Letâ€™s be honest: most of us fail when it comes to sticking to resolutions â€“ so much so that many people swear never to make resolutions again.
And yet a large percent of us are eternally hopeful when the New Years come around, believing without any doubts that we can improve our lives, that change is possible, that weâ€™re not going to be stuck in the same old groove again this year.
Iâ€™m here to tell you that you can do it. Itâ€™s possible. But on the flip-side, and from my own personal experience – New Yearâ€™s Resolutions usually fail because of a couple of reasons:
- We try to do too many resolutions at once, and that spreads our focus and energies too thin.
- Life gets in the way. Things come up unexpectedly that get in the way of us sticking with a habit.
While I love the hopefulness of New Yearâ€™s Resolutions, unfortunately, the enthusiasm and hope often become lighter within weeks, and our efforts at self improvement come to a whimpering end.
So how can you make sure you your Resolutions?
I believe if you truly want to make it easier and more enjoyable to keep your New Yearâ€™s Resolutions, start by focusing on one habit change at a time, and most importantly – start out really, really easily, so it isnâ€™t intimidating.
