Making your New Year’s resolutions happen
Even with the best of intentions, after the excitement of a brand-new year fades, many individuals find it difficult to follow through on their goals. Only 46% of those who set New Year’s resolutions succeeded, according to a research that was published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology. Thus, more than half of those who make resolutions for the next year will fall short of them.
Non-resolvers, or those who didn’t set New Year’s resolutions but still had a goal for the year, were also included in the study.
A much worse outcome than those who did make a New Year’s resolution was that just 4% of those who didn’t make any were successful in reaching their objectives.
Naturally, we don’t want to be among those who fall short of their goals and objectives for 2022, so we’ve developed a thorough plan for seeing your resolve through.
