2012 New Years Resolution - December 27th 2011, 05:06 AM

Ok so like every year I want my New Years Resolution to contain goals that seem just short of being impossible for me (i do this basically to "reach for the skies" so that even though I rarely achieve more than 40% of these goals, I still accomplish a heck of alot. For example within the last years I have accomplished about 13 of my 38 goals roughly 34% last year I got 44%. I am 17 these goals included becoming a leader of a club at school that had over 15 members, acquiring 4000$ through work and investments while achieving honoroll 3 out of 4 MP) like I said things that are possible to anyone, just that you have to work for. I also want to have goals that will set me apart from everyone else when I go to college in the fall. So i need some help. I need help trying to figure out if these are good goals, and what other goals i should add

Being more outgoing. (get 50 phone numbers symbolizing friendship)
acquiring 10,000$ through work and investing
forging a six pack
beating my 7:24 mile
make the dean's list for my college

my lists arer usually 15-30 things goals long, but last year I could only think of 9 and now I can only think of 5, but I want more because I feel bad if i dont atleast try to over achieve. Its actually part of a medical diagnosis i got a few years back called "fear of failure" in which I have to over achieve time and time again or will suffer from feeling pitiful. please i need your help

Even though you have less goals for yourself, it sounds like they're more meaningful and are going to make a healthier, more positive impact on your life, and I just think that's absolutely wonderful. To me, that says that you've kind of refined your idea of the person you'd like to be, and while I'm always a fan of being YOU, these to me seem like ideas for self-improvement. And that's awesome.

My roommate and I used to set new years resolutions before we got to college, but once we talked about it, we decided not to even wait til the new year! If we want to see a change in ourselves, we go ahead and try to make that change and hold each other accountable for that! The reason I mention this is because I want to ask if you have someone like that, who can hold you accountable for reaching these goals?

If not, you better sure as heck believe I'll be checkin' in with you at least once every month or so to be asking you for progress in all of these things. Celebrate the small victories, okay? Everything you achieve is important to celebrate.

Good luck!

I think my main New Years Resolution wiIl be to keep all of the great and wonderful friends that I've made this year.

I've made the greatest friends within the past four months that I could ever imagine having, and I'm so thankful for every single one of them. <3

When you can't find your way home,
and when life gets too hard to face on your own.
I will stand as a light through the darkness unknown,
I will walk with you, so you're never alone.

@katrina- yeah I like the bigger goals more too, but I do recognize the small victories and yeah I have a friend that helps me push myself, but you can make sure I'm following up . What other goals should I put on my list?
@savealife- that sounds like a great resolution.
@kadyCHAOS- thats really cool, I'm going to go for nursing this coming year
