MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Do you make New Year's Resolutions? If so, you are among the 45 percent of Americans who resolve to make a change at the beginning of each year.

According to the University of Scranton's Journal of Clinical Psychology, 38 percent of Americans never make those resolutions, while 17 percent infrequently make them.

Only eight percent succeed in the resolutions they make. According to the Journal, here are the top 10 resolutions Americans are making for 2014:

  1. Lose Weight

  5. Staying Fit and Healthy
  6. Learn Something Exciting
  7. Quit Smoking
  8. Help Others in Their Dreams
  9. Fall in Love
  10. Spend More Time with Family

According to their research, it's easier for someone in their twenties to achieve a goal, at 39 percent, as opposed to people over the ago of 50. Only 14 percent of those over 50 succeed at the resolutions they set.
