Does Vocalizing Goals Up Your Chances of Following Through?

There are few qualities that bother me more than people who are all talk. But according to a study from New York University (and reported in the September issue of Shape), it could be the talking that's preventing those people from accomplishing the goals they gab about. It says that people who talk about an ambition may be less likely to follow-through with it.

The finding surprised me, because personally, I'm just the opposite. Does vocalizing your goals improve your chances of accomplishing them?
