Don't make resolutions without an action plan.
The secret to success is right in your hands.
J. Allen Shaw, Results
New Year Poem
Why do New Years Resolutions fail? Mainly, because they are only
a statement, or what we wish for in the coming year. There are usually
no action plans, no deadlines, no backup plans. Sometimes they are
unrealistic resolutions, with no other thought or plans beside the statement.
Catherine Pulsifer, New Years Achievements Failure Quotes
The meaning of resolution is "a firm decision to do or not to do something."
The key words are "firm decision". If you make a firm decision about something
then you must also take action and set a deadline, in other words, set a goal!
I don't believe in New Year's resolutions. I think if you want to change
something, change it today and don't wait until the New Year.
Quotes about Change
A failure to take precise and deliberate action is the reason why so many
New Year’s resolutions and other goals fail.
Jordan Ring, Now What?
If you are a human being you probably use the beginning of every
year to reflect on the past year, make decision and set resolutions
for the New Year. It is a good thing to make resolutions,
but it takes a good deal of discipline
and commitment to get results that would be different and better
than what you got last year.
Lionnel Yamentou Ndzogoue, New Year, New You!
Work on your strengths, not your weaknesses.
How many of your New Year's resolutions have been about fixing a flaw?
Motivational Quotes for Work
Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank
where they have no account.
Most people will passively do exactly what they did last year.
Whatever you do, don't let that person be you.
Quote of The Day
One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: To rise
above the little things.
Character is the ability to carry out a good resolution long after the excitement of the moment has passed.
Use your New Year's resolution or resolutions as a method
to correct or improve upon that which leads to finishing a past goal.
But it is also ordained that men shall go blithely on just the same,
ignoring in practice the ridiculousness which they admit in theory,
and drawing renewed hope and conceit from some magic, exhaustless
source. And this
is the whole philosophy of the New Year's resolution.
Poems of Hope
Like many other people, you've decided to make New Year's resolutions
because you know there are things you're
unhappy with in your life.
Thibaut Meurisse, New Year's Resolutions Made Simple
A New Year's resolution to stay in touch with old friends, start exercising,
or get more sleep has no real painful consequence for not following through,
at least in the short-term, unless you attach a consequence yourself.
The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book,
waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.
Melody Beattie, The Language of Letting Go
Goal Setting Quotes
So what do we do every year during the holiday season? We make
outlandish, unattainable and often ridiculous resolutions
that almost all of us already know we will not keep. In fact,
most people don't even remember half the New Year's resolutions
they made come Valentine’s Day. Don't fall in the trap.
Michael L. Eads, No New Year's Resolutions
Let us begin this New Year with a resolution. Be all for Jesus and
with Jesus and you will be happy and holy throughout the year.
Give yourselves over to prayer and close union with God
and to a deep, joyful charity.
Angelo Scolozzi, Thirsting for God
After the holidays are over then you may want to look at setting your goals
for the coming year rather than just setting a resolution.
Are you excited about your plans for the new year? Most of us have an idea
about areas where we'd like to improve. And at the beginning of the year,
those ideas sometimes turn into resolutions or goals.
John Maxwell Enthusiasm
We set resolutions because we want something to change in our life.
But if we are not specific and have no detailed plans about how
we are going to change
it then we can expect things to remain as they currently are.
And we will end the year without the resolution accomplished.
So rather than set them if we should
recognize what we have accomplished in the past year and
build on them, where is there the potential to do more, to be more.
Instead of trying to change your entire life in January,
the simpler strategy is to adopt a 12-month plan where you're making constant improvements.
S. J. Scott, Resolutions That Stick!
It is no surprise that those who - Wish - may not see results, but those with a resolution get the results they desire - at least close to it!
Boomy Tokan, New Year's Resolutions
Make your new year resolution in Christ ... because each new year
is a profoundly powerful opportunity to grow in a deeper relationship
with Jesus and to be
his best disciple, following him on the Narrow Way of Love,
Faith, Hope, and Holiness.
Becket, Your New Year Resolution in Christ
You may know them under their more usual name of New Year Resolutions
(the capitals show how important they are!); you may also be familiar with
by the end of January, that you have either forgotten what you had
resolved because the list was too long and you've mislaid the paper
it was jotted on, or that those
you do remember were simply unmanageable!
Alicia Brent, Resolutions & Reflections for the New Year
We are designed to thrive off of success after success, but the problem most people have with New Year’s resolutions is that they are not generally short-term plans that are wired for a quick adrenaline rush of success.
Sharlene Snow, New Years Resolutions
Every man naturally persuades himself that he can keep his
resolutions, nor is he convinced of his imbecility but by length of time
and frequency of experiment. They whom frequent failures have made
desperate, cease to form resolutions, and they who are become cunning,
do not tell them.
There is too much said at New Year's about turning over a new leaf.
Are the old leaves all so badly written that we must hasten to forget
them? Is the blank whiteness of the untouched page more
pleasant to the eye or more fortifying to the will than those
closely written, underlined, untidy, but familiar pages which
make up the story of one's life?
It's not just a New Year's Resolution but a resolution for a new life,
a life filled with God's goodness any time of the year!
