We all set goals at the beginning of the year, and, at that point in time, we were quite certain about the possibilities of achieving them. But somewhere in between the beginning of January and the end of it, resolutions were forgotten and, according to Chinua Achebe, things fell apart. If this applies to you, here are 4 goals you (and a lot of other people) are probably struggling with.
Every year, people make a goal to save money. They even draw up budgets to show how serious they are, but by the time things like rent, utility bills, shopping expenses, and mechanic wahala hit, the goal disappears. At the end of the year, the story becomes “I’m just grateful to have made it to the end of the year alive.”
Every Nigerian living in Nigeria understands the importance of taking care of your mental health. That’s why it’s a goal that appears at the top of our lists every year. But, between work, family and surviving the country in general, we tend to put our mental health on the back burner, and just say “it is well.”
Raise your hand if you’re one of the people who always adds “getting fit” as a new year resolution then quits the gym in the third week of January. Don’t worry. We’re many on this table. 90% of the time, the reason why people quit is a lack of discipline and consistency or pure laziness.
Learning new skills:
The two reasons why people can’t seem to achieve this goal are time and money. People can’t find time away from work to learn new skills because everybody wants to use their weekends to either rest or turn up. Even if they do find the time, a lot of courses run into hundreds of dollars, and in this economy, who has that kind of money lying around?
This year, Flux is trying to change the narrative by helping 10,000 Nigerians achieve their goals. They’ve partnered with some amazing brands to help individuals achieve their goals in the areas of fitness, mental health and learning new skills.
