New Year’s Resolutions: An Overview

What is a New Years resolution? In the words of Benjamin Franklin, “A resolution is a promise that man makes to himself either to improve upon flaws in one’s self or to revive something that has brought great joy to one’s life.” At the dawning of a new year millions of people, make resolutions just for those purposes. Sadly, only 19% of those people act on the resolutions that they have made. Personality, I have three resolutions for myself this year. They each symbolize a portion of my life that I believe to need some improvement. The first of the three is that I would like to begin to play tennis again. It was once my favorite sport. Secondly, I would like to correlate with different groups of people. Recently, I have discovered myself staying with a certain group of people. It is important to me that I meet new people and make new friends. Thirdly, I am looking forward to learning how to drive. Driving is a very exhilarating part of my life. Even thought only 19% of New Years resolutions come true, I am looking forward to working toward all of my goals.

When I first began to play tennis, I actually loathed the sport. However, as time passed, I began to develop a certain fondness for the game. In time, I could not go more than a few days without playing. Eventually, an increasing amount of activities in my life began to hinder my ability to play the sport that I love. Despite my hectic schedule, I somehow found time to play. Then suddenly, I just could not manage to keep playing and have not for several months. Therefore, there are several reasons for my desire to revive my love of tennis. Foremost, it is an excellent activity to do with my entire family. My family is of the utmost importance to me. Secondly, tennis is wonderful for the body. It keeps you in shape and healthy. Lastly, tennis is something that I love to do. It allows me to release energy and frustration in a positive way.

Next, I believe that I need to diversify my group of friends. Currently, I feel as if I am missing out on something life because all of my friends are just like me. I believe that life would be a lot more interesting if I had a more diverse group of friends. Every person brings something new and personal to the world. I usually gravitate toward people that are must like me. This year, I am going to work additionally hard to find people that are interesting and people that offer something new to my everyday life. In addition, I believe that I need to more excepting of people that are different, because they may be some of the nicest, funniest, and most caring people in the entire world and I would never even get the pleasure of getting to know the.

Finally, perhaps the most important resolution out of them all, I am devoted to learning how to drive. Knowing how to properly operate an automobile is not only a luxury. It is also a necessity in today’s world. We live in a world that is of great amplitude and great speed. Without the proper means of transportation, we can miss a lot in life in a short amount of time. Driving is the solitary thing that teens look forward to from the time they turn 13 until the very day they receive their license. I am not unlike any other teen. I too have looked forward to getting my drivers license for several years, and am carefully counting the days until I am eligible. It will take a lot of hard work and determination, but I believe that the return will be worth every second of studying and practice.

In conclusion, there are several different reasons that people make new years resolutions. Accordingly, there are several different way of going about taking them form possibilities to actualities. Thousands of resolutions made every year and only small portions of them are put into action. In the end, I suppose that one might say that I have made a fourth resolution. The fourth is that I am going to work very hard to obtain all three of my resolutions this year.
