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....

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, April 20, 3:35 AM

This is an important aritcle which will help you learn to achieve your goals by first addressing the obstacles that prevent you from doing so. The first obstacle is the baggage of considerations that you carry on your shoulders, including negative thoughts that kill initiative at the outset. The second obstacle is formed of your fears, the fear of failure, the fear of stepping out of one's comfort zone, and the third obstacle is formed of roadblocks. Roadblocks unlike the first two are not mental obstacles, rather they are external obstacles like for example your flight getting delayed, or  an important employee leaving the organisation midway! Well there are ways of getting around roadblocks and these include having a plan B or plan C, planning for the unexpected, and anyway having a positive attitude might help you surmount even the toughest roadblocks that fate may throw upon you!

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.
