You are never too old to set a new goal or to dream a new dream.
Every year, millions of Americans step into January 1st by ringing in the new year with a New Year’s Resolution. Not so surprisingly, only one in five will actually follow through. A study done among 26,151 participants revealed only 6% of the subjects fully stuck to their resolution, while 14% said they had “mostly” stuck with their resolution. Even more grimly, Forbes did a similar study and learned that less than 25% of people actually stay committed to their resolutions after just 30 days. Based on our experience with our clients, what we see as being the hardest part of a New Year’s Resolution isn’t what to commit to, but rather the commitment to the intention. In this blog, we are going to talk about setting a resolution for the New Year that sticks, and tools to support you in holding your attention on your intention throughout 2020.
When it comes to choosing a New Year’s Resolution, most people have one of the following in their top 3:
- Lose Weight and Get Fit
- Learn Something New
- Eat Healthier and Diet
- Be Less Stressed
Aside from being some of the top choices for resolutions set, they also are ranked by Time magazine as some of the most commonly broken. You may be finding yourself wondering … Why is this? It’s simple. Resolutions tend to be broad and vague. It’s important when setting yourself up for the new year to get clear on what you want to accomplish, why it’s important, and how you’ll make it happen. Holding consistent attention on these questions will bring your goal for the new year within reach by helping you envision an obtainable possibility for your future. This will require your time and commitment, but on a manageable scale. Talk about it with your friends. Establish daily practices. Celebrate milestones. Keep pushing yourself. It takes a little over 2 months to form a new habit, and the hardest part will be continually practicing bringing your attention back to the intention you’ve set going into the new year. This is where we can help.
