I want you all to think back to last years New Years Eve – now what big resolution did you make? Fast forward to today – have you kept it?

Millions of us make our resolutions in the same way every year but the experts say this is not the most realistic way to make a long-term change. Our brains are designed to give greater value to an immediate rather than a delayed reward, which means that the desire to go back to that comfy old habit is strong.

Read on for a quick run down on how you can really make your Resolutions work for you and a Video from Dr.Richard Bandler, the co creator of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), as he explains why people do not go through with their New Years Resolution and how they can reprogram their mind to face the challenges of change to accomplish their resolutions.

Even if you do overcome a bad habit, it can come back to haunt you. Researchers at Massachusetts institute of technology found that after a habit was broken, the habit pattern actually remains in the brain, lying dormant and can reappear when triggered by the old cues. Despite the challenges, it is possible to transform your ways. Keep your mind focused on empowered thoughts and set yourself small stepping stones. Reward yourself along the way for what you want to achieve and to motivate you so you do not return to the old habit. Remember the one thing that you have control over are your thoughts.

It also seems that men and women respond to different tactics. Phycologist Richard Wiseman, author of quirkology, tracked three thousand people who made New Years resolutions and found that after one year , just twelve percent were successful. Women have more success when they made their goal public and garnered support from family and friends. Men were more likely to succeed when they created S.M.A.R.T (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, time-based-goals)

In this video below Psychologist & Co Inventor of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) Dr.Richard Bandler explains why people do not go through with their New Years Resolution and how they can reprogram their mind to face the challenges of change to accomplish their resolutions.
