Children’s Corner with PANIC CHILUFYA
YESTERDAY heralded the arrival of 2019 and for most people, it is that time to make those New Year’s resolutions and young people are no exception.
For some people, resolutions end up falling by the wayside immediately after the festive period long before the year ends. However, the motivation for coming up with resolutions is usually for a good reason as it is about setting goals and personal improvement or advancement in the New Year.
It has been said that usually only eight percent of people who make resolutions actually achieve them by the end of a year.
This is because most people make too many resolutions which become difficult to fulfil.
The fewer the resolutions, the easier it is to carry them throughout the year.
As a new year begins, it is imperative to encourage children and young people to come up with resolutions or set goals about what they hope to achieve in 2019.
When young people set resolutions of what they hope to achieve, this mentally spurs them to work harder in whatever they do and has a positive impact because they will be working to achieve the goals they would have set for themselves.
Without motivation, it is easy for young people to be led astray as they have no plans. They will easily go where the wind blows, which can be disastrous for a number of reasons.
That is how some young people get entangled in different situations associated with bad and disruptive behaviour as they have no motivation to better their lives for the benefit of their families and the greater communities they come from.
Come 2019, young people should aspire to achieve much more than they did last year in all spheres, especially that they are the future.
They should be encouraged to come up with resolutions that will help them make informed and positive decisions.
Young people should avoid being led astray through poor judgment and making decisions that are detrimental to their lives.
As the saying goes, knowledge is power and young people should begin to use it to their advantage.
Happy 2019 to all. Remember, children are our future. Until next week, take care.
