The year is finally drawing to a close and it is amazing to know that we have come this far. As long as this journey might have been for some, we have to acknowledge the fact that it is a great opportunity to be alive to see it come to an end.
We have come to that time of the year where the streets are filled with love, laughter and celebration as people gather and enjoy the holidays. With students being at home at this time of the year, you should not get carried away with the activities by refusing to make adequate plans for the new year.
It is important for one to make adequate plans for the new year in order not to be taken by surprise when the events of the new year start to unroll. There are so many things that need to be done at this time of the year and we would not want you to miss not having a solid plan for the new year.
It is hoped that year 2017 will be better year and it is advisable for you to make plans and list the things you want to achieve in the new year. This list will serve as a guide and help you set your priorities right. It is expected that you have one or two things in mind concerning the new year.
Find below the 3 major things you need to do before the year runs out:
1. Draw a plan
If you think all you have to do to is eat, make merry and dance with less than 24 hours to the end of the year, then you need to think again.
Sit down and make concrete plans about the things you want to achieve in the coming year. These plans should come in batches so that you do not get stranded when one fails.
Re-evaluate the steps you have taken this year and see what could have been done better. In drawing plans for the new year, your success story in this year will determine what direction you should go.
Avoid making the same mistakes.
2. Settle your debts
Going into a new year is no joke; everyone desires a fresh start as new plans are launched and better outcomes are expected.
Before the end of this year, make effort to settle the debts you can and put it in your to-do-list to settle the others as soon as you settle down in the new year.
Still on clearing debts, visit or call loved ones in order for them to know you appreciate their presence this year. Also, you should try and fulfill every promise you have made in the past and make it a point of duty to stop making promises if you do not fulfill them.
Do not lose your integrity and self worth because you do not put your mouth where your money is. Remember this will help your future relationship with people.
Have you taken the time to consider how you got to where you are in life? Some of our loved ones who are dead had dreams and goals before they passed on. They had businesses that thrived and fetched them lots of money, yet, they died. This means that we live by grace.
As you are preparing to move into a new year, do not leave everything to fate. Remember heaven helps those who help themselves. Pray like your life depends on it while intensifying the efforts you put into the thing you do and you will record tremendous success.
The words you utter play an important role in your life, destinies have been changed with prayers. So while writing your new year resolutions, do not forget to add this important one. Do not rely on luck alone.
Happy new year!!!
