Ditching Resolutions: Uncover Why They Fail, and Discover What Really Works!

Happy New Year! 

It’s a crisp, fresh page.
A shiny, new whiteboard.
A beautiful, blank slate.

The promise of a new year… what magic 💫 will 2024 hold?!?

It’s an exciting time, yes!
And, it can also be a tad overwhelming.

Setting intentions, resolutions, and goals, OH MY! (A little Wizard of Oz reference there… get it?!? 🤣)

At this time of year, many of us are filled with a sense of optimism and the urge to make resolutions. We vow to exercise more, eat more greens, get organized, save money, or finally start that dream project. Yet, despite our best intentions, studies show that a significant percentage of New Year’s resolutions are abandoned by February!


So, why do resolutions, so full of promise and potential, often end in disappointment? And more importantly, what can we do differently?


The Pitfalls of Traditional Resolutions:

Unrealistic Goals.

Many resolutions fail because they are simply too ambitious (or, there are TOO MANY of them!) Setting high expectations without a realistic plan can lead to frustration and burnout.

Lack of Planning.

Resolutions often lack a clear, step-by-step plan for achievement. Without a roadmap, how are you going to know where you’re going? And when you get there? It becomes all too easy to lose direction and momentum.

Ignoring the Importance of Mindset.

A resolution is a goal for the future, but if our mindset isn’t aligned with that goal, it’s like trying to drive with the handbrake on. Personal growth and mindset shifts are critical components often overlooked. You need to step into becoming the type of person who would achieve these goals. And BELIEVE you can.

All-or-Nothing Approach.

Many resolutions are framed in absolute terms – success or failure. This black-and-white thinking leaves little room for the nuances of real life, and can lead to giving up after the first setback. You’re going to fall off the horse at some point. It’s not going to be perfect. But are you going to get back on and keep going anyhow?!?


So, how can we break this cycle of unfulfilled resolutions?

I’m glad you asked!

The answer lies in evolving our approach.
Enter in: “11 Days of New Year’s Evolutions.” 

Instead of fleeting New Year’s resolutions, this year we’re embracing the idea of New Year’s EVOLUTIONS. 

Imagine starting 2024 not just with goals, but with a transformed mindset ready to achieve them.

I wanted to address the shortcomings of traditional resolutions by focusing on gradual, meaningful evolution to create lasting change…

So, I designed “11 Days of New Year’s Evolutions— starting January 8th — to do exactly that! And the best part? It’s absolutely FREE.
