This is a right time to celebrate. It’s a holiday of favorite tradition—countdowns, fireworks, Champagne. . . and resolutions. For many. the advent of a new year means big promises to take big steps to make big changes.
Many of us seize the chance to set a new goal as an attempt to get rid of a bad habit or begin a healthier lifestyle, such as quitting smoking or losing weight. Although the original goal and thought behind setting their resolution is good, typically by mid-January about 50% of all those “New Year Resolutioners” will have already given up.
The stability of the goals was just as important to me as actually meeting them. Once I met my goals for the year, I even found myself wishing I had another one because the resolutions kept me on my toes and kept my focus looking forward in a positive way.
