4 reasons why you are not achieving your goals

4 reasons why you are not achieving your goals

Are you making progress? In this article I’m going to give you 4 reasons why you fail to achieve your goals and hopefully by the end of this article you will be able to make the necessary adjustments.

1) You have too many goals

How many goals do you have? Having too many goals is one of the most common mistakes that people do. When you try to aim at too many targets as the same time you end up hitting none of them.

Look at your current list of goals; what are the two or three main goals that you absolutely want to achieve?

To achieve your goals I highly recommend you to focus on the 1 or 2 area(s) of your life in which you really want to make significant changes. Identify the one or two main goals that will have the maximum impact in these areas before moving to any other areas of your life.

Main areas include your career, your health, your relationships, your personal growth and your finance. You should spend the majority of your time working on these goals because they will have the biggest impact on your life.

What are the areas of your life you really want to focus on right now?

2) You are not obsessed with your goals

Let me guess: the only time you set goals is at the beginning of each year as part of your so-called New Year resolutions, but you quickly forget your resolutions a few weeks later.

Let’s be honest, how truly committed are you to achieve your goals? How often do you look at your list of goals?

Here some of the things I personally do to ensure I stay on track with my goals:

  • I look at my goals every single morning and read them out loud 2 or 3 times
  • I’m constantly thinking about them throughout the day.
  • I make my goals a must. Not achieving them is a big deal
  • I keep talking about them with my friends or other people I meet in order to increase my commitment to them

What about you? How obsessed are you with your goals? Read more
