Points I’m Taking Into 2013

I have tried to make resolutions before and have naturally failed to keep up with them after the New Year’s hype has died down. I was even cheeky enough to have the following resolution for a recent year:

“Do not make a resolution.”

That resolution ended before it began and I realised I was not good at keeping resolutions.

And that got me thinking.

How does a change in year change a person’s attitude? Why do people suddenly feel like they can create rules for themselves and believe that a new year will mean that they will stick to resolutions?

The fact is, people do not change between 31st December to 1st January, they change over a period of time. This is the reason why I have decided against making an abrupt resolution for this year; instead, have decided to reflect on the past year and ensure I keep moving forward with the positives that have come out of 2012.

Out With The Old; In With The New.

Out With The Old; In With The New.

What I have learnt from 2012:

-Confidence in yourself is important in this dog-eat-dog World.

-You cannot love another if you do not love yourself.

-Take a chance. Give people, places and things a chance. You’ll be surprised where it leads you.

-Indolence is not fun when it is a regular occurrence.

-Keep moving forward.

-Only you can make things happen.

-You can literally do anything you want to; all you need is a strong vision and firm actions.

-Learn new skills.

-Commit yourself to your tasks.

-Take each day as it comes. Clichéd but true.
