Myth: A new year, a new you.

0565f5d79464b848041f9a4eb2f74ad9It’s a saying we all hear floating around this time of year as everyone frantically tries to set ambitious new years goals. While goal setting is forward thinking, saying 2016 will be the year where people will be introduced to a dramatically different you is  farfetched and unrealistic. I’m not saying you can’t work towards becoming a better person but instead there are better means of doing so. Instead of the lofty, “A new year, a new me”, I believe in “New year, new habits”.

Despite how closely the two saying resemble each other, one aims to strive for a nearly perfect you, while the other takes into consideration your humnally tendency to fall short at times. Regardless you can strive to form long term habits which will translate over into the new person others see you as. This saying speaks for itself in many ways; therefore if you desire to accomplish the goals you have set out for 2016 it will require constancy and diligence. Whether you desire to shape up or love others more you have to work hard at it daily and know your not perfect. You may find it hard at times when you find yourself falling way short of the goal but that should serve as even more motivation to work even harder. When the last day of 2016 roles around and you take time to self reflect, you will be pleased to know that the journey you bestowed upon has made you the person you set out to be.

Thank you all for reading. Cheers on 2016. Comment with your thoughts and share to those who think this post may motivate.
