WHY NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS DON'T WORK OUT FOR SOME PEOPLE

Image
New year resolutions are goals a person wants to achieve within a year and are supposed to be accompanied with mapped out plans to follow. They are like a guide or guard to how we live our lives every day of the year and how we how would want the year to end up for us or where we would like to be at the end of the year. Goals help to trigger new behaviors and help you sustain a momentum in life. You see, when you have a goal in life, it helps you align your focus and keeps you disciplined till that goal is achieved. Basically, new year's resolution is meant to improve your life year in year out. You ought to get better in one area of life at least each year. That's how we make progress in life. But unfortunately, every year, I hear people say new year's resolutions are rubbish and impossible to go by. Certain people follow this line of people or just follow the crowd and conclude that new year resolutions are all bullshit.  Among those who believe new year resolutions don&#

DON'T LET THE WEIGHT OF BEING A BEGINNER CRUSH YOU

2020 has come and gone with its numerous challenges and difficulties. Its a new year, a new dawn and a new beginning. And I'm sure most of us are glad to do away with the year 2020. It's the toughest year I've experienced in my life not just personally but on a general note and I believe its same with most of us. Even though some people had it go well for them like never before, 2020 is one year most of us will never forget in a hurry no matter how much we would like to dump it in the past. With the emergence of corona virus (COVID-19), most economies of the world crashed and were shut down for weeks. People's dreams were shattered, dreams envisaged for 2020 were not lived, jobs were lost, businesses crumbled or brought to a stand still. For some who were still in jobs, they either had their salaries slashed or were not paid for the number of months the lock down was on . Few weeks back, I watched a documentary on farmers who gave account of their experiences as a resul

2020 has been a great year for us all. For some its been a very challenging year and for others its been awesome. For everyone who had it rough, life doesn't end with with 2020 as we look forward to a better 2021. Don't get stuck with the regrets, mistakes or failures of 2020. Move forward. Last week, we looked at part one of this series where some salient points on how to get passed the difficulties of 2020 were stated and explained. You can read that here:  You Failed in 2020 So What? 1 Below are the other points in continuation of the series.  3. RE-WRITE YOUR STORY :  Instead of re-living your past over and over again getting into trauma, use it as a stepping stone to do and get better in the coming year. Reflecting on and identifying areas you did not do well should enable you do better. The mistakes you made should not make you a less person but much better than you were. You can re-write your story. Don't just get over the past but benefit from it. Bad experiences ma

YOU FAILED IN 2020 SO WHAT? 1

2020, as it gradually comes to an end will not be easily forgotten by so many of us. We all wish it would come to an end and wrapped up soon enough.   The year has not really been a great year for so many people. Though its been good and great for a selected few but most had it rough and challenging for them.  With it came so many challenges that left so many devastated. In fact I have heard and seen jokes where it was stated that the year 2020 should be  reformatted.  If so many of us should look back at the year, we would see so many things that were not achieved, things we did wrong, dreams not realized, mistakes made, ideas not executed, failed plans and full potentials not reached.  There were business failures, career failures, academic failures and delays, failed relationships, people lost their jobs, lost loved ones, others felt they failed their families and loved ones.  Some failures experienced were as a result of the mistakes made or wrong decisions made. Others were as a r

ALL YOU NEED IS STRENGTH FOR TODAY AND NOT THE WORRIES OF TOMORROW 2

Last week we started on the part one of All You Need Is Strength For Tomorrow And Not The Worries Of Tomorrow where we looked at some ways to get over the worries of this life. In this post, we would be concluding the series by looking the remaining points on how to get over the worries of life.  God said in Mathew 6:34 " Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." When the Bible says not to worry about tomorrow, it did not say not to think of your tomorrow or plan ahead of tomorrow but rather it says, do not get worried or anxious about it.  Worry always breeds fear of failure, fear of death, fear of success and it negatively affects us in all ramification. It affects our whole entire body system and all we do physically. All you need is strength to carry on for today and not the worries of tomorrow. Each day has enough troubles or challenges  of its own already to be too anxious of tomorrow.  Below a

We all go through one form of challenge or the other every day of our lives in our careers, jobs, dreams, finances, family lives, relationships and other wise that tend to weigh us down making us worry for tomorrow.  These challenges or troubles would make it seem like you can't or won't be able to go on with life any longer. Sometimes, it's our relationships taking a toll on us and we wouldn't want to let go for fear of being a lone. There are times, it is our finances that seem not to be enough. Instead of adding up, it decreases with so many challenges or responsibilities affecting our savings or the little at hand. Some other times, its the dreams we have and want to live that seem like an impossible thing to achieve because it seems bigger than us. Other times it is our jobs or careers posing a threat to us. Too many challenges in the job that make you want to quit even when you are not fully prepared for such a decision. Worrying about how you want to cope with th
