Be firm in your purpose.

December 28th, 2012

This is the New Year’s post that I find worthy of annual restatement. Because as definite as you are about what you want to achieve in 2013, it’s even more important to be firm in your purpose to feel good. How you feel is the true measurement of your energy. As you think, so you feel.

So as you write down in the coming days what it is you want to accomplish over the next year, please add these few suggestions* of focused feelings and attitudes to your work-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 today, next week or next month, you get to choose what you’ll be focused on. So think big and feel good in the expectation of it. Your time to create a life of personal and professional freedom, growth and happiness starts right now. Happy New Year!
