The 11 Things That Blow Up My Goals!

December 30th, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Ahhh, it’s that time of year again!  The old year is winding down.  It’s time to think of the new year ahead.  I get very itchy this time of year to sit down and evaluate my previous year and write my goals for coming year.

I know I’m not the only strange beast out there with this type of thought process.  I know many people are contemplating their New Year’s resolutions and goals.

There have been years, where I set my goals, and then one month, or less, into my goal period I fall flat.  My great intentions are as deflated as a balloon trapped in a cold car. I am down for the count, frustrated and wondering if there is anything to this goal setting crap!  Have you ever this way?

Here are 11 reasons why I have given up on my goals in the past.

1.   Disbelief that I can achieve it
2.   Setting goals for some other person’s dream
3.   Feeling unworthy of the outcome
4.   Lack of clarity
5.   Lack of self discipline
6.   Lack of desire
7.   Procrastination
8.   Unorganized
9.   Uncertainty
10.  Letting discouragement have its way with me
11.  Goal outcome doesn’t stir my passion

I have learned many things over the years.  I know that goal setting isn’t a once a year event.  It is a process of evaluation and resetting.

I have developed a better system for setting goal.

I am not as hard on myself if I have set backs.  I have to admit, I’m still working on this one.

I read them every day.  I celebrate the successes when they happen which feeds my belief in myself.

I set ones I must stretch and grow to meet.

Goals are action steps to take, which brings our vision for our lives to fruition. They are our ally and our friend.  They should be looked at with focus, determination, humor, and forgiveness.

After all, success is a journey and our goals are the lamp posts which light our way.

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Excellent work!
