WEEKLY NEWSLETTER FOR January 1, 2018

Theme for the month of January is:

A FRESH START

          Several articles I’ve read of late address the matter of keeping New Year’s resolutions alive and fulfilling. It’s easy enough to make resolutions. However, research now bears out the unhappy truth. A whopping 81% of such resolutions will be either forgotten or wracked up as failures. 

          However, strange as it may be, many of us still enjoy, even look forward to making resolutions. “Hope”, it seems, “still springs eternal.” So let’s look at a few ways that can be of benefit to achieving any reasonable goal.

          What’s usually one of the first things that pop up when we set out to achieve a goal? “I need to get and stay motivated.” Well, according to a study written up in the British Journal of Health Psychology, it appears that 91% of people who wrote down a plan to follow through on their intention actually did so. Meanwhile, people who only read motivational material but no plan as to when and where they would work on their goal, showed no increase in success. Motivation has no significant effect on reaching our goals.

          My current goal is to complete a novel by the end of 2018. So I have set up a schedule devoted to only writing.  If I become interrupted for one reason or another, I make up the lost time on Saturday. This is no longer a goal to be achieved, it’s become a habit.

          First I start out each session with a warm-up address to Spirit: “I now let go of excuses. I am ready to allow Spirit to direct me in ways that allow my Muse room to create new expressions by means of me. May such expressions fulfill me and reward my readers in ways unknown to me.”

          If you have a desire that you want fulfilled, give yourself the gift of making it come true. Set a schedule of when and where you intend to take action on its accomplishment. Followed by a heartfelt word to Spirit for guidance, you have a higher chance of achieving your New Year’s resolutions.

          I want to thank James Clear for his input of resources covering ideas of how to experience resolution success.

          In Joy,

                    Rev. Pat

WEEKLY AFFIRMATION
