Resolutions or Wish List – Which Do You Have?

And so the new year is finally here.

Towards the end of 2017, you probably went to a bookshop just to get a new pen and diary, for the sole purpose of writing out your resolutions for the year.

As inspiring and impressive as that is though, the sad thing is the fact that many of these resolutions go unaccomplished! This is largely because in setting new goals, many people tend to cry for the moon.

Now, imagine if your resolution were to be something you’d really love to do, something you’d be proud of, something that gives you a sense of fulfillment, wouldn’t it be so much easier? Realistic goals are easier to pursue.

So it turns out that people make one resolution after the other and at the end of the year, they realize that what they actually had a wish list with no shooting star to wish on.

The year is still fresh so those resolutions you have made can be changed to be more realistic ones. It could be that one thing you know you really should have done a long time ago. It doesn’t have to be a long list of things you know you really won’t do, it can be just one thing you really should and will do.

What you need now is action! Quit getting new diaries every year just to write down your resolutions and by the end of January, you have no idea where the diary is.

Go into the year with goals, not a wish list, go into the new year hoping to consciously improve on yourself, go into the new year not counting what you have but looking instead, at what you’ll have by the end of next year as a result of your actions.

It’s time to start acting on your resolutions!
