This year I will.

January 2nd, 2012

As you write 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 thinking, creating, growing, progressing, becoming more, succeeding.

Happy New Year!
