Have you been setting goals to no avail? If so, keep reading. Below we’re going to discuss the most common complaints about setting goals and how you can work around them. Trust us when we say you’ll be surprised to learn just how many myths there are about goal setting. Learn the truth below:
The Three Most Common Complaints about Setting Goals
Complaint One: My Past Prevents Me from Attaining My Goal
One of the biggest complaints we see about goal setting is the past interfering with success. If you’ve had an event or tragedy in your past that you feel is preventing you from attaining your goal, you’re not alone. That being said, there are a number of reasons why this is bunk.
Your past should never interfere with your future goals. If you’ve failed in the past, there is no reason to think you’ll continue to fail in the future. Not being able to succeed and not succeed are two very different things. Sometimes all you have to do is change your mindset to change your world.
Complaint Two: I Don’t Want to Fail
Some people shun failure like the plague. It’s human nature to want to win at all costs, and for some people, the risk of failing prevents them from trying at all. If this sounds like you, you should know that this complaint is also bunk.
If your complaint about goal setting is the fear of failure of falling short, you need to change your outlook. Trying at all is considered a win and falling short gives you a measurable benchmark for when you try again. Change the way you think about the work fail, and you may just achieve your goals after all.
Complaint Three: Goals Should Be Quickly Attainable
It’s not uncommon for people to complain that goal setting should begin with goals that are able to be obtained quickly. Some people believe you need easy goals in order to stay motivated. That being said, this too is a complaint that is bunk.
Goals are not the same as a checklist or a to-do list. If you want the endorphin-high of completing easy tasks we recommend a daily to-do list. However, if you want the true satisfaction of achieving a goal, you’ll want to set an honest goal that you can work toward.
Complaint Four: I Can’t Find the Motivation
Motivation can get in the way of achieving goals. Lack of motivation can strike anyone at almost anytime and is a major complaint about people trying to succeed. If you are lacking motivation, there are some easy steps you can take to re-inspire yourself again.
If your goals feel too far out of reach just know that every step forward, every thought, every action you take gets you one step closer. You may not always
be able to see the progress but know that putting in the effort is what will help you get that much closer to achieving your goal.
Ready for Success?
Now that you know the three biggest complaints about setting and achieving goals you can forget about using these excuses. Just remember that your past doesn’t dictate the future and if you don’t succeed the first time it’s just another stepping stone in your journey toward success.
