Traditionally at the start of the year many people make New Year’s resolutions. These are commitments to change your life and can include everything from getting a new career, losing weight, taking that class you have always wanted to attend, and umpteen other changes. In fact, there are such a variety of resolutions that you can find something to change no matter what your walk of life.
But I would like to suggest that these resolutions are simply a waste of time. Before you get angry and quit reading, just hear me out.
I would like to suggest that resolutions are simply intentions that most people never act upon.
Take weight loss for example.
If you haven’t noticed, January is the month where you will find exercise machines and programs for sales in many stores across the country. Many people make a resolution that they will lose some weight. So, they buy the latest exercise machine from the store in January, and then by February those same intentions have been forgotten and so have their January purchases.
In a nutshell: New Year’s Resolutions are a waste of time.
Don’t give up hope.
I would encourage you to think of January in a different light. Instead of having good intentions of making changes in your life, I would suggest commit to making them.
Do it right now.
In fact, make a commitment today to change your life for the better. Don’t just wish it will be better – make it better.
This is your year – take control of your life.
