STEP 2: Set Effective Goals – What You Say


“I believe that a person cannot reach his/her full potential without setting and working towards goals. (Notice, I did not say attaining or achieving goals!)

Brian Tracy says that, "we are never truly happy unless we are moving towards something that is important to us." Some of the greatest thinkers and achievers in history, such as Emerson, Thoreau, DaVinci, Napolean Hill, and Dale Carnegie all stress the importance of goal setting in order to live a happy productive life and achieve one’s dreams.”

“What do you think?”

Why Don’t People Set Goals?

Some reasons may be:

1.   Not serious, don’t want to take action.

2.   Don't realize the importance.

3.   Don't know what they want.

4.   Stuck on “The How’s,” needing to figure out exactly how they will achieve it.

5.   Fear of rejection / criticism

6.   Fear of failure. This is one of the greatest single obstacle to success in adult life!

Keeps you in your comfort zone. People don't realize correlation between success and failure. In fact, failure is a prerequisite to success.

“While all of the reasons we discuss play a role, the number one reason why people do not set goals is FEAR.

Fear of failure or of not attaining the goal.

“If you also have this fear, I challenge you to set goals and change your response you do not achieve them. It’s okay if you don’t achieve your goals! A lot of very happy and successful people haven’t achieved their goals. In fact, they’ve probably missed many of their goals. So put the fear of failure aside, set goals that inspire and motivate you, and start moving your life in the direction you want it to go.”

“It’s often by failing to achieve certain goals that we are able to achieve others.”

“Don’t only measure success by the end result, measure the progress you make during the journey.”
