The Secret to REALLY Doubling Your Income this Year

It is an amazing phenomenon how at the beginning of each year so many people around the globe go about making a New Year’s Resolution.

“This year I will lose 7 kilos” or “This year I will double my income”.

Sadly, for most people it only takes a few short weeks and they are back into their same old habits and routines making no real progress towards achieving their goals and aspirations. The spark of motivation that was brought about by the excitement and expectations of a New Year has extinguished and disappeared.

As this year ends they will look forward again to the feelings of hope that a New Year will bring them. They are oblivious to how the long slow cycle continues.

Can you imagine how far your car would travel if the pistons only received a spark once per year?

Perhaps we all need to up the Revs by making a New “Day’s” Resolution.

Why?

Because most people are aware of what they can really do in a day, overestimate what they can do in a year and underestimate what they can do in a decade.

It is easier to make your word law, to strengthen your resolve to do something when you know it is really within your reach. It may be a stretch but it is within your reach.

With a New Day’s Resolution the formula is simple… a happy and successful day consistently repeated means:

  • a happy and successful week
  • a happy and successful month
  • a happy and successful year
  • a happy and successful decade

that ultimately ensures a happy and successful life.

The power of a New Day’s Resolution comes from putting the emphasis on being rather than becoming. Instead of dwelling on past failures and regrets or the fear of an unknown future you have the opportunity to keep your thoughts and actions focused on what you can do and be now.

It is unlikely you’ll succeed at losing 7 kilos in one day; the numbers on the scales at the end of the day will more than likely demotivate you and an attempt to lose 7 kilos in one day will probably have a negative effect on your health. You can however focus on the achievable goal that “Today I will only eat enjoyable wholesome nourishing foods that energize and support me.” You are successful at being a healthy eater.

Do this just once and you now have your first taste of success, a reference that allows you to believe and imagine being your ideal weight. The piston has fired and you’re ready for the next day’s spark.

If today your thoughts, feelings and actions are congruent with being then you are attracting what you want now. You’re not getting around to attracting it sometime before the end of the year.

Above all you don’t want to make becoming a denial of being. Set your New Day’s Resolution up so that you’re happily achieving today not achieving to be happy tomorrow.

Marci Shimoff author of Happy for No Reason: 7 Steps to Being Happy from the Inside Out says it best. Success doesn’t attract happiness… happiness attracts success.

Happy New Day!
