Let’s face it: we all have resolutions that we carry over from year to year like a bad debt. And though the reasons may vary depending upon the individual and the circumstances, here are the three major reasons why they haven‘t worked.

1). Your resolutions are unrealistic

2). Life gets in the way and you lose your passion

3). Your goals are too broadly based

Take for example, the resolution that many Americans have every year to lose weight and exercise more. It typically is not achieved because a lot of folks simply don’t have the time to (realistically) fit it into their busy schedules, and… well, for most people exercise sucks. Am I right here?
