Why Are New Year Resolutions So Hard To Keep?
There are two types of people preparing to celebrate the new year. The first camp believes in setting resolutions and goals for the next twelve months. The rest cannot be bothered and prefer to continue living their lives without changing their behavior.
If you belong to the first group of people, it is important to understand why we celebrate the new year by setting ourselves challenges and goals. And why most people fail in keeping these resolutions.
Failed Resolutions Affect Us
People stop making new year resolutions because they may have failed in the past. The inability to accomplish goals affects us deeply. Therefore, people tend to avoid the exercise completely rather than face their own failure a year later.
If you find yourself in this category, here is some food for thought:
Not trying is the biggest failure.
If you never get started, you failed even before you tried. Failing after making a serious attempt is not a loss. With the right perspective, it can be an invaluable resource for future projects.
Break your big goal down into many smaller steps. Choose to intentionally fail in small incremental steps. As the steps get bigger, you will find yourself getting stronger and failing less.
Nobody Makes Easy Resoutions
We never consider adding easy goals to our new year resolution list. Most people want big changes and aim for goals that are big. Now, there’s nothing wrong with dreaming big. Your list of resolutions should be daunting and require courage. But here’s the important distinction…
Your resolutions should be absolutely important to you.
Have you put some thought into your resolutions? Are they in snyc with your values and the vision you have for your life?
You have limited resources so use them wisely. Don’t go chasing after goals that add no real value to your life.
