I want to wish you all a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR, one that is full of every blessing that the Universe can bestow upon you, and all for your Highest Good.
I also recognize that the world is in turmoil, and some of you may be feeling helpless and overwhelmed by it all. Perhaps 2007 will be just as challenging as 2006 turned out to be...if we do nothing. But you know we CAN do something positive and concrete about changing the energy in the world.
The I Ching, or Book of Changes, an ancient Chinese philosophy dating back 3,000 years, advises that we can change the world by beginning with ourselves. When you think about it, each time we change our own behavior, people around us have to respond differently. They (and we) can't keep doing the same dance because the rules have changed.
According to the I Ching behaviors that operate within a household shape its inhabitants; and what is learned in the home will transfer to the community, the state, and the world. So if you want to change the world, you have to begin with changing yourself.
Try extending this philosophy into your workplace as well. If you are unhappy with a situation there experiment with changing your behavior first, and see how your colleagues respond to you. I believe that you're going to be very pleasantly surprised. Let me know what happens.
NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS
When Michelangelo was asked how he carved the statue of David, he said:
“ I simply cut away everything that was not David."
At this time of year, many of us are thinking about making New Year's Resolutions to change things that haven't been working for us for in a long while. Have you made a list of the ways in which you’d like to change your behavior and the choices you make each day?
Make a commitment to the “New You” and the world will quickly start feeling quite different. You might need some help in staying motivated to manifest your dreams, so recruit a Success Team – a group of friends, family, or colleagues who can help you stay focused and accountable; and who will cheer you on towards your goal.
Work on an Action Plan - a road map for this new journey that you are about to take. Include a Timeline so that you know how long each part of the Plan will take to manifest; and when you will eventually reach your goal. Celebrate each successive step by giving yourself little rewards along the way. It will make the journey so much more fun, and will definitely keep you motivated!
