Tomorrow is what is known as Quitter's Day. Studies have shown that about 80% of people give up on their New Years Resolution by the second Friday in January.
The studies have lots of explanations for why that is. But let me tell you what I think it all boils down to - we're putting unrealistic expectations on ourselves and trying to be perfect just because a made up calendar system says it's a new year.
Want to try something different this year? Let me offer you a different perspective.
Today is the first New Moon of the year.
New Moons are an ideal time to set intentions and start thinking about what you want to create or bring in.
New Moons and the dark months of winter are not the time to be super busy and trying to do all of the things.
Today is a perfect day to think about your word for the year, choose a goal or set an intention if you haven't already.
If you're feeling discouraged or ready to quit, use today as a chance to reevaluate and reframe your expectations.
For example, maybe your goal is to get a new job and you told yourself that you'd apply for 5 jobs every day, tell everyone you know that you're looking and go to networking events. But so far in 2024 you've done none of those things, take today to reevaluate. That probably wasn't a realistic expectation to have of yourself.
Instead you could decide that you'll have your resume updated by the end of January. Or reach out to one person in your network each week this month to let them know you're looking.
Then once you've done that, you pick the next step that moves you closer to your goal. Keep doing that until your goal is achieved.
A sustainable plan will you get there. Quitting won't.
