Setting New Year Goals - Community Service
uring the New Year, people usually set New Year’s Resolutions; goals for themselves; lose some weight, be nicer, work harder, etc. However the problem for some is actually committing themselves to their target goal. A lot of the time this is because the person does not know how to go about completing the goal. A helpful tip for those out there who aren’t able to complete their goal is to get a friend to try to complete the goal with you, so that you both have someone encouraging present. Also you could set smaller goals that lead up to the one much larger goal.
This year, my goal is to be more helpful in my community, where I continue to grow as a student and as a person. By helping out in my community, I will be giving back to the place that has brought me up and made me who I am today. As a teenager, I have experienced much of what my community has had to offer to me since I moved here; sports teams, school programs, and even youth service programs. These programs provide me with entertainment, enrichment, and also excitement; therefore I feel it is extremely important to give back to the community that gives me these wonderful opportunities.
To help out in your community there are a lot of things you can do, such as simple community services; from helping to clean up trash on the streets to tutoring students in lower grades. Also you could volunteer at a hospital, baby sit, or help out in facilities for the elderly. Now to find out which community service is right for you, you have to see where your interests lie. For example, if you like soccer, you could participate in helping coach a team, or you could be a referee for the younger ages. This ensures that you also have a good time while positively contributing to your community. Sometimes in order to make a difference in your own life, it is important to make a difference in the lives of others.
So if you’re up to it, why not create a resolution this New Year to set a goal and achieve it? Even if your goal is aimed at self improvement, it can still be beneficial to other people in your community. Whether your goal is personal or community oriented, the New Year gives us a chance to achieve new things and reach new heights.
Here’s wishing everyone a happy and safe New Years!
