Your 2013!

2013While Christmas holds the magic, New Years hold the promise. The promise of change, renewal, and reflection.

Out with the old, in with the new!

Resolutions are made with the best of intentions and they are at the top of everyone’s New Years list….well, it seems like everyone’s list but mine…I’m not a big fan of reserving resolutions for January 1st. As a free spirit with a fear of commitment, I’m more of a resolution-anytime-I-feel-the-need kind of gal. I tend to make a lot of resolutions a lot of the time.

Want to hear my secret to a successful resolution?

Before narrowing in on your resolution of choice, take a moment and fully absorb all that you have accomplished this year. I mean, REALLY take it all in.

Did I just stump you there?

It’s much easier to think about the many areas in which we can improve than it is to give ourselves credit where credit is due. Am I right? Doesn’t mean it’s mission impossible, it just means it can take a little time. No worries, you have my word, it’s time well spent.

Think about where you were last year, where you are now, what you have accomplished, and then consider where you’d like to see yourself next year. Consider every area of your life; relationships, financial, spiritual, work, health.

What’s important to you? Your answer holds the key to the whisper in your heart.

Here is my promise to you – When you follow your heart, you will never go wrong.

If you’re a fan of resolutions, make a resolution that resonates with your hearts desire.

Find a goal that excites you so much that it will challenge your every capacity to be and do your best

Don’t forget! Allow yourself to fall short of your goals every now and then. As human beings, it’s our nature to mess up. Do the best you can, and when you fall, learn, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and keep moving forward.

Mistakes are the stepping stones to success, they offer the precious gift of life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Be thankful for your mistakes and allow yourself to succeed sloppily.

Always remember, if you need a pick me up, my gift is to help you see yours. I’m always cheering you on!

This year is your year! In the words of my dear friend Temba Spirit, it’s time to reclaim your power!

Thank you for being a part of my 2012.

I Fully Embrace Your Awesomeness!

New Perspective, New Results

Brand New Year, brand new resolutions, same old outcome?

Are you setting yourself up for failure or success?

Let’s face it; at the best of times, we are our own worst critics. When we find ourselves genuinely looking to change, we’re even harder on ourselves; judging, insulting, discouraging….any of this sounding familiar? Need a different perspective?

“When you want something you’ve never had, you’ve got to do something you’ve never done.”

Don’t underestimate the power of clarity. When you are clear, you will invevitably begin to see results.

What exactly is your goal? The more clear your answer to this question, the better your chances for success. Be specific and write it down. What does achieving your goal mean to you? How would it change your daily living? How will you know when you’ve reached your goal? Are there any measurable markers or checkpoints? What’s your plan of action? How long should it take before you can realistically expect to see results?

Everyday you are faced with countless decisions to make. When faced with a choice, consciously and consistently choose in favor of your desired outcome.

Cut yourself some slack, you’re human. There’s no escaping it. Accept it and embrace it. 

Change is a journey, allow yourself time to succeed.

So many people seem to be under the mistaken assumption that January 1st the sacred gateway to infinite possibilities. Why the prejudice against all the other dates?

If you slip up on January 3rd, January 4th is a surprisingly great date for wonderful new beginnings. In fact, if you slip up January 4th at 4:00, 5:00 is another great place to start 🙂 so try not to be so hard on yourself.

You have it in you to succeed. You have it in you to be all that you choose to be. You’ve got this! Just keep moving forward and don’t forget to …

Embrace your awesomeness!

It’s your turn – Got any successful resolution stories to share? What do you do to keep yourself on track?
