There are two BIG QUESTIONS you need to answer for 2017. That's all. But you need to spend time at them, and dig deeply.
Q.1 - By the end of 2017, what is the one feeling you want to experience really deeply?
At the beginning of 2015, I took over an hour to get to my ONE FEELING, described by ONE WORD. It’s important to take some time out for this exercise, and to really
feel into what you want. After an hour or so, I had chosen the word “accomplished”.
I wanted to experience the feeling of accomplishment in a much deeper way that I ever had, because, in truth, while I had “achieved” lots in my life, I didn’t really feel accomplished.
So now it’s your turn. Think about 2017, and decide what ONE WORD describes how you want to feel by the end of it. Here’s a few of the other words I’ve used over the past few years …
By the time you distil it all down to ONE WORD, you won’t forget it.
What do you need to take action on so that you WILL feel …(whatever your word is) ?
Write down what needs to be done, even though you may find yourself resisting those actions steps. For me, in order to feel ACCOMPLISHED, I only had one action step - finish the book I was writing. Stop procrastinating - and just do it! No excuses.
So I did. I made space for the writing. I stopped running courses and workshops for a whole year. I wrote and rewrote, and, by the end of the year, I had finished my book.
Did I feel ACCOMPLISHED? Hell YES! That was the year I burned through frustration and procrastination - bigtime!
The process of moving through to what you want to feel and experience WILL cause you to meet your demons, your low self esteem, your blockages and limiting beliefs, but that’s part of the joy of this. You WILL defeat them once you keep your focus on that ONE WORD, and how you will feel at the end of the year.
My book is completed. I feel accomplished. This year I got a publishing contract. I feel even more accomplished. The book is called “the Possibility Exists…”
So here’s the way you can use that phrase for yourself, for 2017. Take your ONE WORD, and add the beginning of “The Possibility Exists...” Lets try a few examples …
“The Possibility Exists that by the end of 2017, I will feel ACCOMPLISHED”
“The Possibility Exists that by the end of 2017, I will feel FREE”
“The Possibility Exists that by the end of 2017, I will feel ASSERTIVE”
“The Possibility Exists that by the end of 2017, I will feel SUPPORTED”
““The Possibility Exists that by the end of 2017, I will feel ABUNDANT”
““The Possibility Exists that by the end of 2017, I will feel LOVED”
Get excited by the possibility! And then, of course, keep taking action that is congruent with how you want to feel. You can run everything you do past your ONE WORD for 2017. Check what you’re doing - and see if it resonates with what you desire to feel. If it doesn’t, it’s time to change those old patterns and behaviours.
THE POSSIBILITY EXISTS…that you can do it, Why? Because it’s true. ( Hey, if I can write a book and get published, it’s definitely true). ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!
May you deeply enjoy the co-creating process of your 2017, based on the wisdom of your heart and if you feel drawn to really deepening your experience of life and to living in a more holistically intelligent way then check this out.
