New Year Resolutions fade away, but goals never die.
New Year Resolutions
It’s the fourth day of the new year and everyone is hitting the gym, cutting out chocolate, and professing their feelings as honestly as they can. Those are New Year’s Resolutions, but what about the real goals you’re after? What about the monumental tasks that will change your life in the long-term?
This year, I plan to live a positive, happy life, but I’m also working to improve my career and get more clients. I don’t know how I’m going to do that quite yet, but it’s all about who you know. My goal is to make one connection with someone who can further my career. Who is that? Only time and effort will show me the truth.
Of course, resolutions are important and they make us feel like we’re going to accomplish something, but don’t forget about them just because January is over. Make a goal every day, no matter how small, and figure out how you can achieve it. That’s how you live your life and that’s how you learn who you are and make things better.
Understand what your top priority is and set one small goal to help you work towards the end game. Then, keep all those little resolutions on hand and follow through with them as often as you can. Many people give up on resolutions because they forget or they’re too unattainable. Write them down on a piece of paper and stick that paper somewhere that you’re always going to look at it.
Constantly remind yourself that you don’t have to conquer the world to feel successful. Happiness should be your main goal, and that’s defined differently for each person. Take your time, as there is no set schedule for living a fulfilling life. Get that promotion, confess your love to your crush, or buy yourself a car. Do all those things in your own time and appreciate every little moment on the journey to get there.
Understand the big picture, but constantly remind yourself that the one life you’re going to get is happening RIGHT NOW. Don’t wait around for something to happen to you. Make things happen. Make this year one of the best you’ve ever had on your own time. Take back the control. Don’t focus on what you’re “supposed” to do or what everyone else is doing. Be the best version of yourself and find the self-worth buried deep in your heart.
I know this is a bit of a rant, but I want people to feel like they’re not alone and that everyone has their struggles. If you take everything step by step without worrying about judgement, you can have a life that you’re proud to say is yours. Make your own rules and live each day like it’s the adventure you’ve been waiting for.
Happy New Year!
