Giving a name is a powerful act …
Seriously I started a couple years ago and love the result! I do not do “resolutions”. i focus on a theme. The first year “I AM”; the second “EXCEPTIONAL” … and boy was it! Last year’s theme was “OPEN to God’s will”, yes even in business. Difficult but oh so rewarding! Then today as I contemplated I had an interesting conversation, where the individual on the other end pointed out that New Year Day was eight days after xmas .. eight being the day of circumcision and naming ceremony.
I had never thought of what I was doing as “naming”, but that’s what I will call it from now on. No resolutions calling.
2013 I will exercise Unwavering Resilience!
I will not circumvent problems but rather face them and work my way through them. I will not allow other to sidetrack or divert programs, missions and strategies. If I fall of track I will bounce back ! It may seem simple but so often to avoid conflict I have turned away! Avoiding does not solve… it delays. Last year I lost control of “my flow” and rather than fight to stay on course, I simply turned away. I grabbed my “flow” back but I was no longer on the course set for me!
This year if you interrupt my flow… I’m taking no prisoners!
So often to avoid the tumult of the rapids we look for a calm course. Well that may mean you’re stagnant, as in a cesspool, or you’ve gone completely of course as I did. The moment I saw the obstacle I should have addressed it! This year I need to learn to travel through the rapids and to enjoy it!
I also am faced with individuals who want what is “flowing”, but still want to run their old course… which often is not compatible and is a journey that will not produce change, the very thing they desire! The challenge there is to be unwavering… or worse they simply want to bottle it solely for their use! this year i will master sharing my “flow”!
