New Year’s Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions are a common thing to begin thinking about this time of year.    We all wish to make our next year better than what is happening now.    I personally write resolutions about changes I would like to make regularly.

However, I have an issue with the nature of New Year’s Resolutions.   This is because I feel that people tend to make too large and broad proclamations of what they wish to accomplish.   In this they are dooming themselves to failure ultimately!    That is why I prefer to make lists of things that I would like to accomplish seasonally, or even monthly.    These lists contain easy and attainable goals that I build on throughout the year.

As I look back over the years, I see that I have made positive changes in my life and my circumstances by doing things this way.    If you wish to make a specific resolution for New Year’s, I suggest you being realistic!   Instead of stating that you want to loose five pounds, state that you would like to eat healthier, or do one more workout per week.   Instead of stating you want to have a set amount of money in the bank, state that you would like to find a better job and start applying!

With these small changes in narrowing down your focus to doable things we can actually succeed in making changes!   I hope that you have enjoyed this post, and that it may inspire you to look at New Year’s Resolutions differently.   Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
