Many a times, we make a lot of resolves,determinations, decisions, for the new year ahead
but unfortunately, we seldom meet those
expectations. Usually, we feel bad about this and
intend to make up as the new year goes by. We all
know what happens at the end of the year!
It is not enough to write down Resolutions (It’s OK,
I’ve written mine too), we should more importantly
work on them, and we have to do that
intentionally. Yes. Make yourself do it! See it as an
obligation and as though you are accountable to
someone at the end of the year. And indeed we
are. To ourselves and to God.
I’ll also love to add that resolutions to be made
should be achievable. Don’t make a hundred
resolutions. Don’t set too many goals. Of course
growth is gradual, so you’ve got to be steady. Do
“a few big things” and you’ll be surprised at the
progress you’ll make in the new year.
The final and most important point I want to make
is that you shouldn’t wait till the new year comes
before you start working on your resolutions.
That’s the mistake most of us make. We’ve got to
start (practising) now, so that when the new year
unravels, it would have been a part of us already.
One man after being advised to stop taking alcohol
said he knew he was doing the wrong thing and
would stop immediately we get into 2017 since it’s
part of his new year resolutions! Funny isn’t it?
“Why not now?” You would ask. And that’s the
same question we all should work on.
Start actualizing your New Year Resolutions now!
I wish everyone a blissful and prosperous new year
