CE#673: 12 Ways To Fail In Goal Setting (Business Insider)

Do you have something you really want to have in your life?

Is there an ultimate thing that would make you the happiest person in the world?

I think we all have at least one thing we badly want to get.

It could be popularity, power, friends, love, money, lasting marriage, children, or health.

But unfortunately, not all of us successfully obtain even just that one thing though we may live up to 85 years.

Why?

Well, it is simply because most people do not set goals.

However, even if we do, it does not guarantee achievement and success. You have to do things the right way.

You need to pay the price. Anything great necessitates hard work.

But in this article, we will discuss the not-so ideal things that make you fail and not reach your goals.

Setting goals that are too big. Goals bigger than you may just leave you exhausted but not victorious. Goals that are too big are those beyond your skills, knowledge, and capabilities, or even beyond your control and influence. You need to assess yourself, the things you know, the things you are good at and base your goals from them. Measure your capabilities. Do not set goals that seem impossible to achieve.

Setting goals that are too small. Setting goals that are too small does not challenge you enough which consequently makes you think those goals are not worth pursuing. Make sure your goals are not too easy otherwise you will not feel a sense of fulfillment and not be proud of reaching them.

Setting goals that are vague. Describe your goals. Be specific. Do not settle with goals that are too general. Detailed goals make you half-way there since they create a map for your subconscious mind; and you just need follow that map. This also helps you achieve your goals significantly easier and faster.
