New Year’s resolutions fail because of the math, not magic or will power.
Only 12% of the mind is conscious.
That means we only have 12% of our minds to act with logic and reason, the rest runs entirely on subconscious programming.
Without making changes in the 88% that is the subconscious mind, no human can endure lasting change with just 12% effort.
You must act with your whole mind for true change to occur.
