Come December and everyone starts thinking about making resolutions for the upcoming year. These resolutions are discussed and planned quite seriously and yet as the year begins, many of you do not bother sticking to the resolutions that you made. The reason – you do not attach too much importance to resolutions or you do not want to step out of your comfort zone. Whatever be the reason, New Year resolutions are often broken within the first month itself. So, should you make resolutions in the first place?
Yes, you should and you should also stick to them. Resolutions have one goal, to push you to do something better and correct your mistakes. If you make a resolution for losing weight it is beneficial from the health point of view. Similarly, if you are looking for a new source of income or giving up on unnecessary spending, it is beneficial from the financial viewpoint. So, resolutions are always a positive step towards the right direction and should not be missed.
Here are some reasons why you and your clients should make resolutions –
- Resolutions motivate you
Motivation is needed to achieve success at whatever you do and resolutions do just that. When you and your clients make resolutions at the end of the year, you are pledging to start the next year on a positive note. This positive outlook helps motivate you to take that first step in your resolution. Thereafter, if you persevere and are guided by motivation, you can make your resolutions successful and get the benefit which the fulfilment of the resolution gives.
- They help you reflect
When you make resolutions, you reflect on the positive changes which you want to make in your life. You reflect on your health and whether you need to make healthy choices. Similarly you reflect on your finances and see if there are changes which might have a positive impact on your financial status. This reflection helps you figure out what’s wrong and then take corrective measures to rectify the same.
- For financial wellness
The most commonly made resolutions involve money and when you make them to set your financial matters straight, you become financially well. Resolutions like limiting overspending, paying your debts on time, investing in insurance plans, reviewing your portfolio, etc. help in achieving financial wellness and are, therefore, important.
- For a healthy living
Another common topic of resolutions is your health. You resolve to shed those extra pounds, eat healthy, engage in exercising, give up stressful habits, etc. These resolutions make a positive impact on your health and help you live a healthy life.
The New Year is round the corner and if you have not yet made any resolutions, it is time you do so. Resolutions are positive promises that you make with yourself and they are only beneficial. So, talk to your clients and urge them to make resolutions and you should do the same too. Also, remind your clients about their resolutions as the New Year begins so that they can stick to the promises that they made and reap the rewards of their resolutions. You should also write down your resolutions and stick it someplace where you would be constantly reminded of them. A little self-discipline and you can also reap the benefits of your own resolutions. So, what are you and your clients resolving this year?
