New Year’s Intentions, Not Resolutions
I hope you had a very happy Christmas with family and friends and that you got everything you wished for. There is four days left of 2020.
How are you spending it? Are you off or working? Are you taking it easy or getting ready for the new year? Whatever your plans this week, I hope you will make time to set your intentions for how you want 2021 to look, for both your personal life and your business life.
We usually hear of making New Year’s resolutions but most people break them within the first three weeks. Resolutions don’t work because you are resolving to either do – or not do – something.
Intention-setting is more positive and easier for the brain to embrace. How you phrase your intentions will be a key factor in whether or not you attract them.
Here are some key points to state and set your intentions for the New Year:
1. Take time to be in quiet to review this past year – what you accomplished and what you didn’t. Think about what you want in your future – meditate on it.
2. Write down the goals or activities that excite – or frustrate – you. These should go on your intention list as they are within reach.
3. Write your intentions as descriptive as you can, in the present tense, and with the words “I can:”, “I will”, or “I must”; these phrases have a motivational effect on your brain that moves it in forward motion.
Take the time this week to make 2021 your best year yet. You have the power to make it happen. I wish you all you desire and much success, happiness, wealth and health for the new year. See you in the new year!
