Achieving your goals should be easy right? Wrong... Achieving worthwhile goals will stretch you and you will grow as a person. So how do you get out of your own way?
This week, we are discussing:

Goals to success

How we stop ourselves.

We are fast approaching Christmas and that also means the end of another year.  If you made any New Year’s resolutions this year how are those coming along? If you’re like most people out there, you might find that those goals you set in January are starting to get replaced by excuses or maybe even a sense of defeat.
So why don’t people achieve their goals? What keeps them stuck, unable to lose weight, make more money, find true, or do the hundred other things they have listed as goals. Here are the 4 things that keep most people from reaching their goals.

Many goals are disguised as wishes. You wish for more friends, more money, a lower number on the scales but don’t actually know what it would take to achieve it. One thing you can do the get clear is ask some questions about how to do that thing. For example:-
How will I know that I have achieved my goal?
What will my days look like when I have enough money?
What do I do with my time?
Who do I spend time with?

Many people want to achieve things but have no plan of how to do it. Find someone you can model your behaviour on. If it’s weight loss, who do you know who has lost weight. Ask them how they did it. If it is financial security you want, read books, talk to successful people, and learn how money works. If you have no idea of how to achieve the goal, your chances of achieving it are very minimal.

Surround yourself with things, people and places that will help you achieve your goal. If you are hanging out with people who tell you why it can’t be done, chances are you will give yourself some excuses too. Those who achieve great things, generally put themselves in the right place at the right time. Want to meet a new love? Get out there and just meet people. Want to make more money? Take a second job and put the money away. Those who achieve their goals do what others won’t so they can have what others can’t.

Many of your goals will be things that are just beyond your reach right now. Great goals will force you to grow as a person. If you want to improve your lot in life, you must do a little more than what you do now. Be prepared for your limiting beliefs to kick in when you do this. Growth is not always comfortable. Be comfortable with being uncomfortable. 

So have a look back at your goals from the year. Have you achieved them? If not why not? Maybe the answer is somewhere in here.
