Ahead of the game.

December 30th, 2011

This is the weekend of all weekends to feel good. A time to celebrate a Saturday night that will lead from one year to the next.  A time to look forward.  To think about how you want and expect things to be for you.  To think progress and sense accomplishment. And no matter how you choose to ring in the New Year,  the feelings of new beginnings do bubble up.

As you think about writing down the things you want to do in 2012, I hope you’ll includes also feelings and attitudes. Here are some suggestions* for your life-in-progress list:

1.  I will approve of myself, my characteristics, my abilities, my tendencies, and my likes and dislikes, realizing that these form my unique individuality. I have them for a reason.
2.  I will approve of and rejoice in my accomplishments, and I will be as vigorous in listing these – and as rigorous in remembering them – as I have ever been in remembering and enumerating my failures or lacks of accomplishment.
3.  I will remember the tremendous energy and potential that lies within me to create that which I can imagine for myself.
4.  I will realize that my professional future is a probability. In terms of everyday experiences, nothing exists there yet. It is virgin territory, planted by my feelings and thoughts in the present. Therefore I will plant accomplishments and successes, and I will do this by focusing on how I want and expect the future to be for me.

Whether it’s a new year, a new month, a new week, or a new day, you get to choose what you’ll be focused on. So, please, have some fun this weekend thinking, creating, growing, progressing, becoming more, succeeding.

Happy New Year!
