New Year’s Eve has historically been a cultural marker for Americans to set goals and initiate change. Unfortunately, these resolutions are known to fall through since they lack a sense of conviction. Real change needs to come from a place of willingness to both learn and take action. Since many of these resolutions lack personal resonance. Instead, try to set goals on your own schedule that include doing more of what you’re already good at, and then start to increase the amount of time you spend doing things you dislike overtime.
- New Years Resolutions are a nice thought, but almost always fail.
- One of the reasons they often fail is because change needs to come from real conviction.
- One way of making a real change is to focus on maximizing your strengths instead of fixing your weaknesses.
“New Yea’s Eve is a generic cultural marker, helpful in noting the passage of time and the cyclical nature of things, but lacking, for most people, any deep personal resonance.”
