The 3 Things That Stop Most People From Achieving Their Goals

The 3 Things That Stop Most People From Achieving Their Goals | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

How many goals have you set in your life? A hundred? Ten thousand? Even more?

How many of these goals have you actually achieved?

If you're like most people, this second number is going to be a fraction of the first. A big reason is that as soon as you set a goal, three things emerge to stop you. But most of us don't even realize what they are, and as a result, we are just left with our unaccomplished goal and an unshakable feeling of failure.

What if you could not only identify these obstacles but also learn to welcome them? Well, the good new is that you can....

Graeme Reid's curator insight, April 20, 8:54 PM

If you can look for the considerations, fears, and roadblocks and know that they are simply a part of the process, then you can welcome them, face them, process them, and ultimately overcome them.

Jessica Urquhart's curator insight, April 21, 11:15 PM

I have learnt that when dealing with human beings, nothing is set in stone. I like that the writer has taken his own experiences and believes that most people have the same values and beliefs. I feel that there are many factors that get in the way of achieving goals and this is no different to safety culture. In the future I'd like to see businesses understand all the varied types of people that their management systems must adapt to. In history there seems to be only one type of management system and is widely misunderstood by the majority of people within the organisation. Understanding personal values, goals and behaviours should be the foundation of any management system.

Tom Bundick, Ph.D.'s curator insight, May 3, 10:48 AM

Neither autism nor neuro, specifically speaking. Great conceptualization of what gets in our way, though.

How do Leaders Learn to Lead? | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

How do leaders go through the learning process? What are the formative and informative experiences that influence leaders? How do they reflect on events and truly learn from their mistakes and successes? How do they unlearn dysfunctional habits? How do they become more self-aware? Gerard Seijts explored these questions for his recent book, Good Leaders Learn: Lessons From Lifetimes of Leadership. Through 30-plus probing interviews with senior leaders from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors he brings to light lessons on the importance of life-long learning.
