Emirates 24|7 asked its readers to send in their New Year Resolutions towards the end of 2015. Readers wrote in in hundreds.
Most of the responses centered on trying to live a healthier life, pray more and be nicer to people.
Emirates 24|7 thanks all who participated – and those who intended to…
The following are the winners:
Name: Catherine Lansang David, 32-year-old from Phillipines living in Hamriyah, Dubai
NY Resolution: As the New Year commences, let the family join hands to pray for one another and also promise to be by each other’s side in sickness and in health.
Comment: I am very glad and blessed to receive this call. I am speechless with joy. I would love to gift this iPad mini to my son. Thank you Emirates 24|7... I read your news at work as well as from home.
Name: Ram Mudiraj, 30-year-old Indian living in Abu Dhabi.
NY Resolution: Limit yourself to one goal. Even if you have many goals you would like to tackle this year, if you can narrow it down to only one to focus on first, your chances of success will be much higher. Multitasking is difficult on the best of days, and trying to keep up with too many resolutions is bound to result in a ball dropped somewhere. Instead, choose to focus with laser-like precision on one thing - and be sure to reward yourself amply when you succeed!
Comment: I am very happy to get this call. I was sleeping right now due to my day off and this call is like a dream come true. I have won something for the first time in UAE and I am very thankful to E24|7. I came to UAE in 2011 and since then I am an ardent reader of Emirates 24|7, I follow the news every day.”
Name: Fahad Yousaf, 29-year-old Pakistani living in Ras Al Khaimah
NY Resolution: By the grace of Allah, in 2016 I will buy my own new house in my home country for my sister, brother and my marriage. InshAllah.
Comment: I am very excited to get an iPad Mini from Emirates 24|7... I read your news daily and find it very informative... Thank you so much.
We hope to bring more such competitions this year.
