Two months have passed since the start of the New Year when intentions were high.

Almost 50% of Americans make New Years’ resolutions annually. But for all the good intentions, only a fraction of us keep our resolutions; University of Scranton research suggests that just 8% of people achieve their New Year's goals.

Ever wondered why your New Years’ resolutions fail?
