New years resolution. Why it doesn't work?

You started once again a New Yea with New Year's resolutions and now we're fourth of February and you feel exhausted, demotivated and you want to abandon everything or you already gave up.
 Why this scenario repeats every year and what to do to stop it? Let's try to find out what are the reasons of this situation and what should we do to get out from this vicious circle?

Choose the Right Resolution

If you want to success you need to set a goal which will be important, doable, and meaningful for you. Don’t pick the resolution just because your friend did it, it’s your life and you should find your own goals. And what is extremely important, you should imagine the best possible results these goals will bring.

You don't have a realistic Plan

For most of the people , it's not a problem to make a resolution , it is keeping it. Beginning of the New Year or School Year it's a good moment to make resolutions and start to live better, healthier, and happier life. So when you're brainstorming your goals for the coming year try to create a plan how to make your resolutions come true.

You're resolution is too complex or too vague

You want to improve you’re life in 2018. But what exactly you want to do? Loose weight? Find a true love? Find a new job? Renovate your house? Try to formulate your resolution as simple and clear as possible.

No deadline

We should set ourselves goals to be reached within a specific period of time. That will help as to stay focused, motivated and in the end, achieve our goal. It’s much more better to say: I want to change my job before Easter then I want to change my job.

So now you can start again and make your February Resolution.

Good luck!!!
