Why wait for New Years Day to make your resolutions for happiness and success? Why not resolve today to direct your life into the greater happiness and success available to you?

So many do not experience all of the happiness and success they desire because they blame someone else for their problems instead of resolving to become all they can be and to do all they can do for all the happiness and success they want. Their fear of another's power distracts them from a more effective use of their own power.

The 7 resolutions that follow are designed to protect you from that all too common, self-defeating pattern. They apply the deeper success secrets applied by the most powerful, accomplished individuals of all time. They are drawn from what we can call The Universal Laws of Happiness and Success.

One of these laws states that visualizing yourself doing or accomplishing something directs your inner power to make it happen. As you read each of the following self-help resolutions for greater happiness and success, pause for a moment to visualize yourself actually practicing it.

While reading, viewing or listening to the news, the instant I hear a message that makes me doubt my power to achieve total happiness or success I will immediately turn the message off.

I will remain alert to notice when I am blaming any individual or group for any danger, difficulty or lack of happiness or success in my life, so that I can instantly drop that dis-empowering mindset and refocus on doing all I can for myself and my loved ones.

Every day I will form visions of my happiness and success and take action aimed at turning those visions into reality.

I will pursue and cultivate relationships with individuals who demonstrate high levels of happiness and success, based on the principle that people become like those they spend time with.

I will not blame the current economic climate for my attitude or situation, but rather accept total responsibility for both and trust in the presence of golden opportunities to achieve boundless prosperity, happiness and success.

I will remain alert to recognize and let go of any attitudes or expectations within me that make me doubt my power to achieve all the happiness and success I desire.

I will make the most of every moment rather than using a slow period or a delay as an excuse to become lax in my commitment to finding a way right here and now that leads to my next higher level of happiness and success.
