2015. It’s a new year, so naturally many people feel the need to make resolutions and set goals for themselves. “New year, new me” is a quote I’ve already seen way too many times considering we’re only 3 days into 2015. It’s not that I have a problem with people wanting to make a positive change in their lives…. It’s just that I don’t see why you need to wait for a new year to come around to do so.
Every day you wake up with new potential. Every day you’re capable of setting goals for yourself, both short and long term. Why should you have to wait for the clock to strike midnight on December 31st to change? You shouldn’t.
A new year doesn’t mean a “new you.”
A “new you” means hard work.
A “new you” means determination.
A “new you” means success.
A “new you” is not directly impacted by a new year in any way.
I can see how some people might be motivated to “start fresh” after seeing a new year roll around, but ultimately I think it’s important to understand your potential to make a change every single day.
Waiting around for your calendar to change won’t solve your problems.
Making a resolution you’re not willing to keep won’t make you a better person.
Setting a goal you don’t want to put time into doesn’t mean you’ll achieve it.
2015 is here to stay for the next 362 days, but what will you do today?
Make the days count, not just the years.
