Why New Year’s Resolutions Often Feel Useless!
Ever wonder why nothing ever gets started until someone commits to doing something? Without commitment, setting “goals” is a useless process. Make a small SHIFT and focus on the commitment for whatever you choose to achieve this year to create your best year yet!
It may seem obvious, but intentionally making a commitment (and keeping focused on it long after the energy with which you started a project wears off) is the first domino in the sequence to put things into motion, then Providence stirs up the universal energy to help manifest your desired outcome or one you never imagined possible.
Here is a Goethe quote that has been very important to me over the years.
It is a great mantra to keep faith and courage alive during times of turmoil.
Until one is committed
There is hesitancy, the chance to draw back
Concerning all acts of initiative (and Creation)
There is one elementary truth
The ignorance which kills countless ideas and splendid plans:
That the moment that one definitely commits ones self
Then Providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help one
That would never otherwise have occurred.
A whole stream of events issues from the decision
Raising in one’s favor all manner
Of unforeseen incidents and meetings
And material substance
Which no one could have dreamt
Would have come your way.
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
