Since we’re coming to the end of the Year a lot of us tend to make promises to ourselves that we tend not to keep also known as New Year Resolutions.

“Easier said than done,” is what you might hear from everybody else whenever you talk about your goals for the coming year. Whether it’s cutting down on your eating habits, stopping drinking alcohol, stopping smoking or the most common one which is to start working out and going to the Gym more.

It could be a promise you make yourself for the coming year or maybe a promise made for somebody else like a loved one you hold so dear to your heart that you are willing to change a few things for them. But keeping to those promises that you have made, may not always be easy. It’s like every time you try to make good on those promises or in this case those New Year Resolutions that you’ve set out to do, there’s like this push and pull fight that you have with your own self.

In other words, that tug-of-war that you are experiencing is all in your mind and trying to fight your own desires is one of the biggest obstacles that you will have to overcome. Having supportive people around you can immensely help you on that quest but at the end of the day, it will all come down to you and your determination.

So if you already have a clear idea of what you want your New Year’s Resolution to be, make sure when you feel like doing what it is you wanted to give up in the first place, tell yourself, “I CAN DO THIS”.
