The thought of resolutions can be tough when we are also told ‘you can’t teach an old dog new tricks’ or ‘leopards can’t change their spots’. So, it may seem the older you get the more you cringe when you hear ‘New Year Resolutions’.
In fact our resolutions are typically predictable and are often the same as the year before. This cycle is due to the fact that most people fail to achieve their resolutions of 12 months earlier.
Part of the challenge lies in the fact that we chose resolutions because it’s just that time of year – there is no other motivating factor. We tend to grab a mismatch of resolutions, which often make no sense when you put them all together.
So how about this year why don’t you take the time to reflect and ask yourself these 8 honest questions to avoid failing again and making sure you are aligning what’s most important to you to your resolutions.
