Although it is March and it seems that this is not the right time to talk about the New Year’s resolutions, nothing could be further from the truth. After three months, you can evaluate what is left of your enthusiastic declarations. It is a good time to answer the question whether the ambitious plans were not pushed onto the back burner, whether laziness prevailed over the power of will? It is a good time, because you still have a whole nine months to complete what you set out to do. Let's look at some personal development tips below.
As many as 92% of New Year's resolutions will not be implemented
When at the end of December we all declare that we will change our lives, we are filled with great enthusiasm and positive energy. There is no end to the big resolutions, we imagine ourselves as much better and brand new people. The need for change is overwhelming, a motivation is enormous and we have an endless belief in our success.
Unfortunately, after time, our enthusiasm starts to weaken, the goal does not seem so exciting anymore and in the end we feel bored, discouraged and ultimately give up. The researchers examined how quickly people give up the implementation of their New Year's plans. The statistics are, needless to say, very depressing.
It turns out that 25% of people give up their decisions after the first week! 29% after two weeks, 36% of people give up after a month. Another 50% of those who somehow held on, will give up within half a year. A total of 92% of New Year's resolutions will not be realised.
Without the work on yourself you will not achieve results
Though, probably, very few people are familiar with these statistics, the vast number of people do not really believe in the power of New Year's resolutions, even though they make them every year. Why? Because for some years in a row they set out goals, less or more ambitious. For the first few days of the New Year, acting as if with the momentum, they were managing to stick with their resolutions but after a while they gave up. So - having bad experiences behind them, they built a belief that the implementation of the New Year’s resolutions is impossible.
The problem is that very few people understand that for something in their life to change, they need inner strength, concentration on the goal, work full of determination and relentless belief in success. Unfortunately, many believe that happiness will come to them just because they decided this. It is a pity but life does not work like that. Surely it would be more convenient. But - life is like work - you have to work hard to see the results. No one disputes working hard at work to get great results, however, not many want to fight for a better life.
Hence - if you are not working hard on making your dreams or your New Year's resolutions come true, you can be sure that none of them will come to fruition.
