Personal New Year’s resolutions come and go every year. We have great intentions of making meaningful changes to our lives: get fit, eat healthy food, lose weight, be more open about our lives and who we are, pay more attention to our loved ones, develop better communication skills, develop self-love, be kinder to everyone around us, dive in the Maldives, give gratitude every day for all that is in our life, learn to cook, keep our house tidy, help our children with their homework, climb Kilimanjaro, get more sleep, enjoy work, be more joyful etc. etc. etc.
Every year there are promises we make to ourselves and those around us; scripts and notes are written. We smile from ear to ear with the great hope and enthusiasm about how wonderful our life is going to be when the changes are implemented.
Some of us succeed in achieving and implementing the changes we plan for in January of every year. Some of us give up on ourselves by mid-February. We are back living our habitual and mediocre lives; with all its good/bad behaviours, patterns and habits. Why is it that some of us succeed and others don’t? Which person are you?
All change requires a conscious decision, a practical plan, a schedule and resources to make it happen; it requires tenacity, inspiration, commitment, responsibility, discipline, self-love, support and most of all dedication on a daily basis.
When you succeed in achieving one of your January resolutions and bask in the glory of its benefits year on year, it gives you the impetus and stimulation to continue in this way for the rest of your life. You don’t wait for January; change, renewal, awakening, creativity and awareness become an integral part of your daily life.
Life is not always ‘easy’. Change is not always ‘easy’. In the beginning it’s hard work to get up each day and be dedicated to being a better person for you and those around you; to stick to a healthy eating and drinking plan, to get at least 30 minutes of exercise in every day, to stick to a financial budget that will get you to a place of less anxiety and more control over the quality of your life, to calm your mind for 10 minutes at various times during the day, to see the good in all those around you including yourself every day, to not shout at your children, partner, colleague or staff, to not roll down your car window and scream at the ‘stupid person’ who crossed into your lane without indicating, to manage the ‘monkey mind chatter’ that does nothing to add to the quality of your life, to be aware of your moods and how they affect those around you, to make time for you and those you love at various times during the week, to walk the dog, to visit your family and friends, to make time to read, to watch a movie or a game on your own, with family or friends, to study, to walk etc. etc. etc.
We are fragile, complex and unfathomable humans at times. Understanding how I have become the person I am helps me to make the changes I want to make and know I can make. I can then, walk a journey I have planned and chosen, rather than reacting to life on a daily basis.
In this time of immense change everyone in all walks of life want to find their way forward with enthusiasm and inspiration that gives purpose and meaning to their lives: in the work place, in the home, in the community, in the country and the world as we know it. All change starts with the individual and together we can begin to find some security in our minds bodies and spirits in 2013 .
That process of reacting to life as you experience it without a compass or plan works for a few. Most of us have arrived at a place in our lives where the rehearsal is over and we don’t want to repeat behaviours, actions, dreams, thoughts and habits than no longer serve the life we want to live.
The Possible Self programs and workshops are available to you to make a complete audit of your life through the creation of your own ‘Personal Tree of Life’ from birth to now. You get to see the events, people and experiences that have shaped, nourished and guided your life to-date, good and bad. You get to explore the landscape of your mind, body and spirit from the past and in the present. Once you see your life charted in front of you, you realize that a holistic plan is the only way forward. You cannot separate physical health from emotional well-being and visa versa. You cannot learn to take care of others if you don’t take care of yourself. Awareness and acceptance of what is happening in your life is the first step to making plans for change.
Once you have a practical plan for all areas of your life with realistic schedules, identified resources and supports for the next few years, you become more motivated and inspired to succeed. Day by day, week by week, month by month and year by year takes you to where and how you want to be in your life. Change and personal growth is a continuous process; it’s life long learning, experiencing and enjoying life in the ‘now’. It’s your life. You are the only one who can come to understand it and fix it, in the way that you want it to live it. The Possible Self programs facilitates and celebrates that process with you.
The process for individuals is much the same as for business’s. Management and workers create their ‘Companies Tree of Life’ based on its past, where they are now and where they want to take it.
