In 2017, many people will make resolutions again and then immediately break them. Why? Because they won’t do anything different. They don’t have commitment plans. They’re just wishing.

Enthusiasm is common. Commitment is rare.

Studies show that resolutions begin to drop off after a week and only about 40% of those who made resolutions actually stick to their goals. University of Scranton study found out that only 8% of Americans actually follow through and achieve their goals.

Experts say the reason for these failures is that many of us lack the proper structure to support the behavioural changes our new goals require.

Knowing what to do is not an issue, COMMITTING to it is the problem!
