Resolving to Succeed in the New Year? Help is Here!

“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”

Albert Einstein

How many times have you set goals or resolutions for the New Year and not followed through to success? How many times have you succeeded?

My hope for you is that you succeeded more often than not. The trouble often encountered is sustaining the success you achieve.  Studies have shown that it takes anywhere from 21 to 90 days to create a new habit.  Depending on how long the old behavior has been ingrained in your mind and lifestyle, it may take even longer.  One thing is certain, however, it always takes a firm heart-felt decision on your part to see you through to the success you desire.

Ask yourself these questions before you begin:

  • What do I really want?
  • Why do I want it?
  • How will I feel when I get it?

Once you are very clear on your what, why and the feeling of having it, you are ready to move forward. Build a plan of action and stick with it.  Get help from a “buddy” or a coach to keep you on track.

Next, think of your life as a movie. How many roles have you played so far in this movie called your life?  By roles I mean jobs, careers, relationships, hobbies, accomplishments, etc. – essentially anything in which you are or were able to place an “I am” in front of it.

Now think of this new resolution as a new role in your life. Act as if you are preparing for that new role in your life as an actor does.  They gain or loose weight; they get in shape; they learn a new language or skill; they speak to people who have already experienced this new role or the exact person they are about to portray.  In other words, they immerse themselves in the role as if it were their life.

Well guess what? This is your life.  Just because it’s only one aspect doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it all you’ve got.  Everything in life is temporary.  Why not make the changes as much fun as possible?

Sure actors may get millions of dollars for the roles they play, but that’s where your WHY comes in. What’s it worth to you to achieve this goal and succeed?  How will you feel if you don’t?

Only you can muster the energy and desire to create the results in your life that will make you feel the way you want to feel.

You deserve the best because you are the best. God does not create mistakes.  God creates opportunities for you to be the best you choose to be.

The choice is always yours. That’s why God gave you free will regardless of what appears to go on around you or in the world.  Focus and belief are your tickets to success.  Tap into your why, focus on the feeling of having it now, and keep moving forward to the role you choose for your life.

Make a list of all the successes you have experienced in your life and keep an ongoing journal of them. No matter how small, every movement forward toward your goals is a success – especially if it makes you feel good about yourself.

To your fabulous life!

Enjoy a blessed and joyful New Year,

Cheryl

When God Holds Your Hand

Have you ever doubted that God or a power bigger than you “had your back”? In case you have, this story will remind you to notice the little signs that divine energy is always with you.

If you’re familiar with my work, website or blogs, you already know that I am a very spiritual person. You may also know that I have a purpose that is quite big – at least in my estimation. However, that’s just when I’m feeling small or outnumbered and focus on fear rather than the magic and miracles all around me or the growing number of like-minded people in the world.

I currently have a part-time job as a waitress while I work on my business and a new book. Since I believe everything is a gift and an opportunity, I was gifted with an experience recently that touched my heart and reminded me why my purpose is so important.

A table of five adults and one very young boy were in my section at the restaurant. The little boy kept trying to communicate with me as best he could and engage me in conversation. He was too young to speak words clearly, but he communicated with his smile and pure loving and joyful energy.

During one of my visits to check on his table, this child took my hand in his and held my hand as he began to interact with others at the table. He held my hand as if it was the most normal and natural thing for me to stand there by his side and hold hands. Tears just started to come to my eyes at the pure love and openness in this child. So I stood there as long as I could holding hands with this messenger of God with pure gratitude in my heart and Soul.

Those of you who have children and interact with them on a daily basis may not think this event too unusual or such a big deal. What makes this unique for me is that my purpose is to help children remember their connection to God, what they came here to do, and to help them in the most natural way possible. This includes a healthy and humane food supply.

So it is quite significant to me that this child whom I did not know and never met before held my hand and expected me to stay there with him while he was already in the midst of those who love him dearly.

It felt as if God was working through this child reminding me of my purpose and to stay the course no matter how challenging the road may appear to be.

During this holiday season, please take time to notice the signs God is sending your way. They are always there because we are always blessed and gifted with more love and grace than we typically notice.

Please share this post with those who may benefit and create a lovely and joyous holiday season.

Enjoy infinite blessings,
