The Problem With New Years Resolutions

Did you make New Years resolutions this year? Did you already throw them over board?

New years resolutions can be great. They give you a chance to set your intentions for the year and make yourself accountable to them. But they can also be one of the most frustrating things to do.

What happens when you don't achieve your goals? You feel like you've failed, and that can make it hard to try again next year.

So what's the problem with New Years Resolutions? It's not that they're bad—they're just not sustainable. Often times we overestimate ourselves. We think we should aim high, higher, highest...

In reality, sustainable change starts with awareness, and awareness starts with being honest about where you are right now. Once we know where we are, we can start making small changes that move us toward our goals, step-by-step. That's where coaching comes in. Coaching can be such an effective tool for achieving change: it helps us take those steps one at a time so we don't get overwhelmed by the scale or scope of what might seem like an impossible task!

NY resolutions are hence almost meant to be broken. And it's not because people are bad, or lazy, or unmotivated. It's because we don't know how to change our lives in a way that will stick. Get yourself the support and accountability of a coach for sustainable change ✨
