Studies show that nearly half of Americans set New Year's resolutions each year, but only 8% successfully keep them. Here’s how to make yours stick and be part of this elite crew!


1. Less is More

Rather than overwhelming yourself with a laundry list of resolutions, zoom in on a few key goals! Keeping it simple makes it more enjoyable and gives you the focus needed for better dedication and attention.

2. Set Clear Goals

Be super clear! Make your resolutions specific, measurable, and achievable. Clear goals give direction and keep you motivated. Unclear goals can confuse and demotivate, so aim for crystal-clear targets.

3. Make It Visible

Keep your resolutions front and center. Write them down and place them where you'll see them daily—like on your mirror, fridge, wallet, or computer screen. This will make it easier to keep your eyes on the prize! 

4. Break It Down

Break down big goals into smaller, doable steps! Start with your main goal at the top of a "goal ladder," then list smaller goals underneath that are essential to reaching your main goal. Remember to celebrate every little step forward, no matter how small.

5. Buddy Up

Don't go it alone! Accomplishing goals solo can feel overwhelming, but having someone to hold you accountable keeps you on track and motivated. Share your goals and progress with a friend to make the journey more enjoyable and rewarding!

6. Consistency is Key

Make your resolutions a part of your daily routine. Dedicate a specific time each day to work on them, even if it's just for a few minutes. Small steps add up and take you closer to where you want to be. Keep going, and you’ll be amazed by the results!

7. Create Habit-Forming Cues

Looking to boost your chances of success? The brain loves taking the easy route to save energy. Make things simpler by connecting your resolution to a habit you already have! For example, if you aim to read more, place a book beside your bed to trigger bedtime reading.

8. Stay Flexible and Strong

Be open to adjusting your approach when needed and learn to bounce back when things get tough. Adaptation is part of the journey! Take those tough moments as gifts you can use to become even more resilient and determined. 

9. Track Progress

Keep a journal or use an app to track your progress! Without tracking, it's challenging to gauge the results of your efforts. Regularly reviewing how far you've come is a powerful motivator and promotes a growth mindset that reinforces desired behaviors and reduces distractions. 

10. Empower Your “Why” 

Weak whys lead to weak hows and poor results. Common weak whys include “to make more money” and “to lose weight.” Strengthen your reasons by digging deeper and connecting to something more specific and powerful to you—turn into a strong, compelling desire!
