My Top 5 New Year’s Resolutions
Happy New Year.
Here are my top 5 New Year’s Resolutions:
(Do Not Care About People)
Don’t judge me if you don’t know what it means. It means don’t worry about what people think and do and why. Because if you would, you’d never stop (worrying).
Much smarter people than I have come to the same conclusion and I’m sure it’s true. Matter of fact, this is one of the most important realizations I ever had in my life, and I only wish it could have come around sooner.
So I want to share it with you, and -taken to heart- it can improve your life beyond measure.
Whenever I’m bothered by some moron and their behavior or opinion, I literally say to my self:
“DO – NOT – CARE – ABOUT – PEOPLE!!!”
Does that mean I’m a heartless bastard? Nope. Others need help, you help them, for sure. But don’t let their disturbed minds, opinions, and even actions bother you, if you can help it at all.
2. Struggling is BS
We get raised believing that struggling is a good thing. Well that is bull. Don’t get me wrong, now, this doesn’t mean hard work, or being determined. It means STRUGGLING.
Because when you struggle, something is wrong. The smart guy or gal takes a step back and analyzes the situation: Hmmm, something is wrong, why am I struggling? What exactly is the problem?
Because normally, you work hard and you work smart and you move towards your goals steadily, sometimes faster, sometimes slower, but you’re making progress all the while.
Not when you’re struggling. That’s basically akin to standing still. Spinning your wheels.
You might compare it to banging your head against a wall.
A thick, big brick wall. Because that’s what it is.
Now, if you’re smart, you step back and say: “Oh, look, there’s a wall!, Should I bang my head against it? Er…I don’t THINK so? Let me walk around it… Hey! There’s a door, let’s use that instead.
Whilst the poor bastard over there is banging away…and banging…and banging. And getting one MOTHER of a headache in the process.
He might break through the wall one of these days, with a lot of bruises and not much to show for.
But the smart guy? He’s already about a 100 walls ahead. And HE doesn’t even get a headache…catch my drift?
Struggling? Is the biggest bullshit ever. Please believe me, make you life easier AND more successful.
3. Show And Tell
That’s one thing I just realized recently. Say you have those that you love: your wife, your kid, your parents, your brother, your dog (last but not least). You know you love them, they know you love them, no need to say so, no need to show it. Right?
Imagine a Dad, giving his little boy a hug, saying: “I love you, son. And I want you to know that I’m proud of you. Proud. You’re the best: the best in the west! You mean the world to me, and don’t you ever forget it, you hear?”
Do you think he will? Not in a million years.
I think this is one of the most important things: a flower, a hug, a kiss, a Thank You…mean it, and say it.
4. Be The Best Friend I Can Be
Just a decision I made. Family and Friends, what’s more important? So make the most of it.
5. We’re Here and Now, Anyways
So whilst we’re here, let’s make it as pleasurable for everybody as possible. I try to remember this whenever I interact with others: Christmas Dinner with the family or standing in line at the grocery store, the same thing applies.
Isn’t that an awesome resolution?
Just saw this on Facebook, and it’s THE perfect New Year’s Video, imo:
