It’s that time of year again — when we pledge to do any number of things, often appearance related, differently than we did over the last 12 months.
If you’re among the nearly half of Americans who make New Year’s resolutions each year (more than 51% of Canadians according to Virgin Mobile Canada), you may be disappointed. Of those who “resolve to change….(fill in the blank)….,” only 8% are likely to succeed, says a study by the University of Scranton. That equals about 160 million unhappy people come February!
Maybe there’s another way. Actually, I believe there is. Though most of us learned to set New Year goals surrounded by or rooted in negative motivation, my friend Mary J. Lore, an expert on thought management, teaches how to establish inspired resolutions in her “Managing Thought” blog. Take a peek if you’d like to do it differently this year.
If your inspired goals involve saving the planet or achieving world peace, I support you with my own intentions and meditations, since I personally hope for the health of both. If some of your goals are on a more-personal level, say, ridding your closet of unflattering garment clutter, or wearing only clothes that allow you to feel joyful, I can help in a more active role. I’d be honored to do so, in fact.
Whatever your focus in 2013, may I wish you abundant success, health, prosperity, and peace in your heart. Here’s to fabulous New Year for all!
P.S. On the note of those personal wardrobe and appearance goals, I present to you: IMAGE ON A DIME – 2013. Details follow in my next blog post. Meanwhile, visit here for registration info.
