Make Dreams, not Resolutions



New Year’s Resolutions are an irritant for most people. The promises you make to yourself to do this or that, exercise more, be a better person, not fight with your parents, etc, just falls flat very quickly, then you feel bad about yourself when it does!

So instead try Dreaming … envisioning yourself having what you want in life.  Dreaming is important – to be very clear on what it is you want to see in your life, and believe it and feel it.

When you spend quiet time feeling it and believing it, this creates an energetic resonance within and around you.  Each thought creates a chemical. Thinking creates feelings. Your body is a servant to your thinking.  Thinking creates the state of being. All of this energy culminates into creating the future that you desire.

Here’s what to do:

1)  Think about what you want in 2012 in these areas (or make up your own subjects):

  • your personal life
  • your financial life
  • your work life
  • your spiritual life

2)  Write down your answer as if it has already happened and how you ‘felt’ when it happened.  For example:  “My circle of friends shifted so I am now surrounded by those who really care about me and have the same interests I do.  I am so much happier now that old friendships that were not working for me anymore are now gone from my life.”

3)  Feel and believe what you wrote.  Spend a few minutes every day feeling and believing your dream.  Really ‘mentally rehearse’ your dreams by feeling it in your body as if they have already happened.

Create this energetic mind/body connection to make your dreams come true.

Thank you for reading my blog and inspiring me. I wish you a very Happy New Year filled with good health, joy and inspiration.

  1. Hi Wendy,
    Thank you very much for this article. I’ve forwarded this to my friends (indicating the reference, of course) and most of them responded positively. Wish you all the best of “dreams” in 2012!

  2. The way we measure time with calendars and clocks is entirely arbitrary. We could have divided the day into any number of units and sub-units, as well as the year. As such the only significance New Years has is what we create for it. Any other day of the year could be just as significant if we believed it to be so. Given that, I think it is best to just see yourself and your life circumstance as being in a continual process of transformation. Every day holds the potential to bring you closer to the goals you have set for yourself. I agree that setting goals, writing them down and believing in them will make them more likely to happen because it primes your mind to see opportunities and possibilities. In addition to thinking and believing, I think it is also important to act. Ask yourself what you can do to bring yourself closer to your goals and do it.
