Can you believe that it is a new year already? It just seems that last year was just around the corner and this new year was aways away. The old adage that time marches on is certainly one of the principle truths that we experience in life. You can not escape time.
So with that in mind and the new year here, it begs the question as to what goals and resolutions have you deemed worthy to make a go at?
I did a bit of research about how best to successfully accomplish the aspirations and intentions that have been so recently made. What is the point of making goals and then not obtaining them? So with that in mind, here are four fundamental concepts that provide a good foundation to helping one reach there goals set:
One: Make your goals measurable
Two: Make them realistic
Three: Make sure it comes from you
Four: Don’t make too many
Sounds easy right?
Well, that is the strategy! By being straightforward and uncomplicated, it allows for the best chances for one to obtain their particular goals and new year resolutions. Who doesn’t want things to be straightforward and uncomplicated right?
So with that in mind, I will share the three new year resolutions I have:
Join a local gym and work out at least three times a week there. My goal last year was to lose weight and that I did-90 pounds! Now, I want to tone up and add some muscles this year.
Spend time in prayer when I get up in the morning and and before I go to sleep at night. While I do set aside quiet time to spend with Our Lord, I have come to the reaslization that I could add a few extra moments in the morning and at night to help myself focus more, as well as to be more reflective. One of the primary reasons why I set up my Saintland web page was to help not others with their prayer life, but also as a means to assist myself with my own prayer life. I will add a section specific for morning and night prayers, which I know will help me be faithful to praying them.
Write a book. I have had the desire to write an ebook for quite some time now. I have worked on it here and there, as well as have done some preliminary work on the various aspects needed to make it a reality. Now is the year to finally make it happen!
So there you have it.
Those are my three personal goals and resolutions for the new year. Now that I have shared them with you and made them “public” you can help me stay true to them and stay on track!
So let me ask you if I may, what are your goals and resolutions for the yew year? Have you made any yet? If you have, how faithful have you been to them?
The cool thing about making a resolution is that even if you falter, you can always start right back up again!
We can support one another!
I will finish by wishing you and your family and friends a very blessed and happy New Year indeed!
