There's Still Time To Make Resolutions This Year!


Did you make new year's resolutions at the beginning of January? How have they worked out? Like many people, you may find that by now they have fallen by the wayside. It doesn’t have to take long. After all, we may have promised ourselves that this year will definitely be the year we stick to our plans, but once again, it hasn’t happened.



But it’s not too late. The first of January is not the only time you can give yourself a new challenge. Why not start again now? After all, it’s how you deal with failure that counts. Did you know the Chinese word for crisis and opportunity are one and the same? So you can treat things that don’t go as well as you might have hoped with a better perspective, if you apply some positive thinking, and act on it! That’s the most significant bit. Procrastinating isn’t going to help. If you’re not going to do whatever it is, that is important to you now? When are you going to do it?

If procrastination is your problem, then there's no point in someone to just telling you to get on with it. You know that yourself already. Work out the reasons behind why you’re trying to put things off. Is it a self-confidence issue? Do you fear failure? Whatever it is, you need to work out a strategy to overcome it. Sometimes you just have to, as they say, feel the fear and do it anyway.

Of course, life isn’t always that easy. If you have any sort of disability, it can make things twice as hard. An NDIS provider can help point you in the right direction. There are lots of assistance schemes and different bodies that can assist you in following your dreams. If you receive disability funding in Australia, then you could be eligible for this plan, and it won’t cost you a cent.



If you just need a little extra support towards your goals, then no one has to do it alone. Even if you don’t have any particular circumstances, you can still find support. For example, if your goal is to shed a few pounds, slimming groups where there is support given are a proven way to lose weight. You’re more likely to be successful if you have others in the same boat as you to talk to and share stories with. Doing anything alone is tough, and it helps to ease the burden.



Maybe you’d like to learn a new skill. Enlist a friend to come along with you to a class. If no one is interested in the same things as you, why not go alone? There will be people in the same boat as you, and they'll probably be feeling self-conscious, so don’t worry you're on your own. It’s a great way to learn new skills and make new friends. You could find yourself with a whole new social life too. What’s stopping you?
