New Year’s Resolutions – Yes or No?

Stephanie

In lieu of making resolutions, I create a manifestation list. I boldly state to the universe what I am to achieve in the upcoming year. This works for me as long as I place things on the list that are remotely attainable. As in, “Visit 10 states” is do-able  but “Visit Mars” eh, not so much. Though I add things to the list that I feel are attainable, that doesn’t mean that I know how they will come about. For example, at the end of December 2009, I wrote on my list “Ex-Smoker.” I did not say, “I want to quit smoking” or “I will quit smoking.” I worded it in a way that in 2010, I would simply BE an ex-smoker, though at that time, I didn’t know how or when that would happen. (August 2nd. It happened August 2nd and I remain an ex-smoker to this day.) I’ve read a lot of good books that have led me to this way of thinking. The Secret, The Power of Positive Thinking, Creative Visualization and Ask and it is Given are but a few. I’ve also been lucky to have some amazingly motivational and inspirational people in my life who have helped me to believe in myself.

How do you imagine your New Year to play out? Do you have things you are seeking to change or improve?

  1. Saw from Marriott hotel, a notepad that said something to the effect of Accomplishment List, which is better than a To Do List.

    The Power of Positive Thinking, Creative Visualization and Ask and It Is Given are but a few books you referred to – I’d be interested in your recommendations to stay motivated. I was just given notice yesterday evening that I have to move out by the end of February. Mmmhm. I had been looking and applying for jobs to get out of a miserable and boring situation, that leaves me looking forward to the perk of discounted parking as my sense of satisfaction at the end of the day.

  3. Well done on becoming an ex-smoker! I quit three years ago after 50+ years of two packs a day.
    It isn’t easy but it CAN be done and, as a result, I no longer have any credit card debts either.
    Keep on keeping on with your manifesting.
