Resolutions Work Better with Affirmations

This is the time when resolutions are made for the New Year. A resolution is a statement articulating an inner determination. To “resolve” to carry out something is directly connected to your will.

The reason most people do not keep their New Year resolutions is because they expressed them from their mind and not their will.

To know what to do is not the same as determining to do what you know.

Such determination comes from the heart.

In the Barriers to Success workshop, we emphasize creating personal affirmations. We have successfully coached many in this technique. It works because it shifts your mind to align with your heart.

To fulfill your New Year’s resolution, create affirmations that describe feelings of successfully fulfilling that resolution. For instance many resolve to loss weight such as, “I am going to lose 25 pounds this year.” Examples of affirmations to help this goal:

  • I am abundant with good health.
  • I love how I feel about who I am.
  • I look good in my clothes.

This thinking aligns our actions to meet the goal. You begin making healthy choices to eat because you daily remind yourself you are abundant in good health. You choose clothes you look good in now and you feel good about who are in the moment.

This transformation is both immediate and long-term. It may take time to actually lose that weight, but you immediately begin to fulfill your Resolution.

May you be blessed with prosperity and abundance in 2017.
