As the clock ticks toward 2014, many are saying goodbye to 2013 and hello to New Years Resolutions.
"I can't believe the new year is here already, 2013 went so fast," said North Platte Resident Bonnie Howell.
Some people in North Platte including Bonnie Howell are setting goals for the new year, and the new them.
"I'm looking forward to continue working, I want to keep god in my life and my family and get my bills paid," said Howell.
Others say they are trying to lose weight.
"I'm actually in competition with my co-worker on a weight loss program right now," said Miranda Smith of North Platte.
Some are getting organized, spending less money so they can save more, and quit those bad habits.
"I want to quit smoking cigarettes I want to focus more on school get my grades up for college and start saving up money from my job so I can get a car," said Desiray Striker.
For Striker 2014 means she is changing her life, and mending relationships.
"New Years is a new beginning so if figure it's a clean slate I can go in with a whole new perspective," said Striker.
Striker admits it's hard to keep resolutions and she's counting on friends to help.
Newly released statistics on New Years resolutions seem to agree.
Americans start out strong and then those resolutions fade.
In fact only 45-percent of people actually make a resolution, and 64-percent of those people actually keep their resolution past one month.
