I never understood the custom of declaring New Year’s resolution. Honestly, what do people think will happen on this “magical” day?
People will spend an entire year, creating as many excuses as necessary, in order to avoid accomplishing goals and bettering their lives. Then, for some unexplainable reason, these very same underachievers will decide that New Year ’s Day is the day everything will change. (It’s not going to happen!)
The very exercise of waiting until a specific moment to execute a life altering change is idiotic. If the objective is to become more successful, the right time to make a change is “now!” Waiting for New Year’s Day is a great way to ensure that you will continue to underachieve.
What do people actually think happens on January 1st? It’s a day like any other. Saying, “it’s going to be a new year and a new me,” is wishful thinking. What you are really saying is, “I hope things go better for me this year.”
Accomplished individuals don’t wait, or hope for things to improve. They set goals, work hard, and create their own success. Procrastination is cool for students with term papers to write, not grown adults with children to provide for!
My favorite aspect of the New Year’s Resolution is the fact that it usually comes during a New Year’s Day party, while the person professing his or her plan for future success is in an inebriated state. I’m not against having some fun, but partying is only fun when you are celebrating a triumph. I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me, but your resolution would probably seem more believable if you weren’t wearing a beer-stained shirt and slurring your words!
I wish there was a change to the tradition. Instead of people telling us what they plan on doing, I would prefer if people toasted to what they accomplished during the previous year; we can call it Last Year’s Checklist!
I will break my rule and state my New Year’s Resolution.
My New Year’s Resolution is to create a kickass meme which pokes fun at the pope. Once I create the pic, I will use it as my Facebook profile pic!
Wait, that can’t be my resolution. I already accomplished that goal.
It’s funny because it’s true! (Let’s see how long I can keep this profile pic going!)
Let me see. I will write my 400th blog post before the end of 2014.
Wait, that can’t be it either. This is my four hundredth post.
Never mind, I don’t really get the whole resolution thing!
