How Are Those New Years Resolutions Working Out For You?

Just think about one thing, that one reward, that one payoff and rather than try simply permit and allow.

First of all – for those of you that are still on track – congratulations and continued success. However the vast majority of you may still be struggling or possibly put things on the back burner or even worse – given up. Think of just one way your life would be different if you are finally able to put down the cigarettes or if you are able to maintain your weight loss regime.

The simple fact is – what you can conceive, you can achieve. Think about the outcome with respect to a time when you put your attitudes beliefs desires and expectation pointed in one direction. Chances are you are successful in your achievements and in your life. An interesting thought – winners are very rarely surprised when they win as losers are very rarely surprised when they lose. This is the universal law of expectation. A person can rationalize, minimize, justify, intellectualize, maximize and utilize all sorts of defense mechanisms to justify lack of success. These are however just the outer covering of what lies deeper and embedded in the subconscious mind. Self limiting beliefs, obstacles and barriers that are very much hidden to the conscious mind.

I’m reminded of the song The Wheel by The Grateful Dead

Round, round robin run round, got to get back to where you belong,
Little bit harder, just a little bit more,
A little bit further than you gone before.

The wheel is turning and you can’t slow down,
You can’t let go and you can’t hold on,
You can’t go back and you can’t stand still,
If the thunder don’t get you then the lightning will.

Small wheel turn by the fire and rod,
Big wheel turn by the grace of God,
Every time that wheel turn ‘round,
Bound to cover just a little more ground.

The wheel is turning and you can’t slow down,
You can’t let go and you can’t hold on,
You can’t go back and you can’t stand still,
If the thunder don’t get you then the lightning will.

Won’t you try just a little bit harder,
Couldn’t you try just a little bit more?
Won’t you try just a little bit harder,
Couldn’t you try just a little bit more?

 

Just think about one thing, that one reward, that one payoff and rather than try simply permit and allow. Now read the last stanza and replace the word try with the phrase permit and allow. There is no failure there’s only feedback. The only obstacles that are in your way of the ones that you put there yourself. The choice is up to you, the decision is your decision, the reward is your reward of a happy and healthy life. Make a list of the resources that are available to you. You would not have read this blog to this point if there was not a part of you that was not only curious but serious about success. Be determined now, believe in yourself now, think about yourself breathing clearer, looking better, and feeling younger. The choice is yours – the time is now. The irony is that you not only probably but rather definitely already know what you need to be doing to live a happier healthier life – to be a happier healthier person – NOW. Therefore today give yourself permission to start the year over, give yourself permission today "to make a resolution" for success, for happiness, for life.
