Over fifty percent of people give up on their New Year’s resolutions in the first month! That doesn’t mean New Year’s resolutions are bad – just that the goal might need to be redefined. Perhaps it was too general, or overly optimistic. Goals that are clear and specific, manageable in terms of time and energy, and are deeply meaningful are more likely to be achieved. At the same time, new behaviors are hard to maintain until they’ve been hardwired in the brain. Don’t let a sense of failure or procrastination get in the way of achieving your dreams. Never, ever give up!
