As we approach the year 2016, there are some things that must be taken into consideration if you really want your 2016 to be better than 2015. There are some things that must be done, and some things which mustn’t be done (which you must avoid at all cost). Below are a few of the dos and don’ts for a better 2016
1. Don’t go broke trying to look rich:
many people are guilty of this one
. You trynna look so rich, and in the
process, you get yourself broke. Some people buy all sorts of expensive
shoes, clothing, bags, etc., just to look rich, and they know the size
of their pockets. In the process of trying to look rich, some people go
broke. This habit has to stop in 2016 if you wanna have it better in
2. Never try to impress anyone: this one peculiar to
guys. Many guys are so guilty of this. They do all sorts of crazy things
just to try and impress their dream girl, or any other girl they are
chasing or even to impress their fellow guys and gain respect from the
guys. Don’t do this. Its trying to be who you are not, and its very bad
if you want a better 2016.
3. Don’t live your life solely on what people say about you:
people are going to talk. Definitely, its what their mouths are there
for. But I’m not saying you shouldn’t listen to people’s opinion, but
don’t base you life solely on their decision. Listen to what they think
and do what you know will favor you and better your life, irrespective
of what people are saying.
4. Develop the habit of saving:
don’t just spend it all… when you receive your monthly or daily
earnings, try and save a little out of it. If you know saving in a bank
won’t favor you, then make a saving box (the one we used to call
kom-kom). I did that in 2015, so don’t feel shy to do it. I used an
empty starch spray container. I dug a small hole underneath the
container where I put the money into the container. That stuff worked
magic. I saved at least N10 every day, depending on my spending for that
day, there are some days I saved up to 50 or 100 bucks. I destroyed the
container with a saw on 24th this year, and you won’t believe how much I
retrieved from the container
5. Learn to be grateful to people who have been of help to you:
there’s a popular saying that “when you thank someone for what was done
yesterday, that person will be willing to do more for you today” this
is so true. Take this scenario, you give two people a gift each and only
one person says ‘thank you’. The next day, who will you be motivated to
give a gift? The one that said thank you or the one that didn’t say
6. Try not to break any heart in 2016: yes boys,
you heard me… stop that player attitude and stop using and dumping
girls. Take responsibility this 2016 and guard the heart of your lover
and be careful not to break the heart of someone entrusted in your hand.
Not only guys, girls break hearts too… so ladies, don’t break any guy’s
heart in 2016 aiit? The bottom line is, whoever you eventually fall in
love with in 2016, try to guard their hearts well and take the love n
7. Don’t gossip:this one is in clear
English, I don’t think it needs an explanation. For your 2016 to be
better DON’T GOSSIP!!!
8. Don’t betray your friends:
yes, don’t betray friends. It’s really a bad thing to do. It not only
makes you loose a friend, but it also makes you gain an enemy. So be
careful not to betray the trust of any of your friends in 2016.
9. Care for those who show care for you:
many of us really defaulted in this area in 2015. When someone shows
you care, s/he expects you to return that care by caring for him/her
too, so in 2016, change. Show care to those who care for you.
10. Develop a lifestyle:
when I say lifestyle, I don’t mean you should develop just any
lifestyle, but preferably a healthy lifestyle. What do I mean by
developing a lifestyle? Lifestyle is a style of living that reflects the
attitude and value of a person. Develop a stable life routine that
would show your value. That once someone mentions something, people can
easily say “no, I know him, he can’t do such a thing… that’s not his
lifestyle”. Talking about a healthy lifestyle, you’ve gotta saty in the
RED lifestyle to be in good health in 2016… RED is
R - Rest: have enough rest, your brain and body needs it. Don’t overwork yourself in 2016.
– Exercise: exercise daily. Not just to have all ’em muscles and biceps
but to stay physically fit too. You can follow my own personal exercise
routine every morning, if you like, or develop your. I do 10 push ups,
10 sit ups, and 5 pull ups every morning before I take my bath.
Diet: eat well, don’t just eat anyhow. It’s not about eating enough food
but about eating right, eating a balanced diet. I will write a post
here on NL about living a healthy lifestyle in 2016.
