What's the best resolution?

It's a brand new year and you have a brand new opportunity to make a massive impact in your community, in your business and on your personal development.

Here are some stats on New Year resolutions and some interesting facts.

First off, only 45% of people make resolutions.

Within the first week, 25% have already broken their resolution.

By six months nearly 60% have fallen off the wagon - the rest are unaccounted for.

Those aren't reassuring facts.

Here is a list of the Top Ten Resolutions made for 2013.
  1. Lose Weight
  2. Getting Organized
  3. Spend Less, Save More
  4. Enjoy Life to the Fullest
  5. Staying Fit and Healthy
  6. Learn Something Exciting
  7. Quit Smoking
  8. Help Others in Their Dreams
  9. Fall in Love
  10. Spend More Time with Family
These should NOT be resolutions, they should be a way of life. That list of top ten resolutions should really be called...

Ten Common Sense Commandments to Living a Better Life.

Everyone should just be doing this stuff, don't you think?

People make these resolutions only to break them at an alarming rate - losing further hope.

But instead we continue to make resolutions, more like spontaneous proclamations of how we want the future to look, only to fall short because resolutions give you a false sense of preparedness.

Resolutions are a complete and total waste of time. Resolutions don't work. So if you have them, just forget about them now. Just stop.

Set goals instead.
