People typically succeed because their ‘why’ is bigger than their ‘but’. I’m sharing what to do if you want to keep your New Year’s resolutions in this Wealth Matters article by Paul Sullivan at NYTimes.com.
In his article, Want to Keep New Year’s Resolutions? Consider the Consequences of Failing, Mr. Sullivan acknowledges that the reason so many resolutions fail is because getting past the “but” is not easy. True success often requires a combination of:
- More help
- Lower expectations
- Bigger consequences
When stress happens, it’s important to take care of that, but it can also cause you to fail to keep whatever resolutions you may have made. (This is why people who have quit smoking for 10 years go back to it when something stressful comes up.)
Instead of giving up, analyze your failures and try again. Look at it as data and learn from it!
In the case of smokers, research has shown it takes someone seven times to quit smoking! But each time you go back to it, try asking yourself, “What was the ingredient that contributed to me going off the wagon? Was it that I had a tough day, I had a drink, I was exhausted?”
When you consider the consequences of failing to keep your New Year’s resolutions, remember that to make yourself better takes discipline. If you need help in accomplishing your goals in the coming year, consider aligning yourself with someone you can trust to hold you accountable.
