Your New Year Resolutions For 2008? by Krrush(m): 2:33am On Dec 02, 2007
My 2008 New Year's Resolution: Was I True To 2007's?

Why do we even make them? New years' resolutions I mean.

I think its borne out of an innate desire to SUCCEED.And so we set goals,even subconscious ones.

My 2007 one was not pronounced ''aloud''. It was a combination of several desires like ''meeting my set financial target'',' 'being a more tolerant person'',' 'finally starting my exercise schedules, own great abs'', ''be less of a harsh dad to my 7yr old'',''e.t.c'',

Did I stay true to all? , Tell you what, gist me some of yours then we go here how far?

So, 2008's new year resolution?

Hi guyz,

I believe that each and everyone of us have a great plan for 2008, but i will implore you to put all your predicaments and dilemma of 2007 to past. I believe that they (predicaments and dilemma) are just an obstacles that makes you to be more stronger. Just try to be focused and determined. I want you to put the below followings into consideration. God has already bless me, and all my plans are going well as planned, so 2008 will be additional success to me. Happy ile-ya lol and merry xmas in advance. Please try and stay out of trouble. kiss

1) life is just a blank slate, what matters most is what you write on it.

2) The difference between the possible and the impossible is with the person.

3) Don't let things that are less important be at the expense of important things.

4) The price of success are; hard work, dedication, and unremitting devotion to what you want to see happen.

5) What you think of yourself is more important than what others think about you.

6) The moment you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for.

7) Fail to plan is plan to fail.

cool It is the constant and determined effort that breaks down all resistance, sweeps away all obstacles.

I learnt something recently, people are more serious about their resolutions by January - March, when they go further their zeal die out. and they go back to that which they promised themselves not to do. It is a syndrome called "never finish it" syndrome.

Well I plan to work more on my voice,
Increase my relationship with God,
Go for my Masters,
Help the needy.

May God help me.

Out of my last year's resolution I fulfilled 70%.

How will you rAte me. tongue
Re: Your New Year Resolutions For 2008? by biggozz(m): 11:15pm On Dec 26, 2007
make the moment count, no more future.
just discovered it is the cure to procrastination and source of continual fulfillment.

(tho i started 2 weeks ago to implement it)

Pls I recommend the book( RULES OF LIFE- Richard Templar) it inspired me.

Re: Your New Year Resolutions For 2008? by topkin(m): 11:42pm On Dec 26, 2007
I think New Year Resolution is a culture that was handed down to us by generations past. The reason why people don't keep it is because the society/economy is a dynamic one. The circustances surrounding when a resolution was made will differ later hence resulting to an envisaged plan not being attained.

Personally, I think daily resolutions endure more than new year resolutions.
Re: Your New Year Resolutions For 2008? by tundewoods(m): 12:07am On Dec 27, 2007

Re: Your New Year Resolutions For 2008? by lawyer(m): 2:18am On Dec 27, 2007
Rubbish! There is no such thing as a new year resolution. We all hypocritically stand in front of God on new year's day in churches and mosques and deliever our own versions of the new year budget as resolutions which by mid februray we have already forgotten we made such silly promises to keep.

How many of us for donkey years past have made up our minds to stop smoking, fornicating, back bitting, cheat, reconcile with our families, stop drinking, hope to do very well in school, help to improve lives and probably find another fool proof strategy to woo more business clients and increase our potentials psychologially, spiritually, financially and mentally and end up repeating the same old mantra next year as if we didnt say it in 1989, 1996, 2001 and more memorably in 2007.

Why is only on the 31st of december we remember when to say those silly resolutions. The women would scream to God and within " oh i want to have that child at last or have another baby boy or give me a better boyfriend or make my marriage work or relationship" and the boys will scream out loud " Oh God let my business boom, let my car finally show this year, let my money show, let the society know i have arrived and a host of a million twaddles and rubbish they hope and wish to accomplish"

Well i have got news for all the dreamers and optimists. The cloud is not turning to pink on the 31st of december and the moon will not change to the sun on the first of january. Your nauseating boyfriend will still be around you, your cheating girlfriend will still arouse more boys attention, your sniveling mother inlaw will still harrass you, your pesky granny will not die and still hound you, your shares in the banks will still appreciate and depreciate, danfo and okada riders will still be a menace to the society, nepa will continue to haunt us, the roads will still be death traps, you wont stop smoking until the doctor waves a red flag about your lungs, you wont stop drinking until you pass out in a gutter, you wont stop cheating until your caught red handed and disgraced, you wont make more money until you draw up a business plan that is feasible and realistic and you wont stop going to miracle crusades because you have a fetish for going to such places to pray for get rich quick schemes and inshort, its another day in the life of an ordinary nigerian. So get over it and live your life the way you were living on october 14 and not thinking the sky will fall on october 15. It's just another day.


I can remember how i was under the cloud of those that paid much importance to this new year resolution garbage about 20 years ago and i kept on saying i would change and i would do this and that. Each passing year was worse off than the latter and until i realised that it wasnt necessary, things began to happen. Always expect the unexpected and most of the time it favours you when you dont place much importance to it. People would come out here and say you should have the will power, discipline and determination and spiritual help to make your resolutions come true but its all a load of crap. How do you determine within yourself to stop boozing, smoking and fornicating in 365 days and not falther and go back to your old crazy ways that you feel comfortable in? What will power makes you stop cheating, back stabbing, lying and trampling on other people's back to snatch every financial opportunity that comes your way? If your the owner of a petrol station and there is fuel scarcity, what will power prevents you from hiking the prices to make more money? But you will be the first to tell God and yourself on the 31st of dec, no more cheating and stealing! How laughable nigerians can be atimesgrin If your a student tell me you wont attempt to settle any of your exams this semester or year or try and sleep with the favoured lecturer to gain that all desired 2:1 or 2:2 so as to be eligible to work in zenith?

Abeg so my new year resolution is to break up with more girls, booze and smoke more, rip more people off financially, climb the backs of other people till i get to the top, take no prisoners and trample on anyone that gets into my way of success, scheme and connive more and finally date the love of my life pilgrim 1 grin because it just another normal day in my life and in the lives of millions of Nigerians and it's pathetic for you to remotely deny it.

Life is too short so play more! wink
