Whatever we may have experienced up until today is now history. Although we may no longer have the ability to change what’s already occurred, these things don’t necessarily have to determine our tomorrow, do they?
What might we want to choose instead?
We celebrated the birth of the new year a few days ago, now what might we want to do?
A new year offers a new beginning that presents an opportunity for us to choose any modifications we may want to implement for our business and daily lives going forward.
What may that first step be toward experiencing what we prefer?
Will we begin the new year by switching to automatic pilot doing things the way we’ve always done?
What might we desire that’s different? Why might we want to do it differently? How might this feel when this happens?
Consistently turning to old routines might sabotage our success if we continue to do everything the same way as things around us change.
What’s one thing about us that doesn’t change even when everything else seems to?
Each of us is unlike any other; therefore, there’s no one-size-fits-all response.
Answering some of these questions and discovering why it feels important can be a small step toward creating a fresh start.
It can be hard to implement something new without an idea of how to achieve our goals, like trying to drive across the country without directions and a map to get us there.
We could potentially drive around in circles or way off course unless we know how to get where we’re going, right? It could take much more time to get to our destination than it has to.
How many years in the past might we recall making the same resolution that never occurred or took longer than desired to achieve without having the right tools?
As I reflect on the past, it seems more obvious to me now that I had lived a disjointed existence as I mostly focused on caring for so many others, unknowingly disregarding responsibility for my wants and needs.
The most important thing I didn’t know that I didn’t know about myself was that I’d never asked myself any internal questions or recognized there were options I could choose to get me where I longed to be.
I wasn’t “ME” and being “ME” turned out to be the vital ingredient that changed everything for the better on the job and at home.
When we acknowledge that we have the power to choose what we want to do rather than what feels like we “have to” do, our resolutions can become daily solutions.
Kicking that “have-to” habit and becoming the best version of ourselves in all facets of life can allow us to regularly make decisions with positive intentions and stay on a confident path.
Reminding ourselves that we have the power to make choices that help point us toward a better direction can be our strongest tool; “and suddenly you’ll just know it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of new beginnings.” ~ unknown
This year, in 2022, will we choose to experience an impossible mission or begin the New Year with possibility and opportunity?
How might it feel to uncover who we want to be at our core, become #1 on our “to-do” list, and reset in 2022 with new magical prospects?
If you haven’t discovered your “secret identity” (the best version of yourself that you haven’t met yet), start the New Year by becoming the “ME” you want to be!
It’s the first “ME” Monday® of 2022! Establishing a “ME” routine is step one toward revealing what we may not know we don’t know about ourselves.
