Average people spend their days wishing, dreaming, waiting, and hoping for success. Successful people spend their days believing, thinking, acting, and growing their way to success.
The beginning of the year is the one time annually when nearly nearly 50% of Americans (160 million people) will make a new year’s resolution. Yet only 8% actually succeed in achieving their resolution.

- setting unrealistic goals
- failing to track progress
- and (as comical as it may sound) simply forgetting about the resolution all together.
