NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS ARE FOR LOSERS
New Year’s resolutions are for losers! Why? Because if you make them, you will lose. Most resolutions die on the vine shortly after they are made. Even worse, most resolutions actually backfire and the opposite intent is manifested. Resolve to lose weight and watch the ponds go on. Resolve to be happier and you get depressed. Resolve to have better relations and you get into more fights. Resolve to get a better job and you get fired.
The reason this occurs is because when you resolve to do something, you are stating and emphasizing a current condition in your life. Form follows thought. When you say “I am going to lose weight;” you are actually affirming that you are obese. When you say “I am going to get a better job;” you are affirming that the job you have is terrible. When you say “I am going to get more money;” you are affirming you are poor. In effect, you are making affirmations about your current state of misery and those affirmations are the basis for your continued reality. Most resolutions are filled with emotion which drives the intensity of the manifestations in your life. By focusing upon food, money, a bad job, and a generally unhappy condition in your life, you are feeding those conditions with emotion and staying power.
Is there any proof of this? Well, look at your life and see how many things have changed as a result of making resolutions. How many of your last year New Year’s commitments have been fulfilled? The law of Attraction is always at work. The fundamental basis of that law is that like attracts like. So when you say you want more money, your emotional focus is really upon the money you do not have. Therefore, you attract more ‘do not have.’ When you want to lose weight your focus is really on how much excess weight you are carrying around. There, the law of attraction gives you more of what you are ‘carrying around.’ When you focus on really wanting a better job, your mind is locked onto how bad your current job is. So what you get is more of ‘of your bad job.’
All of these subtleties are keys in using the Law of Attraction. They are the “secret” within “The Secret.” The work at hand is not to resolve to do or be something, but rather to actually affirm that you are all those things you desire. Right now you are probably saying, “But I am overweight, need more money and have a lousy job.” If you did that you just affirmed this in your mind, so guess what will happen? You are a creature of habit and those habits have created your current condition. This is the mindset that would be appropriate for you to adopt. “I am healthy, abundant, prosperous and happy. I am grateful for my perfect physical, mental and emotional health and well-being. I am grateful for food, home, money job and loving relationships. My hopes, goals and dreams are fulfilled and now manifest in my life. It is my nature to be happy and blessed with all that I desire. What I have benefits all and harms none. I am grateful that I crate my own reality.”
What comes into play here is the Law of Gratitude, The Law of Attraction and the Law of Responsibility. Working in tandem, these laws bring about a new way of thinking and a new way of living. Remember, if you are reading this, you are alive and have some semblance of health. You have had enough money to buy a computer. You either are or have been employed. You have something to eat and some kind or roof over your head. As you become grateful for all of those things, the laws swing in your favor by providing you with more of what makes you happy. That sense of happiness is emotional fuel for your manifestation fire. The more fuel, the higher the flame and the better your life will become. It works! It is working now. Just see what you have a lot of, which could mean unhappiness, and that will show you what fires you have fueled. If you can’t stand the heat, time to go to a new kitchen.
