Top goal setting mistakes
What are the top goal setting mistakes that people make?
Whether we want to achieve healthy relationship, improve our health, achieve inner peace, we start creating goals that will help fulfill our super-objective and vision in life.
Goal setting helps to improve and enhance our relationships, health, happiness, career, and business according to various studies. Unfortunately, the majority of people fail to achieve their goals in life due to many various reasons.
Top goal setting mistakes
This is a big one! Whenever we want to achieve something, we usually want it now, not tomorrow or the day after. If we don’t see immediate results or signs that we are getting closer to our goals and vision, we tend to give up.
One of the best ways to combat impatience is to develop a plan and not to expect immediate results due to the fact that many of us give up right when we are about to reach what we dream of having.
Lack of motivation
Lack of motivation is a major reason why people fail to achieve their desires in life. Usually if a goal is too hard to achieve, people tend to lose their motivation quickly.
One of the best ways to increase motivation is to look at the end result. When you keep focusing at the benefits you will achieve in the long run, you are more likely to get out of your comfort zone, do whatever it takes, and stay motivated.
Fear is what keeps most people stuck where they are. Whenever we want to accomplish something, we start asking ourselves questions such as:
- What if I try and fail?
- What if I don’t do well?
- What if I don’t accomplish what I want?
I’m not going to tell you that everything is going to be perfect and you won’t face any obstacles on your way, but if you don’t face your fear and stay in your comfort zone, you will not be able to move forward and reach your goals.
Remember, the only way not to make any goal setting mistakes is to not try at all.
Next time when you set a goal and fear you will fail, go ahead and do it any way. You will then find your fears have no basis.
Not setting time to visualize your goals
Let’s face it, if you don’t use visualization to help you program your subconscious mind with what you want to achieve, it is likely that you won’t reach your goals.
Visualization is my personal favorite method to use to help me focus on what I want in life. It is also one of the best methods used to raise your vibration and increase your energy as I discussed in my book “the ultimate guide to achieve your goals.” When your energy is high, you will be more inclined to keep going until you achieve your dreams.
Not setting clear goals
Some folks tend to think in general such as “I want to be rich” “I want to lose a lot of weight” “I want to travel every where.” These statements however are not specific.
Your goal has to be specific and should be in the present tense such as “I want to make 10,000 a month” “I want to travel to Greece” “I want to lose 10 pounds in three months” and so on…
Having clear goal helps your subconscious mind understand the message you are trying to send and it helps you know when you get there.
Among the top setting goal mistakes that people make is the fact that everything has to be perfect before you start taking a step towards your goal. If you believe in this concept, then let me tell you that your goal is not reach perfectionism; your goal should be to reach excellence, which is very different than perfectionism.
In my previous post “How to stop being a perfectionist?” I mentioned how seeking perfectionism is a major cause for worry and anxiety and it can have a negative impact on reaching your vision.
Remember that the process to success is a “ziz-zag” journey as discussed by my friend, the master Rob White.
Now that you are aware of the top goal setting mistakes people tend to make, you can start making changes in your daily routine, so you can avoid all of these pointers.
