Day 363 – New Year’s Resolutions

Oh, how I love New Year’s resolutions.  Something about the blank slate, the possibility for growth.

It’s well known that New Year’s resolutions don’t have a high success rate. So why do we continue to make resolutions every year even though so few of us follow through?

Moreover, it may have something to do with “Tradition! Tradition! Tradition,” as the characters in the musical Fiddler On The Roof famously sing. Setting New Year’s resolutions is believed to go as far back as Babylonian times. It’s said that Julius Caesar started the tradition of making resolutions on January 1st as a way to honor the Roman mythical god Janus, whose two faces allowed him to look back into the past year and forward to the new year.

Here are the Top 10 New Year’s Resolutions That People Make

  1. Stop Smoking
  2. Get into a Habit of being Fit
  3. Lose Weight – the Battle of the Bulge
  4. Enjoy Life More.
  5. Quit Drinking
  6. Organize Yourself – this is one of the keys to reaching your goals
  7. Learn Something New
  8. Get out of Debt
  9. Spend More Time With Family
  10. Help People

AND

11. Make those Resolutions stick!

Take Action!

Make a New Year’s resolution that you’d make if you knew you only had this next year to live — a resolution that will make you happier.  Now make a realistic plan to keep your resolution.

Wishing everyone a happy and prosperous New Year!
