Why New Year Resolutions Fail?

New Year signifies a new chapter in your life. Almost everyone aspires to achieve goals and make resolutions, but only a few experiences the taste of victory. The university of Scranton found that “only 8% of Americans successfully achieve their New Year’s Resolutions while 49% have infrequent success in achieving their resolutions.”

Sounds bad?

People make resolutions and fail to keep them. Let’s have a look at what went wrong with your resolution, why your resolutions fail and how to get them right this time.

  • KEEP REASONABLE GOALS – If you want to work out, then it is advisable to take it slow for the first few days and as the time and days pass, extend the time.

Generally, people give up because after doing it for few days, they don’t see the results and declare that “it is not my forte”. The problem lies in expecting too much within a short span of time. Be patient

“Slow and steady wins the race”.

  • CAPITULATE TO NEGATIVITY FROM OTHERS

A person gets influenced by another person. And the problem is other people will not always work, the way you want it. To attain your resolutions it is better to succeed on a secret mission than fail because of the negativity from others.

Sometimes, if you want to change a man’s mind, you have to change the mind of the man next to him first.”

  • YOU MAKE RESOLUTIONS BUT NOT PREPARE YOURSELF FOR A SLIPPERY PATH

Making resolutions is very easy but sticking to it 24*7 is very difficult. Before you start something new it seems like unattainable, when you start doing it seems to last centuries but the fact is it actually take few months in reality. So, keep on going, my friend.

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.”

  • YOU DON’T TRACK YOUR PROGRESS

Generally, people do this mistake, they don’t track their progress. Keep a record of what you have achieved and what is left. When you see the list, the things you have achieved will keep you to stay motivated and the things that are left will help you to keep on going.

“I can do this”

There are two types of people, one who is a non-believer in such New Year Resolutions and others who stopped keeping it because of the past experiences.

Now take a look at your past resolutions and find out what went wrong, what were your approaches? It could be one of the reasons I listed above. Now, correct your mistakes and try again this year.

Today is the first blank page of a 365-page book,  “WRITE A GOOD ONE”.

HAPPY NEW YEAR
