So 2014 is already here and you’re wondering, “What New Year’s resolutions do I want to create and stick to this year?”
Well, this is a common question. There are many resolutions you can create for yourself. But how committed are you to those resolutions.
New Year’s resolutions are aimed at giving you a clean start in the New Year. When you do this, you want to create ones that will help you feel good about yourself in the process. When you factor in personal growth, creating them may become a bit easier.
Personal growth involves learning more about yourself, what you want out of life, how you want to get there, and maybe even who you want at your side as you take steps to meet your resolutions.
Consider these three suggestions as you start making your New Year’s resolutions.
First, what makes you happy? Whatever the answer is to that question, make sure you have more of it in the New Year. If it’s something healthy, then definitely, make an effort to increase whatever it is. Being happy helps you maintain physical and mental well-being throughout the year.
Second, volunteer to help a cause you feel passionate about. Maybe in the past you had considered it but had never really given into your urge to help others by volunteering. There are many places in your area which could surely use a few extra hands to help out. In Miami alone, there are several places such as:
- Safe Space
- The Yes Institute
- Camillus House
- Miami Children’s Museum
- Zoo Miami
The list really is endless!
Finally, what do you consider your ‘calling’ in life? Do you want to change careers? Maybe get married? Start a family? Whatever you feel you are destined to do, take steps to get a bit closer to your goal this year. Each step you take reinforces your dreams and abilities to get there.
How will your 2014 New Year’s resolutions help you with your personal growth?
