YOU 2012: Ignite the Flames of Desire

by Janice Taylor, Self-Help Artist

Whether you are into setting resolutions or not, there is a certain wave of energy that comes with the New Year.  It is a powerful energy that presents itself to you for its unmasking.

And in this unmasking, you will find that an opportunity exists to clear your slate, create a new mental state, and approach life with fresh eyes.


As we set our intention and goals for the New Year and dedicate ourselves to doing the best that we can do, it’s important to note that DESIRE is the key to our success.

Desire ignites the flames of passion.  Passion is the fuel that jets you toward your goals and your compelling future

By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it.
The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.
– Franz Kafka

When we set a goal, we need to ignite the desire that lives underneath the goal.   The best and most effective way to tap into this energy field called ‘desire,’ is to ask yourself,


“What will ____________ give me that I wouldn’t otherwise have.”

For Example: Let’s presuppose that your goal is to lose weight, and for the purposes of this mentalCISE (exercise for the mind), let’s say you want to permanently remove 50 pounds.

In order to ignite your passion, answer this question:
What will permanently removing 50 pounds give me that I wouldn’t otherwise have?

Your true motivation lies underneath those excess pounds.
  One of the reasons that people ‘lose weight’ and ‘find it’ again is because they are not clear on what they are really looking for; what their deeper desire might be.

Again, I ask …
What will losing weight give you that you wouldn’t otherwise have?


Gobs of happy energy?
Buckets of self-worth, self-respect and self-love?
A new fun and/or sexy wardrobe?

Tap into your deepest desires.  What is that you really want?  What passion lies underneath the pounds? What passion lies underneath the clutter?  Underneath the chaos?

Fill in the blank (with that which you want); answer the question, ignite your passion!

What will __________ give you that you wouldn’t otherwise have?
