Your Highest Intention for the New Year: Decide to Rise

The journey of the year to come demands active participation. May each of us come to touch and know intimately our highest intention. May kindness course through each of us and all around us freely and strongly.” Elena Brower

A few years ago I became a certified Deisre Map Facilitator with Danielle LaPorte. She wrote an amazing book inviting us to create intentions based on how we want to feel instead of what we think we should do. She reminds us that most of the time we work achievement upside down. Typically we come up with our to-do lists, our bucket lists, and our strategic plans – all the stuff we want to have, get, accomplish, and experience outside of ourselves. All of those aspirations are being driven by an innate desire to feel a certain way. As we move into a new year ask yourself this question instead…

How do you want to feel…

when you look at your schedule for the week?when you get dressed in the morning?when you walk through the door of your office?when you pick up the phone?when you cash the check?when you fall in love?when you accept the award?when you make the sale?

Define whatever it is you learned in the past year and be grateful. Invite whatever it is that you know you can bring into your space or release from your space in the coming year – welcome the change. Allow it to shift and open to it. This requires you to be present, to stand steady and open to your hearts desire.

Decide to Rise!
