Feel your New Year’s resolution already slipping away from you?

By Alexis Wolfer

What if we told you it wasn’t a lack of willpower to blame, but rather a lack of confidence!

Turns out, in a recent Invisalign® survey, 9 out of 10 women didn’t achieve a New Year’s resolution because they were too afraid to really go for it.

The fact is, our success – both with regard to our New Year’s resolutions as well as our other personal and professional achievements – is largely dependent on how confident we feel, both on the inside and outside.

Feel like you can own the boardroom? You’re far more likely to rock that meeting.

Walking into the gym feeling like Beyoncé? You’re more apt to kill it in that dance class.

Regardless of your resolutions (or, as we prefer to call them, goals,) here are some of the most common New Year’s resolutions – and how you can boost your confidence to ensure success!

You want to up the ante on your workouts? Ditch the stained t-shirts and ratty leggings and buy yourself a workout outfit you feel great in. If you like the way you look walking into the gym you’ll both more likely to actually get to the gym (if for no other reason than to walk by the cute boys lifting weights!) and to work harder once you’re there. It’s a win-win.

You want to eat more healthfully? Sign up for a cooking class! Confidence in your cooking skills will make cooking at home far more fun and more delicious: an easy way to ensure you’re eating as healthfully as possible!

You want to be happier and stress less? Studies show that all you have to do is smile more! Not confident with your smile? Talk with your dentist or orthodontist about Invisalign® clear aligners, the practically invisible way to straighten your teeth so no one even needs to know you’re in treatment. Best part, it treats mild to complex cases, so if you’re not happy with your teeth, get a consult from an Invisalign trained doctor near you. (I did it 3 years ago and it was one of the best things I could have done for my confidence!)

You want to save more money? Give yourself the tools you need to feel more confident in your abilities by downloading a budgeting app or setting your checking account up to automatically move money into your savings account each month.
