TOLU'S DIARY - NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS

NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS



Hi diary,



Another 365 days has rolled by and we are in another year. The clock has started to tick again without waiting for no one as usual. The past year might have been good, better, best or the reverse for people. The New Year is another stage set to beat the previous record in the last year.
A new calendar year can be likened to a race by an athlete. Whether as a record holder or a mere participant, he/she wants to do more than the previous race. Preparation is of necessity to be successful, so, whatever the athlete hasn’t done well in his/her past endeavor is taken into keen consideration which may be; the starting style, acceleration, exchange of baton (as done in a relay race) or the finishing. In this same way, we prepare for another journey of 365days by bringing to the discussion table what is tagged ‘New Year Resolutions’.
Resolution in this context means great determination. You want to become a CEO, start and fund your business(es), graduate against all odds, raise a beautiful home with your partner, buy the most beautiful and classy cars you can think about and excel your dreams. Things may not have fallen into place in the last race and you might have spotted one or two things that served as obstacles (like in hurdles), which made all these impossible to achieve in the past year(s). We therefore look forward to the New Year to device strategies to jump over the obstacles on the way to the finishing line and that is Resolution. There is a great determination to raise the bar and excel your expectations.
To some people; they have to cultivate the habit of saving, to some it may be putting a stop to whatever they considered bad that has been dragging them back and to some, it is to double their hustle (more hard work) and so on.
Winning requires great determination and focus. In this regard, many people have quit this race of resolution before the journey gathers momentum. They couldn’t keep to their words because there was no determination to support their thoughts. The spectators' chants (boos or appraisals) has affected such athlete in the race of resolution. We just have to turn deaf ears to appraisals in form of mockery, use the boos as a parameter to step up the game so as to finish off well. We have to do all our best to kick out laziness, procrastination, thrash those unhealthy habits, shoot that shot, make those seemingly impossible moves, drop that addiction that pulls us back and I see us having the best year ever!
Happy New Year readers enjoy 2019 and remember "tick says the clock, what you have to do, do quickly". Whatever is your New Year Resolution, you must keep to it💪
