I’m breathing the fresh air of a new month, a New Year, and yes, a new decade. And I’ve made a declaration that is already acting as a powerful catalyst in making great things happen this year. This week I invite you to join me in declaring your intent for the New Year.
There is something powerful and empowering about making a declaration. Think the Declaration of Independence…”We hold these truths to be self-evident…” It was on that declaration that a nation was founded. In 1962, President John F. Kennedy declared: “We will put a man on the moon by the end of the decade.” In July of 1969 that declaration of intent became true in fact.For you and me, the New Year is a perfect time to write a declaration of intent for the next 12 months. I just went through the annual Best Year Yet® planning process and have emerged feeling confident that this will absolutely, unequivocally be my best year yet—I declare it!! I hold this truth to be self-evident: that this year will be my very best yet, regardless of the economy, regardless of circumstances because I am committed to making the best of anything and everything that happens! I am committed to making courageous decisions and taking decisive action toward the goals I’ve set.
I’m ready, how about you? What will you declare to be self-evident in the next 12 months?
I dare you…no I double-dare you to state something big, bold and outrageous for yourself this year. Declare some truth to be self-evident…something you haven’t dared to breathe let alone declare until this moment.
Do you want to declare yourself free of…
- Relationship issues
Do you want to declare yourself ready to embrace…
- A new job
- A new house
- A new life
Your declaration may be in the form of an inspiring theme. Ten years ago, coming off of a very mediocre year, I declared, “This is the best year of my life!” Not surprisingly, it turned out to be true. That was the year I discovered the Best Year Yet® program. That year I made more money and attracted more new opportunities than I had before. That year my relationships improved. That year my focus and commitment improved. That theme became my self-fulfilling prophecy.
Your declaration might simply be a powerful completion to this statement: "This is the year of (fill in the blank with whatever word best describes what you see for yourself)!”
I absolutely believe…no I KNOW beyond a shadow of a doubt that each and every one of us is one choice away from turning our lives in the direction that is in perfect alignment with our highest, best thoughts, goals, dreams, and intentions. It starts with your declaration that this is the moment, the hour, day, week, month, year, decade for that highest and best to happen!
I invite you to be the prophet in your own life. Declare your intention for your new year now and then start making that truth self-evident.
Happy New Year!
