New Resolution

It has become a norm, a tradition and a culture for people to make new resolutions at the beginning of a new year. Most people have their hearts set on the future, aiming to achieve higher, to do better, to quit habits and even to improve themselves.

Goals are often set, targets are made, but how many resolutions are kept and achieved? The more people make resolutions, the less they achieve them; this is exceptional to go-getters, determined and motivated individuals who pursue such resolutions without allowing the setbacks of life affect them.

The question which often arises is; is it wise to make new resolutions at the beginning of a new year? Some would say it is because it gives you a focus on what the year would look like and what to look forward to. Others would say; you’ve tried it before, why bother. The answer lies within each individual; if you are moved to make new resolutions, make them and work towards achieving them. If they are not achieved in the year, carry them over to the next year and strive to achieve them. The idea is to write out down the goals and aim to achieve them with positive action towards attainment.

“Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other”-Abraham Lincoln.
