The 2015 New Year's Resolution That We Should All Make


Every year millions of people, declare a New Year’s resolution. And in 2014, can you guess what the number one resolution was? Don’t worry, I will tell you. In 2014 the number 1 resolution was to lose weight.



With the New Year, comes new hopes and aspirations.  The New Year spurs a brief injection of motivation. For some, that motivation spawns results. For others, that motivation spurs fading emotions of excitement until next year rolls around. And they can make the same resolution all over again.

45% of Americans usually make New Year’s Resolutions. And only 8% are successful in achieving their resolution

A measly 8%.

But hey don’t fret. There is still hope for all of us who want to stick to our resolution. To do so, we must commit to two resolutions in the new year.

The first resolution is the one we all really care about ( assuming there is only one). The second one that all should apply to themselves is to stop bullshi%$#

BS'ing and making lame excuses will always lead to failure no matter what resolution you make. You can adhere to your resolutions with a little persistence and sticking to the following tips:

Vision

Sit down and think to yourself or speak aloud what it is that you’re trying to change in 2015. Once you have that, write it down. And visualize it every day. Always reminding yourself that there will be an end date.  

Sacrifice

You must decide now at this very moment that the thing you want to do is worth making all types of sacrifice. Whether it is to stop binge eating, infrequently hitting the gym, partying too much, not being focused at work or self-development, etc. You must innately be in charge of your own future, and be willing to kill out negative things in your life, in order to get to where you want.

Meticulous plan keeping

Get a note pad and write out a plan. Or get online and use tools like as Google calendar, Outlook, or Evernote to write down your plans. Make sure you have the end date of your resolution marked off. This way you will be more inclined to meet the due date. Create a punishment for every time you miss a milestone. And stick to your plans!

Stop Procrastinating

Like Nike, you need to “Just do it.” After you’ve made a plan with an end date in mind. You must change any mentality of “I will do it later” to “I will do it now," and get it out of the way. Procrastination is like cancer. It will metastasize into other parts of your life. You must destroy it, before it destroys you.
Take these few helpful tips. And make yourself proud when 2016 rolls around. Have a Happy New Year!
