An optimistic spirit of a “new year” motivates many people to make a New Year's resolution. A New Year's resolution is a tradition, in which a person makes a promise to do an act of self-improvement beginning from New Year's Day.
Each January, roughly one in three Americans will resolve to better themselves in some way. A much smaller percentage of people actually make good on those resolutions. While about 75% of people stick to their goals for at least a week, less than half (46%) are still on target six months later.
