Why Are You Not Achieving Your Goals Successfully?
Is your goal setting making you unhappy?
Have you ever created a goal and got frustrated because of
Are you trapping yourself with your goal setting strategies?
Now is the time to learn better strategies that will take
you straight to success while having fun during the process
of getting there because when you apply this advice you will
A goal is something you want to have or something you want
to change in your life. It is basically a project you can
manage in a smart way so that in the end you'll find yourself
where you wanted to be when you stated your goal, and began
to take steps towards making it happen. But first it starts
out in your mind and adopting better thinking strategies followed
by powerful action actually will ensure your success, which
is what you want… do you not?
Many if not most of the people make New Year's resolutions
and set up goals to quit shortly after that because they feel
unhappy and frustrated. The reason is, they constantly compare
their actual unsatisfying situation with the ideal goal they
want to reach and the only thing they can see is the wide
gap between the two places. You feel unhappy and you end up
spending lots of energy to keep you constantly motivated when
you don't feel like doing anything because it is impossible
to be motivated all the time. And before long you quit!
In other words, if you delay any kind of gratification or
feelings of satisfaction until the ideal goal is completely
achieved, you are actually making sure you will not accomplish
your goal. Some goals can't be achieved over night so the
more you delay the good feelings you think you'll have when
you achieve your final goal, the more difficult it will become
to achieve. It is that simple!
There is another aspect of unsuccessful goal setting, watch
out! If you decide you are a success only and only if you
shed off these 30 pounds or when you are a millionaire, perhaps
when you buy that Mercedes and have it standing in your drive
way, then you are trapped in a place where there is not escape,
as you will be denying yourself any good feelings to keep
going… unless you do it the way I am about to share with you.
If you wanted to cross over a river, you would use a bridge
to walk on until you reach the other side and if you wanted
to grab something that sits on a high shelf you would use
a ladder, so why would accomplishing a goal be any different?
Now, what can you do differently and in the present moment
to ensure your goals will be successfully accomplished and
Pick a goal: what do you want?
It can be anything but let's take the example of a weight
Solution 1: make a power decision. What is the first
thing you will notice when heading towards your goal? What
is the first success? You want to shed off 20 pounds so if
you notice that you shed 2 pounds on your way, congratulate
yourself and keep going. Do more of the things you notice
bring about success.
Build a bridge between where you were when you started and
your final goal. You simply make smaller steps and these little
goals will be easy to achieve. The result will surprise you
because it will lead you straight to your wished big goal.
Keep going and keep rewarding yourself and feeling good about
what you've already achieved while feeling certain that sooner
or later you will be at your final destination!
Solution 2: keep a journal of your progress and successive
successes on the way to your goal. People tend to forget
what they have already achieved and where they were when they
started their journey towards a goal, so by keeping it all
written down you can go back any time and see how far you've
come already and that will keep you on track and highly motivated.
It makes the whole project fun and worth going for.
These two important strategies will show you that you are
a success and that you don't have to wait for any final result
to feel good about it or about yourself. In fact whatever
feelings you think or believe you will have when your goal
has manifested in the real world, start on your way by having
them right now and build your bridge to success from then
What you've learned so far to achieve a goal with success
is this: it is very helpful to have a concrete and easy way
to track your progress. Find a way to make your goal as concrete
as possible and break it down to smaller steps you can accomplish
And to make your goal achievement even easier and more of
a success follow these steps:
- Choose a goal
- Check whether the goal is good for you and will enrich
- Find the resources that will help you achieve your goal:
information, people to help you, advice…
- Prioritize your goal so you keep hitting your target
until you hit it finally
- Track your goal, the progress and success journal will
help you with that
- The freedom to change or even discard your goal if you
don't want it anymore or if it no longer suits you
What now? If you have goals that you've already started
working on, make them easy to track and start your progress
and success journal. Walk the bridge step by successful step,
all the way to your final success!
