“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”
– Zig Ziglar
It’s also a time when we reflect on the year gone by, and make plans for a better tomorrow as we get ready to start anew next year. This year, it’s also the final month of my Positivity Project, and I want to make this month’s posts extra special.
If you’ve ever read a personal development book, or any book on how to improve your life and achieve your goals, there were likely exercises that you were meant to do. If you’re like me, you read them, bookmarked them and intended to do them later, and then never did.
The thing about the principles you read about in those books is that they won’t make a bit of difference in your life if you don’t do the work. Likewise, if you’ve been reading along all year and learned the principles of the Law of Attraction that I’ve written about, but you haven’t applied them to your life, I’d say it’s a safe bet that you haven’t noticed anything manifesting.
I’ve come up with an idea for a daily practice that will help you apply the principles I’ve written about this year, with all the fun and festivity of this special month. If you’ve been practicing all along, this will just enhance your practice, and if you haven’t started, there’s no better time than the present to kick it into gear.
This is how it works – as I reflect on the year, I’ll revisit each of the major Principles of Positivity, and offer some kind of action item every day that will apply each principle to help you work towards a better tomorrow.
In the spirit of the season, I’ve adopted the style of The Twelve Days of Christmas, so, for The Thirty-One Days Of December, I invite you to do each exercise, and keep a list of your daily practice, but rather than being a cumulative practice like the song, you only need to do that day’s exercise each day. However, if you want to use a cumulative approach, that’s entirely up to you, there are no set rules. I’m calling it ‘French Hens & Turtle Doves.’
Every day, I’ll update my list, and share it with you here – I’ve also added a ‘Positivity 365’ menu for quick access to this post, and sub-menus for the 31 Principles of Positivity in review, and the French Hens & Turtle Doves page. You can share your practice in the comments on the French Hens & Turtle Doves page. Fellow bloggers, I encourage you to create your own French Hens & Turtle Doves post, and link to my page so we can echo each other’s ‘Song Of Positivity’ and create a wonderful chorus of holiday magic!
I’ve already made my list of the 31 Principles of Positivity, so let’s get started, shall we?
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
