A calendar gives you a timeline and keeps you aware of the season in place at the time. Many people take January as the time to set new goals and let go of the bad but it is more than that. Change is a decision but sticking to it is usually the hardest bit. Any sort of change needs time, commitment and focus. However, many people end every year the same way as they started and these are the reasons you may not achieve your New Year resolutions.

1. You’re doing it without a support system.

You are not an island so you can’t live like one, while you should not depend on others for your success you need to have a good support system. Choose someone or a group of people who aspire the same things as you do and strive to achieve your goals together. This only makes it easier and you will be able to encourage each other.

2. You don’t believe in yourself enough.

No one else matters if you don’t believe in yourself. You need to believe in your self and work on your mental, physical and emotional state. Once you believe in yourself it will be easier to literally do anything.

3. You have too many resolutions.

The main problem with having too many resolutions is that you end up doing none at all or just giving up too soon. Focus on three resolutions and give it a timeline and have a strategy of achieving them.

4. You give up easily.

If you’re a person that gives up easily then you need to change. Remember that nothing is achieved without consistency and if you really want it you will be patient enough until it becomes reality.

5. You lack time management.

Never waste time on useless things then lie to yourself that you are being constructive. When you manage your time well enough you end up committing to your goals and even sometimes disappear from other activities so you can be able to focus.

6. You didn’t allocate a budget to the resolutions that need money.

Things like weight loss need a budget if you don’t have a budget for your goals then you may end up feeling overwhelmed and give up.

8. You still keep the same company that would lead you to certain things.

You cannot expect to do the same thing and expect different results. When you set your mind on something there’s no way you will be hanging out with the same crowd or be in the same monotonous routine you were in before.

9. You keep making excuses.

You are the only person that can make changes in your life, so stop blaming others and creating excuses.

10. Procrastinate all the time.

If you keep procrastinating you may do what you’re meant to do at the wrong time or be late. People will not take you seriously and eventually you will stop trying.

11. You set resolutions to please people and not for yourself.

Never set resolutions that are just for pleasing people, these are the types of resolutions you like hearing yourself say. When people ask you about them you tend to say a whole list of things that you don’t even care about. Remember you don’t even have to tell people your serious resolutions so just hush and let people see the results.
