According to Forbes and a study conducted by University of Scranton, only 8% of people who set New Years Resolutions actually make a permanent change in their lives. The curve looks dim but we want to shine some light on it, and help you to Raise the Bar on your personal new year resolutions!
How can we help you Raise the Bar??
Well, first you need to tell us what your New Years Resolution was this year. We asked a few people what their plans were and discussed how they could Raise their Bar this year. To keep us all on track we encouraged them to join our TEDxRotterdam FaceBook group where we help each other, and cheer each other on. We are all in it together, let’s get that New Years Resolution going higher and higher!
We have had some great shares already…
I am not finished with my list yet. One of my goals is to do yoga a minimum of 4 times a week. Other goals are to be a good mom and partner, and save money. I also need to make a ‘let go of things’ list.
Cor van Drieberge:
Having presented at the TEDxAwards has given me a boost to start working on more presentations on different stages. So one of my New Years Resolutions, my new goals, is to present my ideas on many different stages throughout the world. To talk about martial arts, coaching and the benefits of this combination for everyone.
I love my kids but I think this year I will go for a bit more me time. Taking care of one self is also important!
This year I focus only on myself and selfgrowth. I Raise the Bar for myself.
