A Resolution Method That Works
By Nisandeh Neta
At the end of each year, it is traditional to make a New Year's Resolution. With such "agreements", we commit ourselves to resolving personal issues, yet more often than not, fail to keep these commitments.
The concept in itself is a good one: to make an assessment of our lives, to contemplate what we wish to modify during the following twelve months, and then making a commitment to that change. What therefore, can we do to enhance the probability of successful attainment of our resolutions?
Although it seems a complex and mystifying issue, 'consciously creating' involves simple tools and techniques that do not require your belief or understanding in order for them to work for you.
The following are a few of the main points you need to remember in order to manifest successfully, what your heart desires:
- Commit your resolutions to paper. Contemplation, in itself is not enough.
- Keep your list short. A list of 10 resolutions is big enough to create a 'critical mass' of energy through which to 'get your message across' and is short enough to be remembered and therefore practical.
- Keep your resolutions simple, clear and detailed. Instead of "I make a lot of money" use "I earn xxx during 2003"
- Create a clear picture of your resolutions in present time as if they were already realized. Involve all your senses in this picture - see it, smell it, touch it... Bring to the picture positive emotions such as excitement, joy and fun.
- Repeat the thought and visualization process of your resolutions twice a day. It takes about 20-25 minutes a day, and is worth the investment of time.
- Communicate your resolutions to others. In this way you strengthen your commitment, creating for yourself a support group.
- Make a step every day towards realizing your resolutions, no matter how small. This step can even be of a mental nature. However, a daily step towards each resolution is going to make realization faster than you can imagine.
- Acknowledge yourself for any step you complete on the way to realizing your resolution.
- When one of your resolutions is realized ensure that you celebrate the personal success and treat yourself.
- After realizing any of your resolutions, cross it off your list and replace it with another. Maintain your list of 10 resolutions, throughout the year, thus keeping them alive.
REMEMBER: A fish is born to swim, a bird is born to fly and a human being is born to create.
