A new year, with millions of hopefuls filing into diet programs, setting standards for themselves that will never be reached. New years resolutions, a tradition that everyone is aware of. My question: Why do we set clearly unrealistic goals, to celebrate a new calender? This year, I did not make new years resolutions, I made life resolutions. Setting goals all through out your life is the only way to succeed. By setting goals on new year, you are not expecting any change. Make a decision to better yourself, and make yourself happy. Go for your dreams, and then celebrate for a real occasion. I believe the that by making the goals that you truly wish to achieve, you will bring more opportunities and open doors you never dreamed possible.
