What's your New Year's Resolution?

We are entering towards the last few weeks of the year, probably you have started thinking about your new year's resolution and how you are going to be better in the new year. But, chances are that you would probably end up the same like any previous year.  


Every year, you stopped at just having the thought but without any actual actions. Then, time flies by in the blink of an eye and turn that into a vicious cycle. You aged year by year and as you get older, you start to stay in your comfort zone and too afraid to try anything new or even to take the leap of faith. 

But deep down, you know you have to make a change. So here's how!


Decide to do something different!
How bad do you want it? You may have heard about this a lot but nothing can really happen until you actually make the decision. You have to decide what you really want and what you are willing to sacrifice to exchange for it. Tell yourself, "I will do whatever it takes to get me there!". 



Set Goals!  
Imagine how a runner can win a race without knowing where the end point is? It's like kicking football penalty without a goal post, shooting basketball without a hoop or even driving without a destination! How horrible would you be feeling? And set a SMART goal, make sure it is specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-bound. 



Make Plans!
Many people just start right away without a plan, which is also why they failed halfway through. Yes you may have your eyes on the prize/goal/destination, but without knowing what actually you need to do is not going to get you there. It's just like in order to get you to your destination, how much petrol you need to pump into your car, how much money you need to prepare for the toll, what are the directions and most importantly, can you arrive on time? Make a thorough plan!



Take Action!
3....2....1... Action! Life is pretty much like a movie where you are your own main actor/actress, as well as the director, except that there is no take two in life and you just wasted another day or another year. There is certainly no stuntman to replace you too, you just have to do it all by your own. So, can you be the best actor/best director for your own life movie? You can and you should




And again, this may be just another typical articles that you read which could only sparks for a moment for you. You may find it inspiring, liking the post or even sharing to your friend. But at the end of the day, it is you who is going to change your own life! Take action now!
