The New Year is one of the most magical times of the year, and as I reflect on 217, one of the biggest lessons that I've learned this year is that, "thoughts become things, so choose the good ones."
This insight came from TUT, an inspirational brand co-founded by Mike Dooley to remind us of life’s fundamental truths: that life is magical, we are powerful, and dreams really do come true.
And also thanks to this awesome site, I have a new, fresh outlook on how to approach the New Year that would actually result in elevated levels of happiness, joy, and success, rather than the usual guilt from not fulfilling my "resolutions" and empty claims of "New Year, New Me."
So you actually want to be happy in the New Year, I suggest you follow the suggestions below.
Soon the new year starts, so now's a great time to:
1. Wipe the slate clean.
2. Focus upon what you really want.
3. Chart your course.
Or is that a bit old school? Feels tiring? Ugh!
How about an adventurous alternative:
1. Give thanks that your life is exactly as it is.
2. Decide that 2018 will be the happiest year of your life yet.
3. Every day, follow your heart and instincts down new paths.
This will be your year!
