Each year millions of people tackle the annual ritual. Yes, some will succeed. Sadly, more will stumble. Here’s another secret to making New Year’s resolution a success. Make commitments with friends and family.


I wonder "tackle the annual ritual"

I think the annual ritual is New Year's resolution.

What does "tackle" mean?

Is it overcome? or struggle?

    Tackle is often used by sports-minded English speakers to describe a difficult undertaking. It is taken as a description from football where one who tackles another is likely to feel hurt as much as the one who is tackled.
