Speaking of goals, we seem to have many; improved fitness, weight loss, new / better job, more time with family, completing a course or degree, etc. Goals are great and an important piece of the puzzle for fulfilled life. Without goals to help drive our energy and attention, we easily become aimless. Making sure our goals are written down and SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely) are also important in determining their success.
Another key aspect of success is embodiment. In order to drive efficient change, we must connect to the feeling sense of our desired outcome. For instance, what will we look and feel like when we release those extra 15 pounds? How will our body move differently? What emotions will dominate our state of being? What clothes will we wear and how will they feel against our skin? How high will our energy be and what will be our outlook on life? All of these questions bring us to an embodied state of being where we resonate fully now with a future state. We activate all the senses to bring us to a state of completion even before we've begun. In our mind and feeling sense we are already 15 pounds lighter. When we live from this place, of embodying our success in this present moment, success show up with greater ease, joy, and love.
As you seek to create lasting change this year, keep stopping along the way to ask yourself if your change actions are self-proclaimed to-do's or reflect an authentic and desired way of being. Do you feel obligated and restricted by your program / action steps or excited and energized? If it's the former, return back to the feeling sense and essence of why you desire this change. Reconnect with the energies of your heart's calling and why you are on this journey to begin with. Get back to the root of desired change so that you live your change with heart-felt purpose.
Sometimes we get so driven to task our life, to have it show up in a certain way in a certain amount of time, that we forget our humanity and what that means. Living a human life is not a linear process. We are complicated, multi-dimensional beings with many different streams of consciousness. Be patient, kind, loving, and diligent in your change process. It is a process and success comes when we can celebrate ourselves and our new beginning in every moment. So Happy New Moment!! Enjoy them all.
