Improve Upon Each Year
Why do people bother to keep a New Year’s Resolution? Lazy people often arrange one, but never keep it up. For example, an advanced traveler will not leave his/her’s flight without knowing a destination. When the plane takes off, it is bringing his or her closer to their destination. The journey will have many obstacles, but if you try, you will be able to pull through it. A New Year’s Resolution is an easy way to set goals in your lifetime, because it is the start of a brand new year! You can forget about last year, because that is the past.
If you do not set any goals in your life, it’s just like a young boy riding on a bicycle in circles. Every night, he reaches his starting point. At sunrise, he does the same things throughout the day. Such as: brushing his teeth every morning, eating lunch, eating dinner, and taking a shower. They are the same exact events every day. So, if you want to keep living the same life, in ten years, you would probably be exactly where you were ten years ago!
In case that you don’t want to ride a bike in circles, you can always step on the brakes anytime, stop, and ride in a straight line. Moving forward might take a few adjustments or difficulties, but that is what makes it different then riding in circles.
To make it to your destination, your "bike" must bring you to one. Decide on a goal. Make sure this goal is realistic and can be achieved. (No riding on unicorns or petting a dinosaur.) But, you must also make sure that this goal is challenging. (Example: running a certain mile time, good grades, learning a language, learning a musical instrument, or losing weight) Not too challenging so as it is nearly impossible to take on, but challenging enough that it will require a decent amount of good work. After a few days or months, you will realize that your destination is getting closer and closer! At last, you will reach your destination and realize that it can be achieved if you stick to a New Year’s Resolution Goal!
