Ok, that was a bit inflammatory, but it’s true; new years resolutions almost never work. Here’s why:
If you were actually capable of making that certain necessary change in your life, you wouldn’t have waited until New Years Eve to do it. The reason it hasn’t happened is because you’re too weak to pull it off. So, rather than pretending that this “resolution” will make a difference, spend your time eliminating the weakness that’s causing you to fail.
So they’re not for “losers” really, but for people who fail. They’re for people who have not figured out yet how to succeed.
