-What are your New Year’s Resolutions?-

It is time for a new year now and it has come to replace the previous year and to bring new hope to us all.

Everything sad and dissapointing in the past belongs to the past, while the happy things we experienced should motivate us to become an even better person in the new year.

The new year is an opportunity for us to make our dreams come true. Maybe we did not have the chance to make them come true in the past year.

What did you do to welcome the new year? Have you got any new year’s resolutions? What do you want to achieve this new year? Resolutions should not remain as resolutions only, you have to make them come true. Here are eight best ways to make your resolutions come true:

1. Realise that new year’s resolutions are not different from the resolutions you make on other days

A lot of people make resolutions on new year’s day because they feel that it’s the most convenient time of the year. The new year is the right time to achieve what have not been achieved. But, you should realise that you don’t need to wait until a new year to make resolutions. Make resolutions whenever you want. Actually, it’s not too late if you make resolutions today, tomorrow or next month.

2. Write down all your resolutions clearly

3. Start from the most realistic resolution

Of all the resolutions you’ve made, there will be some that are easier to do, while some other are more difficult. To make it easier, start from the most realistic resolution.

4. Don’t focus on making all changes at the same time

There is no better way to make changes than to do it slowly but surely. Focus on one change at a time. Don’t try to make all changes at the same time. As mentioned in point 3, start from the most realistic resolution.

8. Celebrate what you have achieved, no matter how small it is

Every progess you make, no matter how small it is, deserves celebration. So, be happy when you are progressing.
