A New Year Resolution

When the clock strikes midnight the confetti falls and a familiar sound can be heard throughout the night: “New Year’s resolutions.” The lure of self-improvement and fresh beginnings becomes apparent as the calendar moves to 2024. It is important to take a moment and consider, in the endless stream of detox programs, gym memberships programs and other self-improvement programs to determine if these are fleeting promises that will be forgotten in the graveyard.

 What is the reason resolutions frequently fail?

The numbers paint a dark picture. A staggering 80percent (according to some studies) of resolutions for the new year fail in the first week. Why? We often fall victim to the lure of easy fixes or grandiose pronouncements. We fight against our unhealthy habits by setting unattainable goals without any specifics or an implementation plan. Failure will eventually lead to disappointment and discouragement, bringing us back to our former ways, feeling defeated and discouraged.

Reframing Resolution From Gimmicks To Growth Mindset

We should not think of resolutions as a list of stifling goals. Instead, we should see them as a way to create a framework for intentional growth. The focus should shift away from the final product towards the process itself. Make sure to develop healthy habits like conscious eating and regular fitness, and not seeking out a body that looks attractive. Instead of pledging to master a new language in one day, you should practice it consistently and celebrate each small win throughout the process.

  • Embrace flexibility and iteration: Sometimes life throws curveballs. Be open to changing your resolutions when necessary. Don’t hesitate to let go of an objective that is unattainable or does not resonate with your values.
