Here we are, just weeks away from the closure of yet another year. As a new year is just around the corner, it’s important not to just look ahead, but to also look back at the one that is currently coming to a close. Instead of just thinking about how you are going to make 2017 your best year ever, you first need to ask yourself a few questions about the current one.
- Did 2016 work out the way you expected it to?
- How many of your goals did you hit or surpass?
- Of the goals you missed… why didn’t you achieve them?
- Are you going to approach 2017 with a different action plan for success?
- What are your goals for 2017 and how are you going to achieve them?
The truth is, it’s easy to make a goal… but it’s extremely hard to achieve them — especially when you don’t have an actionable plan in place.
New Years Resolutions at a Glance
Did you start off the year with a resolution of your own? Most likely you did… and one of them is probably even listed below among the “top five New Years resolutions” that are made almost every year. (source)
37% – Stay fit and healthy
32% – Lose weight
28% – Enjoy life to the fullest
25% – Spend less, save more
19% – Spend more time with family and friends
Now let’s take a look at some statistics on how successful these resolutions usually are. (source)
News Years Resolution Statistics Data
38% – Percent of Americans who absolutely never make New Year’s Resolutions 38%
8% – Percent of people who are successful in achieving their resolution 8%
49% – Percent who have infrequent success 49%
24% – Percent who never succeed and fail on their resolution each year 24%
The reasons for this mass failure (92%) is clear. The majority of resolutions will never have an action or goal plan in place. Instead, they are just made on a whim, during a drunken midnight celebration. But at the same time… they are continually made year after year.
Now think about how you would feel if you actually hit a few of your goals or surpassed them! Not only would you feel great, I’m sure you would also be counting down the days until New Years to get started with your next resolutions and goal setting targets.
The good news is, the best time to prepare for success, is before you even get started.
