Why resolutions don't work

Charting a course for the New Year:
You have made resolutions many times before, we all have. Resolutions don't work. But, you can your achieve dreams and desires. Break habitual patterns in your thinking and behavior, review lessons learned in 2008, set goals for 2009, and create and a new life story for the New Year. The process will encourage you to set grander and greater dreams, all in accordance with your own personal life purpose and inner guidance.

Simple steps to replacing your resolutions with what really works

1. Ask, "What is my biggest insight or lesson learned in 2008?" Write it down (you'll be building on it!).

2. Set intention. "What do I want to see manifest in my life in '09?" Write it down in detail (so clear you can smell it, taste it, and feel it).

3. Ask, "What in me could stop me from creating my intention in '09?" Write it down (then burn or rip it up).

4. Create a mental picture of what you want and review it every night before you go to sleep (the last thought at night programs your subconscious mind).
