The start of a New Year brings new enthusiasm, optimism and a desire to make changes for the better.
While setting resolutions are good, studies have revealed that the majority of people abandon their New Year’s resolutions within a month, if not earlier.
Most New Year’s resolutions are related to weight loss, eating healthier, earning more money, improving finances, getting a better job, getting into a new relationship, or improving existing relationships.
When we abandon our New Year’s resolutions, it can lower our self-esteem and our self-confidence, and cause us to believe that we’re incapable of making positive changes in our lives. This can leave us feeling worse about ourselves than when we actually set those New Year’s resolutions.
