Don't Throw in the Towel on January 12th
January 12 is the average day that most people give up on their
New Year's resolution. Now whether or not you do a New
Year's resolution, I don't care but I do want to talk about if you
do one why January 12th is the main day that people quit and w
hat you can do about not quitting that Day.
First and foremost, the there's two quick little tips that I've read
and researched on and you know have implemented before in
the past to help get through these little bumps if you will.
January 12th is less than two weeks in the new year and not
even coming close to the 365 days that are in the entire year.
Here is what we are going to do to succeed this year…
First of all, if you've already made a New Year's resolution put
it down in the comment section below. I'd love to hear what it
is. Second are the tips.
Be very specific.
First of all the biggest mistake most people make is they don't
get specific. They make a very blanket. I'm going to get in
shape. I'm going to lose weight. I'm going to make more money.
Well if you want to make more money, here's a dollar. You've
made more money. It's done. Right that's not specific enough.
You need to get a little bit more specific. I'm going to work out
five days a week. I'm going to lose 22 pounds. I'm going to get
down to my fighting weight. I'm going to get down to the
weight I was in college. I'm going to get out of “whatever”.
I'm using a lot of health-related ones because that's kind of what
I'm going for this year because I had a little bit of a rough health
That’s kind of what I'm leaning into. Instead of going for
Multiple goals and saying to yourself – I am going to work out
five days a week and I'm going to eat healthy and I'm going to
do this and do that and have four different resolutions. To be
Successful you should choose just one at a time.
The biggest mistakes people make is trying to do too many at
Once. Studies have actually shown that if you just try to do one
Change at a time you have an 80% chance of completing it all
the way through if it's realistic. If you just say I'm going to work
out five days a week you have an 80% chance of being
If you add a second goal, you go down to a 35% chance of
Success. And if you had a third goal, the chances of being
successful goes down to 5% or less. it goes down to 5% Let's not
do that people. That's just silly. Let’s make your goals more
realistic and then add on a little bit later when the first one has a
little bit of success and a habit in place then you can add another
The second tip is to make yourself mini-promises and add
integrity so that no matter what you do you're going to do this
thing that you promised yourself.
For instance, if that thing if you're trying to get in better shape
and general health, let's make it to where you are going to
work out five days a week and I'm going to drink half my body
weight in water and no matter what I do, I'm doing that thing.
It's minor but make those little promises so small that they're
so easy to do and so silly that you just you just have to do it.
To the point where if you're laying in bed at 9:30 at night and you
remember your mini promise to yourself that you will get up out
of bed and finish that task, even if it only takes five minutes to
jump on the treadmill, drink more water, etc.
These two tips alone will help dramatically increase your chances
Of being part of the 8 percent of people who actually complete
Their New Year’s Resolutions.
