Quitter’s Day is the second Friday of January each year. Quitter’s Day is set aside to recognize those who set new year goals and fail to achieve them. The tradition of setting New Year’s resolutions began 4,000 years ago with the ancient Babylonians. The idea for Quitter’s Day is to encourage and support those who have given up on their New Year’s resolution or goal to try again and ultimately succeed. Research has shown that people quit their resolutions for the year, and many good intentions are abandoned in about 2 weeks. Because this is only 3% of the entire year, which seems so tiny, it made me wonder why so many people want to improve their lives, businesses, and communities, yet for all our best efforts; we run out of willpower in only 2 weeks.
Let me tell you a huge secret that you are a successful person regardless of what you currently believe. We are all born with the tools to be a success. Ng b is actually the biggest secret about being successful is that it is attainable by all. So, if we all have the skills to fulfill our potential and be successful then why do so few people actually get there? It is because they don’t work to develop these four skills, Intrinsic Motivation, Learning/Self-Awareness, Creativity/Innovation and Flow/Focus.
