Why “New Year’s Resolutions” Are Destined To Fail.

20 Mar

In just a moment, I’m going to tell you why “New Year’s Resolutions” are destined to fail. But first, I have to tell you this…

I Googled “New Year’s Resolution Statistics”, and what came up #1 was very interesting… It was a set of statistics from The University of Scranton Journal of Clinical Psychology. Here is what they listed were the top 10 New Year’s Resolutions for last year… 2013:

  1. Lose weight
  2. Getting organized
  3. Spend less, save more
  4. Enjoy life to the fullest
  5. Staying fit and healthy
  6. Learn something exciting
  7. Quit smoking
  8. Help others in their dreams
  9. Fall in love
  10. Spend more time with family

All great things. But here is the shocker: The percentage of people who are successful in achieving their resolution is 8%!

What’s that? You think 8% is low? That’s odd; I thought it would be much lower. Here is why…

Success in anything comes from a proper mind-set. In other words, it comes from the way you think. You must think accurately to achieve goals and get positive results.

Waiting until New Year’s Day to start a resolution is completely inaccurate thinking. An accurate thinker would start right now, this very second. Why would you wait a month or a week or even a day to start eating right? Exercising? Stop smoking? Helping others? Spending time with your family and loved ones? Getting organized? Etc. Etc. Etc.

Waiting is procrastination, and procrastination is pure evil when it comes to success and goal achievement.

So, if you REALLY want something, make it part of your life immediately. Take action to get it RIGHT NOW. Don’t stop until you have it. Don’t dream about that someday because for most, that mythical someday keeps getting put off and never arrives.
