Why Your 2011 New Year’s Resolution Failed

There’s a very good chance that you’ve set a number of resolutions for yourself and your chiropractic website.  You want to get visitors to your website and bring them into your office.  How come most people don’t succeed with their resolutions?

This past week, I asked a friend what her resolution was for this year.  She said, "I am going to try to lose fifteen pounds."

There are a number of things wrong with stating your goal this way.  To begin, let me quote one of the great intellectual masters who lived long before Buddha and Socrates.

"Do or do not.  There is no try." – Yoda

When you declare you will "try" to do something, you’re telling yourself and the world that it’s not likely to happen.  With that level of confidence, how can you succeed at any goal? 

If you were interviewing receptionists and one said, "I’ll try to get to work on time every day," you probably wouldn’t hire him or her.  Hold yourself to the same standard with your own chiropractic website goals for 2011.
