Resolutions...a solution?

The idea of shedding the ill-attitudes and unhealthy habits on a good day is all-encouraging. The only thing that irks is 'on a good day', which often means taking resolutions. As pointed out by my friend Aravind, we are likely to overlook our 'resolutions' in days (or months in some cases) and soon get set to the older routines! It is like a cart in a rut! A cart even if we try, will always roll on the grooves or say impressions on the road, formed by its previous run(s). What is needed is a revolutionary change which can smash the binding shackles!

For example, consider the case of people who smoke! They couldn't quit this unhealthy habit, inspite of taking umpteen resolutions repeatedly! What is needed is a strong will, which most of them verily lack. If they keep trying relentlessly, I am sure one day they will. No special day is needed for this! Only a value-based purpose or an unwavering mindset, not to succumb to the mundane pleasures of this preset petrified habitual practice of consuming the health-eater, will make the difference! This stands true in other habits/practices too.

Every one of us are almost destined to have a thing or two in the domains of our knowledge, as 'to-be-got-rid-off' sort. The even more important thing is, we are totally clear that getting out of those vicious traps would make a larger-than-life difference in our personal lives!

A paradigm shift...

We all ape for it. May through the all-pervasive Almighty and our unflinching efforts, we all get it. Wishes!
