New year, new plans – how to get what you want

Many people use the turning of the year as an opportunity to reflect on the past and make plans for the future.

It’s easy to go overboard though and end up trying to become a completely different person or making unrealistic plans which will inevitably fail.

The secret is to be imaginative, but realistic. To realise that we can’t change our essential selves, but we can make small tweaks in our behaviour.

It’s an opportunity to take some time out (after the madness of any New Year parties) and to sit with yourself and reflect – not on the past or the future – but where you are right now.

See what feelings and images come up. Trust your intuition and your gut feelings.

If something feels exciting, but scary, then maybe you should go for it.

If something fills you with dread and makes you feel tired, maybe it’s time to let it go and try something new.

Here are a few posts from the past which might help you make changes in the coming year.

Happy New year to you all and I hope all your hopes and dreams come true!
