#NewYearChallenge I am on the last day on not-buying-anything-I-don't-need-year and thought I'd share in case it inspires you to do the same

Two weeks before Christmas last year I watched a #DavidAttenborough show, #BluePlanet and it inspired me to take massive action

I watched the plastic floating in the oceans and wondered, with shame, how much was mine :/

I decided to do a year of not consuming.

My only rule was "not to buy anything I didn't need". This meant I could buy food, drink and basic toiletries etc.
(I included mascara and moisturiser on my basic lists, I'm not a monster).

I didn't buy; clothes, shoes, presents, other makeup, hair products, jewellery, bags, decorations, anything disposable, plants, flowers, house items etc.

One of the hardest things you'll come up against is mindset. It is what will cause you the most sorrow. Let me explain using a Nigerian example.
You believe one should have electricity for 24 hours a day. You have the financial means, so you can now attain this using a combination of PHCN, Generator, Inverter and Solar Panels.

There are 2 popular attitudes when it comes to #newyearresolutions:

1- "Resolutions are a waste of time"

2- "I always make resolutions (but never keep them)"

In this thread I'll explain why resolutions commonly fail & share strategies that have served me well in the past...
I can't emphasize this enough: failure is an integral part of success.

Failures are stepping stones towards your goals, provided:

1- You don't give up

2- You learn and adjust your approach
"Resolutions are a waste of time" is an attitude (usually) held by those who have given up.

"I always make resolutions (but never keep them)" is an attitude (usually) held by those who don't learn from failure and repeat the same mistakes every year.
