Before You Make Your New Year’s Resolutions, Read This

What would you love to see happen in your life by this time next year?

Even if you take nothing else away from this blog post today, I highly encourage you to spend some time digging deep to answer this question.

Do you dream of becoming the healthiest version of yourself, finding the love of your life or moving into your dream home?

Perhaps you can see yourself growing your business or increasing your service in the world…

The beginning of a new year is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on what you’ve learned over the last year and think about all that you’d love to accomplish in the coming year.

And for many of us, it’s the perfect time for a fresh start!

Whatever your goals are for 2019, here are three simple principles that can help you on your journey to creating a life you absolutely love living over the next 365 days.

1. Create a vision for your life one year from now

new years 2019 create vision for life

Look down at what you’re wearing right now. The clothing you have on was made the way it was made because somebody had a vision. The clothing designer had a dream or a blueprint in mind for how that particular piece of clothing would look, feel and function.

Maybe they envisioned buttons or a collar. So he or she put the pattern together, first in his or her mind, and then on paper. The next step included gathering and organizing whatever materials were needed to produce what you’re wearing at this very moment.

Why does this matter? Well, in order to create a life you’d love (I’d love to help: https://www.dreambuilderprogram.com/register/), you must first start by picturing it in your mind.

Think about this for a moment: some people spend more time planning a weekend trip than they spend planning their lives.

The simple truth is that if you keep breathing 365 more days, you’re going to arrive at January 1st, 2020. This isn’t a question or a possibility. This absolutely will occur.

So, would you like to purposefully create your life or would you prefer to step aside and let someone else create it for you?

I highly encourage you to set aside some time to create a blueprint for your life by writing down the answers to the following questions:

  1. If you could have or experience anything in your life, what would you love?
  2. If you could be the kind of person you’d love to be, who would that be?
  3. If you could share anything with your children or grandchildren, what would you love to share?
  4. What kind of results would you love to see in your business or workplace?

Whether you choose to do this exercise or not, know this: You will have results in all areas of your life as long as you keep breathing.

Your relationships will either get stronger, deeper, more powerful and more wonderful, or they may become more distant. Your health will become better or worse, even if just a little bit. You will continue to produce results in your business or career, positive or negative.

Creating a vision for what you’d love is so important because it gives us a destination in mind.

Envisioning what we truly want gives us a clear picture of what we’re building and creating, and also provides a map for how to organize our energy, time and attention.

Have fun with this exercise!

2. Make a firm decision that you want the life you envision

new years 2019 firm decision

The next practice is to decide that you want what you envision enough to be a match for that vision.

A great way to think about this is to think about what you do when you want to watch a particular TV show. You don’t sit in front of the television and hope, pray, beg or meditate for the show to come on. You simply turn on the TV and switch to your show on Netflix.

In the same way, when you make a decision, you are commanding your subconscious mind to change the direction of your life. You’re willing to change the thoughts that you think, the actions that you take, and the way you organize your time and energy to be in harmony with the vision you have for the life you’d love living.

You can be, do and have anything you want if you become a match for what it is that you say you want. This isn’t magic; it’s something that you organize, lean into and practice on a daily basis.

3. Surround yourself with support

new years 2019 support

The pull to the familiar is incredibly strong – so strong that we can imagine it like sending a spacecraft into space.

Rockets are built underneath the spacecraft. There’s a big rumbling sound as the spacecraft lifts off. Then, once it gets to the edge of the earth’s atmosphere, the pull of gravity is so strong, a booster rocket is needed. The booster rocket then shoots the spacecraft right out of the gravitational pull of the Earth’s atmosphere.

Similar to what the spacecraft experiences, there’s a gravitational pull to the lives we’ve been living – what we call our comfort zone. That’s the reason why so many people start out with great big New Year’s resolutions and end up with very small results.

Surrounding yourself with support is a huge booster rocket for you. The support you receive mustn’t be just once, and not just during the first week. You should seek out and receive support daily.

For you, this may mean five minutes per day of reading or listening to something inspirational. These few minutes of support each day can lead to huge results over the course of time.

Love speaks to each one of us in a language only we can understand

Know this: Ideas will come to you when you ask yourself, “What would I love?” These answers may not make sense to anyone else but you.

I invite you to create a vision over the next few days of what you would absolutely love in the four areas of your life: Health, relationships, vocation, and time and money freedom.

Next, make a decision to move toward creating those results in your life – not because you know how or because you’ve done it before, but because you would love it.

And finally, organize your time so that five minutes each day, in one way or another, you’re giving yourself support to stay in the frequency that’s a match of the vision you hold. Whether you watch a video on my YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/marymaninmorrissey/) or someone else’s, or read something inspirational, make it just as much a habit as brushing your teeth.

My wish for you over the next year is that you discover that there’s a power and a love within you that speaks to you on a daily basis and that you know you’re not alone in this life. Your vision will support you if you do your part.

This is going to be your best year ever. I just know it!

So…what would you love to see happen in your life by this time next year? Go ahead and share with all of us in the comments section below. I’d love to hear from you!

Would you love some extra support with setting clear, powerful and attainable intentions for the coming year?

If you want to turn your intentions into results quickly and easily…

And feel more inspired, fulfilled and ALIVE in 2019, no matter what life brings your way…

Happy New Year!

