DO NOT CREATE A RESOLUTION
Doing away with a set of 10 New Year’s Resolution, would be the best thing you might be doing for a successful 2019. In a layman context of a resolution, is to resolve by finding a solution. What kind-of-solution would you want to be finding in 2019 when you have not made any steps as yet? “Although we know for 2018 you have made an awful amount of missed-steps”.
Instead of putting down these scam phrases year after year as a “New Year’s Resolution” and numbering them from 1 to 10, which we all know till the very end of the year 2019, we might not even be able tick one off the list when the year comes to an end! (the editor is referring to herself and not you – the successful people out there).
Let’s be practical and transparent with ourselves (inner reflection people!).
Instead of a list resolutions, let’s commit to a CHANGE. A change is when one is determined to do things differently, making a radical decision which is unlike the old. When the mind is set into change-mode, the will comes into play next, followed by actions and then positive successful outcome. Isn’t this a more realistic solution to the new year’s ahead? Instead of the traditional writing down a wish-list and never to follow up again comes the 2nd of January?
Tell yourself to MOVE FORWARD. Just like the year itself, you leave behind a number and you move forward by adding another. Moving forward is the way to go. Having reflection is good.
It helps you to “identify” what you have done wrong. DO NOT REPEAT THE MISTAKE! Somethings cannot be resolved. You need to move forward and not repeat the same mistake. That is the reason why archiving history is so important, it is not to follow things of the past, but to move forward and change what is in the future.
DON’T JUST PROMISE – DO IT
Don’t just be writing down 10 promises of what you want for your life in the new years ahead. DO IT! Action speaks louder than words. You have got to make it happen. Just do it (not a Nike ad) but there is so much truth in such simple words. Promises of new year’s resolution list are never kept and are ignored year after year. Aren’t you tired of that?
FOCUS ON SHORT TERM.PLAN ON LONG TERM
Do not create a New Year’s Resolution where you feel it’s a burden even before actually stepping into 2019. Instead, focus on short term goals where you are instantly rewarded with positive results. This will help encourage you to then plan well for long term, after seeing the results and rewards. Perhaps you can break your goals by quarterly basis. At the end of every 3 months you would be amazed how far you actually have come.
WITH EYES WIDE OPEN
Let us plant two firm feet into 2019, looking ahead with both EYES WIDE OPEN. Not with a list of new year’s resolution which will be put away just as soon as the new year’s begin. Lookout for greater opportunities of improvements. It sure will be an interesting year ahead. Hence DO NOT CREATE A RESOLUTION! But look forward to the CHANGES in the year ahead, MOVE FORWARD and look back only to learn from the past, DO IT and do not only make empty promises to yourself, and live your life in HD (High-Defination), it truly is a wonderful world that we live in!
EYEWIL WISHES EVERYONE A HAPPY 2019 NEW YEARS AHEAD!
