My friend, Kathryn, and I spent the yesterday together- from 11am to 9pm – at my house planning our year. And oh, it’s going to be good.

There’s not a moment to lose.

So I wanted to send you an email real quick to make sure you have everything you need to be super successful this year…

Check out this study.

A 2007 study by Richard Wiseman from the University of Bristol involving 3,000 people showed that 88% of those who set New Year resolutions fail, despite the fact that 52% of the study’s participants were confident of success at the beginning.

Crap. 88% failed? I hate that…

So what caused them to fail?

  1. Going it alone
  2. Relying on willpower
  3. Not being specific enough
  4. Repeating failed resolutions
  5. Not planning ahead
  6. No Long-term plan
  7. No clear Why?

Anything you want to make happen, I want you to have the ability to repeat success, and make it happen over and over again.

It’s not about luck or willpower or even praying a ton (not that any of those aren’t handy). You have more power than you think.

So what caused the 12% to succeed?

Here’s a list I made after reading the study plus I included some specific items I’ve discovered from my 20+ years of supporting people in making their life dreams happen.

> Make One Commitment

> Be Specific

> Accountability

> Share in a Group

> Mentorship

> Must have a System of Success

> A Long-term Plan

> A Big Why?

That’s a good solid list right? Do you know how to do that for yourself? Can you give it to yourself? For more than a week?

Because once you get this, you GET IT!

Say YES to creating a year that matters!
