A Broken New Year Resolution Is A Broken Promise
That is correct, most of us have no intention to even try to keep our resolutions (less than 10% are successful). After all we have nothing to lose, it is just a promise we made to ourselves no one is going to be hurt by lack of follow thru. I argue that you are "someone" and that psychologically you are hurting yourself every time you fail to keep a promise to anyone including yourself.The key is to set realistic resolutions, for example; I will stop smoking for one month or eating sugary sweets for a month or I will save $50 extra this month. These are attainable as compared to; I will stop smoking, I will lose 20# or I will get out of debt. By setting attainable goals you are much more likely to keep your resolutions and boost your morale by doing so.
