Well 2012 is quickly approaching, and it is the perfect time to remind that you can make 2012 the greatest year of your life so far. If you are ready to propel your life and attract all the magic and miracles you long for, follow these ten steps. You can easily implement then right now and make 2012 truly amazing.
1. Get Clear.
In order to make 2012 the greatest year of your life, you must know exactly WHAT you desire to experience and WHY you want to experience it. If I asked you what you want to experience in 2012, would you be like most people and tell me a vague list of things. For example- would you say, “I want more money in 2012”. Well, if I give you a dollar, you would have more money, but you probably would say “I meant I want a large sum of money” or you might say, “What I really desire is to increase my income by $25,000.00.” The lesson here is to get crystal on for you desire in 2012. If you were ordering a coat from an online store, you would note the color, size, material, and anything else needed to be sure you received what you wanted, so you have to do the same with your desires. Once you are clear on what you desire, you must have a massively important reason or purpose for having it. And this is one of the main reasons that stop most people from getting what they desire—they have no massively important, emotional, passionate reason or purpose for having it. Now this is very important to understand. Purpose leads to enthusiasm which leads to a higher form of energy, which leads to action which leads to a higher level of results. Linking what you really desire with the reason you want it will harness the power of intention and improve the impact of your results.
Tip: Let go of your limitations and write as many things you truly desire to experience that will make 2012 your greatest year ever. Be sure to include desires for every major area in your life, from health and romance to wealth and happiness and family to career. Here’s your chance to dream big for 2012. As you write them, make them crystal clear. Now, rate the importance of having each of these desires on your list individually as in how emotionally important they are to you. How absolutely passionate are you about experiencing these things? If it’s no big deal, give it a rating of 1. If you like to have this, but you are not really going to take action to get it, give it a 5. If it’s something you absolutely must have in your life in 2012, or this year will not be fulfilling, give it a 10. For each of your desire that has a rating of 8, 9, or 10, write the reason why you desire it, how it will make you feel and some specific benefits you will receive from it. For example, let’s say you have a desire for a vacation house in the mountains, you might write something like:
“I desire a vacation house in the mountains so my family and I can get more into nature. I want to have this house so that I have a serene place to relax and to get away. By having this house, I will feel more peaceful and rejuvenated, and I would be much more energetic and productive working on my dreams.”
The reason why you want your desire should just flow from your heart, and you shouldn’t have to think about it. If you have to think about why you desire it, it is not coming from your heart. Instead it is coming from your Ego. If you have a problem writing a purpose why you desire it, change your rating from a 10 to a 3 because that’s what it probably is. If what you desire is coming from your heat, you will feel great joy as your write the purpose for having it.
2. Set Intentions.
For each of your desires that you rated 8, 9, or 10, set an intention for them. An intention is your declaration of the end result of what you desire to experience to your subconscious mind and the Universe. It is a statement of a future result, and unlike goals, wishes, or hopes, intentions are more concrete, emotional and inspired. Instead of saying your intentions orally, write them because it becomes a command that directs your subconscious mind, your super-conscious mind and the Universe to pay attention and respond to your request. When you focus on an intention coupled with emotions consistently, it activates a vibration and draws to itself all that is needed to make it manifest into the physical world. Remember, every thought that you think has its own energetic vibration. That thought is impressed into your subconscious mind and broadcasted out into the Universe. Through the Law of Attraction, it will energetically attract people, events, things or circumstances that are vibrating at the same frequency. The clearer your intention and the more emotion you can put behind your intention, the faster it will manifest. So clarity and emotion are very important. In fact, your intentions will manifest in direct proportion to the emotion you put behind them.
Tip: Write an intention for each of your desires on an index card and read them daily with emotions. Begin your intention statement with “I AM so happy and grateful that I…” and end each intention with “or something better. I do this in ways that are for my highest good and all concerned.”
For example: “I AM so happy and grateful that I easily earn $100,000 or something better in 2012. I do this in ways that are for my highest good and all concerned.”
3. Schedule Actions.
Getting clear about what you want to experience and setting intentions are great for creating your reality in 2012, but you must schedule time to take action. When you schedule your actions, you are making a commitment to manifesting your desires. So get out a calendar and write down action steps. If you don’t know all the action steps, don’t be concerned at this time because the Universe will reveal them to you. Just schedule some actions to start the ball rolling. Write them down in a calendar or agenda book. This will help you clearly see what to do next.
Tip: If your desires seem overwhelming, break them down into smaller steps. As the saying goes, how do you walk a thousand miles? One step at a time.
4. Take Massive Inspired Action.
Although scheduling your actions will help you see what needs to be done, actually taking action will make it happen. Many students of the Law of Attraction overlook the word “action” right in the word “attraction.” Nothing happens until you move, so if you want to make 2012 to be great, you must take action. Even if you wanted to win the lottery, you have to take action to purchase a lottery ticket.
Tip: Do not create a to-do list. Instead create a results list which focuses on the end result of what you want to achieve that day or week. For example, if you were writing a book, don’t put an action to write 10 pages on your schedule. Instead put complete 10 pages for chapter one of my book. Review your schedule daily and get at least one result each day that will move you in the direction of making your intentions for 2012 come into reality.
