Why New Years Resolutions Don’t Work

Have you been bombarded in your Facebook newsfeed lately with ads of products promising to FINALLY change that one thing about you or your life that bothered you all of last year? In fact it bothered you the year before that and ….. the year before that? So you made a New Year’s Resolution for 2017. The Statistic Brain Research Institute recently published the Top 10 New Years Resolutions Statistics for 2016. Have you made one or more of these resolutions for 2017 (or any other year)?

Top 10 New Years Resolutions

According to Clinical Director of The Vitality Project, Dr. Kevin McLaughlin, the number one health concern people have entering the New Year is weight-loss. No surprise right? Many many people want to change the appearance of their bodies or improve their health and well-being on some level. Just out of curiosity, today I Googled the term “how to keep a New Year’s Resolution.” In half a second I got 43 million results. That’s right – 43 MILLION articles. It seems that every year we make promises to ourselves in the form of a “resolution” yet we are never able to reach our end goal. We fizzle out after a couple of weeks into January – which brings us to where we are right now.

Visualization, Meditation, and Willpower

Perhaps you’ve heard of the amazing potential of visualization, meditation, or even how you can reach your goals by sheer willpower alone. We all have that one friend or colleague who we think, “She is the most determined person I have ever met! Whatever she puts her mind to do, she accomplishes!” It’s not that methods like visualization or meditation or attending the latest “can-do” seminar don’t help. They can work – yet what nobody tells you is that they have somewhat limited potential. Additionally, any of these methods require consistent effort over time to provide you with the results you want, you really really want! (yay Spice Girls!) When your life or schedule gets busy, the kids get sick, you go on vacation or you need to meet a new deadline at work, that’s when the rubber hits the road. Or not. Here’s one thing we know for sure about history: it repeats itself. How can you best know how to predict (your) future behavior? You got it – by examining (your) past behavior. Were you able to lose the weight, make more money or find your dream life partner last year? How about the year before? Or the year before that?

It’s not YOU!

Here’s the good news: you don’t have a character deficit, a personality flaw or an inherent lack of discipline or willpower. You’re not a bad person who can’t reach your goals therefore you should stop trying.

Real Change Happens on a Subconscious Level

To help you understand how to access the subconscious mind where all real and lasting change takes place, let me demonstrate with this simple analogy. Let’s say you only speak, write, and understand the English language and Chinese is completely foreign to you. For this example then, the conscious part of your brain understands English and the subconscious part of your brain understands Chinese. When you want to lose weight, get a different job/change your career path or find the love of your life, the first thing you do is make a plan for how to achieve your goal. For argument’s sake let’s say you decide you are going to use your willpower and dedication like never before! When you speak to yourself in English about how you will achieve your goal, you are accessing only the conscious part of your brain. However, if you are going to engage your brain to help you in a way you’ve never used it before, you need to access your subconscious mind. Therefore, you need to speak Chinese. Yet you don’t know Chinese! How are you supposed to access your subconscious mind if you can’t speak Chinese? Blueprint for Changes is your Chinese.
