Most people are likely talking about their New Year’s Resolutions.
But if you know me, you know how I feel about those.
The momentum of doing it differently this year fades within 60 to 90 days and then you’re back to square one.
If you’re like many, you’re tired of the ground hog day life you keep living.
You made a little progress in your life and business but things still seem to look the same way they did last year.
Different faces, different places but same stuff.
You’ve heard the saying, “Same shit, different day.”
Are you living a “Same shit, different year?”
Well your future self (You 2.0) wanted me to give you this gift as you move into 2017 so that you can finally make peace with yourself and stop dragging WHAT WAS into your future again and again.
In the actual movie “Groundhog Day,” Bill Murray playing the infamous character Phil, wakes up day in and day out to the same experiences.
Long story short, Phil after many days of trying to kill himself, trying to make the female producer Rita fall in love with him and failing at attempt after attempt to make any real change that made it through to the next day…
He stops resisting.
He finally begins to live.
Having the luxury of being stuck in his own drama until he finally surrenders and chooses to live each day as a world unto itself he is transformed.
You’ve had this luxury and now it’s time to stop resisting WHAT IS and transform 2017 FOR REAL this time!
Here are 13 Things Your Future Self Wants You to Know In 2017
- You will fail sometimes and make mistakes and it’s OK.
If you never made mistakes you’d never learn how to do a thing better, easier, quicker OR never do the thing again…
There is no win or lose, there is only win or learn.
Shawn Thomas in “The Power of Naivete” said, “I don’t know the outcome, and right now I just don’t care. I just want to give it a try and see what happens. In that mindset, there is power, and in power, there is great possibility.”
Remember failure is only feedback and offers the opportunity, as Henry Ford said, to begin again more intelligently.
- This year is about YOUR State, YOUR Story, and YOUR Strategy.
In 2017 you must care about how you feel and commit to feeling better more consistently.
In 2017 you must tell a new story (one you actually want to be the main star of) consistently.
In 2017 you must implement strategies that align with your brilliance consistently.
Remember the quality of your life comes down to two things…
The quality of the communication with the world inside of you, and the quality of your communication with the world outside of you
- You must have fun, laugh more, and infuse that into your work.
You will not sacrifice your happiness for some expected future reward.
This is the secret to keeping your intuition sharp, your creativity high and enjoying a much more effortless ride along the way!
- You must be yourself.
Seeking approval is so last year.
It’s cool to be loved, appreciated, liked and marketable but remember the people “out there” aren’t the source of your love, happiness or approval, it’s all an inside job.
- You must create structure in your business, period.
Though some of this will seem like you’re flying by the seat of your pants, you’ll be so happy not to have to reinvent the wheel for clients.
Creating structure will Save You Serious Time Energy and Money. You must have a S.Y.S.T.E.M. in 2017.
Structure will give you freedom.
When you have structure your clients will feel more confident and trusting of your guidance to help them get to where they want to be.
- You must forgive yourself and others.
Forgive yourself for the things you regret, feel guilty about, etc.
Stop beating up on yourself about everything.
Oh, and have the guts to forgive others too, they are simply a mirror for you.
The ones that you really feel don’t deserve forgiveness will be your greatest teachers.
They are the ones who finally force you to look within and remind you that you are not separate.
Separation is an illusion.
Everything is energy and you’re connected to it all.
Forgiveness is not something you do for the others sake, it is an extreme act of self-love.
Holding on to anger, hate, resentment, etc., is like eating rat poison and expecting the other person to die.
You’re only hurting yourself.
This year you must forgive.
- Negative emotion is your friend, not your enemy.
You won’t always be a happy camper every single moment of every day.
Challenges do come up and our first responses aren’t always “Yay, this is so frickin’ awesome!”
You may have a moment when you behave “out of character” so to speak, or you think far too long about how you’d like to punch so and so’s lights out, but it will all pass… [unless you punch their lights out for realsies].
Don’t try to resist your negative emotions.
What you resist always persists and grows larger.
Negative emotion simply tells you where you’re at in your connection or lack thereof with your Source.
This year you can master your emotions instead of denying or trying to ignore them.
Don’t know how… this girl might be able to help. <<
Which leads us to number 8!
- You must have support.
You won’t do this alone.
Find a mentor or two that you REALLY vibe with that will hold you accountable to what you want.
That person who will help keep you on track with the necessary inner and outer work when you feel like you’re losing your way.
The one who will be there when life gets in the way (or you get in your own way).
The one who will help you remember who you are, hold your vision and help you shift energy when you’re afraid to take action.
Also, surround yourself with kick-ass peeps who have similar goals, big dreams and are committed to manifesting their desires just like you.
The journey is much more fun when you have awesome people who get you traveling this road with you.
- Stop worrying all the time.
Easier said than done I know, but if you think about it, the reason you usually feel bad is because there’s a thought you’re attached to.
As Byron Katie of The Work says, ask yourself if that thought is really the truth, and then ask yourself “Who would I be without this thought?”
You’ll be surprised how much lighter you feel and how much more energy you’ll have when you stop believing every thought that comes into your mind.
- Money is nothing but energy and a reflection of your beliefs.
It is not an indicator of your worthiness, but an indicator of how worthy YOU feel.
It is only your baggage around money that keeps you from having it, enjoying it, and realizing that it’s not the end game.
Jim Carey, actor, comedian and thought leader said: “I wish that people could realize all their dreams & wealth & fame so that they could see that it’s not where you’re going to find your sense of completion.”
You will have a breakthrough this year with money because you will have a breakthrough with yourSELF once and for all.
And again, if you just can’t do it yourself, get support…
- The greatest relationship you’ll need to tend to this year is the one you have with yourself PERIOD.
This year you will accept yourself just as you are, even if some others don’t.
You will love yourself even if you make mistakes.
You will treat yourself well.
You will trust that you are guided and take chances on yourself.
You will stop worrying about what others may think and put yourself out there in the marketplace because there are those who really need the gifts and talents you bring this year and it is your souls desire to co-create with them.
- Your Imagination is Powerful.
Your imagination is the greatest creative faculty you possess.
Believe it or not… You are a walking, talking movie projector and the world that is painted upon the screen of your mind & the emotions you feel about the images you “choose” to hold, shares the vibration of who you are and attracts to you the movie (life) that you get to live in day by day, moment to moment.
Einstein said, “Imagination is everything, it is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”
It is true. You are that powerful. Thoughts become things.
Your life can be a nightmare, a day-mare, or a beautiful adventure.
The choice is ALWAYS yours.
Be picky about the images you chronically entertain in your mind.
Holding to fearful images attracts more things to fear and worry about and can cause dis-ease in the body.
Hold to the images you want to see become real in your life, not the ones you don’t want and believe in the reality of your inner world as if it is so right now.
This year can be your best year yet, if you’ll allow it.
Remember to relax more, be at peace with yourself more, listen to your intuition more, make mistakes, forgive, mix it up, have fun, screw perfection and choose love over fear.
I’m here for you,
Your Future Self…
