The Truth About New Year’s Resolutions

The tradition of the ‘New Year’s Resolution’ is about as useless as a pen without ink. We use New Year’s to wait until an entire year has passed for an excuse to better ourselves, and statistics say after three weeks we revert back to our previous habits.

The most common resolutions tend to range from losing weight to attending church more than once a month. After all the excitement and the overused saying, “new year, new me” fades away, one’s motivation has faded with it.

Why is that?

The same reason people don’t start trying to better themselves until the week after New Year’s. Most people who develop New Year’s resolution are the same lazy, unsatisfied people who procrastinate their goals in the first place. While there are countless articles that give you tips on how to stick to your resolution, there’s only one thing that can truly help you: you.

Are you unhappy with some aspect of your life? If so, there’s tomorrow to change it. Why,

there’s even today to change it. Don’t hold your “new you” back, because if you do, you’ll find yourself on New Year’s Eve saying, “this is the year,” when that’s exactly what you said last year. We only get so much time, and no one knows when it is said to end. Make yourself happy and satisfied with your lifestyle.
In conclusion, don’t make resolutions. Make goals.
