Why New Years Resolutions Don't Stick

Jan 06, 2020
 

🎉Happy New Year!🎉

 

Welcome to 2020 - what I am calling The Year of Clarity. This is the year that together, we will get clear on what your core values are, what you are passionate about and what really lights you up. We will then align these critical elements with your business goals and help you make decisions to bring you results with fulfilment and purpose. Sound good?

 

Let's start with your New Year's resolutions. Here's the bad news - they usually don't work. What? On average, 64% of resolutions are abandoned by February. Why is that? Why do so many of us make resolutions that we can't keep?

 

In this week's vlog, I discuss the top 7 reasons why resolutions don't stick. But don't worry, it's not all bad news! I also give you 7 solutions to put in place that will enable you to turn the negatives around and make your resolutions last all year!

 

Here are some examples:

Problem 1: Most resolutions are based on what you "should" do, or what you think is expected by your peers or society like "I should eat vegan" or "I shouldn't drink more than one glass of wine." But are these resolutions aligned with what you actually want? If not, you are not likely to carry them out.

Solution: You need to get really honest with yourself about what you actually want to change about yourself. If it is something truly meaningful to you then you will be able to find the motivation to see it through. (Watch this space for vlogs, freebies and cheat sheets to help you identify your core values and what you are passionate about...)

Problem 2: Most resolutions are too broad and general , like "I will exercise more"  or "I will eat healthy." These resolutions are so vague that they become too difficult to action and don't happen.

Solution: Get specific about what you want to do. For example, if it's about exercising more, set a goal of doing a run or walk on Tuesdays and Sundays. The more specific the better! Another example is instead of eating healthy, commit to adding two green vegetables to your diet every day. See how this works?

One more?

Problem 3: Many resolutions are a bigger time commitment than you realised and become too overwhelming to action. You just don't have the time to make them happen.

Solution: Incorporate resolutions into your daily life instead of trying to tackle the whole thing at once. For example, "I will get organised" becomes "I commit to spending 5 minutes a day becoming clutter free and organised." Everyone can spare five minutes and you will be amazed with what you can get done in just 5 minutes every day. When you make it a daily habit, the resolution becomes achievable!
