Why We Don´t Set Goals
Do you want to permanently change your life?
Do you want to create the life of your dreams?
I would imagine that most of you answered.... YES..... to both of those questions.
Did you know that there are techniques and methods based on solid scientific research to accomplish changes and make them last?
One way to create change in your life is to ask yourself what do I really want = VISION
The create some yearly, monthly, weekly, daily and sometimes even hourly techniques to get
there = GOALS
First we must have a plan. If you want to go somewhere you must have a plan.
If you are going to build a house, you need a blueprint. If you are going to travel to a different city, you must have a map or a GPS. If you are going to go on vacation, you must have a plan.
So why do you think that you don´t need a plan for your life?
People know what they want but they don´t know how to get there.
A lot of people are talking about goals, but very few people set them.
Here are a few reasons people don´t set goals.
1. They don´t know how. It has not been taught in school and therefore people don´t relate to that setting goals is something they need to do.
2. They don´t think that they can accomplish the goals anyhow....so why setting goals. It will be a waste of their time.
3. They might fear ridicule. Friends, family-members, spouses, co-workers will tell them that they will not be able to do it.
4. They have never been around people that has ever had or set goals.
Don´t let this be you!
Since there will be a new year soon, make a commitment to yourself to design your own life.
Start creating some goals.
Get a pen and a piece of paper. Sit down and get your thinking-cap on and go to work.
Here is what I want out of life..........
Make a list of what you want to be, have and do.
Figure out WHY do you want it. The reason you want it.
Be specific and write it down.
Set a deadline for your goals. When will I have this goal accomplished.
