Yesterday, we reviewed the week in light of the resolutions and goals we set for this year (click here to be taken to the post). We also learned the sobering fact that 25% of people who set goals and resolutions by January 1st, have already abandoned them by now.

That means they’ve quit. They’ve given up. They’ve thrown in the towel!

I know this isn’t you because you’re here reading this post!  🙂

But I want to talk about increasing your chances for sticking with it this year because another sobering fact is that after 6 months, 60% of the people who set goals and resolutions at the beginning of the year have abandoned them for the year.

Don’t let that be you!

Your homework today is to ask yourself what you’re going to do differently this year that will help you be successful when you may not have been before?

Perhaps you’ll actually do the homework from yesterday (click here to be taken to the post then scroll down to the homework section) especially the part about creating your Motivating Why statement/phrase/word.

Perhaps you’ll create space in your living area that’s yours alone (not shared with anyone else or used for any other activity) where you can work on your dreams.

Perhaps you’ll earmark a block of time on a specific day when you will consistently show up and work on your dreams, no matter what.

Whatever it is, commit to it and do it!

I know you can—you can do it!

I’m so proud of you!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

Lauren
