Reasons Why Some New Years Resolutions Don't Work

I was watching one of my favorite financial gurus online who goes by the name of Grant Cardone. He had a short video on 6 reasons why New Years resolutions don't work. I have never made a New Years resolution because I just never thought it was important. There is a statistic out there that says 80% of New Years resolutions fail by February. I truly believe this because most people have problems with consistency and planning. So when I scrolled through youtube and watched the video I had to agree with him 100%.

His six reasons are:

1) No real commitment

2) People have no plan around their resolution

3) WHY do you even want to do it?

4) Accountability

5) Your surroundings have to change

6)You need future dates. (The speed you commit to something determines the velocity.)

Now I don't have a problem with people making new years resolutions if they have a plan to go along with it. The problem is just saying you want to do something and put in no action or plan. Take four minutes to watch the video above and watch Grant go in depth on his six reasons why.

This new years have a reason why you want to do something to make your life better because speaking things into existence with no action might be a waste of your time.
