For the new year I have 3 different resolutions that I will work really hard for and that I hope will make this year a more well rounded year. I have a personal, a family and friends, and an outside world and school resolution that I will work for. I want this year to be filled with different things. I want it to be full of positive activities that I don’t usually do and get myself out in the community and help in some way. My personal goal is to be more healthy.
It is important to strive for goals because it is what creates success, makes people interesting, and generates high-self esteem when difficult tasks are accomplished. Personal goals differ between people and this is okay. For a money-challenged person setting up a saving account and saving money is a huge challenge. On the other hand maintaining a part-time job while going to school and keeping high marks may be an easy challenge for a person who has no problems with learning content. These goals, saving money or working part-time while going to school, provide purpose for these individuals.
But of course I made a few, and this year I am really determined to succeed in at least one of them. This year in 2018 I plan to, get in better shape, learn a new language and, earn some money. If you made a New Year’s resolution too, remember that’s it's okay to fail, just try your best! The way I’m going to get in better shape is by exercising and, going to the gym more. That way I can build muscle strength and burn of what I eat or, what I’m going to eat during the day.
“The ultimate reason for setting goals is to entice you to become the person it takes to achieve them.”(Jim Rohn). It is important to have goals because it can focus my acquisition of knowledge, and helps you to organize your time and resources to make the most of your life. Some examples include getting a job, having a family, being a successful business person, becoming famous, etc. It is also important to have goals because it can motivate you and keep you active. One important goal for me is to go to college so I can have a good education, become more social, and find something I want to do when I grow up.
Aside from using money for basic needs, money can also buy happiness by allowing one to buy time, live life to the fullest, and live freely without having to worries. First of all, money can buy you time, time is definite and stubborn, meaning that time time is constantly moving forwards and does not stop for anything. There is only so much of it, and no matter how long we complain about not having enough, it will never give us a 25 hour day even when we turn in our request for more time to finish a project before the deadline. According to an article in the Time magazine Dan Gilbert, Harvard University psychology professor said, “ Use your money to buy moments and not stuff, the key is to spend your money on experiences and not material things. Memories of people, places and activities, however, never get old.” Also to buy time means to use your money on things that will save
New Year is one of the oldest festive occasions, which is universally celebrated. It is the time when people celebrate the arrival of the forthcoming year and bid goodbye to the year that has passed by. New Year is celebrated all over the world, though not necessarily on 1st of January. It is interesting to note that not all the countries follow the same calendar. Countries like China, India and Israel have their own versions of lunar calendar and celebrate New Year at different periods.
My first goal in this New Year is to be more respectful and more honest to my teachers in 2017 this was a hard thing for me to do, I don’t have nothing against teachers at all but if I feel like I’m not learning enough I take it out on them but it’s really me because I need to start studying for my test so I can get good grades on them. I don’t mean anything I say when I’m mad I just have it control my anger when I’m upset and do my work. In 2017
1.1 People make new year resolutions because they feel it’s a new beginning to the year and for themselves as well. It is another fresh start or a second chance to do things right. 1.2 People make unrealistic goals and expectations, people easily get discouraged and abandon the goal if they don’t see immediate changes (people are impatient) or the resolution is significantly out of alignments with their internal view of themselves (copying other people’s goals and resolutions). 1.3 The three tips: a) Be specific about your resolution. Have a clear indication what it is you want, and see or envision how it will feel to achieve that specific goal.
The New Year stands before us like a fresh chapter in a book. This year I will follow my new year resolutions by allowing myself to go through with what I had said because I want things to be better for me and I want others to see a good change in me for the New Year. I have many goals set for this year and I will succeed and follow through this year as a strong individual. Secondly my personal improvement promise is to lose some weight because it 's a new year so a new me. I 've already lost some weight but I want to continue to exercise more expand my diet to healthier foods and just lose that extra weight just for myself and part of the reason is because my senior year I went to meet with a Navy recruiter and talk to him or her about joining the Navy they also have a weight limit and I want to reach the goal and meet the standards before I talk to the recruiter.
Every New Year people all around the world create promises that in the upcoming New Year that they will change, or make new decisions to enhance their daily lives. However after I had made promises for this year, I had experienced a tragedy in the first three days of the New Year. Nonetheless, I will still pursue the goals I set to do. The promises I made where: to get accepted into the University, improve my study skills and academics, and lastly to become more physically fit. University in many ways a necessity for people to succeed in life.
