New Year, New Outlook 2k16 Mind, Body and Soul Series Part 1 of 3

This piece is about designing a new way of thinking for the coming year. It is about reinventing the mind body and soul.  I will begin with the mind.

It’s a new year and it’s time for a new...

Lets not go and say “new you” because You will always be you and part of being You is embracing every part that makes YOU- a unique soul with a divine purpose. What can evolve and change is the way we think.  Our mind is a powerful tool and when used to its fullest potential, can lead to things that you would have never imagined. The mind (brain) is the most complex part of the human body. Everything we think and do is powered by the mind.  You are capable of so much more but in order to achieve you must believe in YOUrself and your mission. Begin by taking control of the way you THINK.  Reshape the way you think about your goals, if you didn’t achieve the results you wanted, get back up and approach them in a different way and believe you CAN.

Did you know?

45% of Americans usually make a New Year resolution and only 8% successfully achieve it ( Now, think about that. How can you be part of that 8%? That all depends on Mind power!

“A man is but the product of his thoughts - what he thinks, he becomes”- Mahatma Gandhi

Close your eyes and envision the life you dream of. What are you doing? Where are you living? Who is surrounding you? Are you happy?

Now, hold on to that thought. Hold on tight and open your eyes. What is before you now? Are you currently happy with your life?  Are you where you want to be? Are you living your purpose?

For the last couple of years I have made it a personal goal to work on the way I think. The way I react to any situation and most importantly the way a react to others. I have spent quite some time reflecting on my thoughts and how to take control of the way they make me feel. Believe it or not, the state of mind that you are in will create the way you live. I highly recommend a book that helped me put my thoughts in perspective,  “you can be happy no matter what” by Richard Carlson, Ph.D.  Read it and enjoy.


Whatever desires, goals, accomplishments you wish to achieve believe that it can be done.  YOU have the power to create your life, happiness and YOU are ultimately the way YOU think.  So, take control of your thoughts and transform them into beautiful realizations.  Whatever you envisioned can become your present.  You can begin by designing a plan, create a list, set goals, and constantly remind yourself of where you want to be. Goals are accomplished when written down. According to Forbes, those who wrote down their goals accomplished significantly more than those who did not. Try this, and take it one goal at a time.

Make 2016 your best year yet, transform the way you think about your life, yourself, others, the world and everything that surrounds you. Your mind is a unique puzzle, only you can put it together and the journey is finding those pieces to make the puzzle whole. Enjoy the journey and make it count! Cheers to 2016!
