The dawning of a new year is naturally an ideal time to take stock, make plans and think about the goals we want to achieve and changes we want to make in the year ahead. But experience tells us that the majority of New Year resolutions fall by the wayside, and by February most of us will be back to square one. So if you fancy doing things a bit differently this year — here’s another approach:
Imagine that it’s the end of 2015 and you’re sitting down to reflect on the successes and achievements of the year just passed. Take a sheet of paper and write 2015 Was A Great Year for Me Because … at the top. Then make a list of all the things you achieved and what it was that made it such a great year. Imagining that your successes have already happened is a really powerful way to set your intentions for the year and should leave you feeling inspired, energised and motivated. That’s a lot better than the sinking feeling that often accompanies setting New Year’s Resolutions!
