Have You Delayed Having a Happy New “YOU” Year?

happy lifeStill wanting to make 2014 a Happy New “YOU” Year? Do major events keep occurring that you have allowed to put you in a delay mode?

Having just experienced a major weather event, it made me stop and think: what is really important in life?  It is so easy to get out of balance, but I am beginning to see that for most of us balance is an impossible dream. What we really need is to experience a blending of all that is important, and not quit and give up because it is not perfectly balanced at all times!

I recently read this by the former CEO of Coca Cola, Brian Dyson, speaking about priorities and balance:
“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling five balls in the air. You name them – work, family, health, friends and spiritual – and you’re keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back.

But the other four balls – family, health, friends and spiritual – are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged, or even shattered. They will never be the same.”

Which is more important to you?  To keep juggling and not get your priorities straight, or seeing if there is a way to blend these areas with the right priorities and not drop any of them?

John Maxwell shares: “Keep your priorities straight. Taking care of your family, your health, your relationships and your spiritual life is not a selfish act. It’s a sustaining one.”

So today as we begin the third month of the year, and Spring Forward tonight into a new season; do you need to reset and blend your priorities to keep your commitment of having a Happy New “YOU” Year, and not delay, quit or give up?

Have a great week finding out!

Want to set yourself up for resolution success? Three simple rules to follow:

1. Find your motivation.
“When a goal is intrinsic—something you want for personally meaningful ­reasons—you are more energized to pursue it,” says psychologist Pauline Wallin, Ph.D., author of Taming Your Inner Brat. So if you want to become more punctual, do it because you want to be more respectful of other people, not because you want their approval.

2. Remove the obstacles.

Convenience is key to making a new routine last. Want to get in the habit of exercising first thing in the morning, for instance? Lay out your workout clothes and shoes before turning in
for the night.

3. Watch your words. ­­
“The language you use in building habits is very important, because it reflects your intention and mind-set,” Wallin says. So tell yourself “I will cross off the toughest things on my to-do list” rather than “I should” or “I’ll try.”

Thanks Stacey for sharing some great ways for us to have a Happy New “YOU” Year! I’m in, how about you?
