 What is the reason resolutions usually fail?

Statistics paint an ominous picture. The statistics are bleak. Why? We are often seduced by easy fixes and big declarations. We take on the fight against bad behaviors, setting goals that are too lofty and with no clear strategy of how to implement them. Discontent and frustration are the result of failureThis leads us to return to our old habits feeling defeated and demoralized.
