New Year Resolution Template 2018

As the clock strikes midnight and confetti falls, a familiar voice echoes throughout the air, “New Year’s Resolutions.” When the calendar turns to 2024, the allure of fresh beginnings and self-improvement begins to take hold. In the midst of the gym memberships and detox programs it is worth pausing to consider the following question: Are these resolutions only fleeting promises that will end up in the graveyard with forgotten goals or can be transformed into valuable plans for personal growth.

 What is the reason resolutions usually fail?

Statistics paint a grim picture. Studies show that a staggering 80% of resolutions fail within the first few months. Why? We can be seduced into making bold statements and fast solutions. We declare fight against bad habits. But we set unattainable and vague goals without any plan or specificity. Failure can lead to frustration, which can lead to depression and then us back to our old ways.

Reframing Resolution from Gimmicks to Growth Mindset

Instead of looking at resolutions in a strict way, let’s see them more as a tool for intentional development. The trick is to shift our focus from the end result itself towards the process. Focus on healthy lifestyles like daily exercise and mindful eating instead of striving to attain an aesthetically pleasing body. Instead of trying to master a new tongue overnight, commit yourself to regular practice and celebrate every little victory you make on the way.

  • Be flexible and experiment: The world throws curveballs. Be ready to adjust your resolutions if necessary. Do not hesitate to alter or eliminate a resolution if you find it too complex or no longer fits your values.
