Unfortunately, there’s a reason these resolutions have become synonymous with over-promising and under-delivering — it’s not easy to stay disciplined and achieve your ambitious goals. If it were, we’d all be muscle-bound millionaires with no bad habits. So, it’s beneficial to take some steps to improve your self discipline, thereby improving your emergency preparedness.

The following infographic from CashNetUSA outlines 14 tips which can help you improve your self discipline in 2018. Each tip is supported by scientific research — see the list of sources at the end of the graphic or click here for a list of web links. A full-size version of this graphic can be downloaded here.
