We've lived our entire life in a tradition where someone says to himself/herself about his/her New Year's resolution. Why is it that way? People believe that if they state their New Year's Resolution every year, it might come true. Well, there's nothing wrong with that. It keeps us in line, it keeps us motivated to do the things we wanted to do. As the famous line says, "What the body perceives, the mind will achieve." In psychology, the term "self-fulfilling prophecy" is a sociological term used to pronounce a prediction that causes itself to become true. Therefore, the process by which a person's expectations of someone/or self can lead to someone acting in ways that confirm expectations." It's like you were trying to eat, but don't do anything. Another example is that you're fat and you say you wanted to be sexy, but you don't do anything again. So, what's the point of this New Year's Resolution thing, I think it's all right to believe in something you want, but to accompany it with FULL EFFORT. Nothing is going to happen with lazy people.
