If setting goals and resolutions keep you focused and work for you then by all means keep using them! However, if goals seem too rigid or too restrictive and leave you feeling cold/bored/unmotivated, perhaps using vision and intention affirmations will help to inspire you. Below are some examples of how you can turn typical goal statements into a more positive, attractive intention affirmation:

Goal: I will lose 10 pounds by 1/1/2003.

Affirmation: I will look terrific when standing naked in front of my mirror and love how clothes look/feel on my body.

Goal: I will find a new job this year.

Affirmation: I will focus on what I love to do regularly and seek opportunities that allow me to express my strengths, values.

Goal: I will make $125,000 this year.

Affirmation: Money will not be an issue in my life. I will do what brings me joy and know that the money will follow.

The key here is to think about what you really, really, really want and express it in a way that is meaningful to you...a way that takes the pressure off while creating a vision that will propel you forward.
