This New Year Make a Real Resolution

Updated on January 4, 2012

Do you know what a resolution means? We can tell a lot about what you decide as your New Year Resolution, is it to lose weight well then you might be headed on a wrong path if you are doing it for the wrong reasons. Most self help resources suggest that we should have a specific goal, probably so that we do not get distracted. But eventually one must pay attention to those intellectual thoughts or should grow as an individual out of the physical aspirations and be more focused on what really matters.

With each New Year should come a resolution to be a better person, what good is a resolution that helps in losing weight but does not helps an individual gain a better self image, be more confident. You will end up losing weight but wont gain a gram of self confidence. And quite a New Year resolution it will be that will leave you skinny with no self worth and next year you will be wanting to gain that weight back on.

You should choose your New Year Resolution based on self introspection, something that will make you get more value from life. Dig deep in yourself find the basic attitude and realize what is your basic nature, hunt down that piece of attitude that might be making you feel any less of yourself.

Or you could just simply say, well I like to do this and I would like to do it even more. And that becomes your resolution. The whole point of having an actual New Year Resolution is that is something "you" want and not somebody else. Just because a celebrity picked something as their New Year Resolution does not qualifies it to be the best choice for you, you could get inspired but ask yourself do I really want to endorse this for the next 365 days of this year.


From 1915 in the image above to the image on the right in 2012, some are able to get the true essence of making a New Year Resolutions and so can you, try this (most likely you wont): just look at yourself in the mirror and give yourself the reassurance in clear vocal words that I will make the right choices for you.

And maybe when you will resolve for a New Year Resolution after giving it such a serious thought, you might just be able to follow it through.

      Resolutions are a great idea. I have not made one since I was about 12. I want to try it again though.
