With the new year all set – guess what is back?
Yes you are correct – Resolutions are back – are they more stronger now!
With every passing year and with the commencement of the new one we make so many resolution but hardly a handful of people manage to live up to their reputations.
This post is not about motivating you how to live it up or what resolutions you need to make or break – but it is highlighting the most sought of resolutions(world wide) which get broken easily. I have not done any statistics or google – and this is my personal feeling(or experience) and even if a survey is created I am pretty sure that these are ought to be on top of the list.
Here are the most common resolutions which get broken very fast:
By far this is the most disrespected resolution as it is taken only to be broken within a week, actual quitters are now waiting for a new year resolution to quit smoking though I know many who have already kept their word.
This is mostly taken during the new year eve – Ah I have had enough of it now and it’s high time to quit. Alas! this is short lived too – and do you know how long does it last for most people – less than 12 hrs. Wondering why?
As you get up late after a heavy overdose of ethanol its already 11:30 AM or past and by the time you get over from your hangover the sun has gone down again which tempts the person – damn it lets do it again 🙂
From tomorrow I will go for a morning walk, jogging, running in the morning, join the gym, Yoga or Zumba whatever be your favourite one.
Experience has it that in the 1st week of January it is better to be cautious for regular morning walkers and joggers as they might encounter heavy surge of the revolutionaries and there might be a stampede.
However it does not last long too – some have their late nights, some love to sleep, some hate to get up early in the morning and some have never started as they ended up late in the new year eve party. Until the bell rings and the doc says start running today so that your medicines dont start running when its too late.
This is somewhat which people do stick to and it does last long as compared to the other ones – but I might be wrong as this is not as apparent and visible as their abov counterparts.
The rest of the resolutions like reading books or learning to play guitar and other are most of the time met.
If you carry out analysis the real problem underlying in the resolutions being broken is the fact that we cannot stick to our promise or commitments. It is easy to promise, promise to your Mom, dad, wife or son, easy to take marital vows in front of sacred dise with thousand people around – then why we have marital discord, easy to recite a holy mantra for peace – but in the long run we forget then to be in place and to win this race we need to practise the art of commitment, truth, discipline and contemplate the fact that we have given our words to someone and realise – what is the value of my words if I am unable to live up to it without any legal obligation. However trust me it is easier said than done which is the reason many fail – It is always the simplest of the task in which people fail.
So I wish you all have more strength to start this year with a positive heart and soul and live up to all your resolutions and dreams.
Do share in case you have heard about some weird experiences with resolutions and I have myself kept many and broken some. Also let me know if you have something to add in this list which is easily broken every-time.
I have written this article in a light mode and do not intend or wish to harm the intentions of passionate people who are an inspiration for many and prove that one can do what he believes in.
Have a good day and Jai Shri Krishan 🙂
