Behold, it's almost time to repeat the famous "new year, new me" thing. People begin formulating New Year resolutions, others recycle resolutions and above all, very few ever implement the laid down New Year resolutions.

What if your new year's resolution is to, "not follow your new year's resolution"? The culture of forming new year resolutions is one interesting fact. This is because, whereas individuals formulate their own resolutions, very few actually get to implement these laid resolutions. So then, why does this happen? Think about what you have achieved in the course of last year and what you fell short of. What could be done to help bridge the incomplete or failed resolutions? What new resolutions would merge well with the ones you achieved?

The path to a successful new year's resolution is simple. First, let's start by identifying the gaps that exist in your life and what you intend to do, to help bridge them. Obviously, you didn't meet all of them, so let's start with that. What if you didn't have a resolution? Panic not, because you still have room to recollect yourself and formulate new ones. In this respect, think of something that is achievable, something tenable and sustainable. Most resolutions fail, because they fail to have advancement in the long-term. A good resolution should have a definite lifespan.

During this period, you may feel like starting the New Year ready to reinvent your life, only to find that, a month later, you’ve given up on everything and are living a life that’s totally indifferent from last year. But maybe the problem isn’t you. Maybe you’re just bored of making and breaking the same resolutions over and over again. It’s no wonder you’re uninspired to keep them going past January.

So why not break the record this year? Try a new resolution. Do something fun, creative, interesting!

Here is to all the New Year resolutions, cheers!
