I don’t believe in New Year resolutions. I have always thought that you can make new choices in your life, any day of the year. You can make them having carefully considered what would be the best area to improve.
Most people come up with their resolutions on the fly, when somebody asks about them. This is usually at a party, when they are semi inebriated or when they get back to work and begin to contemplate another year of the same old same old.
It is no surprise that people fail to follow through on these spur of the moment ideas that they never made plans for nor committed to. This is why I gave them a wide berth during the holiday period and I am now writing this on January 18th.
I have read, watched and listened to a whole host of personal development books and programs, yet I have never reached stratospheric heights of success. What is the reason for this?
I have to ask myself if I have ever stuck with a program and really taken action on it. (The answer is yes, but that is a subject for another post). In the main, I have not tested out these programs rigorously enough to come to any valid conclusions.
That is about to change. A couple of months ago, I bought the Sedona Method Course. This is something I had heard of from several different sources and it was highly recommended by everyone. But so far, it has remained virtually untouched.
This is now the time for it. I have set goals for the year but I have been slow to get moving on them. I am hoping that the Sedona Method will help me to let go of what has been holding me back.
I am now setting, not a resolution but an intention, to work through this course diligently and see if I can get the benefits that it promises. I have decided not only to do the course, but to write about it regularly and publicly.
This is an extra incentive for me to complete the program and I also hope that it will be useful to others who are searching for something to give their lives a kick start. I am already feeling better just from making the plan.
