On 1st January, why not start a “success jar”? In fact, you can change the name to the ‘happiness jar’, the ‘achievements jar’ or ‘joy jar’ or any mix of these names than resonate with you.
On 31st December (or early on 1st January), sit still, calm, relax and clear your head (meditate) and ask for answers as to what you truly would like for 2016.
Write down the answers that come to mind without question or taking any notice.
Afterwards, then write, with thought, stating what you would like to achieve in the year.
Put all your comments in the jar. Perhaps, add some crystals and some I-Ching coins, or anything else you associate with abundance. Alternatively, put the comments on a vision board.
Every morning, try to remember to add a coin to the jar whilst stating your affirmations.
When you’ve had a particularly good day, or done something that has really made you smile or appreciate, add a note to the jar stating what that was. Try and find something every day.
On 31st December, open the jar, count the money and read all the daily notes.
Start again for the following year.
It’s a great way to remember the small, perhaps insignificant things, which made you smile but also a reminder of where the time went.
One of my clients expanded on this, by emptying her jar whenever she felt low or depressed. Opening her jar and seeing her notes, made her realise what she had achieved so far, especially in comparison to what she had thought, or in comparison with her initial goals. It lifted her and motivated her to carry on.
Why not give it a try and see how it works for you?
Remember, you can start this sort of thing at any time in the year. You don’t just have to set resolutions and goals at the beginning of the year. Here and now is always a good time to start.
