Most often we are confused between so many things and end up choosing a wrong or impossible resolution for us. There are so many things that we want to improve in our life but practically it is not possible to change everything overnight. If you choose a resolution to change yourself completely this year, you will end up breaking that resolution this year too.
Let’s focus on one or max two goals at a time as a new year resolution. This list will help you to clear your confusion and choose the new year resolution that will help you to achieve success in life.
This is the most common and widely popular resolution among youths all over the world. But the reality is, it is also the resolution that breaks the most.
We all want to get in shape and remain healthy, hence joining a gym is the most favorite resolution. But most of us break this resolution in the first month itself because it is not that easy, it requires a strong dedication and discipline.
On the first day of the new year, we are all excited and sign up for a gym membership, continue for a week or two then stop. Joining a gym is easier than continuing it. Let’s take a smart resolution this year. Instead of just joining a gym, your resolution should be joining and continue the gym.
Stop wasting Time
Time is one of the most precious things you have and we all waste our time unknowingly or unintentionally. If you want to do something greater in life you have to start utilizing your time more wisely.
Stop wasting time doesn’t mean stop having fun but it is about proper time management. Manage a proper schedule for all your daily work and stick to it. Limit the time you spend playing games or watching TV or sleeping or scrolling social media.
This resolution will help you to make you realize that you are spending more than the required time on the activities that are not going to help you in your career. If you want to get success in life this resolution should be in your priority list this year.
Stop Wasting Money
Lack of money is a big problem in modern society. With so many options and lucrative deals available in the market every day, we often buy things that we regret later. We buy things we don’t really need just because of some lucrative deal or because it provides us temporary happiness.
If you have this habit of wasting money unnecessary than this resolution is for you. It can save you a huge amount of money when you look back. Understand the difference between want and need. Take a resolution this year that you will shop only for the things you need and not for the things you want.
Wants are never-ending but needs are limited.
