The main reason people don't follow up on their New Year's resolutions, is because they don't change their behavior from an identity level.
Suppose you want to quit smoking, instead of trying to quit the behavior smoking, it is much more powerful to start envision yourself as a non-smoker.
Once you get the future identity integrated, the behavior change is a peace of cake.
Couple of great questions to consider:
1 Why does this goal matter?
2 How does the movie scene with my future self look like?
