75 Questions: Day 65

There are only 10 questions left. Are you amazed about the changes evident in you?

When the questions began, 75  days ago, which then was the exact number of days before the opening of a new year 2017, according to the Gregorian calendar. The countdown began and now there are 10 days until New Year (Monday – Sunday). As is customary, the remaining blog postings will ask you just one question. That question may inspire you, it may perplex you, it may anger you, it may be the catalyst for indelible change, or it may even tickle you.

The intent of all 75 questions is to probe, to prompt a reaction, to get you to stretch, to press beyond tradition or boundaries, to think broader, to break free, to face the fear, or liberate you by confirming what you already know for sure. You are only asked to respond each day with a thoughtful answer to the question.

Each question, ultimately, is to give you the intimate space to recover how to love yourself which universally expands and to allow you to love and live with empathy for others.

These 75 question can precipitate change. The question is to be a inquiry into pathways of inner change that leaves you feeling more healthy, safe, in control, powerful, intrigued, and authentic.

When these amazing emotions are opened up within you (they already exist), you change and your world changes and the whole world changes with you.

Question 65: How healthy are you?

New Year, New Achievement

How do you end a calendar marker such as 31 December and ready for the New Year? There are as many traditions, resolutions, or starts as there are people who pledge to makes changes in their lives starting when…you know the famous last word “tomorrow.”

Whatever you decide to change in the New Year, make your achievement intention realistic. Once you have decided what change(s) you intend to achieve, firm up your resolve.  Claude Bristol in The Magic of Believing this point of view “You are the product of your own thought. What you believe yourself to be, you are.”  Make your resolve believable then it is achievable.

One such timeless resolution, which I have stated and carried with me for the past four years, is to lose weight. Even though I did achieve most of the other resolution plans I had made in the past four years, weight loss has eluded me. I have written the books, earned more money, shed weighty relationships, and completed the Peachtree Road Race for seven years straight. That’s great, but weight loss is tougher for me because in my mind i still carry the “weight” of past misery and poor self image. The purpose for losing weight is not as primary as completing the Peachtree Road Race which I do in memory of my deceased brother who ran the Race for sixteen years. Weight loss obviously is not a powerful as writing books for I have published six books now, including Climb Every Obstacle: Eliminate Your Limits!

Still my weight gain over the years proved to be a regression. So, this year instead of making weight my resolution issue, I have decided to attract support in this area by applying to be a candidate on the television show What Not to Wear which will canonize a more palatable real need and that is to feel good about myself. The weight is a symptom of a combination of issues that I first needed to acknowledge and now resolve using a positive, embracing plan. I have also enlisted a paid support partner to hold me accountable and I have devoured The South Beach Diet and Geneen Roth’s book, Women, Food and God plus I have just received from Amazon a copy of A Course in Weight Loss by my favorite author, Marianne Williamson.

In addition to my reading stockpile on weight loss and self belief, I have purchased an annual gym membership at Bally Fitness. It appears that it will take this much effort on my part to inculcate new beliefs and new resolve for the New Year.

The other intention that I have for this year is to continue my Law of Attraction MeetUp group. This is an ancillary support session that augments this overall express of feeling good to manifest exactly what I want.

You too can manifest/achieve ANYTHING you want to do with a clear focus, laser intention, and positive affirmations of the change(s) that benefit you and ultimately humanity. One tip is to: create a vision board, take a snapshot of it and use it as your screen saver or create an online vision board at Oprah.com.

A healed and healthy you changes the universe.

We are more than a universe of one. Others, like me, need you to show up and achieve your BEST life now!

Tell me what your achievement resolutions are?

Send me a note by January 4th and I will send you a gift.

Happy New Year. My motto: I am noble healthy and fit woman.

Who are you?
