When asked, most people will agree that having goals in life is important. In fact, come January each year, there is a renewed focus on setting goals and bettering ourselves. These can range from losing weight, saving more money, paying down debt, or finally giving up smoking. Yet it always seems that by mid-February these goals fall by the wayside and old habits creep back. In fact, 92 percent of people never achieve their New Year’s resolutions. Furthermore, one of four people make the same resolution every year.

These facts certainly make you wonder: Why are we so bad at achieving our goals?
