make us feel good or not), the way to achieving our goals most quickly is by feeling love and gratitude all day long for everything and everyone, including you. As you concentrate on feeling good with each experience you have during your day, you will be sure to think positive thoughts and deepen these good feelings. These good feelings of love allow you use your imagination to its fullest.
Remember, our imaginations play a crucial role in our creative ability. We are "feeling beings who think." And, we think in pictures. So, when we feel great and use our imagination to see a snapshot of what we want, that emotion is amplified. Our imaginations expand, allowing us to know that we can create it as it feels soooo good.
You are powerful in the act of creating your life based on your thoughts, words, actions, and how they make you feel. So, what should your number one New Year’s resolution be? It's easy...it should be to FEEL GREAT!
Have an absolutely magical week full of love, gratitude and fun, fun, FUN!
