There’s one simple reason that 88% of people sabotage their own goals and it has nothing to do with lack of desire or information.
Without understanding this critical element of success, no amount of willpower will get you closer to your goals.
Click below to learn more about this critical ingredient of success (and how Pavlok can help).
It's almost the New Year, and if you're like most people, you are probably making plans for what you want to accomplish 2020.
Without fail, millions of people around the world will count down to midnight, vowing to wake up earlier, go to the gym more often, work harder and generally be the best version of themselves...just as soon as the clock strikes midnight.
But the stats are clear: 88% of New Years Resolutions will fizzle out before the end of January. You might as well sign the death certificates here and now now.
Treadmills will collect dust. Appointments will be skipped. Books will go unfinished. Projects will be procrastinated. Snooze buttons will be pressed. Time and time again, well-intentioned New Years resolutions fly over the Bermuda Triangle of willpower and crash into the ocean of distractions and daydreams.
It's not for lack of trying, though. We really want to change and we've tried every year.
You've tried the same yo-yo diet for 3 years running.
It's not because we don't know we "should" make changes. It's not because we don't have enough information.
You know you need to get more sleep, drink more water, exercise more and meditate daily.
Yet despite everything you know, you just can't get yourself to follow through. And you're not alone. This is the story of almost everybody.
So the question is: is self-sabotage and squandered potential just an inevitable fact of adult life...or is there something else going on here?
When we were in school, it seemed like many different people had a say in how our life progressed. This was both restrictive and comforting at the same time.
Teachers and parents pushed us to get work done or clean up after ourselves. Grades had to be earned, benchmarks had to be met. If we veered off course, somebody was always there to tell us exactly where we'd gone wrong and how to get back on track.
Then, adulthood hit us and the dynamic changed forever. We suddenly became our own parents. And it's terrifying.
"Adulting" is a lot harder than it looks — primarily because at the end of the day, everything is your responsibility. Now, it's all on you.
Just like that, you begin to realize that even the best laid plans aren't enough. It takes more than hoping to change your life.
It doesn't matter if you really want to change. It doesn't matter if you know exactly what to do.
What truly matters is accountability: who are you accountable to and what are the stakes?
When it comes to setting goals for ourselves and following through, we don't have anybody to hold us accountable — so we do nothing. We fool ourselves into thinking that we will change, but since nobody is checking in on our progress, we avoid, delay and deny.
This is how resolutions die.
But it doesn't have to be that way...
It's easy to plan or track what you want to do. It's so much harder to actually follow through and do it. That's why having even a small amount of accountability changes everything.
Accountability is the difference between dreaming and doing.
That's why we invented Pavlok — the only wearable device in the world that doesn't just track what you do, but also helps you follow through with your goals, create positive new habits and break bad habits.
Over 100,000 satisfied customers have used Pavlok to:

Here's how it works...
Order your Pavlok device.
Use the device to break bad habits & build positive ones.
Transform your life forever.
Pavlok is the wearable device that releases a mild electric stimulus to help you reduce cravings, break bad habits, and change your life. Pavlok is your natural and lasting solution to quitting smoking, nail biting, hair touching, negative thinking, procrastinating, eating sugar, and more.
Pavlok can also help you build good habits, like training your body to wake up on its own, being more productive by keeping you on task, and helping you gain a more positive outlook on life.
When you order the device, you'll receive a wristband, a module and a charging cable. Insert the module into the wristband, and you can strap it on your wrist like any standard wristwatch.
Download the Pavlok app from the Google Play or Apple App Store, and you'll be able to set it up.
Once you are connected, you can control the intensity of your vibration or zap. We recommend starting with 30%. Whenever you engage in your unwanted habit, press the lightning bolt button on your Pavlok wristband and administer a zap to begin breaking your habit.
Getting started with Pavlok is simple. The box includes the wristband, the module, and the charging cable.
Modules come ~50% charged, but we recommend plugging it into the cable for an hour before setting it up. A single charge lasts for around ten days.
I just hit the Pavlok, which will zap me. First, that will help wake me up for one and second, it creates a negative association with hitting snooze. Instead of hitting the sleep more/ get fired/ waste your life button, I hit the Pavlok.
I tried a lot of things to form new habits and break old habits. I started using the little alarm system that helps to wake you up. After doing that for 30 days I woke up more consistently than I ever have in my life. Love my Pavlok.
Pavlok gets me up every morning without ever needing to feel the "zap." My brain has literally re-wired itself to wake up on time, before my alarm.I never thought I'd be a morning person. Now, I wake up feeling rested and refreshed. It's really cool!
