If you have gotten the memo, it is officially the year of 2020. Starting the year off on the right note can be enough pressure. Plus this year being the start of a new decade, so how can a person possibly stay on their path for success? The answer to that question is devising New Year’s resolutions for yourself. New Year’s resolutions are the goals that people set for themselves that they promise to accomplish by the start of the new year. The goals that people set for themselves that they promise to accomplish by the start of the next year. The goals that people set for themselves as New Year’s resolutions typically range from anything such as becoming more organized to climbing higher on the corporate ladder. If anyone is capable of doing this, then why are people so hesitant to act on their resolutions for the new year?

One of the reasons why I think that some people don’t stick to their New Year’s resolutions is that they’re afraid to see a change for the better in themselves. Another reason why I think that some people let go of their resolutions for the new year is that they may feel as though they’ve set the bar too high for themselves.

I think that a person should just keep reaching for the stars no matter how far fetched their New Year’s resolutions may appear to be.”

Some people are taken away by the excitement of making resolutions for themselves for the new year versus actually acting on them which is also a reason why I think that some people don’t accomplish their resolutions for the new year. A person should drop the guilt that they have for themselves for some of the unaccomplished goals that they set for themselves for 2019 and embrace the goals that they have set for themselves for 2020.

I feel as though it’s bad enough if a person doesn’t try to follow up on some of the goals that they set for themselves for the new year, but I think that it’s even worse if a person doesn’t even bother to strive to accomplish more during the new year. A person should want to see some self-improvement in themselves throughout the year which means that any improvement may not be seen after one day depending on the goal, but it will be seen throughout the course of a year. Making New Year’s resolutions doesn’t mean that you have to commit to just those goals because setting personal goals should be limitless in my opinion. I think that a person never knows what they’re able to accomplish until they try. A person should stick to their New Year’s resolutions like pollen on a bee because the victory of accomplishing the goals that you set for yourself is sweeter than honey.
