New Year Resolution Worksheet 2017

When the clock strikes twelve and confetti begins to fall and the whisper “New Year’s Resolutions” can be heard. The new year of 2024 is a time to look forward to the promise of a fresh start as well as self improvement. The flurry around gym memberships or detox programs can be a good time to reflect on the resolutions we make. Are they nothing more than empty promises, which are likely to fade away or can they serve as a blueprint for our personal growth and improvement?

Unpacking Resolution Paradox: What is the reason for their inability to perform?

Statistics paint a grim picture. According to research, 80% of all resolutions fail within the first three months. Why? Often, we fall prey to the lure of quick fixes and grand pronouncements. We rebuke negative habits and set ambitious goals that lack specificity or a plan to achieve them. Inevitable failures breed disappointment and despair. We return to our previous strategies, frustrated and disappointed.

Reframing Your Resolution: Moving away from Gimmicks and Growth Mindset

Resolutions should not be viewed as a set of goals that are rigidly outlined. Instead, they can be seen as a framework of intentional development. The key is shifting our focus from the final outcome to the process itself. Make sure to focus on healthy habits such as regular exercise and mindful eating instead of trying to achieve an aesthetically pleasing body. Instead of vowing that you will learn a language within a day, practice consistently and celebrate every small victory along the journey.
