More Interesting New Year’s Resolutions Facts
• 45% of people make resolutions
• 8% achieve success in their resolution
• People under 50 seem to be more successful with resolutions
Most Interesting Fact of All
• People who make resolutions are 10 times more likely to reach a goal than people who do not make resolutions.
This is almost disturbing, given that only 8% of resolutions are successfully achieved.
Personally, I don’t make resolutions or set personal goals. Instead, I focus on creating positive habits that will move me in the direction I want to go. Focusing on daily habits, to me, is a more concrete approach that just works if you know how habits work.
Of course, no attempt at a goal or habit will EVER work in a life long pattern of self-sabotage. Self-sabotage occurs when a part of you simply doesn’t care, or is strangely attached to negative outcomes. If you think this might be a pattern in your life, then you should watch this free and enlightening video. It explains how self-sabotage works in your psyche and how to move beyond the frustration.
Happy New Year!
