With the New Year comes the opportunity for a new beginning, a chance to become a better person, to change bad habits and to make time for things that matter the most.

I used to set these resolutions before but to be honest, most if not all, were never achieved. They were things I really wanted to do but I just never got the time to do them.

So how about you? Do you set New Year resolutions? Have they worked for you in the past?

Making up a New Year's resolution is like setting up a finishing line for for a horse race. U just have to put on ur blinkers and follow the intended path however tortuous it is. If u go astray midway then the resolution backfires.

So, a person's guts, commitment, willingness and perseverance will determine the effectiveness of the resolution.

You're saying how it's supposed to work is which fine but I wanted to know whether you as an individual set these resolutions and whether they work for you.

I've once set up a resolution to lose weight (just to maintain a good silhouette). For some 2 weeks i tried following a diet plan. But afterwards, my parents started to feed me with real meals(they were against my diet) and the resolution was shattered.
