3 Ways To Increase Success Rate for Your Goals

A 2007 study by Richard Wiseman from the University of Bristol involving 3,000 people showed that 88% of those who set New Year resolutions fail, despite the fact that 52% of the study's participants were confident of success at the beginning. 

Woman may be surprised to know that: 
  • Men achieved their goal 22% more often when they engaged in goal setting, (a system where small measurable goals are being set; such as, a kg a week, instead of saying "lose weight"), 
  • While women succeeded 10% more when they made their goals public and got support from their friends.
Quoting Frank Ra (author of the new year's resolution book "A course in happiness": "Resolutions are more sustainable when 
  1. Shared, both in terms of with whom you share the benefits of your resolution, and with whom you share the path of maintaining your resolution. 
  2. Peer-support makes a difference in success rate with new year's resolutions". 
  3. It is also noted that talking with a coach or trainer or counselor about setting goals and new year resolutions can help you keep those resolutions.
