Resolve to achieve!

It's that time of year again, when we all think about how we can start to better ourselves... But did you know that only 8% of New Year resolutions are kept? The most common New Year's resolutions consist of losing weight, getting a new job and saving money and whilst 75% stick to their resolution for the first week this then drops to 45% after six months.

Each year I make a resolution and for a couple of months I stick to it and then I don't know what happens, I just stop. But then for 2014 I decided enough was enough and I was determined to see my resolutions through and I managed to do it. I had two New Year's resolutions, one of which was to achieve the grades I wanted at A-Level and to find myself an alternative to university. And here I am as an apprentice at Sellick Partnership after successfully achieving my A-Level grades.

Here is how to achieve your 2015 resolutions:
  1. Keep the resolution simple - keep your list short and you'll find that it'll be a lot more achievable rather than a long list.
  2. Make them tangible - Whilst you should always set your goals high, make your New Year's resolutions tangible. Be specific when choosing your resolutions, if you want to start going to the gym, say how often you want to start going.
  3. Believe in yourself - if you have no self confidence that you can do it then there's a good chance that you're not going to. Keep yourself motivated and think about the long term results.
  4. Record your progress- if you can see how far you've come it will encourage you to keep going.
