It’s pretty common to hear people, especially on social media, broadcast their goals in life. They want to be “this” and “that.” They’ll be big superstars by the time they turn 25, or they’ll be millionaires by 30, and so on.
For the most part, these goals are mere posturing. They’re not actually going to achieve their goals. Sure, they’re probably going to start drafting a plan on how exactly they’re going to conquer their goals, but they’re still going to fail big time.
The #1 reason why people fail to achieve goals is that they’re not making the right kind of goals. They’re only making vague goals.
Ask them the specifics of their goal, and they won’t have a solid answer. They just want to become rich, they just want to be happy, they want to become financially free. But they don’t know exactly when that’s going to happen. If you ask them, they’ll probably say “whenever.”
Another reason is that most people are all talk, and no action. They’ll share their goals with everyone, but when it comes to taking action, they’ll bolt.
Even if they have a smart goal in place, they’ll still lack that motivation to actually do something to achieve that goal. They’ll find it too hard or too difficult. Suddenly, they’ll be too busy working on something else and won’t have time to work on their goals.
The third reason is people simply can’t commit. They probably think someone else is going to help them achieve their goals! But that’s their goal, right?
Or, maybe they’ve got a few hundred big goals they’re working on (small goals toward a single big goal is different) and they don’t know which goal they’re going to pursue today.
They can’t make up their minds. They can’t even be bothered to figure out which goal appeals most to them, they’re just putting everything out there, hoping someday something will come to life!
Lastly, many people don’t know how to deal with failure. They encounter failure for the first time, and they tuck their tails in and hide away somewhere, never to be seen again.
The right approach when dealing with failure is to learn from it. It’s okay to feel hurt, to feel disappointed in yourself. But don’t let that be the reason you no longer want to move forward with your goals.
Have you heard that you’re 97% more likely to achieve your goals if you write
The truth is that goal setting is important. In fact, it’s without goal setting you
may never achieve the dreams of your heart.
Every person in the world devotes countless hours to thinking of their future
and their present situation in life. Almost everyone wishes that there was
something that they could change in their life.
Whether you dream of a new car, a boat, or even to be a movie star, goal
setting is the important catalyst to your success. So let’s get started because in
this audio you will learn the fundamentals of goal setting, which begins with -
how to choose the RIGHT goals to focus on.
Many of us are great at trying to set goals; most of us are practically incapable
of following through with them. Think about it. How many times have you
decided on a course of action and simply didn’t follow through with it?
That is pretty much the norm for most people. Sometimes even setting goals at
all is the harder part of accomplishing any. The easiest way of looking at this is
to think of each and every New Year.
What is the biggest topic of conversation every year on New Year’s Eve? It is
actually the resolutions. But most us will only keep our resolutions for a short
time. With each passing day and week, fewer and fewer of us STICK to our
plans and our goals!
Sometimes setting goals alone is not the only problem that you must face.
Sometimes, choosing the right goals to begin with is harder. Basically, you can
choose to work any goal that you feel is necessary for your health, stability and
Goal setting is nothing more than a formal process for personal planning. By
setting goals on a routine basis you decide what you want to achieve, and then
move in a step-by-step manner towards the achievement of these goals
The process of setting goals and targets allows you to choose where you want
to go in life. By knowing exactly what you want to achieve, you know what you
have to concentrate on to do it.
Goal setting is a standard technique used by professional athletes, successful
business people and high achievers in all fields. It gives you long-term vision
and provides you with short-term motivation.
It helps to focus your attention and knowledge, which helps you to organize
your resources. By setting sharp and clearly defined goals, you can measure
and take pride in the achievement of those goals. You can see forward
progress in what might previously have seemed a long pointless effort.
By setting goals, you will also raise your self-confidence, as you recognize your
ability to meet the goals that you have set. The process of achieving goals and seeing this achievement gives you confidence that you will be able to achieve
higher and more difficult goals later on.
Goals are set on a number of different levels.
In the first place, you decide what you want to do with your life and
what large-scale goals you want to achieve.
Second, you break these down into the smaller aims that you must hit so that
you reach your overall lifetime goals. Finally, once you have your plan, you
start working towards achieving it.
