Every year at New Years, there’s lots of talk about change, resolutions, and making the next year better than the last. You have the opportunity to co-create the life you really want to live.
So how exactly do you make that transformation?
I think the hardest part for a lot of people is creating a vacuum: Letting go. Letting go of the past, letting go of limiting beliefs, and letting go of situations (and sometimes people) that no longer serve them.
The New Year holds all the promise and potential of manifesting all your dreams. But if you’re focusing on what went wrong last year, the goals you didn’t reach, and beating yourself up for your shortcomings - you’re sabotaging the New Year before you ever even get started. To manifest your dream life, you must learn from the past, accept the present and intend the future.
So here are my suggestions for making 2013 the most absolutely, wildly, madly, overwhelmingly, freakin’ awesome, exhilarating, and EPIC year you’ve ever had!
1) Forgive Yourself
No one accomplished everything they wanted to in 2012, unless they’re dead. Give yourself a break. Let go of shame, and resolve to do better.
2) Get Your PhD in Prosperity
Now this step isn’t easy and I don’t expect many of you to do it. But if you’re totally and completely committed to changing your mindset, this will give you the real world equivalent of a PhD in Prosperity. There are 108 videos (and counting) on my Prosperity TV channel. Go back to the first one and watch five a week until you’ve gone through them all. I guarantee you that your mindset and prosperity consciousness will grow exponentially and you’ll start recognizing and acting on many more lucrative and rewarding projects.
3) Upgrade Your Board of Directors
Who are the people you mastermind with, get advice from, and hang out with when you let your guard down? If you want a better 2013, you have to upgrade the influence you’re dialing into. And with the Internet today, you have the chance to plug into some of the most amazing people on earth. Make the most of this.
4) Work on Yourself Everyday
Your prosperity grows exactly as fast as you do: No faster, no slower. The only way to really increase your wealth is to increase the value you provide the universe. And that means growing yourself. Watching Prosperity TV regularly will help. But you still need daily self-development time, to work on your body, mind and soul. You have to be learning new knowledge and developing new wisdom. I believe this is best done in the morning, so you set your intention and create your consciousness for the whole day.
5) Get Healthy
I learned a long time ago that if my body couldn’t keep up with my mind, I’d never achieve the audacious goals I set for myself. Eat better. Get enough sleep. Carve out relaxation time. Only an idiot would say they are too busy to be healthy. Find 30 minutes a day for exercise, or find 24 hours a day to be fat, sick and dead.
6) Do a “Burning Bowl Ceremony”
I do this every year, and sometimes more. This is a ceremony where you release the things that no longer serve you, literally burn them, and substitute them with new things you want in your life. Example: you might release vengeance and replace it with forgiveness. Here’s a Prosperity TV show that explains how to do it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yiB7q4U0xS8&feature=youtu.be
7) Do Epic Shit!
Please. Stop playing small. Be bold. Be daring. Be willing to go for it. Make sure your dreams are big, bold, and daring enough to be worthy of the new person you’re becoming. So whatever you decide to do this year, make it EPIC!
Here’s my mantra for 2013 – I invite you to make it yours:
My vices are property of my learning, my virtues belong to truth, my wisdom comes from my mistakes, and my challenges create my victories.
Happy New You!
P.S. I had some wonderful vacation time to relax, recharge and get ready for 2013. I spent time in Hong Kong, Bali and of course South Beach, and now I’m heading to Hawaii. I want to thank my amazing friends who filled in for me here and on Prosperity TV: Lisa Jimenez, Bob Burg, JB Glossinger, Terry Brock, and Joachim de Posada. Mad love, you guys are the best!
