Do you like this story?
Everyone's making his and her own New Year's Resolutions. That's why many fitness gyms suddenly become jam-packed after every New Year. Many people also sense a (false?!) hope for a new beginning to their endeavors and to their lives as well.
Psychics are also in-demand as their "prophecies" for the coming year have been well sought-upon by people (not me though).
And on newspapers, we read about different people being interviewed regarding their own New Year's Resolutions. For this reason, I made a quick research of the New Year's Resolutions of famous people. Take note, not all New Year's Resolutions are REAL!
GEORGE W. BUSH
"I resolve that I will install a television set in the Oval Office and turn it on and watch in the event of a natural disaster."
"Stop biting my nails. Just to take care of me more."
"Last year I was in the tabloid headlines only 362 days... THIS year I resolve to make it the complete 365 days!"
By the way, only 46% of those who made New Year's Resolutions were able to keep their promises ON THE SIXTH MONTH says John C. Norcross, a professor of psychology at the University of Scranton who has conducted at least three studies on resolutions in recent years.
Happy New Year again!
