Don’t Make New Year’s Resolutions. Do This Instead.
According to research by the University of Scranton, only 8% of people keep their New Year’s resolutions.
There are many reasons for this high rate of failure. Resolutions are usually well meant intentions. For example, I want to lose weight and work out more; I want to manage my anger better; I want to get out of debt, and so on. All perfectly good ideas, if they are kept.
New Year’s resolutions are often fantasies and wishful thinking. They lack one important ingredient, that is commitment. Commitment is a much stronger motivator. It is a promise, an obligation and a pledge.
Think of a time when you made a commitment that was successful such as, you made a promise to help out a friend in need–and did it; you made a romantic commitment to your partner; you made a pledge to your church or charity organization.
Notice the difference in your attitude toward keeping your word or plan. It is much more intense and purposeful than a resolution.
When wanting to change a behavior, attitude, addiction or other undesirable trait or habit–or create a new and better one, consider making that commitment one day, week or month at a time, instead of for the whole year. Keeping to a decision for change is much more manageable in smaller increments.
decide on what you wish to accomplish in the coming year; make a plan,
then make a commitment to follow through–and then,
just do it.
