you make the list of resolutions to be followed in New Year? The
question is how to follow the same. I remember, when I was in college, I
use to make the big list of resolutions.
From 1st Jan,
I will wake up early in the morning
I will start daily exercise
I will study at least one subject after the exercise
I will enroll for additional diploma
I will spend at least one Sunday with underprivileged children and so on….
I look back and review why resolutions are not followed, I get simple
answer and it is we do not commit to ourselves. We recognize the
importance of resolutions. That’s why we make it. But it does not come
from our heart as they are not priorities for us. You just check the
list of resolutions people do. If you do not follow these resolutions,
you do not suffer so much immediately. Unless we do not make them the
priority we would not be able to follow them.
Second reason is we
do not convert them into objectives and goals. And when you convert them
into the goals, you are forced to put the timeline. Most of the times,
it is wish list we make and label them resolutions.
We have lot of
excuses to break these resolutions. We do not plan them properly.
Sometimes we do it for 15 days and then we forget…
So on the eve of last day of this year, at least make one resolution...
“Whatsoever, I make any resolution; I make it to happen.”
on one TV show, one actor asked another one, “What does New Year mean
for you?” Actor replied, “When my wife asks me to bring new calendar, I
assume that the New Year is ahead.”
Earth rotates around the Sun
as usual, birds go out from their nest as usual, but for human being, it
is the new day for new thinking. Human being thinks what he has
achieved, gain in a last year and what he would achieve in New Year.
However we should not forget the spirit of enjoying the New Year. We
keep back the baggage and hope for the best in New Year. Somebody may
say that 2014 was more challenging and volatile, but that is the life.
It gave you total new experience. There is one English movie, “Clean
Slate”. In this movie one character suffers one type of amnesia, when he
goes to sleep each night he forgets everything that happened to him
before that time. A woman who had cheated him asked him to forgive. The
character even is not aware what she did with him and he is totally
As you welcome the New Year, your past has nothing to
influence your future. The great year is ahead with hopes and lot of
positive energy. If you believe on the “Law of Attraction”, then this
year will bring more joy and positive energy in your life. No matter
what has happened in last year, you have the power to create your next
year as you choose. For this you have to choose the freedom of choosing.

you all Happy New year! May this New Year 2015 bring for you happiness,
success, health, prosperity and wonderful surprises in your life!”
