The smartest New Years resolutions are the ones you don’t make. Many people set New Years resolutions as a means of positive change in their lives, which is accompanied by stress and unrealistic time frames. While it is good to set goals, you should live each day to the fullest, working towards your goals on a regular basis – not just on January 1st.
The key is to be diligent. Each effort will go towards your goal and begin to add up. Before you know it, you will achieved your goal. Live this way year round. Make it a way of life.
So this January 1st, do not put stress on yourself, trying to do everything in one day. Relax. Take deep breaths. Take each day as it comes. Thank God for all you have and pray to Him for help in achieving your goals. Work diligently towards your goals. Don’t worry. You will get there.

It’s one thing to have talent, but mental grit, tenacity, hard work and practice are needed in realizing your full potential. Talent without motivation and focus will remain dormant. Commit time to working on your dreams. Treat it like you would a job (a second job if you have a main one). Discipline yourself into doing something on regular basis towards accomplishing your goals.
In life, many things will not be handed to you. This means you have to work for what you want and not give up when things become challenging. It’s not just going to fall into your lap. You have to make things happen. Though it sounds cliche, you really will not get the desired results by doing the same things over and over again that did not work in the past. Therefore, if you are having difficulties, try something new in an effort to achieve your goal.
