The Power of Writing Your New Years Resolutions on a Custom Canvas

In this video by Mary Morrissey, life coach, author of 2 best selling books and founder of Life Mastery Institute, she explains the power of writing down your goals & dreams backed up with scientific studies. With the new year upon us, we all understand how sometimes one can feel pressured to have a “New Years Resolution” that involves some big old transformation or life change. Along with that, comes the fear and doubt in the back of our minds, “What if I don’t succeed?”, “What will my friends think of me if I quit?”, “What if it’s too hard?”. We are here to help you! Writing down your goals on a custom printed canvas that YOU designed will tell yourself that you made a small investment to reach a bigger goal. Also, you can hang it somewhere you will see it everyday and be reminded- in style! You can print an old photo you like of yourself if you want to lose weight, use a code word, photo or symbol that only you know what it stands for, or simply type your goal(s) or inspirational quote out with a fun text and background, for example: “Positivity” if you are striving to be a more positive person. The possibilities are endless once you commit to believe in yourself and your ability and creativity!

Yes, Valentine’s day has a reputation for being an over-rated and pointless holiday to some- (even those who aren’t single!), but when you create a one of a kind custom canvas made specifically for your Valentine and you don’t have to break the bank or buy something you can find a million copies of across town it isn’t pointless or overrated by any means!
