Quote of the Day:
"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new"
New Year's resolutions motivate people to be better than they were the year before, but what good is a resolution if it dissipates after a few months? According to U.S. Insider, 80% of resolutions fail by the second week of February. However, these statistics are changeable if we apply the same rules that categorize successful goals. First of all, make your resolution as specific as possible and write it down. By saying you want to lose x amount of weight and save x amount of money, your resolution becomes tangible. Next, be realistic. Yes, fantasizing can be a great way to escape the realities of the world, but it won't get you very far in terms of personal growth. Having a realistic and measurable resolution significantly raises your chances of accomplishment. Lastly, set time limits. Giving yourself a deadline creates urgency. Plus, you'll know when it's time to celebrate!
