Top 10 New Years Resolutions

According to Wikipedia:New Year’s resolution is a commitment that a person makes to one or more personal goals, projects, or the reforming of a habit. A key element to a New Year’s resolution that sets it apart from other resolutions is that it is made in anticipation of the New Year and new beginnings. People committing themselves to a New Year’s resolution generally plan to do so for the whole following year. This lifestyle change is generally interpreted as advantageous.

Approximately one in every three Americans will make a New Years promise.  Have you made yours? Studies like to say that less than half of new years resolutions fall short, but the statistic give by Statistic Brain is 46% of people who make New Years resolutions will keep their resolution past 6 months… that looks like a glass half full to me! An almost 50% chance of you following through on your resolution is certainly worth the risk! If there even is a risk at all.
