Learn To Keep Your Resolutions
New Year is the only holiday that celebrates the passage of time. Perhaps that's
why, as the final seconds of the year tick away, we become introspective. Inevitably,
that introspection turns to thoughts of self-improvement and the annual ritual of
making New Year's Resolutions. The end of one year and the start of a new one is
a great opportunity to re-assess our lives and to make new plans. As a new year
approaches, it almost seems like we can start all over again. We can finally become
that wonderful, productive, healthy, happy person we've always wanted to be. The
trouble is, the enthusiasm to make changes, especially with exercise and diet, tends
to fade once we realize we can't change everything overnight.
To make lasting changes, there are three things we can do
to make our resolutions work all year long:
- Adjust our attitude.
- Change our lifestyle.
- Come up with a plan for success.
One must learn to keep your resolution, else it's gone with the winds. I am sure
that you too in the past have made rash and hasty New Year resolutions like excelling
in particular subjects or getting up early and learn the formula of Chemistry or
only going out on Saturday evening if all pending tasks have been completed. But
thee minute a friend calls you for a weekend party you cannot resist yourself. You
return late and get up late resulting in dismantling your mindset and daily routine.
So, you should realize that changing plans into actions is most essential.
A word of warning:
New Year resolutions are "ten a penny" easy come, easy go.
You make New Year resolutions because it is easy to do so. Easy equates to good
and achievable in your minds. Easy is actually a total waste of time except for
a party game, and that is all most new year resolutions are good for.
WISH YOU A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR
Once you have decided on your New Year Resolutions, make sure that they stay at
the front of your mind. Print a copy of your new year’s resolutions
and stick them somewhere prominent, like a notice board or at the front of your
diary. That way you can check your progress throughout the year and by the end of
2010, you should be ready to move on, set new objectives, and achieve even greater
