The New Year is upon us… Welcome to 2016! Many people are now reflecting on what transpired in the previous year while setting new goals for the year at hand.
This year I’ve decided to take a much different approach. I’ve decided to do without goals, resolutions or to-do lists. Although there is nothing wrong with creating lists, goals and resolutions, I’ve decided to follow a different road.
“The basis of your life is absolute freedom, the goal is joy, and the result of that perfect combination is motion forward, or growth.”
More than any year before, this year, I’ve decided to focus my attention and energy on the things that lift me up and make me feel great! I will do my best to focus on my inner energy and inner being. I will do my best to serve in a way that is aligned with freedom, joy and happiness, which will lead me to growth and prosperity.
I encourage you to do away with doing what is right or wrong, or what one should do versus not. Instead focus on doing what feels better, aligns with your happiness and gets you closer to your desires!
If you do what serves and honors yourself, you will ultimately have a better sense of Self. Once your inner state is great, your energy will attract that same energy of joy and happiness. That will then result in you moving forward or being open to achieving the things you desire. This very way of thinking can be used both in your personal life and in business. What you give attention to will ultimately give you a certain flow. Flow leads to momentum towards whatever it is you are looking to achieve. Be mindful, stop and focus on the things you give attention to, they may be the root of your joy or the fuel of your pain. Either way, know that you are in control.
Try the following exercise right now wherever you’re reading this blog. My goal of this exercise is to have you stop and pay attention to how you feel. How you feel inside right now is what you’ll see in your life tomorrow; joy or pain.
Live life powerfully and live a life you love!
