Unpacking Resolution Paradox What’s the cause of their inability to perform?

Instead they should be seen as a way to create a framework for intentional growth. It is crucial to shift our attention from the outcome itself towards the process. Concentrate on developing healthy habits like mindful eating and daily exercise, instead of trying to achieve a beautiful physique. Instead of declaring that you’ll learn a language in a day, practice consistently and be grateful for every little victory on the way.
