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!
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.
