Did you know? Only 8% of people are successful in achieving their New Year’s resolution.
Stanford behavioral scientist, Dr. Fogg has found that the secret to making successful changes is to make and practice a series of teeny, tiny changes, leading to your goal.
The keys to staying on track and successfully keeping your resolution:
1. Create new, teeny tiny habits to help you break the bad habit.
2. Practice your teeny habit 5 times right after you “assign” it to yourself. This repeating helps “seal” in the habit according to Dr. Fogg.
3. Be early or be late, by practicing your tiny habits in the morning or in the evening, to ensure that they are more effective.
4. Celebrate every single time you complete your tiny habit. Dr. Fogg says self-celebration is a crucial step to success, because it affirms the great, tiny thing you have completed. Have a set of ways to celebrate. It could be a funky dance move, an upbeat song
Now go ahead and keep your resolutions, so you can raise the success rates for resolutions beyond 8%.
