So what is your intention for the New Year? I lead an introductory session for the Pursuit of Excellence the other night and wrapped it around that question. What do you want to create in 2011? This is the only year you have, what will you do with it to make your dreams come true?
One of the participants was quite drawn to that statement and commented that it was a very powerful idea that this is the only year I have. I thought about it myself and agreed and yet, really, what other years do you have?
Most of us live our life thinking that we will have plenty of time to create a warm and loving relationship, to get healthy, to lose weight to create the financial abundance and truly live their dreams. How many of us actually do that for ourselves?
I mentioned in a previous post that we tend to focus on being loving and full of goodwill during Christmas and then forget all about it for the rest of the year. Then we wonder why our lives feel empty; devoid of love, joy and money.
What tends to happen is that when January comes – and the credit card bills – we fret and stress over the money we have spent, feel resentful of the people we have spent it on and close our hearts to the joy we thought we'd experience through our generosity.
So what is the antidote to the January hangover? Here's a thought; with every bill you pay and every cheque you write – let it go with love and trust that what has come to you, will come to you again. Money and love are not finite – they are infinite expressions of energy. Give one and the other one trots right behind it. It's up to you how much of each you feel you deserve.
Holding the vision for you to have an abundance of both in 2011.
