2009 has already begun and you probably have your own ideas of some of the goals that you want to achieve during the New Year. Noticed I donâ€™t say resolutions; personally Iâ€™m not big on resolutions. Every year around this time many Dominicans plan to make changes in the life, but after a month or two theyâ€™re back doing the same things.
There is nothing wrong with your list of resolutions, but you probably want to add a few things that will make the rest of your life better, and this time make it a goal â€“ even if itâ€™s the smallest goal. Chances are youâ€™ll accomplish that goal.
Here are 3 things that you should consider adding that will benefit yourself:
Get rid of your loser friends â€“ If is one problem weâ€™ve in our Dominican society is kids keeping the wrong company.
Hanging around with people that bring you wonâ€™t do much for you, so might as well stop hanging around with them. Some of the qualities that these people usually have are: no motivation to make money, laziness, drug addictions and always having a negative attitude.
Stop judging people â€“ itsâ€™ human nature for us to judge people by their looks, smell and even behavior. I even judge people, but we all need to stop. It doesnâ€™t do any good to judge people, so why should we keep on doing it.
Love money and drive to earn more of it â€“ I understand that you might think that money is not all in life, but in this hard economy times you need it to survive. With money you can give your kids the education they deserve and the experiences in life that you never had. You donâ€™t have to be rich, but make sure you make enough money to live a comfortable life.
And last by not least, one more thing you should consider adding to your list that will benefit other people:
Support a Local cause â€“ there are a lot of things out there that you can support, so stop wasting time and support one. For example I support the Dominica infirmary and whenever I can, I donate money to it. Even if you donâ€™t have much money to donate to a cause, you can still donate your time.
