Why Most New Year’s Resolutions Fail

It is THAT time of the year again where everyone is creating their “New Year’s Resolutions”.

Things like …

  • I will quit smoking
  • I will lose weight
  • I will exercise
  • Blah, blah, blah

I am sorry to be the bearer of BAD news here, but, multiple long-term studies have shown that less than 8% of people setting these resolutions actually stick to them past January!

Why is it then that we can start off the new year with such great intentions to change things, and just end up falling flat on our face?
