It is, the new year 2021, and the 1st of January of each year is a very special day in our calendars, a time for welcoming the new year, a time of celebration. However, in the universal scheme of things in this cosmos, there is no such thing as “Old Year” and “New Year”. These are all demarcations that we as human beings have made to measure our life and take stock of the past 365 days and whether they were filled with defining transformative moments. Many people thus make new year resolutions and try to be a better version of themselves.
However, in 2021, I urge you to replace your new year’s resolution with a personal vision statement, a more optimistic, forward-looking mindset which summons success. You may begin by asking yourself, “How do I see myself at this moment?” “What is the most lofty goal that I can seek in my life?” “What is my vision?” “How will I feel if I become it?” Conceptualize the image. Envision it. Think about it. Feel it. Affirm it.
If you have a vision of what you wish to do with yourself and the world around you, you can surely manifest it. If your vision of life is clear, you just need to seek it every moment. Your beliefs and your vision are the greatest contributors to your success. Change doesn’t happen because you create a new year resolution, change happens because you have a vision, you see what you wish to become, take steps to make it happen, and begin living the vision. Being ready for the new year is being ready for life, preparing yourselves for whatever happens with an open heart—while also establishing the resolve to pursue your aspirations.
My dear readers, this new year show up with full integrity, no matter what is happening to you. March forward to a year where the purpose is your priority, the spirit is your strategy, and fulfillment is your focus. Experience a year dedicated to you and your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual breakthrough. 2021 is beckoning you. Are you ready?
“Every new year is an opportunity to reflect upon who we are, what we experienced, and what we want to accomplish. Through reflection comes awareness, the foundation from which skillful action can arise.” Rolf Gates, Yoga Teacher
