My friend, Kathryn, and I spent the yesterday together- from 11am to 9pm – at my house planning our year. And oh, it’s going to be good.
There’s not a moment to lose.
So I wanted to send you an email real quick to make sure you have everything you need to be super successful this year…
Check out this study.
A 2007 study by Richard Wiseman from the University of Bristol involving 3,000 people showed that 88% of those who set New Year resolutions fail, despite the fact that 52% of the study’s participants were confident of success at the beginning.
Crap. 88% failed? I hate that…
So what caused them to fail?
- Going it alone
- Relying on willpower
- Not being specific enough
- Repeating failed resolutions
- Not planning ahead
- No Long-term plan
- No clear Why?
Anything you want to make happen, I want you to have the ability to repeat success, and make it happen over and over again.
It’s not about luck or willpower or even praying a ton (not that any of those aren’t handy). You have more power than you think.
So what caused the 12% to succeed?
Here’s a list I made after reading the study plus I included some specific items I’ve discovered from my 20+ years of supporting people in making their life dreams happen.
> Make One Commitment
> Be Specific
> Share in a Group
> Must have a System of Success
> A Long-term Plan
> A Big Why?
That’s a good solid list right? Do you know how to do that for yourself? Can you give it to yourself? For more than a week?
Because once you get this, you GET IT!
Say YES to creating a year that matters!
