Most of us make resolutions for the new year and hope everything will change magically in this year but as the days pass on so does the enthusiasm and the new resolutions are left behind to solve the old issues first from the previous year. The same story is repeated for most of us year on year.
The problem is that we try to set unrealistic aims and goals, even though it’s OK to set your aim/ goal high but also must realize that we can only reach there with smaller steps and achievements. A lot of people tend to give up when they set the target too high and realize they are not getting close to it.
The idea is to set the bigger target and then divide it into smaller steps and try to achieve those gradually e.g. set a goal to loose 10 kg in 6 months but mini goals of 1-2 kg a month and then when you work your way to the monthly goal and achieving it will boost your moral and keep you going for the next step and finally achieve your main/ bigger goal.
Happy New Year

My wife and kids prepared for me a special father’s day cake and beautiful card to go along. All I can say is that being a father is a blessing and a privilege. I feel that many married couples delay having a child with reasons like financial stability or just to enjoy more fun time but I can assure that the joy and satisfaction a child bring into your life cannot be substituted with any amount of partying, fun time or money. And my prayers for those who are trying but yet to be successful in having a child.
