|Over 1 MILLION people gather in Times Square, New York, to watch the famous ball drop to ring in the new year and welcome in their resolutions – but a whopping 1 BILLION people are estimated to watch it on television!|
The most common resolution is to exercise more (about 37% of resolutions).
About 22% of resolutions fail in the first week, 40% in the first month and 50% within 3 months.
Americans alone drink an estimated 360 MILLION bottles of champagne (which is ironic since cutting back on alcohol consumption is consistently the 2nd most popular resolution made).
Of those achieving their resolutions, about 40% were successful on the first try. The rest took multiple attempts with as much as 17% taking over 6 tries.
The number one reason for failed resolutions …. lack of a clear goal.
