As this year draws to an end and a new year begins, most of us make promises, with all good intentions, to live a better life. This is the year we’re going to lose twenty pounds. This is the year we’re going to start our own business. This is the year we’re going to keep an exercise program. This is the year we’re going to eat healthier. But then before we know it, we fall back into our old ways, habits and thoughts that keep us year after year in the same place.

Keeping your good intentions and your promises to yourself takes commitment, perseverance and active change. No matter who you are, where you came from or where you are in your life right now, you can turn your life around. YOU CAN LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE NOW. You and only you hold the golden key that can open the world for you and transform your life into the miraculous journey it was meant to be.

LIVING YOUR BEST LIFE is not up to someone else to deliver. My mother always said “the way you make your bed is the way you’ll sleep in it.” And the way you’ll make your life, is the way you’ll live in it. Your life is up to you. You are the only one who can rule and regulate and shape and mold every second of your life. You have the control to dream, imagine, create and achieve. You hold within you endless possibilities and unlimited potential to go as far as you can imagine, or not.

What are your hopes and aspirations? What are your dreams? Your desires? What is your passion? Can you imagine your dream-come-true-life? Can you imagine its greatness? Can you feel yourself living inside your imagined dreams? Can you get past the fears that are keeping you in a life of mediocrity? Can you get past the thoughts that are limiting you rather than expanding?

It’s up to you to choose the thoughts that will manifest a life full of health, happiness and prosperity. It’s up to you to remove all the I can’t…I don’t know how…I’m not good enough…Smart enough…Lucky enough…I don’t have enough money…I’m not skinny enough…I hope someday…Maybe…You’ll need to implement a plan. Put a foundation in place, and take actions that will meet your dreams. Every new moment is an opportunity for the greatest expression of you. Every new moment is an opportunity to reach a step closer to your dream. And every new moment is a blessing to live from a higher level of consciousness. You own the choice of your life.

The barriers you have set in front of you are enormous. They have been with you, if you’re like me, most of your life. You probably don’t even know that they exist; they are such a huge every day part of who you are. Finding, exposing, and letting go of these barriers is the only way you have to accomplish the goal of LIVING YOUR BEST LIFE.

In this New Year I will show you how to embrace your life and live to your highest and fullest potential. I pray that I inspire, support, and move you in creating the life you deserve and LIVING YOUR BEST LIFE NOW!

Happy New Year and many blessings
