I know we’re in the midst of the holiday season, but I want you to start thinking about 2020, which is only weeks away, I want to add! My intention is to simply plant a seed in the hopes of jump-starting your thinking about this new cycle you’ll soon be undertaking. I want you to be prepared for this shift! New beginnings are exciting, and all the more this year as I have this feeling that you (someone who deserves every happiness) are going to find yourself on the road to success!
First, my hope is that you can be cognisant of the positive energy surrounding you now as opposed to just thinking about a time in your future. While you might only be able to catch glimpses of it at the moment, just know that it is there supporting you. And I can assure you that it will grow stronger and stronger as we focus on it in our work together.
I want you to embrace this thought: Happiness is a journey, not a destination. Let’s just think about that idea for a moment. We’re taught that getting the desired job, relationship, house, or some other goal will make us happy. However, that is not always the case! Surprisingly, once a dream is achieved, the happiness we so longed for becomes fleeting at best, and then we can find ourselves thinking, “Is that it?” This type of thinking doesn’t do us any good! How many times have we read stories about the rich and famous, people who have money galore and every material desire, but are still lacking in happiness.
My answer to this predicament is to refrain from focusing solely on that dangling carrot or heartfelt desire that drives us, and put our attention instead on the journey or process of trying to obtain our desired goal.
If you are able to do this, you are saying “Yes!” to the happiness that is present in your life now, rather than pining for some period in the near or far future when you ideally will have achieved that desired goal. By focusing on the here and now, you are expanding the positive energy around you and, like a magnet, will begin attracting people, situations and even material wealth right to your side.
When you have a happy and positive frame of mind, you set in motion opportunities that will enable you to achieve the things you want most of all. This is my goal for you in the New Year!ew Year Goal
“To do just the opposite is also a form of imitation.”
Author, Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
Your action for today is to see if you are doing something the opposite way from someone in your family. See if the results are working in your favor.
Have an extraordinary day!
