‘He who says he can and he who says he can’t are both usually right’ by Confucius
It’s the new year and again time for all that “New year, new me” shenanigans which I adore so much.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s always nice to regroup and set aside some new goals you want to achieve. However, we should be careful not to let one day determine the rest of the year.
According to an article written by Amy Morin in Forbes only 8% of people make their New Year’s resolutions stick.
Yes, the statistics are shocking.
Therefore, when drawing up New Year’s resolutions try to focus more on your mental strength and get in touch with your feelings the rest will follow pursuit.
I recently watched a video clip of a four-year-old little girl explaining that there are 365 days available to us where we can choose to change. She also went onto to explain that every time we choose to stay calm, love instead of hate – it’s when we choose to do the right thing instead of just choosing to do the easy thing.
If a four-year-old already has the capacity to understand the concept of change and goals, there is no reason for us old folks not to get it.
So, while you setting up your New Year’s resolutions please be mindful of the other 364 days available to you where you can decide what action you going to take.
Be fully aware that everything you dream of or your goals you want to achieve is attainable. You should just adjust your mind set and know that everything you thought of is possible. It may not take a month or even a year but eventually if you truly want to achieve something you can.
And if in January you found yourself still not achieving your new set of goals still be proud of yourself because in the end it is all about trying not quitting when its gets difficult. Nothing worth doing was ever easy, unless you are one of the Kardashians… (I just had to, sorry to all the K-world supporters).
Returning to the moral of my story. Enjoy life, while you training for that summer body or looking for that ideal job take time to be relish the ride and remember be happy!
