Where Do We Go from Here? or It's Never To Late!

It’s your choice, it’s all up to you…

Happy New Year! Just in case no one has wished you one yet. So, where do we go from here you might ask. It’s just another day. We’ve just started another new year, just like we’ve done every year about this time as far back as you and I can remember. I guess the difference is in the way you look at it. Have you thought about any resolutions? You know, something in your life that you would like to change and you’re just looking for a good time or place to stop or start. The New Year is a great place for this, a time of remembrance, a turning point if you will. I hereby or herewith resolve___________ _____ ________ - then you just fill in the blanks. See, that wasn’t so bad, was it? Usually the hardest part is the getting started.

It’s not a goal unattainable...

Wikipedia defines a New Year’s resolution as: … a   commitment   that an individual makes to a personal goal, project, or the reforming of a   habit.” Also saying, “men achieved their goal 22% more often when they engaged in   goal setting, (a system where small measurable goals are being set; such as, a pound a week, instead of saying "lose weight"), while women succeeded 10% more when they made their goals public and got support from their friends.”   No matter how you do it, It’s not a goal unattainable.  But like everything else in life that’s worthy of accomplishment, it takes a little work.  The goal has to be worth the effort to succeed.

Have you ever made a resolution and kept it?

a starting point

Maybe you say, “Why bother, I’m happy with my life just the way it is…” Who are you trying to kid? There is no one on the planet that would not do something differently if they had the opportunity, so if everyone else would change something in their lives, why not just admit it, you too would do some things differently if you got the chance or had the motivation. That’s why most people make resolutions at the first of each year; it’s a time of rebirth or a starting point, a fresh start. But some things are hard to change and some habits are hard to break. Anytime you seek a change in desire, it calls for a change in behavior. No one said it would be easy and if you could talk to some people that started making changes in their lives just two days ago some will say it’s impossible, while others will say they made the choice and they are going through with their decisions to change. Some will join support groups. Some have family members that have been right where you are right now and will encourage the efforts.

you're the one to benefit for it…

Well, you might say, “the New Year is over…” and I would say, “just by a couple of days.” It’s still close enough and if you are serious about the change, Go for It, you’ll be the one to benefit from it…

Hi Samson! Happy new year to you too!! It truly is never too late. I said that too in my new years hub, only it related to "vision". It's never too late to find God's vision for you. That could line up with a resolution couldn't it. I resolve to persevere in the vision God has given me! Have a blessed and full of promise new year Samson my friend!

Happy New Year to you too, Sam. I, personally, don't make any resolutions for the new year. My first 2011 hub is about why.

God Bless.

Happy new year samsons1,

It is indeed the best time to start what we've been aspiring to do and also make fresh commitments on broken resolutions. Your article also reminded me of things I truly would do differently if given a second chance. Thanks for the cool hub. God bless
