We are in that time of year when everybody seems to be having a massive freak out. A stressful season is upon us. There’s so much to do, and so little time to do it! You are thinking about the upcoming holiday season and a brand new year ahead. At the same time, you are probably still thinking about the past year. Part of what’s causing the panic is that you may feel you haven’t accomplished your goals for 2016. On top of worrying about all you need to do for the holidays, you are also worried about all you need to do, across your entire life

The holidays are the best time of year to take a big breath and calm down. We have an abundance of Sagittarius energy upon us now for the next few weeks, and Sagittarius is the big thinker, it’s all about the ‘big picture’. Use this time wisely. Instead of allowing your nervous energy to control you, plan that big picture. Again, this will all be about your mindset. Don’t think about what hasn’t been done. Instead, think about what you will do in the new year.

Your Mindset Determines Your Happiness

The biggest source of stress in your life right now is uncertainty. How will I do it all, and how will I pay for it all? These are your nagging thoughts and they are taking away fro the joy of the holidays. Stress and anxiety is a major part of the problem when it comes to planning the big picture. It’s very important for you to change your mindset. Instead of thinking of the negative, think about how exciting this big picture actually can be.

You will have to learn to be patient with yourself. You can only do so much in a day. Forget about what you haven’t done or have to do. Worrying about that is a waste of your time. Instead, think about what you will do and what you can accomplish. Make positive associations with a new beginning. When you do, you are more optimistic about life. The end of the year begins to look a lot brighter!

Where There’s a Will There’s a Way

How do you change your mindset and perspective? When you think in terms of ‘can’ or ‘can’t’, then you’ve already decided there is a slight chance you will not succeed. You can’t move ahead with these thoughts. It is a self-defeating prophecy. Cut the negative thoughts off as soon as they take hold and begin each plan, every day, with an ‘I will!.’ It might take some meditation to embrace the big picture and realize that each step you take is one more in accomplishing your goals. Work hard, but remember that you’re only one person tomorrow is a new day.

Whether you have to run errands, buy gifts, put on a holiday dinner, get a new job in the new year, or you want to secure a big relationship commitment, it’s all about your mindset. Use the Law of Attraction to your advantage. When you think and act with the confidence that what you want to happen, will happen for you. Visualize your goals coming to pass and remember that you are controlling all the factors you can. You won’t obsess and have so much anxiety.

Concluding Thoughts

Where there’s a will, there’s always a way, this is the message you will put out into the Universe. Stop thinking about maybe getting a new job, possibly starting a healthier lifestyle, and hopefully landing that relationship commitment this year. Instead, think about the job that you will have, the healthier body you will have, and what your new relationship level will look like. It’s going to happen for you if you are thinking of the big picture. What big picture dreams will happen in your life as this year ends and another one begins?
