The festive season is well and truly done and dusted and, hopefully, we can all look forward to a very rewarding year ahead. Many of us will have made some new resolutions but it won’t surprise YJA readers that half of all resolutions probably fail, so to succeed goals need to be realistic – and meaningful too!

What can we do to make the best of 2018? Here are a few tips:

Find your purpose

The two greatest days of your life are when you’re born and the day that you find your purpose. Without knowing your purpose, life is rather like running on a hamster wheel but getting nowhere.

Make a New Year’s resolution

If you succeed then that’s amazing, but if you don’t then it’s not the end of the world. Surely though, a year will be more exciting if it’s full of new challenges!

Attitude or gratitude

Look around, appreciate the things you have and don’t be ungrateful. See the beauty of what you have and not be jealous of what other people have.

Make fear an illusion

Learn that fear is usually an illusion, most of the time it doesn’t exist, it’s just you worrying.

Be ambitious

Don’t lack ambition, focus on what you want to do and set yourself goals to aim for.


Happy New Year!
