The year 2014 has barely begun, but it may already be getting tough to keep your resolutions.
Studies show it's typically about 2 to 3 weeks into a new year that resolutions already start getting old.
Doctor Scott Bea is a clinical psychologist at Cleveland Clinic.
He says this is the time where we see people start to give.
He says only 8 percent of people stick with their New Year's resolutions.
He says people typically fail because they try to do too much.
To be successful, give yourself attainable goals each day, and don't be afraid to provide yourself some incentive.
Doctor Bea says its okay to ask for help or surround yourself with others who are trying to make similar changes.
