Why Most New Year’s Resolutions Fail (and how to make yours succeed)

You’re focusing on the wrong thing.

It’s January, which means everyone is setting goals (and blogging about them ;). People are hitting the gym, eating healthier, drinking less, and just being “better.”

The problem is, most New Year’s Resolutions will fail.

Statistics say that by January 8, some 25% of resolutions have fallen by the wayside. By the end of February, only 16% of people are still sticking to their resolution, and by the end of the year, only 8% have survived.

That’s like asking 100 people to cross a busy street…and 92 of them get hit by a truck and die.
