TRANSMUTATION

By Randy Gage in Critical Thinking, Success, Prosperity.

Every New Years, I select a one-word theme to set my intention, guide me forward, and keep myself centered through the year. More than a resolution, it is an attitude, my attitude for what kind of year I am going to create.

 

Notice the language “create.” I’m not looking for what kind of year it is going to “be,” or the year that is going to “happen” to me, because that is the language of mediocrity, the language of victims. I’m talking about the year I’m going to create for myself.

 

Yes I will face setbacks, roadblocks, and challenges along the way. There will be all kinds of forces that seek to get me off course, beat me back, or cause me to give up. But I’ll never give up, because giving up is where victim-hood lives. And you can be a victor, or you can be a victim, but you can’t be both.

 

If you want 2015 to work out a certain way for you, you have to set that intention and take responsibility for it. Like me, you’ll face challenges. But those are simply tests from the universe – to see if you’re really serious about breaking out, or willing to settle for a life of mediocrity.

 

I know what you believe in, and what brings you to this page, so I’m betting on you. I think you’re going to have an amazing New Year, because you choose to.

 

Regular readers will remember that my word for 2014 was “ThermoFuckinNuclear.”   It certainly served we well, as 2014 truly was that for me. It was 365 days of challenge, opportunity and accelerated growth.

 

A big part of that growth was the development inherent in being on sabbatical, the most powerful learning and progression experience I have ever gone through. Now, as you read in a recent post, I’m ending my sabbatical and returning to my normal work. (If you can call this work I do normal.)

 

The sabbatical provided many lessons, some simple, some profound, that I would like to share with you in this blog over 2015. Hopefully they are lessons you can apply on your own path to enlightenment and prosperity. (As a result, you’ll see a lot more posts from me here. So I won’t be sending an e-zine every time I put up something, like I did with the postcards. You’ll need to check back here daily, or sign up in the “Stay Connected” box on the top right hand corner of this page.)

 

The word I’ve selected for 2015 is Transmutation. Of course transmutation was the term ancient alchemists used to describe the process of converting base substances like metal into more valuable ones like gold.  I feel like I have transformed myself in many ways and look forward to creating some serious transmutation in many things in 2015. Here’s to wishing you a year of transmutation as well.

 

One last thought on all this though…

 

To truly advance closer to your dreams, goals, and objectives in 2015 – you’re going to have to be willing to let go of who you were in 2014.

 

That person was good enough to get you where you got to last year. They’re not developed enough to take you where you want to go this year. So let that old you go, and step into the emerging greatness of the New You.

 

It’s the ultimate manifestation of the vacuum law of prosperity: Releasing what you want to let go of, creating space for what you want to attract.

 

Happy New Year. Happy New You!

 

– RG

 

P.S. Feel free to adopt one of my word themes for the New Year, or select one more appropriate for you. But whatever it is, I invite you to make a public declaration of it. Please share your word below, so we all can support your vision.

Hi,

it will take a lot of reminding myself of what i want for this year. Because in the past i didn't really knew what i wanted, and without effort good things would came to me, people i crossed path with, but my life changed so drastically that now i know what i want. its funny, sometimes life kicks you and nothing happens but when u start having another life depending on u it all changes. well, my son was that wake up call, realizing that i want him to have the best that i as a mother can be and as a result i became a better human being. i couldn't do it for myself, so he came out of the blue to enlighten my life. i will keep reading your thoughts.

