We are in the last days of the year and it is time for us to take a good look at ourselves and see what we did or did not do throughout the year. It is time for us to do a self-assessment test to see how to make the coming year a better one. Many may feel depressed, stressed out or even disappointed in themselves because they may not have achieved last year’s resolutions. Making a New Year’s resolution should not be something that should pressurise you in your quest to bring change in your life. I will share with you some random New Year’s resolution quotes that will inspire you this coming year. Do not be harsh on yourself when you don’t achieve your New Year’s resolution. Stay motivated, be excited and inspired with the selected quotes as you prepare to start the new year.
“Making resolutions is a cleansing ritual of self-assessment and repentance that demands personal honesty and, ultimately, reinforces humility. Breaking them is part of the cycle.” The last part is so relieving. This is to tell you that while making a resolution, you should have it in mind that some may not be met as you would have wished. Note that change is constant but not instant.
“The Secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new”. There are certain things in your life that maybe worthless fighting to change. At times we rather need something new that will help to wipe out the old. In this case, for you to do away with old habits, you must have something new to replace it with. So you start by bringing in something new and you will not even notice the disappearance of the old one.
“If you flee from the things you fear, there’s no resolution”. Many people are usually afraid to take resolutions for the fear of not keeping it. Rather, you should take them just like Eric Zorn concluded above, “Breaking them is part of the cycle”.
“Comparison is the thief of joy”. Don’t start to compare your ending year with the coming one. Because you didn’t achieve your last year’s resolutions doesn’t mean you may not achieve this New Year’s resolution. In another sense, this coming year, make sure you focus more on your happiness and less on what others do.
“There is nothing magical about the flip of the calendar, but it represents a clean break, a new hope, and a blank canvas.” Just like it “is a cleansing ritual of self-assessment” it all depends on what you will paint on that canvas. As you paint your year from the coming January 1 to December 31, you should have it in mind that the value of a paint work may vary in many ways. You may throw it in the garbage can and be surprised to see someone making millions out of it in the next minute.
