According to surveys, only 8 percent of Americans successfully achieve their New Year's resolutions. 80 percent of those who make New Year resolutions have failed by Jan. 20. And yet, about half of us continue to make resolutions with the best of intentions every year, believing that the right resolutions will make us more productive, healthy and successful. The vast majority of resolutions made have to do with health or business and financial goals.
For the past few years, I have boycotted making a list of resolutions that are easily forgotten as old habits and life challenges take over. Instead, I focus on the purpose for achieving my goals, whether they be health or business related goals. Sometimes people call this purpose their WHY, others call it their VISION.
Resolutions are generally goals that are short-lived and ultimately unsatisfying. Either you make the goal easily, or more frequently, you get frustrated because you DIDN'T hit the goal, so you quit, and your health or your finances swing even more out of control... AGAIN.
I am not saying not to have goals for self-improvement. It just takes much more than merely writing them down on Jan 1 to make a true difference in your life. When you find your PURPOSE and choose to live everyday with that PASSION, you stay committed to your journey without focusing on the destination, and you never give up on yourself!
