Tips for setting a New Year’s Resolution for 2015

With 2015 about to be ushered in, countless people will set a New Year’s Resolution.
Unfortunately most people do not wind up keeping the New Year’s goal they set for themselves.
Don’t set resolutions that are too difficult to keep. Start by deciding upon a New Year’s resolution that’s attainable. This time of year makes a lot of people do a lot of reflecting. It’s time to look back, but more importantly look ahead. What kind of person do you want to be in the coming year? Here are 20 of the most common New Year’s resolutions as listed by Wikipedia:

  • Lose weight
  • Pursue a Satisfying and Fulfilling Career
  • Get a better job
  • Get fit
  • Eat right
  • Get out of debt
  • Become more organized
  • Save money
  • Improve grades
  • Get a better education

  • Take a trip
  • Volunteer to help others
  • Be less grumpy
  • Learn something new (such as a foreign language or music)
  • Try to get up early in the morning

  • Help the poor

Although statistics show more than two-thirds of Americans will make a New Year’s resolution, less than 5 percent actually succeed.
