Discover 5 Tips for Your New Year’s Resolution

It’s 31st of December 2011 and it is New Year’s Eve again. Every year is always the same. People partying, people wishing for good luck next year, better financial condition, wishing to have a new home, hoping to get married soon, hope to get pregnant soon etc, etc and etc. The list will never end. We wish for something better for next year.

I do not have any particular new year’s wish. But I always have resolution for every New Year, and every New Year I will have some resolutions that I will do for that New Year. About 2 months ago I was thinking what I will do or what are my resolutions that I can share with you guys.

So here I will share with you some of my 5 resolution for next year, and it is always relevant for years to come. It does not matter what is your situation now, these resolution will be your best wish to make your condition better.

1. Stay healthy

If I say “stay healthy”, it means that you will do whatever it takes to make your body fit, not getting sick. Always stay up all night is not healthy. Watching TV too much is not healthy. Smoking is not healthy. You must know this already. And I believe that you get a lot of information how to stay and be healthy from books, magazines or TV programs. So now it is time to do it and do it now.

2. Pay yourself first.

I read Robert T. Kiyosaki’s famous best selling book “Rich Dad Poor Dad”. In there he said about “pay yourself first”. What it means is that for every dollar you earn, you must put aside percentage of that dollar to be used by you FIRST. Not spend it or even worst, pay your debt. I know this is very hard for some people. But if you want to improve your financial situation, you must do this. Start with 3% of your earn income to be put aside as your saving, and then 3% for your investment strategy. That way, every month you will have some money for you only.

3. Go Green

When I say go green, it does not mean plant more tree or ride a bike instead of car. But “go green” can be anything that you do that DO NOT compromise our mother earth. For example: Have you ever used reusable bottle like Tupperware? If you use this refill and reusable bottle, you can always carry your own water with you without having to buy new one when you thirsty. This way, you reduce the use of plastic and you can always refill your bottle with new water when you get home. And you save money too…. :)

4. Make donation

How many times a year we make donation? I don’t think we as human ever consciously and willingly to make donation on regular basis like once a year or once a month or once every 6 months without wanting something in return, right? So from now on, we make donation on regular basis. It does not matter if once a year as long as you make donation. You can donate your old clothes, old furniture, old jackets, unused tools and any other stuff that you have hanging around your house that you no longer have any use of it. Donate to your favorite church, your favorite non profit organization like Red Cross or Salvation Army, orphaned houses or other non profit organizations.

5. Gratitute

We live the world of greed. How do we protect ourselves from those greedy people? I am not saying that greed is bad. But I see people sometimes crush and burn because they do not feel satisfy within themselves. So I am suggesting be thankful for everything that you have already had. What you have accomplished already. Do not pursue something that is out of reach. Even though there is quote “Put your dream as high as the star”, but I believe if the time is not right, no matter how hard you try, you still have to wait. So from now on, do your best to achieve what you always wanted, to achieve your dream, but on the other hand, be thankful for what you have. Be thankful that you still have your family to support you. Be thankful that your situation is a lot better than most people. Be thankful that you still have 3 meals a day. Be thankful that you still can sleep on a nice comfy bed. Be thankful for everything around you. And yes… gratitude is the last word I like to share with you.

So… there you have my 5 resolutions for your New Year. I wish you all the best luck in the world. God Bless!
