Oprah Winfrey offers her fans so much wisdom about how to create abundance. She says, “We can’t become what we need to be by remaining what we are.”

We must resolve any difficulties from the past to truly embrace the new year. We can’t expect to be happy if we keep on doing things that make us unhappy. We need to open our minds to the amazing ideas that are waiting to be realized, just as our bodies require nutrients and exercise to flourish.

Create Abundance by Zhang Xinyue is full of wisdom and resources concerning the benefits of meditation. It talks about how to change your destiny.

Set aside some time to reflect on the previous year. Beginning with January of last year, think about the choices you made and how those worked out. Write down changes you could make to improve this year.  Work forward, month by month. Try not to pass judgment or linger too long on any circumstance but pay attention to anything that elicited an emotional response. It’s critical to accept whatever has occurred. You won’t be able to change anything, so let go of all your regrets and “what ifs.”

Oprah says: “Turn your wounds into wisdom.”

She also reminds us to be grateful for what we have and where we are in life. Things could be worse.

Zhang Xinyue includes this quote from her book, Create Abundance:

“Imagine intently the kind of life so desirable as to make you happy. Concentrate on what you are desirous of. Get a sense of the moment when you have achieved your goal. That’s all you should do.”
