One of the most common reasons for failure is unrealistic expectations. For example, perhaps you only allocated $25 a month for food because you thought you could live solely off of Ramen noodles and rice. A few days of doing this diet probably told you that this is not sustainable. Take a good look at things that you have not been able to achieve on a regular basis, and examine if you honestly believe you can achieve them in the future. If you don’t believe you can, make changes and set new benchmarks that are more doable. Don't forget about the importance of spending less than you earn and saving. If you increase some expenses and are facing a budgetary shortfall, look for other expenses that you can reduce.
