New Year’s Resolution

Posted by on Jan 3, 2011 in The problem, Uncategorized | One Comment

I can’t tell you how excited I am for 2011. I don’t think I have ever felt this much animation for a new year before. I will say I am grateful for the 2010. I learned so much in this last year, more than I have learned in one year that I can remember. I feel like I accomplished a lot too. I had a lot of “first time” experiences, some of them very difficult and emotional and some of them so amazing and awesome. I am pretty sure I felt the whole spectrum of emotions in 2010! The amount of learning was deep and because of all of this I am grateful to see what 2011 has in store.

I am feeling really good about what I am going to create in this next year. More than ever in my life I feel like I have control about what the future holds. You always hear of people setting new years resolutions and goals. I think this is great and I am not only going to do this goal setting right now but I am going to continue every week to revamp and evaluate where I am at.

I had a little epiphany the other night while at a new year’s party. Someone asked me some question about my life and I said “I don’t know” in response. Then this kid said, “Well if you don’t know how will you ever make anything happen?”

I turned to him and said a bit sarcastically “You are a genius!”  The truth is I had been meddling over this idea for the last couple weeks. I constantly beat myself up over not “having it all figured out” in terms of a career in my life. This is fine, I don’t need to have all the answers…yet. But the part that gets to me is if I have no vision how will I ever make anything happen? Ambiguity creates lack of action. However, on the flip side it is also true and this is what I want to emphasize.

CLEAR VISION CREATES ACTION! When we have a clear vision or goal we know what it is we are working towards.  When we are honest with ourselves about what is in our hearts and allow ourselves to actually dream we begin to see what it is we really want. When we know what we want we can begin to make it a reality!

My problem is twofold. I haven’t known what I wanted because I haven’t allowed myself to dream big! My rational mind comes in at the onset of something glorious and says something like, “you are too old for that now”…. “you are not qualified to do that”… “the chances are slim”… “you are not smart enough” yada yada yada bull crap! I am so over that way of thinking!

So here is my new year’s resolution. I Davia King am going to allow myself to dream and envision all that my mind can conjure up, I will win in my fantasies and build on what my mind can create. I will focus on what I want rather than reason of why I can’t have it. I will let these dreams build and build until I hone in on what I truly want to manifest. I intend to then make these dreams into reality because what we focus on in our lives becomes reality. I will do this by letting go and forgiving myself of all my irrational beliefs and replace them with a positive self supporting belief. I will create a vision board to help me remember what it is I have in my heart. I will take daily actions to lead me closer to making these dreams true and I will evaluate my progress weekly. I will create exactly what I want out of this year, as will you. So what is in your heart? What are you doing to make it a reality? 2011 is going to be a great year come fly with me!
