If breaking resolutions is too hard to avoid, start off this year strong with these motivational New Year quotes.

New Year, new start.

Whether you are satisfied with your achievements this year or want to set goals for next year, New Year is the right time to make resolutions.

However, if you are fed up with making resolutions that you don’t keep up with, you are not alone.

Researchers from the University of Scranton found from studies that only 64% of those who made New Year resolutions successfully stuck to them in a month. But the number dropped to 46% after six months.

In other words, less than half of us make it through the first half of the year.

So this year, to start off the next 365 days strong, here are some motivational quotes for the New Year.
