“Everyone who got where he is, had to begin where he was.” — Robert Louis Stevenson
It may seem a little early to be thinking about the New Year, but I wanted you to have enough time to be prepared if you do want to do this as you welcome in the New Year.
What are your goals and wishes for 2016? This can include practical goals as well as wild dreams type things that you have no idea how to make happen. Write these all down on one long list.
This little practice can be a very powerful tool for reinforcing what we want. You could do this on New Year’s Eve or any other day you prefer. Write your wish list for 2016 on a piece of paper. Then light a candle. Review your list of accomplishments, gratitude and overcoming.
Bask in the sense of acknowledgment and gratitude. Now read aloud your wish list for 2016 and blow out your candle. You can do this alone or with a friend or two, or partner and take turns. It is a very powerful exercise to get you started in the right direction for the coming year.
