However, many resolutions we may make during the turn of the year, somehow we manage to unwittingly back our trucks to the same parking lot that we occupied the year before or probably the decade prior to that. I’ve got nothing against making New Year resolutions, except that I can never stick to them— unlike my Rotarian friend Alex Garden who’s been making physically challenging resolutions ever since he turned 50—-and accomplished them every year! In an article posted by Deepak Chopra on LinkedIn titled ‘You must find a place inside yourself where nothing is impossible’, the self-help guru suggests that we need to change our mindsets instead of making New Year resolutions so that we don’t react in the same way as we did earlier. Our mindset is the well- programmed lens through which we see life and filter certain experiences while censoring others. It’s the way we are internally wired. While changing the wiring is not easy, a conscious effort to stop reacting to those triggers that puts us on a slow boil or gets us in a tizzy worrying about silly things, has a huge pay-off. The mind guru suggests that life was never meant to be a struggle. When you encounter the silent depth of your mind and ask questions that need an answer, you realise that some of the problems simply vanish into the ether, while others present new solutions. We always have the answers within. Elizabeth Gilbert, celebrated author of ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ whose latest offering is ‘Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear’ says the ideas and answers are there in the ether looking for a human collaborator – regardless of whether you are an artist, an engineer, scientist, businessman, an architect or a writer. This, I discovered as I worked on a recent book tour of the biography, titled ‘An Uncensored Life’ published by HarperCollins that I’ve penned on the life of UK-based human rights campaigner and women’s champion Zerbanoo Gifford. Whilst trying to arrange book readings and events at various venues in India and Auckland during the holiday season, I’d often come across an obstacle course. The first time I asked the subject of my biography, the founder of the ASHA leadership centre in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, how we could solve it, Ms Gifford responded by flipping the question back to me. She never answered my questions and would always turn it back to me, which in a strange way helped me to find answers. I’d meditate on the problem and inevitably find a solution pop up in the mind’s eye. It was a crash course in unleashing the creativity within that we are sometimes fearful of unlocking. After being a part of 12 events across two countries in less than 30 days, I can safely vouch it works. As Mr Chopra suggests, a new mindset paves the way for a broad range of life changes. It creates an expanded awareness. Even as we live in an age of distraction, it pays to be aware that adjusting a tiny lens in our mindset brings with it serendipity and creative solutions that are guaranteed to overcome life’s little hiccups. POINT TO PONDER New Year, new mindset It’s the way we are wired. Maybe it’s time to change some of those fault lines. FARIDA MASTER COMMENT Do you make New Year resolutions and stick to them? We’d love to hear: email@example.com facebook.com/ timesonlinenz Flaming heck! The driver of a light commercial truck had a lucky escape after the unit’s cab went up in flames. The driver, believed to be from an East Tamaki company, is understood to have called his boss to advise him the truck was overheating last Thursday. He was told to pull the light truck over. He did so on Ti Rakau Drive around 1pm near the Eat Asian food precinct at the Hub at Botany. He managed to get out of the vehicle with paperwork before the truck’s cab was consumed by fire. An electrical fault is thought to be to blame. Traffic heading west seemed to have only been hampered for a short time while police and the fire service dealt with the matter.
