With the start of the New Year, tons of people are excited and ready to finally make a change. Motivation is a great feeling that can put you on the right path for success.
Unfortunately, as of this week, the last traces of willpower are fading fast. ONLY 9-14 DAYS into the New Year and 71% of people are already throwing in the towel. Can you believe 2 weeks is the amount of time most people will put into their New Years resolution? When your motivation is high, taking action is easy. Once it starts to dwindle down, is when things get really rough.
The most popular resolutions are always related to physical well being, with lose weight, stay fit, and get healthy make 3 of the top 10 New Years Resolutions for 2015. And 38% adults said they were trying to eat healthier or lose weight.
It’s no secret that most people never complete their New Years resolutions, so why do so many people fail every year? It is pretty simple. Making a resolution is easy, maintaining your motivation is the hard part.
Make sure you set an attainable goal with a plan in place to reach it. There are so many obstacles for losing motivation, so be prepared for when your motivation starts to weaken. Instead of changing your entire diet all in one day, make small changes. This will help prevent you from looking for fast results in to little time.
“Don’t set yourself up for failure. The point of starting small is to introduce a new set of actions that will eventually become habits. Once your new actions become habits, your level of motivation will play a less significant role on whether or not you succeed. In other words, the main goal is making gradual changes that will become part of a healthy lifestyle.”
Some people do fine pursuing a goal by themselves, but for others having some support can be the missing link. Finding a mentor who can push you and help keep you on track will encourage you to stay motivated and see results.
