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.)
