As this year comes to a close, you will likely find yourself reflecting on your accomplishments and how you want to move forward in the next year.
For a lot of people, it is traditional to create New Year's Resolutions. But only 9% to 12% of people feel they are successful in sticking to them.
Fortunately, you know about the Law of Attraction and how to utilize energy work to your advantage. Here are 3 additional tips to help you get into proper alignment and successfully achieve your New Year's Resolutions!
1) Create Goals That Feel Reasonably Achievable to You
A lot of resolutions go something like this:
"I want to go to the gym 5 days a week, eat a paleo/vegan/keto diet, quit smoking, quit drinking, lose 20 pounds, save 50% of my income, and get a boyfriend/girlfriend. "
That's a lot of resolutions, and for most people doing all of that at once is too far of a reach from their current vibrational standpoint. They don't internally believe that they can do it all, so it manifests as overwhelm and... well, not achieving those goals.
So instead, a better place to start is to pick one of two goals that feel reasonably achievable to you and tone them down a bit. Perhaps you can exercise from home twice a week, eat one paleo meal a day, reduce the number or cigarettes you smoke in a day by one, or try going on a date twice a month.
We like to try to "quantum leap" from where we currently are to our idealized selves, but for most people it takes a bit of time to get to that idealized version. Taking small actions that feel achievable from where you currently are (you'll feel "yes, I can do that" within yourself) is a much easier way of getting to where you want to go than pressuring yourself to do everything at once and then beating yourself up when you fail.
2) Make Your Goals about Enjoying the Process, Not Just the End Result
One of the major epiphanies I had in my life came from a frozen bag of mixed vegetables. I was trying to eat healthier, so I decided to add some veggies as a side dish to my dinner.
I liked every vegetable that the mixed bag contained - except for the squash. I HATE squash. So when I heated up the bag of veggies, I thought to myself, "okay, I'll eat all the squash first since I really don't like it and then I'll eat all the veggies I do like afterwards as a reward".
Halfway through eating the squash however, I thought to myself, "what am I doing? I don't LIKE squash - I can just throw it out and eat the other veggies." So I tossed the squash.
And guess what? Once I stopped eating the squash, it became WAY easier to eat all the other veggies. Eating vegetables became enjoyable because I was only eating vegetables that I liked!
Likewise, when you're creating a resolution for yourself, choose a goal in which you will enjoy the process of working on that goal, instead of only focusing on the end result.
Want to exercise more but hate running? Try dancing or ice skating! Want to lose weight? Create a list of healthy recipes that you love eating and replace your less healthy meals with them.
Change doesn't have to be super painful - the belief that it must be painful IS a limiting belief. By creating resolutions that are a joy to do, you'll find it much easier to complete them - and enjoy life more on a daily basis.
3) Figure Out What You REALLY Want
Finally, (I would be a bad Law of Attraction coach if I failed to mention this last point) is the goal that you have set for yourself what you REALLY want?
A lot of times, you end up making goals for yourself because you think it is what you should do rather than what you really desire. Or you set a goal because you think it is the only way to achieve what it is that you really desire.
Let's say you want to set a New Year's resolution to go to the gym 5 days a week. Ask yourself, why do I want to set this goal?
Well, you may say to yourself, it's because I want to get super fit. So why do you want to get super fit?
Well, if I get super fit, then ladies will find me attractive. I'll feel good about myself.
So your end goal is to feel good about yourself (ultimately, all goals are about feeling better). Does feeling good about yourself have to strictly come from going to the gym 5 days a week, or can you allow yourself to feel good about yourself now?
Doing an external action so you can feel internally good about yourself is the societal norm, but it is a lot easier to focus on feeling internally good first before doing the external action. That's what Law of Attraction is about at its core: changing the internal belief so your external reality shifts.
Now it doesn't mean that you no longer do ANYTHING - it just makes it a lot easier and fun to do things that make you feel good about yourself.
Going back to the example, deciding to feel good on the inside first may result in you feeling inspired to go to the gym 5 days a week. But it could also manifest as something else. Perhaps you get into biking or find an online Zumba class.
It doesn't really matter how feeling good about yourself manifests externally - that's what teachers mean when they say "let go of the how". With any of the resolutions you want to set for the year, ask yourself why you want to achieve them, and focus on aligning with the emotional feeling your would have about yourself by achieving your resolutions, and see if an easier or more fun approach to your goals manifests itself for you.
