New years resolutions are for people that procrastinate. I mean seriously look how New Years resolutions sound when you say them out loud. "My new years resolution is to lose 20 pounds." So you're going to wait on another year to lose twenty pounds when in that same year you're going to gain twenty more pounds. So in actuality your New Years resolution should be to lose 40 pounds at this point. To me, the whole let's wait till New Years to make changes in our lives is bogus. It's all bark, no bite; all talk no fight.
I'm more of a daily goal person. Everyday that is presented to us we need to find a way to grow and be prosperous in it. We must treat each day as a day that we will seek fulfillment and grace. Life is a daily task. You can't plan to conquer life each year because each year you will fail. You have to plan to conquer life one day at a time. Everyday will a different obstacle that you must overcome and we never know what that obstacle may be.
When Oregon Ducks were about to clinch a National Football Championship a few years back their head coach coined the phrase 'Win the day'. I love this quote because it exemplifies what I mean when I say Happy New Day instead of Happy New Year. If you can commit yourself to winning each day of your life then you will accomplish every goal you set. Most goals you set to accomplish takes more than one day to accomplish anyway. Let’s take college students for example. You can't finish college in a day. But daily you can commit to going to class everyday, being on time, finishing your work daily, and volunteering to help your professor, etc.
Every year we get 365 chances to set goals and accomplish them. Every year we get 365 chances to make things right. Every day of every year I want you all to be great and 'Win the day'. You don't have to wait on next year. Why wait on time when time waits on no man? Happy New Day everyone! Be Great!
