Does the very idea of declaring a New Year's resolution make you cringe, or does it bring a sense of hope for change in the upcoming year?
January can be a time of reflection. Think about the past year: You can learn from your experiences and renew your priorities and goals.
Are you a part of the 40% who create New Year's resolutions for yourself, or do you avoid creating resolutions because past resolutions went unfulfilled? It might be easiest to give up, or not even start writing goals due to past "failures." Maybe you have convinced yourself that you just can't change, so what's the point in trying?
How do you let go of the past to create space for possibilities in your future?
Many people are stuck in a cycle of self-defeating behavior that can paralyze them from making any forward movement in their lives, from achieving the things that are important. Make this time of year work for you by creating an environment that supports positive change and forward movement towards goal or resolutions.
