Achieving Your New Year's Resolutions

An expert shares some ways in fulfilling one's New Year's resolution in a short span of time.
  • 1I tracked the lives of 5,000 people as they attempted to achieve their New Year's resolutions.
  • 2Now most of them failed, but ten percent did obtain their aims and ambitions.
  • 3But what were they doing was so different.
  • 4But it all came down to five simple principles.
  • 5First of all, they broke their goal into a series of smaller steps.
  • 6Second, they told their friends and family what they were trying to achieve.
  • 7So that elicited more of a fear of failure but also a sense of support.
  • 8Third, they frequently reminded themselves about the benefits of obtaining their goal.
  • 9Fourth, they gave themselves a small reward each time they obtain one of their small steps.
  • 10And finally, they mapped out their progress.
  • 11Either on the spreadsheet, on the fridge door or in a journal.
  • 12So, they knew exactly where they were.
  • 13And those are the five key principles to actually achieving your New Year's resolutions.
