Forget the New Year's resolutions you make every year. Experts believe that they will not help you define and fulfill your goals, as you yourself have probably convinced yourself. Every year you promise yourself to start a diet, change your job, travel more, pay more attention to your he alth, find time for your loved ones and friends, but you never succeed.

Specialists believe that the lack of success is due to the wrong way we set our goals for the next year. That's why they don't really work.

The "best" way to fail the success of your promises is to set unrealistically high goals."If you're trying to bite off more than you can swallow at once, you're not going to succeed," says Dr. Jessica Schlader, an associate professor in the Department of Clinical Psychology at Stony Brook University in New York. In an interview with the site thehe, she says that there is nothing wrong with thinking big and in perspective, as long as our goals are well planned and considered. Here's what else she advises:

Don't set a date without being well warmed up

The first and most important thing in keeping your New Year's resolutions is to not rush into your January 1st goal. Most people make this mistake. To be successful, set realistic dates to start implementing your plans, with a proper "warm-up" beforehand, similar to a pre-workout warm-up. Prepare your mind and consciousness. Take small steps toward change so you're ready to start acting on your plan.

Determine carefully whether your promise is a real goal or just a wish

People often confuse achievement goals with dreams and desires. This is also what drives them to failure. Some more sensitive individuals may even become depressed due to the despair of an unfulfilled dream. So try to take a realistic look at your promises and put dreams and wishes on the back burner.

Set "smart" goals

It is these goals that are the important goals that are clearly defined, regulated and well planned. This also makes them more attainable unlike wishes and dreams. If you target your New Year's resolutions correctly and purposefully, you'll be surprised how much easier it will be to achieve them.

Ask yourself the magic question

Help yourself clarify your goals by asking yourself some clarifying magic questions such as "What do I want to change in my life?", "What do I want to do differently?", "What do I want to change in thinking to succeed?”, “Where have I gone wrong so far?”.

Work in centimeters, not kilometers

In order to be able to fulfill your New Year's resolutions and achieve your goals, it is important to take small but concrete and precise steps instead of rushing and acting rashly.
