Need a few suggestions to stay on track? “It’s exceptionally hard to make life changes,” says Alan Deutschman, author of Change or Die. According to Deutschman, even though most people have the ability to change, they rarely do, “and our efforts are usually doomed to failure when we try to do it on our own.” After the jump, four strategies to avoid failure and increase positive results in change regimens.

My 2009 New Year’s Resolutions

This week, The Frisky will be revealing their oh-so-ambitious resolutions for 2009. We encourage you to submit yours in the comments—maybe you’ll inspire others to adapt the same resolutions and at the very least you’ll get some support. Especially for your resolution to eat more donuts this year. That’s something we can all get behind. Take it away, Annika…

1. Get a driver’s license: I put this on my resolutions list last year, but only achieved part of it. I was born and raised in NYC, so having a car is more of a luxury than a necessity. But now that I’m getting older I want to add a license to my list of accomplishments.
2. Go to Europe: I haven’t been to Europe since I was a little babe. My plan is to reconnect with my cousin in London or my friend in Slovakia, so I can’t use not having a travel companion as an excuse. I also plan to adapt my style to where ever I’m going, so I don’t stick out like a tourist.
3. Pay off my credit card: I’m sick and tired of my credit card debt. And this year, I’ll actually have the means to pay it off in one fell swoop. So I will ignore whatever heels or boots that catch my eye until I’ve paid my debt.

1. Learn How To Do A Banana Split: I used to take gymnastics classes as a kid and I could slide into one like it wasn’t no thang. While it was an impressive skill to show off in 1st grade, I have a feeling now a split will earn me extra sexy time brownie points. As a freelance writer who types all day on my cushy-tushy, this is a stretch for a goal. But I fully intend to do it, or injure myself trying!

Especially for your resolution to eat more donuts this year. That’s something we can all get behind. Catherine is up next…

1. Learn how to cook at least one new dish every month: I eat the same stuff all the freaking time, mostly because I am a picky eater, but also because I know how to make about three dishes. I really need to enhance my repertoire — at least until I can afford to have a personal chef.
2. Learn how to edit video: I don’t want to become the next Sofia Coppola or anything, just be able to clip together little videos of my dog in iMovie. (Confession: This was a resolution for 2008 I never accomplished.)
3. Do some sort of good in the world: I want to start volunteering. If you have suggestions, let me know.
4. Write letters to my grandmother at least once a month: Phone calls are nice, but they just don’t compare to handwritten letters. My grandma has been sick lately, and I want to send her special somethings in the mail so she knows I’m thinking of her. Keep reading »

1. Commit to going to yoga three times a week: And at the very least, getting into headstand. Forearm stand, I will tackle you in 2010. Handstand, see you in 2011.
2. Introduce myself to new music: And go to see more bands play live. I used to love doing this, but have stopped going on a regular basis. And I need some Ladyhawke and Little Joy to balance out all the Beyonce and Britney.
3. Curb bad behaviors: My bad behaviors are drinking too much wine and then eating copious amounts of mac ‘n’ cheese while sending regrettable Facebook messages. Must stop this in 2009. Keep reading »

    The great thing about a new year? You get to make a fresh start. And once the champagne has been finished and the confetti has fallen, it’s time to put those resolutions into action — well, at least for a week or two.

Celebrities from Britney Spears to a duchess (and we don’t mean Fergie) are vowing to make some ch-ch-changes. Here’s who’s doing what and why…

    Britney Spears
    After a helluva year, the pop tart has amazingly landed on her dancing feet, but she says there’s still work to be done. “I would like to stop worrying so much [in 2009],” she told Glamour, “because I worry all the time. And to learn how to be happier, just in general. I have to learn to take things not so seriously. And to stop biting my nails!” Keep reading »

    The Last 31 Days Of 2008: Go Shopping For A Man

    I don’t have any men in my life who need presents — except for my dog, of course — but making a trip to the men’s department is going to make these last few days of frantic shopping bearable. Why? Because there are handsome things to take in, and I’m not talking about what’s for sale. Just look at this model on Steven Alan’s website. After seeing his cute, scruffy face, I feel so much better about having not bought a single present. Keep reading »
