New Year Resolutions do we really need them?

Every New Year we set goals to be more successful, happy, lose weight and so on.

But come on, let's face it, it never works or lasts, does it?

For some reason, we are wired to stick to the same old things. Whether it's eating too much, not doing enough exercise or being plain lazy, it seems we can easily embrace our bad ways, but for some reason never ever take on the good.

I wonder why that is?

At least it does explain why successful people keep on being successful. They are brought up in a family environment that doesn't seem to know the word failure.

As each generation grows up, they just follow in the path of their parents who may be rich or very hard workers.

Let's face it, we are a product of our parents. Whichever way they live their lives, we tend to follow on, and it's not easy to change.

We all know the old saying, do not change your ways too much, otherwise, you will fail.

Well sorry, but for me, it's the other way round.

I have tried that. Now it's time for a real change.

Overhaul those Goals!

My idea this year is to completely change my way of doing things. I am going to try to get rid of the failure stuff and go for the successful instead.

For starters, my lifestyle is going to change in the way I get up, go to bed and so on. That way I will give myself more time to write and do my work.

If you want to be drastic in your New Year Resolutions then follow my ideas below to get started.

And don't forget. This is about you. Nobody else.

If you fail, then it's down to you.

Sounds harsh? It's just me kicking myself in the butt!

Completely change everything! (Well sort of!)

  1. Go out and buy a large colorful notebook and pen. Sounds nuts? It's great for getting your mind in the right place to go for it.
  2. Forget the old, 'Only change a little thing.' NO! This has got to be drastic.
  3. Get up earlier each day. This is if you are not working. We tend to stay in bed longer than necessary. No more. Get off your butt and start your new year!
  4. Set and keep to a time every single day to do the thing you are planning on learning, losing weight, writing, etc. And KEEP to it!
  5. If it's a diet, change into something bright and baggy to do your exercise. So much of change is pure psychology. If it looks good, it feels good!
  6. Write and write again. If you are anything like me, you clean up, dither about, in fact, anything instead of sitting down and writing. If I am stuck, I give up. NO more!
  7. Go out for a walk at least twice a day if you work from home. Walk around the block, chat with people. It is so easy to get stuck indoors especially when it's raining. Move your backside, and get some fresh air. Then the energy will come.
  8. Phone your friends. Don't leave it to them to plan an evening out. Make time to meet new people. Sometimes friends are waiting for you to get in touch.
  9. Plan an evening out at least once a week. If you cannot afford it, go cheap. All chip in for the cinema, or maybe a day trip somewhere. Splitting the money between three or four of you cuts the price right down.
  10. And last but not least. Do not allow yourself to get stuck in that old rut again. It is so easy to do. I am actually writing a list of what I do 'wrong' and what to do 'right' before I even start. It's amazing just how much mental junk I am carrying around!

Embrace the change!

And I am going for it big time. I have fed up with my lifestyle, and trying to change just a little doesn't work for me.

I forgot to say, I am also planning on changing my job, or jobs. I want to do something completely different.

When and if I manage to get that job, I will be back and updating!

Wish me luck!
