The correct answer to this question is 40%. This 40 % of people take the time to create a list of things they wish to accomplish in the New Year. However, by the time the New Year is over, only 8% of people have accomplished their resolutions.
Oftentimes, the resolutions are not achieved because they are not realistic or within reach to be attained. The only good thing is that there is always the New Year, which gives a clean slate to try again. One way to ensure you achieve your goals is to have an accountability partner, to make sure that you stay on track.
Almost one half of all Americans make New Year's resolution; however, only a small amount of people sticks to their resolutions and follows through. Instead of making large, elaborate resolutions that might be difficult to work through, try setting small, attainable goals for yourself one step at a time.
Your excitement over the prospect of achieving something will dwindle and turn into frustration if you can't reach your goal. It would help if you also tried sharing your goals with friends and family. Sharing your goals will hold you accountable for your actions and help you build momentum. Many people make New Year's resolutions, but not many people see them through.
