Happy New Year!

Yes, It’s mid-February, but it’s still a new year. I hope your 2018 is moving along with amazing success! Speaking of success, how are you coming with those New Year’s resolutions? If you are like most people, they have been long forgotten or even worse, a source of shame and regret.

Statistics show us that:

  • Three-quarters of persons break their resolutions after nine days
  • Only 1 in 4 adults feel confident in maintaining their resolutions in January
  • 6 out of 10 people surveyed admitted making AND breaking the same resolution three years in a row

There are a lot of ideas on how to make your resolve on your resolutions more successful. For me, I quit writing resolutions years ago. Instead, I began setting intentions.

An intention is the starting point of every dream. It is the creative power that fulfills all of our needs, whether for money, relationships, success, fulfillment, spiritual awakening, or love.

Some of my intentions for this new year are:

  • To incorporate a meditation practice each morning
  • To engage in lunch breaks and mini-breaks throughout my day where I completely disconnect from all media and devices
  • To be aware of the thoughts I carry through my day
  • To take more naps
  • To kiss my Great Danes at least 10x per day

Setting intentions becomes more of an ongoing process that continuously expands and grow as I do as compared to a resolution that feels more like fail / succeed.

As a business owner, each success I can experience, helps increase my overall positive momentum which then allows me the opportunity to be of greater value and service to myself, my family, my staff, my clients and my community. And trust me, some days, a small nudge of positive goes a long, long way.

What are some of the ways in which you find success with your resolutions and intentions? What are some practices that you use? Please share them with me on social media and tag me.

Yours in deliberate intention,

Orhan
