How to keep your new year’s resolutions? It is a bit distressing to see that most of us haven’t, and many of us have given up trying. But why must it be like that?
Are you gonna wait for another 12 months to create your best life? We give up too easily at the first failure.
Maybe you put too much unreasonable pressure on yourself from your very first day. By giving up, you do not give your new year’s resolution any chance of passing that first step.
Bill Gates said: “It is fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.” In other words, you must celebrate your success when they arrive but do not throw away the reasons for your failures in the trash. They may contain information of great value.
Thomas Edison said: “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”
It is said that Edison was asked how he could bear to have so many failed experiments, and he said: I’ve learned a thousand possible ways not to make a light bulb. He has tried light bulb concepts so many times and still believed that the next will be the right one.
So, pick yourself up and do it again, but before you do, learn from your failure, think again and go. Think about your goal you’ve set for yourself.
Try to ask yourself these questions: Is it worth achieving these goals? Why have I set these goals? Am I happy with what I am doing? Do I need a plan so as to break big goals down into several smaller one?
Then be persistent and determined. Louis Pasteur said: “Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal: my strength lies solely in my tenacity.”
Make this new year the best one you’ve never had. Get closer to the person you wanted to be.
Start this new year in good conditions, that is, put all the “chances” on your side in order to realize your wildest dreams.
But remember one thing, if you do not try NOW, you will never do it because all your future decisions will always start NOW.
