1 of 11 image credit: free-photo-download.info It might be all of us have the same question like this: “ why should I have goal? My life is good enough through the years. ” Yes, your life might be good enough, but have you wonder what will you be in 5 or 10 years in the future? I heard a nice quote from the radio: “ If you never plan your future, the future will keep come to you, BUT if you plan your future, the future will come like what you want it to be. ” What do you think about that quote? Nice isn ’ t it? In this post, I would like to share 10 things that might help you to create your resolutions and how to pursue it until the end of the year. Good luck! WHY SHOULD I MAKE RESOLUTIONS?

Do you want to lose your weight but failed to achieve it? Take your time and evaluate. 1 TIPS: Be honest with yourself. Why you fail to achieve your goal? Most people say they failed because of their external factors. Is it really just because of your external factors? Be honest. EVALUATE

You ’ ll be easily confused or hard to decide (which most people do) if you don't know which one need to be prioritized. TIPS: Try to write down your “ Goals List. ” If you feel that you have a distance with your family because being too busy, why don't decide to spend your weekend with your family? FIRST THINGS FIRST

I didn ’ t say that you should shut your highest dream, but if you think you can ’ t achieve it , don ’ t write it down (or you ’ ll add it to your list next year - again). TIPS: Don't write “ I wanna be a better person this year. ” Think deep. Which part you want to better? Arrive on time? No delaying task? Write it specifically. I believe you can do it :) 3 BE REALISTIC

I was finished my Goals List, but then I just keep it in my computer and didn ’ t see it again until the end of the year. Why? Because I forget on what folder I placed it. Forget where your Goals List = Disremember your target = You didn ’ t achieve it. TIPS: Write it down in ONE piece of paper. More paper means more target. It ’ s good to have much target, but more paper could make you feel lazy because there ’ s to many goals to be achieved. PRINT >> STICK IT TO YOUR WALL / DESK PRINT IT OUT

When you share your goals, you let them know what you want to pursue so they may encourage and could offer you a hand to help! TIPS: Share with your closest one, like mentor or partner, boyfriend or girlfriend, and maybe your brother or sister. Don ’ t ever share it to people who you don't even know. 5 SHARE YOUR GOALS

When it cause you down or desperate, quickly stand up fight it, and fly away as winner! “ Before your feet hit the floor in the morning, get rid of negative thinking before it even starts - Joyce Meyer ” TIPS: Be wise on critics and suggestions. Learn to accept the critics by taking it positively. Keep walking even when you receive “ negativity ” from others. 6 FLY AWAY FROM “ NEGATIVITY ”

Digging your skills and talents will make you being a better person! TIPS: Prepare 15-20 minutes per day to read books and articles on the internet. I love to read inc.com, fastcompany.com, and forbes.com. Find topics that you want to know more (don ’ t just read jokes). 7 STAY HUNGRY

You can cut it down and try to learn a new skill. Trust me, it is never too late to develop your new skill and new things. Write this down on your resolutions. TIPS: Dare to try on things that make you happy. Maybe you feel happy when you ’ re watching Masterchef. Why just watch? Go to store and try to cook!
