A letter to the readers of my newsletter:
It took me a while to think about the article I wanted to write, as it is the last newsletter of the year. However, I am feeling differently about it now. So I decided to write you a letter instead.
You see, what has been troubling me is that I see so many well-known personalities in the world or influencers as it were, telling people all over social media that they do not need to do anything such as new year's resolutions, or new year plans. And that they have a right to be here, and they can just exist. While it is true that the majority of people in the world make these plans or resolutions and do not stick by them, telling people they do not need them, is giving people permission to not be accountable for anything, now that's another story altogether.
Maybe these famous people do not realise the impact or power of their words and how they can influence a person into action or inaction. They even say, just because it is 2020, we shouldn't be pressured to make plans. I don't know what to think of these "feel good" words.
Unfortunately, life is just not about feeling good, life is difficult, and that is the reality. And if we do not have anything to look forward to, we can easily be brought into a state of inertia, yes we are that vulnerable. And social media is not helping when they give people permission to lag.
There was huge pressure from society in the past decades on people to perform, i.e. they must make plans, they must achieve results and so on. And I suppose people are sick of conforming and being pressurised, but to move into the other extreme of not doing anything is just as bad!
My suggestion to you is that you do need to be accountable to yourself, if not for society or people around you, at least do it for yourself.
If big goals sound scary to you, make plans at least for the day or week, and then extend that out to the month. And maybe if you want, extend that to a year.
I feel if goals are not scary enough, they are not real goals because it only means we are still in our caves -- in our comfort zone.
Personally, there are several caves I need to get out of, and I want to celebrate that with you when I reach those milestones within 2020. So watch out for my celebratory emails!
Before I end off, I want to remind you that if you have been thinking of joining my INNER SOUL SCHOOL where we have classes on meditation, ascension, emotional/mental development, life skills etc. The Christmas discount for the monthly subscription is ending on 31 Dec.
