Making Better Decisions After the Holidays
Here is it just after the holidays and hopefully we are all in a reflective place that helps us to be in consideration and appreciation for all that we have been fortunate to enjoy experiencing over these last few months. Perhaps if we are expressing anything other than positive associations related to our holiday celebrations, it may be helpful for us to that we take a moment to realign our choices. Each time that we reach for and embrace the holidays (before, during and after) as a positive perspective; we are allowing our self to be rewarded with even more goodness. The Law of Attraction states, “Positive attracts positive and negative attracts negative. So as we begin a New Year, it is appropriate for us to hold in mind being in gratitude, and also willing to welcome more goodness and abundance into our life.
The New Year is always about new beginnings. Each new day offers us an opportunity to perceive things as positive, in good order, and progressing nicely. And yet, if we are focused on any negative aspect of any situation, we are on some level insisting on being right. We are also choosing to focus on problems instead of working towards having a peaceful resolution with our self or situations that we are involved. In other words we are continuing to focus on lack. And the more attention we give to a negative situation, we are further locking in place exactly what we would like to avoid. So as we look back onto the holidays and find that we are still complaining or wanting to change some aspect of what has already occurred; we are building resentments and judgments. Our negative perceptions therefore make everyday situations and realities appear to be perceived as more challenging or unnecessarily difficult. Our insisting on being right is always in favor of a perception of being selfish.
There is a difference in our disagreeing and being willing to be flexible. In choosing flexibility, we are agreeing that by being considerate of having an appropriate and peaceful outcome, that it is possible and probable for us and others to move forward. Choosing to be flexible may also include recommendations or suggestions that we hadn’t previously considered. Flexibility is also our focusing on positively benefitting the project or situation. Our electing to make appropriate decisions that focus on having peaceful and enjoyable resolutions is a great place to begin the New Year.
Everything begins with a thought. First thought; then action. So as we shift our conscious awareness away from seeing the problem, and move towards focusing on having a positive resolution, we are also allowing the problem(s) to begin to move forward and also experience a favorable outcome. Nothing changes if we keep doing things in the same way. Our being positive, thinking positively, or expressing that we wish to be peacefully resolved, is about sharing with our self (projects, relationships, etc.) in a gentle manner. If you take a moment and ask yourself, “Could this situation get any better,” you have quickly proven to yourself, that when we are willing to see things positively, positive outcomes immediately become available; and without struggle. Also keep in mind that positive outcomes exclude: deprivation, manipulation, separation, and lack. It is helpful to hold in mind that “positive” never hurts.
As previously said, “Everything begins with a thought.” By choosing to incorporate positive associations among our projects or relationships, allows these realities to gain momentum. Being positive includes: being open, friendly…, having choices, resources, abundance…, Win/Win for all, good communications, and flexible timelines. Notice which scenario you would prefer to experience. More negative? Or… perhaps choosing to be positive after all. Either choice is equally available to you. The important consideration is deciding which option you would like to experience for yourself.
In order for us to continue to move forward and achieve even better results, requires that we always hold in mind our positive intentions. It is also helpful for us to remind our self what our goals are on a daily basis. It truly is okay to choose to be positive each day. It is wise to practice making better decisions. Perhaps asking yourself better questions such as, “Is this mindset helpful to my project…, relationship…, or business association?” If what you are focusing on isn’t to you best liking, make another choice.
Any time we move up into courageousness, we are examining our thinking with a willingness to let go of holding onto negative perceptions or our remaining stuck. As we move into acceptance, we are declaring, “Yes, this situation could greatly benefit by looking at things in a calmer, more confident manner.” Being in acceptance also means that we are willing to accept the situation “As it is,” in this moment without bitterness or regret. Perhaps another way of saying this is, “I’m done fighting to be right.” When we choose to move up towards having a peaceful outcome, we are also willing to make changes in our belief system. In peace, we can choose to take appropriate action.
So making better decisions begins within our belief system. Others may influence or guide us; although the final decision is always ours to make. Learning to like our self or have high self-esteem is important. We can choose to set realistic goals. We can choose to allot more time. We can ask for the help of others. We can begin to trust more—have faith, so to speak, that all will work out well. Trust you can easily accomplish your goals. Trust that the only things that are preventing you from achieving your goals, is limited or outdated beliefs. Move from “I can’t… to I CAN!” Belief you can do whatever you set your mind in achieving. Practice making better decisions all day long. Try this for a week and see if within a week’s time that you are feeling better about your current situation. The good news is, “The better the results, the more likely you are to continue!”
In conclusion, Lester Levenson has shared this thought, “There are no limits to the level of happiness and peace that are available to each of us if we believe this to be true.” Prove to yourself that making better decisions is helpful to improve all areas of your life.
