Every year whole world celebrates New Year with full of fun and in a lot of different ways. Each place and person has different tradition to celebrate the New Year. And most Important is the partying with booze and dance which is mostly common in the youngsters. But, apart from partying there is one major common thing we are missing here is the New Year resolution. A New Year resolution is tradition which is mostly popular in western culture but found almost everywhere. In this tradition a person makes a promise to himself to change an undesirable trait of him or adopt probity to improve his life and morals. The popular goals of this promise is improving physical well-being, mental well-being, finances, career, education, help others etc.
The New Year have many religious parallels. In the very past, Babylonians first started this tradition. They made promise to their gods that they would pay their debts at the start of each year. After that Romans also started to began each year by making promises to their god Janus. In the Medieval era the Knights followed this tradition by taking peacock vow. And In this way tradition of New Year Resolution came to this 21st century.
Although being a popular tradition, yet it is limited in urban areas and middle to high class people. Mostly poor and rural people don’t follow this because they have much hardship in their life to enjoy this. So, a very less people in comparison to the world’s population follow this important New Year tradition. And Apart from being an important tradition, in present days New Year Resolution has become a fun fact. The success rate of this tradition is very less. Most of the people are failing to keep their resolution making this New Year Resolution a fun fact. A Study was done on the success rate of New Year Resolution in 2007 by Richard Wiseman from university of Bristol in which around 3000 people were involved. The statistics of the study showed that only 12% of participants kept their resolution successfully while 88% of participants who set New Year Resolution failed and the fun fact is that 52% of failed participants were very confident about their success at the beginning. There are many reasons for participants failing their new year resolution.

3. New Fitness Seekers
The people tired from being called unfit physically with extra fat come under this category. No one wants to be unfit. But to be fit, it requires extra efforts like exercise, morning jogging, less calorie intake etc. So, most of them make an ultimate resolution on New Year eve to achieve their fitness goal. And their confidence is visible in their eyes in the beginning. A very few of them succeed. How can anyone eat salad, corn flakes etc who loves to eat samosa, pizza, fried potato and much more calorie? It’s really tough dude. And it is also tough to wake up in the morning to run when the world is sleeping in their cozy bed. Why can’t they sleep instead of running like a dog? Well these thoughts are not mine. These are the excuses New Fitness Seekers make to break their ultimate resolution.
4. Over Sleeping people
The over sleeper is the one whose goal is to sleep a lot to achieve their dream, and of course in their dreams only. These people spend whole day by sticking to their bed like a bed bug. Of course they do realize their loss in that. That’s why sometimes they do some things other than sleeping like making a New year resolution: a fun fact by breaking it ultimately.
5. Engineering Students
The ultimate resolution makers are the Engineering students. Well I am not sure about the rest of the world, but in India it is certainly there. At every New Year eve they make a promise that they will study from the beginning of the semester. But, how this can be possible? After all they are engineering students and studying from start of the semester is a sin. So, they follow their pious ritual of studying a whole 2000 pages just a day before the exam. New Year Resolution: a fun fact is 100% applicable to them.
6. Internet Addicts
Usage of social sites or apps like facebook, instagram, snapchat and musicly are on its boom. We start and end our day with the mobile’s click. Well it is a technological era and it’s good to be in touch with it. But, some users have adopted this internet technology as an addict. 80% of their time got wasted on their phone while surfing internet, stalking others on social sites, and taking un-natural selfies. These people also try to reduce their time on phone by making promises, one of them is the New Year Resolution. But, the funny part is even the resolution is taken on a social site as a post or tweet. Uploading 100s of selfies on the social account and claiming that I am going to stop using internet more often. What a joke! This is ironically a New Year Resolution fun fact.
7. The Backlog holders
First one: This is my New Year’s Resolution that I will study sincerely from this instant only. I have to clear all my 7 my backlogs. Dude, I will study much harder this time. As harder as it can melt iron and as swift as, even I may fly in the sky!
Second one: Okay, Dude I know you will rock it. By the way I am going to play PubG with others. Are u coming? No! you must study. Ok by dude, you just study.
First one: Okay wait, I will follow my resolution from tomorrow onwards. Let’s play now!
So much crap! This is how one may have that much backlogs by making New Year Resolution a fun fact.
8. Copy Cat
This category of people does not make their own decisions they just copy others. Even their New year resolution is also influenced by others. Here is the demo.Copy Cat: Okay! Tom resolute to exercise from tomorrow onwards. Exercise is good for health, I would also go for it. My best friend resolute for not eating chicken, I will also follow him but fish would work for me. Rina resolute to jump off the cliff tomorrow, should I follow her too? Oh! I am so confused.
9. Over enthusiastic pal
These people are so much excited for the new coming year that they make a dozen of New Year resolution to follow. They just want to turn a mountain upside down. They try to make himself or herself a complete different person in just one day. And the very next day they forget half a dozen of their resolutions.
10. Trying to instantly Disciplined
Some great people are also there on this planet who makes their day a night and vice versa. They stay awake like an owl in the night playing cards, games, watching videos. And when it’s time to go for work or study they just sleep like a panda. This routine goes on un-interrupted. Then comes a new year when these owls resolute to be disciplined and follow a regular human routine. But, this is just for one day. And the owl again becomes the owl.
11. Saving Huge Money
Someone spending money like water can’t just stop doing that in one day. Despite of this fact such people ironically make New Year Resolution for saving huge money and become a millionaire with that saving. And at the same time they are also spending 1000s of money over partying. Saving is possible but it should be in step by step.
Common Reasons of New Year Resolution to fail
1. Being Lazy: this is the number one reason for not following the resolution.
2. Unrealistic goals: People make such goals that can’t be achieved. For example: Salary is 10000 rupee and you resolute to save 5000 rupee. You have 4 members in your family and you are the sole earner. How is that possible?
3. Too many goals: Step by step change is much more effective. If you try to change a dozens of things together, none of them would change efficiently.
4. Not too motivated: Resolutions made just for formality can never succeed.
5. Copying others: New Year’s resolution is all about making promise to yourself. Then that promise must be only yours.
6. Track of your success: One of the major reasons of failure of New Year Resolution is people often forget their promises and do not keep track of their success.
7. Not liking the process: Promises are hard to keep, and goals are achieved via paths full of thorns. And often we don’t like those thorns. For example: to be fit we need to do dieting and exercise. But, who likes to eat salads and disturb their morning sleep.
Making promises on each New Year eve to become a better person is the best thing. This is the important tradition followed on each New Year eve, from centuries. But, in present it has become a matter of fun. There are so many funny illustrations I have mentioned in this article proving that.
