A wise man once said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a difference result.”
In 2018 you must not just want to succeed you must do what it rightly takes to succeed.
You must examine yourself, business, career,etc. and then consider these questions:
What didn’t work?
What must I stop, what must I start or continue to do?
It is the results you get from these analyses that will help you prepare adequately for 2018 in order to get and make the best of it.
Maybe you had wonderful ideas, great goals and aspirations in 2017 but didn’t know how to bring them to reality or didn’t really have what or all it takes to bring them to pass.
Being fully aware that great ideas alone don’t result in great successes and that you need a better understanding and above all (you need) a plan, a resolution for the New Year to guide your pursuits, written below are seven (7) things you need to include in your resolution in anticipation of a prosperous and fulfilled 2018.
(1) Quit Procrastinating And Be Determined To Succeed
It is said that procrastination is the grave where your dreams, aspirations, and hopes lie.
The best possible way to prepare for tomorrow is to concentrate with all your intelligence and all your enthusiasm on doing today’s work superbly today. That is the only possible way you can prepare for the future. Procrastination usually involves ignoring an unpleasant but likely more important task in favor of one that is more enjoyable or easier. Success is not obtained overnight. It comes in installments; you get a little bit today, a little bit tomorrow until the whole package is unfolded. The day you procrastinate you lose that day’s success.
If you didn’t achieve your goals this year procrastination was the likely culprit. Make 2018 the year you stop procrastinating and start getting things done. This will help to ensure that you won’t be sitting there at the end of next year wondering why you never got around to working on your goals.
Note that the really happy people are those who have broken the chains of procrastination, those who find satisfaction in doing the job at hand. They’re full of eagerness, zest and productivity. In 2018 you can be too!
(2) Read Or Write More Books
Books are an excellent way to gain a lot of knowledge on a huge variety of topics and are also a great forms of exercise for the brain. It’s not that difficult to go through twenty (20) or more books in a year; you only need to make it a habit, discover your type of books and find a bit of time for reading here and there. In 2018 develop your writing skills and start writing books. If you’re already a writer read more and write more. You’d be surprised to know just how many people out there have an interest in your works. Even if it is just a few random thoughts scribbled daily in an article you shouldn’t be afraid to give writing a go with a few tips and tricks.
(3) Start A Business
Make 2018 the year you stop thinking about starting a business and start taking action, it’s perfectly okay if it’s a small business on the side. The first step is to write a business plan. Once you get your ideas down on paper you’ll be that much more motivated to turn those ideas into reality. Most people don’t plan but planning will help you achieve your goals faster. A business plan will help you gain clarity, focus and confidence. A plan does not need to be more than one page. As you write down your goals, strategies and action steps your business becomes real.
(4) Spend Less Time On TV And Social Media
In 2018 you must make up your mind to watch less TV. The average person wastes a lot of time in front of the TV; precious time that could have been better spent developing skills, learning or keeping your body active. Once you manage to cut down on TV time you will realize just how long and productive a day can really be.
Some people might not spend hours in front of the TV or playing video games but social media has become a serious addiction among a wide range of demographics. It’s fine to stay in touch with friends and family but if you consistently spend more than an hour every day on social media it’s time to make a change.
(5) Get A Mentor
If you’ve got a big goal to accomplish find someone that already has what you want and try to learn as much as you can from them. Often we’re too proud to get advice but this can be the biggest shortcut to getting what you want which was grossly overlooked by you before.
(6) Engage In Useful Skills Or Hobbies

A hobby that you really dedicate your time to will lead you to build new skills. It helps prevent bad habits and wasting time. There is an old adage that states that “Idle hands are the devil’s workshop”. If you have good hobbies to fill up your free time then you will be less likely to spend that time on wasteful or negative activities in 2018. Hobbies help you grow in various ways including expose to new opinions and new ways to look at life.