My word is Charismatic. I am not big on NY Resolutions as I feel most people abandon them in week two of January. I consistently work on myself. This year, I did make one and that is that I want to become a people person. I am a Real Estate Broker and also part owner of a Medical Clinic. I made 6 figures doing real estate in 2014 of which I am very grateful. However, I had a lot of big potential deals in 2014 that I lost. In real estate, not every deal works out and in beautiful places like Miami, people often want to tour beautiful homes and condos with no intention of buying. That being said, I have to take partial responsibility for not getting some of these potential deals. I can go on thinking people only want to use me as their tour guide, I never get serious big clients, I don't have what it takes to do huge deals and should just be happy with what I am doing, etc. As RG says, you can be a Victim or you can be a Victor, but you can NEVER be both. I choose to be a Victor! I do have what it takes to do huge 7 and 8 digit deals. I can focus on the positive, at least some of these clients called me. 2014 was training ground. I am going to kill it in 2015. I know that everything comes from people. If you want more money and more business, it comes from other people. Therefore, I need to develop better people skills. I have been hurt, disappointed and rejected by many people and I see myself sabotaging potential business and personal relationships. I am taking responsibility on myself and have taken steps to conquer this. Earlier this week, I signed up for T Harv Ekers Life Makeover Coaching Program where they cover 8 areas of life, but you focus on 1 priority category. I am focusing on Relationships. My picked the word Charismatic as I want to let go and develop my personality. I know I have value to offer others and it is time to start showing it. I need to release the fear. This is going to be my main focus of 2015!

On New Year's eve, I join devotees to pray for those involved in the air disaster.  I had my New year resolution all written down 'bad habits, fears, challenges that impedes, blocks my path to what I want to do, my success are all in the trash !  Washed my hands and light up the candle to a new person that I want to be in 2015 ! The event was so meaningful that I thank myself for not staying at home, watch TV and wait for countdown !

M!OVETIVATION
It took me 5 years preparing for 2015. To be exact Saturday October 24 2015 at 12:00 - I am challenging 7 Billion people to be able to do 10 clean push ups (press ups). If you are in my city of Graz I call upon you to join us in setting a world record of 10000 people doing 10 clean push ups.
Did you know that over 97% of the world population cannot do 10 clean push ups. Can you? If you can then you have already discovered the laws of prosperity. Mr. Gage is the MASTER STUDENT on that STUDY.

M!OVETIVATION is my word period. :-)

Excellent post, very thought provoking Sir Randy! Happy New Year to you and our community here!

I was thinking of metamorphisis, or "transcendant", or even transformative..

Before I decide, how does one discern (discernment is critical) the difference between TRANSMUTATION and transformative? 

am wanting to articulate this appropriately.

Much gratitude RG!

@PeterGHorrill They're very similar, but of course transformative is describing the process: usually of transformation.  I chose transmutation because of the alchemy aspect; transformation the base into the valuable.  -RG

"New Era" is going to be the word I'm selecting for 2015. It is the beginging of a rebirth period for me as a individual, a year to start recreating myself and designing a conscious life. This is a new beginning! HAPPY NEW YEARS RANDY AND EVERYONE ELSE, BUON ANNO! wishing everyone a life of prosperity and abundance!

Happy New Year and Welcome Back! I declare my word to be "unstoppable" and my life "unrecognizable" for 2015. As I prepare and train for a 140km walk in the desert (from Al Ain to Abu Dhabi, UAE) I am reminded of my goals and crushing my limiting beliefs. I can do anything! The Universe conspires to my happiness. My body is ready to take on this challenge. For the rest of the year, I will challenge my body and my mind. Who knows, maybe I will surprise myself and elevate to another level of consciousness. There are many changes coming for me in 2015 and I will accept them in an "unstoppable" manner....and always with a smile. Thank you for who you are! love, Denise

Last year mine was Shibumi (learnt from you) and I was really setting the base for a good take off. It actually worked out so well in most areas of my life.

So beginning about this time and for the next 6 to 18 months, I am getting airborne! So my word is LAUNCHING!!

But one more important thing I have already picked from here, even with all the achievements of 2014 under my belt, I must be, and I am, letting go of who I was in order to create room for who I am going to be in 2015. Because who I was last year is not developed enough to take me where I am going to be this year!

Thanks Randy👍

I've been reading  your posts for the last 2 months now. Feel like "I'm home", everytime I'm here. Insanely true and happy to start this new year.

TRANSMUTATION, great word. Can't wait to see what is going to bring to you or, to be correct what YOU WILL BRING IN 2015. For me 2015 must be COMMITMENT. Due to various life lessons, I let myself go and I recently start a new life with my kids. I know what my call is, I know what I need to do, I just need to COMMIT to do it every day.Is going to be a lot of work but doable. Looking foward to enjoy every day along the way with great  friends like yourself. 

Peace and love, 

Daniela
