The first day of the of the first month of the year is the time when most people have to feel like turning over a new leaf, and which there’s also such a strong sense of misguided imagination about its arrival as something that will become the catalyst for change. There’s a strong need for some people to reinvent themselves with the coming of the New Year by trying to make major changes in their habits. Unfortunately, not all of those who vowed to try making huge changes were able to keep their promises.
Changing the kind of life or lifestyle you had at present, for instance, doesn’t necessarily have to be about changing the whole thing at once. Make it simple, goal-oriented, and something which you know you can fulfill or keep. It’s a waste of your time and effort to pick a New Year’s resolution which you know is bound to fail in the first place.
Making a resolution should not only focus on having to launch it exactly on a New Year’s Day. December is, being the last month of the whole calendar year, also the best time to reflect about your life and your performance as a person and, if you’re a dad like myself, as a parent. But if you really want to change things up for the better, why wait until 2016 when you can start it right away?
The best way to keep your resolution is to tie it to a goal, make it stick all through the year, and you can start it anytime, even right now. Here are six reasons why you should not wait for the New Year to make a resolution:
THE CHOICE YOU’RE MAKING RIGHT NOW WILL MAKE A LOT OF DIFFERENCE
There’s a time for everything, but when it comes to changing a bad attitude or habit, for example, for good, the sooner you will decide to make it all possible, the much better. There’s no way you can procrastinate on things that allow you to have the opportunity of self-transformation.
ANY DAY OF THE YEAR IS THE BEST DAY TO START MAKING A COMMITMENT
When you really want to improve or change yourself for the better, there’s no required exact time or date for it so you can start. If you suddenly figured it out in the month of February, for example, waiting until the whole year ends before you decide to start making commitments on personal development is way too long a time to wait. What is going to be done which you think can be good for you, it must be soon.
WHAT CAN BE GOOD FOR YOU, SOMETIMES, REQUIRES NO PLANNING AT ALL
Sometimes, spontaneous actions can be a good thing. Yes, there are times or moments in your life that require some deep thinking before going to take any actions but, there are also times when spontaneity can help one to find new opportunities, adventures, and events. As long as you’re not making spontaneity as an excuse for thoughtless actions, then you’re on your way to building character and experience. In making a resolution, it should be one that’s spontaneous, realistic, and natural.
PARENTING IS TO MAKE A RESOLUTION ON A DAILY BASIS
When you’re a dedicated parent, every single day spent taking care of your children is to make a resolution on a daily basis. You are going to set a goal and build it on a secure foundation. You are going to understand that being a parent is more than just taking care of kids, you’re sent for an important mission and there’s no way you can settle for anything less. Nevertheless, if things don’t work out in your favor, be courageous enough to accept failure. There are three hundred sixty five days in a year, keep trying, again and again, and you will surely succeed.
THE IMPORTANCE OF THE ACT NOW ATTITUDE
This is very important and this is the part where most people failed to consider or they just simply come to ignore it. It’s about taking the risk of acting over a thing instead of simply debating how to get it done. Chances are, if you won’t act right away on something that you know can change you for the better, they could easily go the other way. So if you think it’s not going to be today or now, when? You have all the freedom in the world to know when to act quickly and when to take your time.
TRY MAKING EVERYDAY THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE
If you can make every single day of your life your best day, then you won’t need to wait for the New Year to make a resolution. Certainly, there are obstacles along the way you need to be dealing with, but your attitude towards them will make a lot of difference.
