A study that was published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology found that just 46% of those who set goals for the new year were able to achieve them. That implies that more than 50% of those who make resolutions for the new year will not succeed!
The best way to keep your resolution is to make a plan and stick to it! Set a goal that motivates you and one that will allow you to witness the change. When a person sees actual positive change in their life, it is easier to keep going with their plan and resolution.
Mentally prepare for the resolution. Get yourself psyched up to crush your new goal or goals!
Don’t go crazy on setting too many resolutions! Choose one or two things that you want to make happen, focus on them and get it done! If you choose too many resolutions you will get overwhelmed and more than likely give up on all of your resolutions.
