Why Setting Goals Do Not Work
Your entire life, you hear people say, “You have to set goals for yourself.” I have said it and I know you have too. What nobody told us is goals don’t work. Do you know why goals don’t work? I am going to tell you and you will be saying to yourself, “I didn’t really think about that.” When you set goals for yourself, you are leaving yourself open. There are too many distractions out there to pull us
away from what we really want. If you are trying to get the hot girl sitting at the end of the bar, how many people are there between you and her? If you are trying to score a touchdown, how many people and how much yardage is between you and the end zone? If you are trying to make $10,000, how many people do you have to talk to or how much do you have to sell? Just saying you want to do something is not enough to get you where you want to be.
Good Opinions Always Lose Sight of where you originally want to be.
I love the outdoors, so I am going to use this as an example. If you are shooting an arrow at an archery range, you would try for the bulls-eye. You may not hit it on your first shot, but you will see how high or low you are and can adjust your shot however you need to. Not every shot will be straight. You may find the arrow goes a little sideways or may just flop up and down as it goes down range. You know you need to relax and control your breathing to correct whatever the issue is. It doesn’t matter what the problem is. Your arrow will always go down range and hit your target. It will not stop to talk to the arrows next to it or take a nap. It will never stop until it hits the target.
So whatever you are trying for, do not stop until you hit your target. You may need to make a few adjustments to get to the bulls-eye, but if you keep at it, you will always hit your target. I hope I have helped you understand why goals don’t work a little better.
