Expressing a list of new year’s resolutions is an appropriate way to honor the opportunities for growth that come with a new beginning. Resolutions are your seeds of change. When you plant them, feed them and nurture them with commitment, they materialize as intended.

Or do they?

If you have made resolutions in past years that have never come to fruition, consider this:


When you plant seeds in a garden, how do you get them to grow into plants that bear fruit? Apart from actively putting forth effort to tend your garden, what factors aid or inhibit growth? Does the position of your garden with respect to sunlight exposure have any bearing on the growth of your plants? Is the quality of the soil a factor? Is the purity of the water consequential?

Yes! The confluence of these elements holds the power to make or break your outcome.

So, when you are “planting your seeds” for the new year based on your resolutions, it is helpful to consider the factors that impact the growing process.

Think of your beliefs as the sunlight on your garden. Without the proper light, your garden simply will not grow. The same is true of beliefs. If your beliefs do not shine light on your resolutions, they will not come to pass. If you fully believe you are worthy or that you truly are able to meet your goal, you will make way for success.

Think of your mindset as the soil. If your soil is rich and nutrient dense, your seeds stand the best chance of growing into healthy plants that bear fruit. The same is true of your mindset. If it lacks the support and fortification needed to nurture growth, then your resolutions will not materialize without great challenge. When you infuse your mindset with motivational thoughts, you will position yourself to achieve success.

Think of your emotions as the water that feeds your plants. If you are sustaining your resolutions with toxic emotions based in fear, anger and frustration, you are not pumping pure fuel into your growth process. Emotions based in love, joy and compassion are fuels that accelerate growth with great efficiency.

If you have identified your resolutions and planted seeds for the new year, take a second look and make sure you have set yourself up for success. Pay close attention to your beliefs, thoughts and emotions serving to support (or sabotage) your outcomes. Make adjustments, if need be, to create remarkable personal growth in the coming year.
