Do you notice that every new year resolution is more an advertisement?
A bit of a show-off.
A testament to one’s capability and willpower.
Harder the resolution, greater the person.
I will not drink.
I will lose 10 kgs.
(always a round number, never “I will lose 6.4 kgs)
I will climb the mountain. Multiple times.
I will learn to play a musical instrument.
I will go to Paris, Mount Abu, Australia…….
I will stop smoking.
I will read 52 books.
Yada yada yada…..
The world revolves around “I”
How about looking outwards
When will I get to hear resolutions like
I will be the reason why someone is happy
Three people will smile each day because of me
I will not hurt anyone
I will treat everyone with respect (be it my father or a total stranger)
I will not waste food
You like challenges don’t you?
Go ahead and tell me which will be harder to implement
Then shout from the rooftop on 31st December 2017.
