Loving Yourself is the Best Resolution. Mastery Newsletter January 19, 2018

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

New Year’s resolutions are all very fine and dandy.

 

Why do so many of them fall by the wayside?

 

Could it be that the first ingredient for successful goal setting is missing?

 

The first thing to lay a foundation for all else is…loving ourselves.

 

Without that, all is lost basically.

 

That may sound over dramatic. Let me lay out the rationale and logic.

 

At one extreme, if we loathe ourselves, really hate who we are and what we do, we can easily sabotage ourselves.

 

My subconscious beliefs about how worthy I am can cause actions and behaviours that go against the very goals I am consciously trying to reach.

 

No one can love you more than you love yourself.

 

If you want to receive love, first give it to yourself. The road to your inner core where you want to be acknowledged, nourished and loved has to be open.

 

Otherwise any love is deflected and can’t get through.

 

Simple concept. You may or may not believe this.

 

However, I challenge you to put it to the test.

 

Every morning, use Louise Hay’s self love process.

 

Look in the mirror into your eyes and say: “I love you. I really love you.” Say it for at least 20 seconds.

 

Note what happens. How you feel.

 

That may give you a sense of how much love you are allowing through to your inner core. Both from yourself and from others.

 

My experience: Very uncomfortable at first. Then it became easier.

 

I find more sense of being loved as a result.

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

(And don’t beat yourself up if and when your New Year’s resolutions fall by the wayside. Ha ha.)

Joy is a Worthy Resolution. Mastery Newsletter January 10, 2018

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

How are your resolutions for this year going?

 

Congratulations if you are still on track.

 

Many have already fallen off.

 

My friend George at my Toastmasters Club is a regular at the gym.

 

He says every year there is a flurry of activity as those who resolved to get fit join in. After about six weeks, most of them are gone again.

 

 

I have maintained that joy, fun and fulfillment are worthy resolutions.

 

Let’s look at joy.

 

“The purpose of our lives is to be happy.”

-Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

 

 

What do we do to achieve happiness?

 

We strive and struggle to achieve “goals,” thinking that once we achieve one or more of them (or more likely many, many of them), then and only then we can relax and feel good

 

The problem? If and when we reach a goal, the feeling of accomplishment may not last long and then…it’s on to another goal. Seems like a treadmill to me.

 

Two Great Secrets:

 

1) There is a shortcut to feeling good and it doesn’t depend on getting any “stuff,” and

 

2) When we choose to feel good first, it’s easier to get “stuff.”

 

Over to you. Your thoughts?

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,

Joy, Fun, Fullfilment. Worthy Resolutions. Mastery Newsletter January 3, 2018

Written by joyenergyandhealth on . Posted in Blogs, Joy, Energy and Health, Mastery Newsletter

Most New Year’s Resolution start out with intention, clarity, purpose and focus.

 

Why do so many get derailed?

 

Perhaps one or more of these reasons:

 

Life gets busy.

 

Life gets in the way.

 

The goals were not in alignment with our higher selves.

 

How to Align our Goals with Our Higher Selves

 

Ask: What do I REALLY want?

 

At the root of all desires, goals and intentions is what?

 

The desire to be happy?

 

More to the point: to be joyous?

 

Bull’s eye: to be fulfilled?

 

What if?

 

Instead of outer goals…more money, better job, newer car,etc…

 

What if?

We focused on inner goals?

 

Allowing our inner joy out to play and have fun in the outer world.

 

Exploring ways to be more fulfilled?

 

What if?

 

We have more joy, fun and fulfillment, would we feel happier as a result?

 

Would we also find it easier to achieve our outer goals?

 

Hmm.

 

Dr. Joe Vitale said this:

“Joy and bliss may seem frivolous to some but the reality is when we are having fun is when we can be the most productive in our chosen field.”

 

What can we do (or not do) to have more joy, fun and fulfillment in our daily lives?

 

Over to you.

 

To Your Joy, Energy and Health,
