The 3 Reason We Fail To Succeed.
By: Jackson M Stone
As a coach, I have had the extreme privilege of watching my clients cross the finish line in a burst of glory. This is a great feeling. On the flip side, I have also sat in the dug-out and watched clients miss the goal by a mile. What is the difference? Why do some people succeed at goals where others fail? Why do we succeed at some things and miss fail miserably at other things in life? I do not claim to have all the answers, but here are some common threads I have observed.
Where many people fall short I find is that they are not connected to their goal. What I mean is that they don’t really have a good enough reason to achieve it. For example, if your goal is to earn 1 million dollars, that is great but why do you want to earn 1 million dollars? What will change as a result of you earning this money? To achieve anything worthy you need to have a strong reason why to keep you motivated to follow through.
Make sure the goal you are striving for is something you want to achieve and not just something someone else told you to do. For example if you are trying to lose weight to make your spouse happy you will most likely not have the strength and motivation to follow through when the times get tough, which they usually do.
If a goal is too big it may start to feel impossible. Let’s take the $1 Million goal again, and let us assume that you are starting at zero dollars. That is a pretty big leap; not impossible, but big. So, what is the first step you could take to get there? For a start up company, it is the first client, and then the second, the third and so on. Remember the famous saying by Confucius “A journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step.” Don’t make the goal so big that you feel like you cannot take the first step.
So, set quantifiable goals; know why they are really important to you; be specific; map out your route; identify benchmarks; and tell the world! Here is to your success.
