At the beginning of a new year we have the tendency to set goals. But what we fail to understand is, that everyday, week, month, year, etc. we should set goals and not just at the beginning of a new year. We should start this by making a commitment to ourselves. Commit to achieving our goals. This is because fulfilling promises (honouring commitments) will help us live in integrity.
If there are setbacks, on the way to our goals, don’t panic! Don’t give up! Just recommit! There is no limit on the number of times we can recommit. All we need to remember is the Universe will always help us fulfill sincere promises.
We know we can accomplish whatever we put our minds and hearts to do, because we have the Power within us. When we are divinely inspired, we find strength and resolve to accomplish our intentions, our goals.
Let us now envision the result we want and imagine the feeling of having it. Our faith and confidence will grow with each goal we achieve. Commit!
The way you look at life is an indicator of your expectations, it is based on what you have been taught you’re worthy of and capable of achieving. These expectations come from external influences such as family, community and institutions and the internal influence of your ego. These sources of your expectations are largely based on the beliefs of limitation, scarcity and pessimism about what is possible for you. If these beliefs are the basis for how you look at life then this perception of the world is what you expect for yourself. Attracting abundance, prosperity and success from these limiting viewpoints is an impossibility.
Take an inventory of how you look at the world, asking yourself how much of your life energy is focused on explaining away potentially optimistic viewpoints by preferring to see inequities and inconsistencies in the abundance-for-all philosophy?
Can you change the way you look at things? Can you see potential for prosperity where you’ve always seen scarcity? Can you change what is by simply changing the way you see it? YES YOU CAN!!!
– Excerpts from “The Power of Intention”, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
Here is something worth thinking about:
“The more you try to protect, defend, prove or explain yourself, the farther you drift from authentic confidence. If someone does not want to accept you, no sales job is sufficient, and if someone accepts you, no sales job is necessary. Likewise, if someone wants to keep you guilty, no apology is acceptable, and if someone is willing to love you, no apology is necessary.”
We need to be true to ourselves, we need to love and accept ourselves. The quickier we learn this, the happier we will be. Stop trying to get people to see things your way, if what you are doing truly please you and makes you genuinely happy, then keep doing it. The people who around will benefit from a happier you, if they don’t, then they will leave as they should:-).
“Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony“….. Gandhi
Research has shown that kindness has a positive effect on the immune system and in the increase production of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is a naturally occurring substance in the body that makes us feel more comfortable, peaceful and blissful.
So a simple act of kindness directed toward another improves the functioning immune system and stimulates the production of serotonin in both the recipient and extender of the kindness. Even more amazing is that persons witnessing the act are also similar beneficiaries.
So imagine that, kindness extended, received and observed beneficially impacts the physical health and feelings of everyone involved!
So today let’s commit to at least one act of kindness
Our thoughts go out as energy waves and attract conditions and circumstances to us that have a similar energy frequency. Many people say, Well, if that’s true, why do I think about something and not get it? They might say, I think about a good and loving relationship, winning the lottery, and a slender, healthy body, but I’m not getting those things!
The answer is simple; there’s something inside that is in conflict with their desires.
You are the sum of all your life experiences. Old recordings stored in your subconscious may be keeping you from your actually believing you can have the relationship, the job, the winnings, or the healthy body you desire. They combine to nullify the energy that is going out to help you achieve your current desires.
The law of attraction is a wonderful law and it works for everyone, all the time. It attracts people, places, and things to help you fulfill your dreams. It also brings challenges and struggles.
To make the law of attraction work for you, you must pay attention to three things: your thoughts, your feelings, and the way you respond to opportunities.
We get what we think about, we get what we talk about, we get what we feel in our guts, whether it’s good or bad. Our life experiences are the result of whatever is going on in our minds or coming out of our mouths. Life does not happen to us, it happens through us.

It is the new year, so now’s a great time to:
1. Wipe the slate clean.
2. Focus upon what you really want.
3. Chart your course.
Well… only if you want to risk having to repeat these steps for the same wishes next year! Maybe this is splitting hairs, but here’s an adventurous alternative:
1. Give thanks that life is… just as it is (and that it’s been… just as it’s been). Because of it, you’re now “READY.”
2. Define what you want in terms of the end result. Don’t worry about the hows, or even the course. KNOW that what you want is ALREADY yours in spirit, by divine LAW, just focus on the certainty of this ownership, understand it, claim it, and “it will be on earth, as it is in heaven (spirit).”
3. LET THE UNIVERSE show you the way via your impulses and instincts that appear as you take inspired action. Don’t worry that your first steps seem silly or futile. And if you don’t know what to do, do anything! Go! Get busy! Do not insist on intermediary successes, only upon the end result.
2012 is going to be your year (it already is)!!
