New Year's Resolution

As the dust settles on New Year's celebrations we sometimes turn our minds to New Year's resolutions.  Will they work (when they might not of in the past)? What would it look like if they did?  

I'm no expert on resolutions and their likelihood of success.  I have, however, observed a lot of people make life changes.  Quitting smoking, losing weight, eating more healthily, drinking less alcohol, quitting sugar are just some of the common intentions I've witnessed clients set.

Lately I've been reflecting on why one person achieves their resolution and another doesn't.  


  • Is it "will" power?  I think it is in part.
  • Is it desire?  Yes, in part.
  • Is it having a stubborn personality? Perhaps.

There is actually plenty of interesting literature on why people are successful or not in setting and achieving resolutions if you care to search the internet.

My conclusion - the most important factor that distinguishes those likely to be successful.  A compelling personal reason to achieve the resolution (goal).

Let's break that down:

Compelling:  Something that really will make a significant difference for you in your life.  It may be small to others but to you it is important.

Personal:  I've seldom seen someone achieve a goal for someone else.  

So an option in setting up a resolution for 2017 could be to reflect on what is the most compelling thing you would like to achieve, personally in 2017 and enjoy the journey!

Acupuncturists frequently work with people to help them stay on track to achieve their goals - make sure you recruit a team to help you with yours..
