Happy 2020

Uncertainty is the only certainty there is, and knowing how to live with insecurity is the only security    John Allen Paulos

Exactly at 12.00 mid night on December 31 st in 2019, we all wished happy 2020 to each other and welcomed the new year the next second.

We all had our own agenda,new year resolutions,plans,goals,promises,decisions,vows  and achievements…what not !

Hopes and aspirations touching the peak !

My New Year resolution is 1080p 😄😄

Are new year Resolutions a necessity ?

‘The most amazing part about making New year’s resolutions is breaking new year resolutions’

It’s 4.8 minute read.

Welcome to Another new year & another set of Resolutions

We can’t believe that already we are in the new year 2020.All of us faithfully plan certain promises to be fulfilled religiously,famously known worldwide as New year resolutions which can include a varieties of ‘ what I am going to do/not going to do stuff’.

You have decided to turn a new page in your life.

Congratulations !

But how long you are going to stick to it ? But once you realize that the resolutions of yours are too challenging……soon you drop out.Hmm….so easy to reverse the decision !

It is said the less than 5% of the people keep up their resolve.

Just think for a moment .

In 2019 you knew pretty well how dismal you were in achieving these goals set in 2018.

Why do people fail to keep up their resolutions ?

“Many people look forwards to the New Year for a new start on old habits” unknown

Any solution available ?

Yes .Solutions are available,provided you are willing to transform your motivations into habits.

“Motivation is what gets you started.Habit is what keeps you going”. Jim Ryun

Some of my thoughts

1.False Hope Syndrome

Thinking that things are easily done,you set high expectation goals,that are not achievable(unrealistic),due to your overconfidence.

Outcome- Negative results.

“False hopes really makes you cynical” Bill Maher

Solution– Break your goals into small segments and one at a time,that are easily achievable

2.Breaking our old habits

“Bad habits are like a comfortable bed,easy to get into,but hard to get out of” unknown

This needswill power’,which most of us lack.

Solution-Your life to day is the sum of your habits.

It takes 66 days ( Approx 12 weeks ) for a new behavior to become a habit. (European Journal of Social Psychology).It is not a magic number,but it can be a starting point.

Day 1 to day 22 – You are on a mission.Day 22 to 44 – You are nearer to breaking your old habits and your confidence building up.Day 44 to 66– These last 22 days are test for your endurance.

So allow your new habit to continue for more than 66 days then it becomes routine for you.

” All changes is hard at first,misery in the middle and so gorgeous at the end. Robin Sharma

Learn the triggers of your old habits and keep a distance.

3.procrastination.

“Hard work pays off later.Laziness pays off now. I’ve always been one for being ‘in the moment’ unknown

It’s a fact that new year resolutions, you make are just a way to procrastinate your achievable goals.It’s human instinct to come out with excuses.

Solution-Develop sense of urgency to achieve your goals.Remember the formula ‘Do it now’ and let this go on ringing in your ears.

First of all I don’t understand why you should wait for the New Year to come ? Think Now or never !

4.Lack of motivation

People say nothing is impossible,but I do nothing every day” Winnie the Pooh

May be you are getting it alone.May be you lack enthusiasm,may be you try too hard in the beginning stages and you are in a hurry and get exhausted fast..May be the resolution you made is not to your liking. All these things can demotivate you.

Solution– Set realistic goals by managing your time.Do’t over do it.Try to get support from family and friends.

5.No accountability

“Ninety nine percent of all failures come from people who have a habit of making excuses”. George Washington Carver

Accountability is the key ingredient to any success.Don’t get involved in blame games.Accept it.We all indulge in Blame Games
SolutionIt is much easier to achieve your goal if you can find a partner with similar aim.Or become a part of small group of people or neighbors who aim for achieving the goal.Let your goals be time bound and you be sincere.

Let your goal be your aim and the habits your devotion.

Please share your thoughts.
How much percentage you are successful in completing your 2018 resolutions in 2019 ?

Thank you

Well well,another year is going to end ….

 

Year coming to an end

“The bad news is time flies.The good news is you’re the pilot”.      Michael Artshuler

Hello my friends,we have entered December,the wonderful month of Winter Flowers,Build a snowman day, Christmas celebrations…. taking us to the end of the year and soon to the beginning of another promising, and exciting new year.

Did you enjoy this year or it is a kind of mixed blessings ?

Still you feel there is so much to do and wondering how 2019 is flying so fast ? And how much bucket list you could check out ?

Are you are planning to set your usual new year resolution ?

Is not life more than this ? Don’t you remember all those little moments you missed because you are obsessed with aiming bigger ones ?

Realize as this year is ending,take a deep breath,start enjoy every moment what God has given you rather that what you could not,love to be a part of the chaos surrounding you,thanking the Almighty for giving another year ahead to fulfill your dreams.

Now is it not the the time to evaluate and change ?

Yes. Aim for a positive outlook on life.

Savor each moment of life,find beauty in everything, everywhere and every day.

No doubt,new year can bring fresh challenges.

Have positive thoughts as you wake up each morning. Remember,each day is a gift given by God and make attempt to bring happiness to yourself and people around you.

“Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us. Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right”.      Oprah Winfrey

Thank you🙏🏻

My goal for 2019 !

Happy new year

My goal for 2019 is

To accomplish the goals of 2018,

Which I should have done in 2017,

Because I promised them in 2015,

And planned them in 2014……..

Jokes apart….

Let us be frank…..Most of us fail to achieve what we plan for the new year ! It’s alright ! Take a deep breath.Relax….

It is said 80% people fail to stick to their new year resolutions longer than six Weeks.Can you believe this ? Yes it’s true.

Sometimes failure is a motivation for achieving our task.Don’t get disappointed.I am one among you !

“Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.”
Samuel Beckett 

I loved Samuel Beckett’s above quote…Fail better….

10 reasons why new year’s resolutions fail

To all the WP population there, Happy new year !
