For years, I joined millions of people as we all jumped on the same band wagon; searching high and low to find a solution that would help to achieve real change and achieve huge success. Unfortunately most of the time we all came up short or the solutions we did find simply did not work, as many of them over-promise and under-deliver. The sad reality is that only 5% of New Year’s resolutions are kept beyond January, and many of them had been previously attempted and failed at least 3 times. This caught my attention. I looked a little harder for the reason so many resolutions fail within such a short amount of time. I found that the majority of resolutions fail due to:
- Procrastination & lack of discipline
- No clear purpose or vision
- “Winging it” – No strategic game plan
- Being a “Lone Ranger” – Lack of support & accountability
The fact is, the majority of resolutions fail because only a small percentage of people with resolutions ever actually DO something about it. Don’t let this happen to you.
