40 to 45% of American adult make one or more resolutions each year. A rough statisitics on the life of these resolutions as time goes on: - past the first week: 75% - past 2 weeks: 71% - after one month: 64% - after 6 months: 46% While a lot of people who make new years resolutions do break them, research shows that making resolutions is useful. People who explicitly make resolutions are 10 times more likely to attain their goals than people who don't explicitly make resolutions: In Nichiren Buddhism too, accomplishing goals provide actual proof of the faith and increases joy of the practice. In the following link some members share how they were able to bring about a change. http://www.sgi.org/experiences.html So, would you mind sharing some of your New Year Resolutions..
