Resolutions and Elephants

Did you set a New Year’s Resolution? If so you are 92% likely to fall short unless…

According to the Journal of Clinical Psychology, only 8% of people succeed in keeping their New Year’s Resolution.  New Year’s Resolutions most often involve making a habit change, which to be successful needs to include your rider and elephant.

Your Mindset

Are you a leader in your life? If so, then you must have this one trait.

While there are many traits of leaders and achievers, one characteristic is inevitably more important than intelligence, heart, willpower or natural abilities. The critical skill is an open mindset.

The F-Word

Do you spit out the F-bomb—I FAILED! Instead, say this F-word.

When you set or help others set goals, do you mistakenly confuse a failed attempt as failure of the goal itself? If so, you are undermining long-term success.

See when we fail, it is definitive in our mind either we didn’t, couldn’t or can’t do something.  It siphons our energy, enthusiasm and worst of all it eliminates gaining valuable information from the experience. Celebrate a new F-word—Feedback.