  • You are wonderful. I am starting from today to follow you, because I need to CLARITY. I am so confused in what I want and so tired of my life, that what I really know for sure, is that I need to change, but I’ve been so busy racing alone my three children, taking care of them and my mom, friends, etc, that I realized, I forgot to dream, I don’t know what I want to do to improve my financials or to find a partner or to fix my house…hopefully, following you, I will find the way to find me again

  • Truly Perfect. Thank You!

  • Wonderful video. Thank you. The first thing I need to do is get back to a healthy lifestyle. That doesn’t mean everything else is on hold. It just means I have to make time for it, make it routine every single day. Work it around my work and other responsibilities. Without health we have nothing. We can’t shine. So that is step on. Then build my coaching business. And work on my personal relationships. Happy New Year.

  • Hi Mary

    I would love to become the healthiest version of myself and become more powerful in my actions and thoughts. I am a bit of a victim to choice eg.smoking etc I would love to be free from the things that are holding me back. I have taken your 3 month course and have definately made very positive changes….it was such a wonderful eye opener. I had no idea that was how life worked. I want to be brave enough to give 10% of my income to a good cause. Do you have any suggestions??? I think you are fabulous….thank you :)

  • True, if i don’t launch myself now, nothing else will happen

  • Lilly Wagner

    Resolve and end in an equitative way our enormous family fight that has been lasting the 9 last years outside and inside the Court.

  • Patricia Moran

    I just love all of the very inspirational programs you have to offer. I am currently trying to decide on what specific offer to choose from the 3:
    “Visonering” with Michael Bernard Beckwith OR
    “The Art of Goal Setting” with Bob Proctor and Sandy Gallagher OR
    “Into Your Genius” with you Mary and Bob Proctor

    I like the idea of the “Into Your Genius” program as it has 2 of the most inspirational and powerful teachers the world has ever known and Bob isn’t going to be here with us much longer.

    One problem right now with the ‘Into Your Genius” program is that I am not sure if I can make the in-person DreamBuilder Live seminar as I currently have some legal issues that involve criminal charges that effect my current Immigration status here in Canada. However, I do have an amazing Canadian Immigration lawyer that I am convinced was sent to me as a gift from my long time deceased grandmother. This lawyer and her law firm are truly a gift from God.

    So how can I use some of your teachings to help not only to have my current criminal charge withdrawn by the Crown attorney and to have my current criminal conviction overturned by the Ontario Court of Appeal ??
    I know its a huge ask, but I need some practical guidance with regards to resolving these 2 specific issues.

  • Sharon Tippner

    Thank you for giving me the support that I need to create that which I am created to be and walk the path for a greater and better life for myself.
    You truly are a inspiration.

  • Monte Bellis

    I am in Bob Proctor coaching, the Dream Builder, and Brave Master. I am seeking,how to earn a million dollars. How to live a life not doing time at an hourly job.

  • Monte Bellis

    Honestly, if I knew what I need to do today to make my life better. I would have already done it and be on my way. I work 15 hours a day 14days a week. I am thankful to have a job. My goals are to have a life. Not just a job doing time.

  • Thank you so much for sharing this inspiring video Mary its perfect timing as we start a new year. There are many changes I need to commit to in order to live my life to the fullest again. And I think watching this video has inspired me to take small daily actions like watching and reading inspiring videos , getting some exercise daily , commiting to learning something new daily are all methods I intend to do in small increments of time daily to motivate me to push forward in my life.

  • Armah Roberts

    Thank you for sharing these simple but practical principles to a more successful and abundant life. I owe it to myself to practice these 3 simple steps religiously to succeed in 2019.

  • What would you love to see happen in your life by this time next year?
    I would love to see the love of my life come in to my life. I have been divorced close to 14 years.I have not had anyone after the divorce mainly because I was raising 4 children and they were my priority; 3 are now gone and I’m left with one 14 year old. I would love to feel the essence of being a family by having my husband, my daughter and me become one family. Please stand with me in this prayer for it is so long overdue. I want my daughter to see what it is to have a father figure around. Thank you for your support.

  • Desi Tahiraj

    My dear Mary, I THANK YOU Very Much for this wonderful feedback. The 2019 it will be a Big Breakthrough and achievements for me and people that I adore as my vision, direction, Time and Energy I put all my heart into it and with your help and my friends it will be splendid. I feel it in my bone:-)

  • I enjoyed this video, I enjoy listening to you.

  • Mary you are so right about the support – without it, I go right back to fear and struggle. One step I am taking to move myself to a better future, is clearing space. Space in each room of the house and space in the garden. My main goal is to finish all the projects I’ve started. Thank you for your positive message and Happy New Year!

    Thank you, and may you, also,have a year of living your dreams.

  • I just came from church to nurture and support my heart. It has been two years Jan. 3rd and this seems to be harder than last year since my husband suddenly died. Anger, loneliness, have surfaced. Draining my energy. As I share with others Stop Pause and Pray. I now am doing this. So I am grateful for the opportunities that lay before me, the support of family, friends and Mary Morrissey and her staff, my clients, and most of my willingness to believe and to act upon this Grace and Love that lives within me to share with the world. I am also grateful for my husband and our beautiful daughter. I toast to yo, may God support you, keep you safe and inspired. Blessings and Happy New Year. Thank you for listening.

    The life I would love to live, involves moving a lot of mountains. The key word here is “attainable”, or is it? I have some clear visions, others need more details beyond what I can imagine.

Thanks for the inspiration,and encouragement on my journey to building “my field of dreams!”
