Frankly, I think New Year Resolutions are BS. They’re typically born from a place of failure, hurt, and self-abuse. And they set you up for more of the same.
I like to stack the deck for absolute success. The first step is to failure-proof your intention for the new year.
Here’s what I do…
Instead of resolutions I set a THEME for the year.
Setting a theme is like choosing a flavor for the year. A context. What the year will be about. It’s not a fixing thing. It’s a growing thing.
My theme often grows out of what I want to learn and experience this year. I also tune into what’s ready to happen. And EVERYTHING gets accomplished. It just happens. Every year. Without forcing or failure.
Unlike goals, which work best when they’re super specific, a Theme should be general, even vague.
Leave room to be surprised by what shows up and how the theme reveals itself.
In my experience, the surprises are much better than anything I imagined for myself. For example, last year my theme was “Foundation Building.”
I had no idea that would mean I would find–and buy–my dream house (at below my budget), set up house with my husband, and attract my superstar business support team.
Today I cracked open a new copy of my Financial Alchemy workbook for 2016, and went through my theme creation exercise (page 43).
==> This year my theme is Resonating Connection.
“What does that mean?” you may ask.
1) My first priority this year connection. Connection to this community. Connection to my most authentic self. Connection to Source. And to be a connector, a “wisdom hub.” (That’s why I’ll be starting my weekly Morgana Radio show on January 1st.)
2) That resonating piece is super important. I’m only interested in connections that FEEL GOOD. And I want those good connections to ripple out into the world and positively impact as many living beings as possible. Listening for resonance is my way of encouraging you, me, and all of us to say, “No!” to what isn’t a good match, and move on. How liberating does that feel?
