It’s the same practice each year. We’re at a party or a gathering of friends, and the question pops up, “So! What is(are) your New Year resolution(s) this year?”.
There’s something about the beginning of a new calendar year that consciously asks us to have a “fresh start” or “set new goals” and achieve them this year. What stopped you from achieving them last year I ask?
If you so wanted to achieve these goals, or fix something that is not right at the present, why don’t you already have it?
The simple, natural, and subconscious reason is, that we don’t really “want” these things to happen for one reason or another.
