Every year, millions of people around the globe generate new year resolutions to start their new year. The new year resolutions often contain goals, that either we didn’t achieve in the previous year, or are eager to attain in the next year.
New year Resolutions
New year resolution always consists of two emotions, “Hope and Fear.” The hope of fulfilling our desired goals, and fear of not being able to accomplish what we need. There are many reasons some resolutions fail. Some include facing the fear of rejection, laziness, lack of determination, or certain circumstances. According to the study conducted by “University of Scranton,” about 8% achieve their goals while about 80% or more tend to fail in accomplishing their goals. This is quite scary and must be taken into consideration.
Instead of being among the failures, why not try being among the remaining 8% of people who accomplish their goals and fulfill their new year resolutions. For this, we must have a clear idea of what we truly want to achieve.

Therefore, health is extremely important. Also, self-pampering gives you a sense of satisfaction and a “me-time” you always wanted. Take care of yourself this year as life is more important.
Build a Passive Income
In conditions like Covid-19, you need to build a passive income for yourself. If you are a mom with no job but very busy in your daily base life, or if you are a professional but don’t earn enough? Then building a passive income is a must to do. Passive income is the one that does not take much effort to earn. It’s like a small investment that gives you tremendous returns. Some of the passive income’s ideas include:
- Selling a product or service
- Rent Income
- Affiliate marketing
- Income through blogs or vlogs
- Profit from saving accounts.
