Believe it or not, every year roughly half the population in the world create New Year’s resolution. Most of our lives we have been told to make a new year’s resolution but never taught how to not quit the same when it hurts. Elon Musk says “If you need inspiring words, you should not do it”.
This sums up to build our own motivation that is driven by internal rewards commonly known as Intrinsic motivation. Most common New Year’s resolution is following a diet plan and you can achieve this by creating your intrinsic motivation. Just conquer this with a simple hack of maintaining a diet diary.

Accept the Bait

That in turn let them know that you are committed to something and once after that they will try to push you to accomplish your target.
