Isn’t it amazing what a huge psychological impact a New Year or any big change have on our lives? Just the idea of starting afresh gives us renewed energy to make positive changes and do things differently this time around.
There is an excitement in the air as we ready ourselves to launch with new vigour and enthusiasm. Just like a bird shaking and rearranging its feathers we straighten our bodies and feel the confidence as we move forward purposefully, ready for the new adventure!
Of course this really comes together if the inspired changes are aligned to a bigger picture like a life vision that gives you sustainable motivation to follow through and experience the effect of the changes on your life.
“Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.” – Joel A. Barker’s famous quote speaks to this and resonates with me personally.
Thinking about your life and especially your love life, what do you want to achieve this year? Do you want to:
- Find your soul mate
- Save your marriage
- Deepen the connection with your partner
- Have more sex
- Get a divorce
- Leave an abusive relationship
- Move on from a dead-end relationship
- Find new purpose and meaning in your life
- Develop your personal power
To achieve this, what would it look like?
What would the impact be on your love life and life as a whole?
What would that give you?
What is important about that for you?
Whatever you wish to achieve you need to remember:
- You need to take responsibility for the change you want.
- You must want it for you and not to please anybody else
- It starts with your relationship with your self
- You cannot change anybody, you can only change yourself.
You see to follow through you need a WHY, hence the questions above.
Taking responsibility is important because often we blame our problems on things external to ourselves – our partner, family, job, circumstances, etc. When you take responsibility for the change you feel empowered to be able to change starting with you for you.
Of course you still need to know what needs to change in order to effect the change. Here you can be blind because you just don’t see what you need to change. To effect sustainable change includes changing your limiting beliefs about you, your partner and your relationship.
When your relationship with your Self is healthy, then everything else falls into place to easily make your vision real in your life.
Take a moment now: see what you really want and evaluate it using the questions and criteria above. What do you become aware of?
