It’s that time of year again with the sparkle of a new year comes the excitement of dreams to be fulfilled and the unknown yet to be discovered. We have come to one of life’s great punctuation marks full of bright potential and it’s “out with the old, in with the new” – a time to re-invent yourself. New Year is also that time when millions of people make resolutions, many of which will fizzle out as quickly as the fireworks.
Are you wondering how you are still in a job you don’t like, life is out of balance and your clothes don’t fit? What happened to last year’s resolutions?
Statistics have shown us year after year that only a very small percentage of declarations survive beyond the January 1st hangover let alone get celebrated by the end of 12 months.
About 50% of Australians and 45% of Americans make NY resolutions and according to British psychologist Richard Wiseman 88% of all resolutions end in failure. That means there are literally millions of resolutions made and broken every year.
