There is opportunity now for new beginning. Many talk about it being of no use to set goals and make resolutions because they just don’t keep them. They start out with all this energy of renewal and then loose the drive.
Resolutions and setting goals are essential to us if we are to keep learning and growing and not just making do and getting on with life in a half-hearted way.
Life is precious and we are here to learn and grow – to discover new territories, new abilities, skills, gifts, solutions, ways of seeing and understanding.
We all have patterns that are not serving us, habits that keep us stuck, old beliefs that limit us.
We all need to connect with the Christopher Columbus within and set forth to discover the greatness within. As you do this you will increase your energies, your strength, your understanding, your vision.
It’s time to do a clear out of all the old stuff that’s clogging up your energies and your space. It’s time to get clear about what is important to you, what’s stopping you and what you are willing to do to live your life more fully.
It takes courage to get out of your comfort zone and stretch yourself, but, when you do, life becomes so much more interesting. Now you are living – aware of that mighty spirit within you. Now you are beginning to get a sense of the power in you to take positive, intelligent action, to create, to get involved, to make changes.
Do we really believe we are here to just put up with the way things are; to keep creating more fear, sickness, lack and war; to keep feeling helpless, powerless, pushed around by life?
Things will change when the blaming and complaining stop and we stop allowing fear to rule and guide us. It is time to work together, let go of the old and create the new.
Setting goals to give up smoking, drinking sweet fizzy drinks, eating sugar in all its various guises, reduce or give up alcohol and coffee, are essential to your health and well-being.
Other goals might be to drink more water, exercise more, spend less time in front of the TV and/or playing games, get involved in helping build community, get up earlier, go to bed earlier, include meditation and journaling in your daily routine, take action on something that is holding you stuck, learn new skills, develop new interests.
Now, sure you might find you give up or fall down on your efforts but the key is to pick yourself up and start over – never give up.
This is so important – never give up, never give into defeat. If we are to move forward we must develop discipline and staying power. We must persist. These are not drudgery – these are qualities that have you at the helm of your ship, clear on your direction rather than tossed around by any squall or storm.
Don’t allow any excuses such as “I am not a disciplined sort of person”. This is a very limiting and disempowering label to put on yourself. Discipline is a quality we all need and one we must work at.
It is time to take courage, move forward, do your part. Your part is essential to the whole – no part is less or more important.
Every effort you make to change and improve you and your life, makes a difference to the whole.