5. Face Your Fears.
If you have really big intentions, you will probably encounter fears, doubts, set-backs and blocks along your journey in 2012. Fear is one of the ego’s most powerful tactics it uses to maintain control over you, and it can be a prison and keep you trapped in a limited reality of struggle and unhappiness. Don’t let it stop you. Fear isn’t something to stop you; it’s simply a warning that you that you are leaving your comfort zone and doing something new.
Tip: Anytime you experience or you feel uncertain or doubtful, take a deep breath and use that energy to move forward. Focus on the fact that what you desire is on the other side of your comfort zone. If your fear does not dissipate, do some rounds of EFT (Energy Freedom Techniques). Read “What is EFT” to learn about this method for releasing fear.
6. Program Your Mind.
From this day forth, start filling your mind with positive information. If you normally watch the mainstream news, discontinue this practice today because the news media is a contrived industry that just focuses on the negative events in society. It’s designed to program you with fear, doubt, anxiety, and uncertainty. The news does not have a commitment to the truth. The news has a commitment to sensationalism or even manufacturing news events which scares the crap out of people and keep them glued to the TV. If you are serious about making 2012 an amazing year, spend your time listening to self-improvement audios, reading success literature, and watching inspirational and biographic informational on successful people. However, do not be concerned with the news on the television, radio, or online.
Tip: If you have been following the masses, your mind needs to be reconditioned for success. Browse the online catalog at Nightingale-Conant and purchase audio programs that inspire and expand your consciousness and awareness about you and your latent power. Some of the programs are available for immediate download. Visit Amazon and search for books on success, self-help material, and biographies that will immerse you and update your mindset for success. Also you can watch videos in the personal development and success genres on Youtube. There many great videos on meditation, EFT, etc.
7. Celebrate Your Achievements.
Here’s a little known secret for success: Celebrate your achievements. Too often people set big goals and achieve them and move to the next goal, but they fail to acknowledge the small successes they had along the journey to the goal. About a decade ago, a friend decided to become medical doctor. It took him nearly 17 years until he achieved his goal. During those years, he earned a Bachelor degree and graduated from medical school, but he did not celebrate until he completed his residency and fellowship. He failed to acknowledge the successes along the way; therefore, he missed some of the joy that was available during his medical training. So this year, make it a habit of acknowledging and celebrating your achievement and success no matter how big or small.
Tip: Here is how you can start adding celebration for your achievements. Decide on a way to privately and independently reward yourself for your accomplishment. Buy yourself a present or splurge on a full body message at the spa. If you want to celebrate with friends and family, decide on a way to include them in celebrating your accomplishments. This will help you to accept your success and give others a chance to express their joy for you. No matter which way you decide to celebrate your achievements, write it down beside the intention. Look at the list daily, preferably just before going to sleep each night so it will program your subconscious mind of this upcoming celebration.
8. Raise Your Standards.
Whatever you have in your life or what you are experiencing is due to your standards. Your standards are what you are willing to accept for yourself, and they are based on your level of deserving. If you have low standards, you will experience situations and circumstance that you truly do not desire. If you feel that you don’t deserve most positive experiences aligned with your desires, you will keep your standards low.
Tip: Recognize that you are just as deserving as everyone on the Earth. No person is better than you and you are no less than another person. From that vantage point, decide what you will accept and no longer accept in life 2012. Now, go be that person who knows he/she is deserving of the best and have high standards for what you expect from life.
9. Change Your Friends.
Your environment and who you surround yourself with play critical roles in what you experience in your life. Whether you know it not, you are the average of the five people that are closes to you. If these people give you permission to be less than you be and accept your excuses why you are not living your dreams, you need to change them. You can help them improve what they are experiencing in life or you get new friends. So, surround yourself with people who encourage you, inspire you, and bring out the best in you.
Tip: Create a mastermind group or join a group of people who are committed to be their best. If you are unable to find the support you need, check out http://www.meetup.com/ and search for groups using key words such as success, law of attraction, Anthony Robbins, etc.
10. Express Gratitude
Expressing gratitude is a spiritual practice of faith and expectation in action, and it is a very powerful component in the manifestation of what you truly desire. In fact, gratitude is one of the most powerful energies in the Universe because it offers so many benefits, so commit to being grateful as much as possible. When you are in a sincere state of gratitude, your vibrational resonance is one of acceptance and harmony. You resonate at a much higher vibrational frequency which attracts to you the events, conditions, and circumstances that you desire. At any time that you are NOT expressing gratitude, you are in essence resisting what you are experiencing. As a result, you place your focus on what you do not desire and this creates a “magnetic force” which only serves to draw to you more of that which you do not desire.
Tip: Express gratitude daily and often. When you first awaken in the morning, reflect on all the things, peoples, and circumstances you are truly grateful for now and what you desire to have in your life. Throughout the day, express gratitude for what you appreciate in your life. Before going to sleep at night, express gratitude for everything that you experience. As you express gratitude to the Divine, be sincere and do it with joy and love. To assist with recording what you are grateful for in your life, you can use a gratitude journal which is a paper notebook, electronic text editor (journal), or blog that you use to write about the things you are grateful for each day. It is away to help you consciously focus on the things you have attracted in your life that make you feel joy. By expressing gratitude, you become aware of these things, thus you create a shift in your thinking and your attitude. .
