With every new year people find it necessary to give themselves unrealistic expectations or goals to accomplish from the time the clock strikes 12. Having ambition or wanting to be better is useful; it allows us the ability to push ourselves to the limit, stay positive and become focused. However, making impossible objectives is sure to set one up for failure. It’s exciting to project with hope for the future, but with the wrong energy or strategies we will only be left feeling despondent; and worse we may become discouraged to take on any challenges again. A good way to go about resolutions successfully is finding that balance between drive and also being gentle with yourself.
