Setting New Year Resolutions, Intentions and Goals: Your Wording Matters!
As a therapist I am constantly aware of the words we use with ourselves and others. Wanting to accomplish goals leaves you “wanting” to accomplish them, not necessarily getting them done.
When we use present-tense and the phrase “I am” ( or “I love”) it sends the message to our subconscious that THIS is what is happening right now and we start seeing it show up. “This is” who we are and our subconscious starts to feed and nurture it.
When setting your goals and intentions for 2018 use phrases like:
“I am wildly successful at my job.”
“I love my job.”
“I have all the money I need to feel secure.”
“I love the way I feel in my body.”
Remember, even if you aren’t feeling that way just yet, when your subconscious hears you speaking and thinking that way, it starts to get on board. You start to feel the way you want to feel and start seeing the results you “want” to see. Give it a try! What do you have to lose?
