It is New Year again! What? Yes, 2016 was that short! You never realized this year’s resolutions. Again! But since everyone is crazy about creating their 2017 New Year resolutions, you will not be left alone. You too will create them. And as sure as the sun rises, 2017 will end before you have achieved them. Well, I ain’t bewitching you but your way of setting goals is problematic.

Now, let us look at what you are doing wrong:


  1. Lack of discipline

You are very good in creating goals. But never good enough in keeping them. Why? You are not disciplined. For example, you set a goal that you will lose weight. One of the things you should look into is eating low-calorie foods so as to achieve this dream. But no, you go on eating Steers chips, Galito’s Chicken, ice-cream and all sorts of junk expecting to lose weight by a miracle. Well’, things do not go that way friend. You lack sacrifice and discipline which are key in realizing dreams.



  1. Unrealistic Goals

An online friend told you that they are earning millions and millions of dollars writing niche blogs and since you do not want to be left out in this get-rich-quick schemes, you also decide to start a health niche blog in 2017. Well, this will not come to pass since that goal is very unrealistic. For one, you know nothing about medicine. And two, you are not given to writing. So the resolution will …flop.


  1. Going it all alone

You do not want to involve anyone in your 2017 resolutions. And as such, those goals will come crumbling. Without involving others in your goal setting, you lack accountability.

  1. Rash decisions

Making resolutions on the 1st January, 2017 will not see you go far. Why? You will be in such a rash to make them that you will not sit down to know what you really need to trim down in your life.

Have a prosperous 2017 and hey, do not do those things!
