Top 10 Reasons Why People Don’t Reach Their Goals In Life by chrischukstony(m): 7:51am On Jul 04, 2021
I read this in a pdf and I decide to share it with my readers. You will surely enjoy it.

With everything that happens around us, it is sometimes difficult to reach our goals. This is compounded if you have any of the reasons on the list below.

Luckily, in addition to the top 10 reasons why people don’t reach their goals, I’ve included a quick fix for each of them. So let’s get to it.



1. Creating Vague Goals

When you don’t know where you are going, it is really hard to get there. Many
people set themselves up for failure when they set goals that are unclear. “I
want to lose weight” sounds like a great goal but the people who set this kind
of goal will never reach it. It is not because the people are not motivated or
disciplined but because the goal is too general. Do you want to lose 5 lbs or 50
lbs?

Quick Fix: Set SMART goals by being Specific, making sure they are
Measurable, Achievable and Realistic, and last but not least — give yourself a
Time deadline.



2. Lacking a Higher Purpose

Goals can be set on any topic imaginable but if you don’t have a higher
purpose, it makes it is easy to give up once the initial motivation and
excitement wears off. Understanding how your goal is relevant to you allows
you to persevere even when the going gets tough.

Quick Fix: When setting your SMART goal, ask yourself how the goal is
relevant to your life and what you want to achieve.



3. Procrastinating

Even when you have SMART goals that are relevant to your purpose, if you
don’t get started, you’ll never achieve your goal. One of the most dangerous
phrases is “I’ll do it later.”


Quick Fix: Make sure the goal has been broken down into manageable pieces
and then start right away.



4. Not Taking Responsibility

Things will go wrong. That’s a fact of life. When something comes up and you
don’t achieve your goal, who do you blame? Your boss who kept you at work
late so you couldn’t work on your book or maybe the horrible weather that
stopped you from going to the gym. If it’s not your fault, there is nothing you
can do, right?

Quick Fix: Own up to not reaching your goals. When you take responsibility,
you’ll become resourceful knowing that you have control over the attainment
of your goals.



5. Listening to People Who Discourage You

When you go for your goals, especially the big ones that really count and fit in
with your purpose in life, it is inevitable that people will discourage you.
There are many reasons for this: concern, jealousy, ignorance, etc. How many
goals have already been given up on because other people decided they were
not worth pursuing?

Quick Fix: This one is easy. As long as you know the purpose for your goal,
ignore the naysayers. You can take what they are saying into consideration
but make sure you make the final choice.
