The new year comes with a lot of RESOLUTIONS. Many make plans or decide to change some aspects of their lives. People like me make a RESOLUTION to lose weight. Others may resolve to quit drinking, smoking, promiscuity etc. My question is, how many of us actually stick to our resolutions? Its just the second week of 2014 and I can tell you that most of us have forgotten that we made resolutions. Most guys resolved to quit smoking but have taken more cigarettes than food. Easiest ways to achieve your resolutions are: 1. Make just One Resolution – Most people make the mistake of trying to achieve too much or too many. The chances of success are greater when people channel their energy into changing just one aspect of their behaviour.
2. Plan about your resolution on time – Don’t wait until New Year’s Eve to think about your resolution. Last minute decisions tend to be based on what is on your mind at that time. Instead, take some time out a few days before and reflect upon what you really want to achieve.
3. Be specific – Think through exactly what you are going to do, where you are going to do it, and at what time. Unclear plans fail. For example, instead of saying that you will go running two days of the week, tell yourself that you will run on Sundays and Saturdays at 6am.
4. Be persistent – New habits take time to learn, and once in a while you will slip up and go back to the old you. People on diets might suddenly give in to temptation, or those trying to exercise more might not find the time to go to the gym for a week. Remember that everyone messes up from time to time. Don’t blame yourself if you falter, or allow the experience to make you give up. Let’s share our new year resolutions and get to know how many of us who are actually keeping their resolutions. Be Enlightened! Be Inspired!! Be Motivated!!!
