Why Resolutions Matter
So many of us hate the idea of New Year's resolutions. In fact I know many people who simply will not even consider one.
Resolution : A firm decision to do or not to do something (Google definition)
If you are conscious & tapping your miracle life resolutions are a must. Sorry not sorry to tell you that in order to be awake you need to resolve.
Now there is no rule stating it has to begin on January 1st with the New Year, but it certainly helps to use this time to reflect & resolve for the coming year. My thoughts are why not use the New Year? I also do it quarterly using the New Year for my big dreams & ideas to begin.
Just to give you an example of resolutions I have made & successfully done whose idea's were decided with the New Year yet had the sentiment to be done before the year is out:
- Quit Smoking Cigs
- Gave up Drinking Alcohol
- Selling all my Possessions
- Touring the USA as PaleoBOSS Lady
- Moving to California from the East Coast
- Ending Toxic Relationships
- Becoming a Wahls Warrior
- Yoga Every Damn Day
- Becoming Self Empowered Regarding Movement
- Whole 30 Challenges
- Whole Life Challenges
- Following my Circadian Rhythm
All of these things are HUGE changes in my life & have 100% contributed to the miracle known as PaleoBOSS Lady.
Each step was a very, very conscious act that took hard work & mental preparedness to make happen.
This gal cannot simply wake up & decide to do something. I have to prepare myself mentally 1st and foremost. The mental game is the only game that matters when you are trying to live your best life. I personally have to play mental chess for quite a long time to decide what I am going to work on.
I never, ever like to set myself up for failure. Once I commit to something I do it knowing I am ready to make shit happen.
I have already tried to anticipate any obstacles that may appear & how to navigate them. That is what I call mental chess. Asking and answering questions before they happen.
If I do this what could happen? What might it effect? How will I handle it?
Having conversations with yourself need to be honest & done over time. You do not simply wake up one day deciding & BAM it happens. Sure there are exceptions to the rule, but they are not the norm. Most of us need reflection time to resolve what will constitute our best life. Most of us need time to consider the desired outcome & what it will take to get to our chosen BAM.
Nothing worth anything is easy. In fact the greatest rewards come from when we are most uncomfortable. Resolutions are usually uncomfortable idea's that lead to an unknown territory.
I encourage all of you to begin NOW asking & answering your best life questions. Decide the New Year will bring a starting point knowing that in 365 days you will have mastered your chosen idea's to deliver a better life energy you.
Do not let this season of rebirth seem like a season of depriving. Instead I encourage you all to view it as a reinvention of your spirit that reflects the best you to date.
Go ahead. I believe in you. I wish you all the joy resolutions bring so that you too can up your volume to miracle status.
