The firm believes that if people are setting goals but aren’t making progress, they need to analyse and change their approach. Here the company outlines the seven main reasons why people commonly aren’t reaching their goals.
1 - It’s not what you actually want. If the goal is not right for the person, then achieving it won’t make them any happier. It is important to be clear about what you want and then set appropriate goals to resonate with this.
2 - They’re not specific enough. It is important to break the big goal down into small goals that are more manageable. By achieving the smaller goals, an individual is closer to reaching the larger goal.
3 - You don’t have a deadline. Goals must be timely; people’s minds work much more efficiently when there is a deadline.
4 - Too many distractions. A person needs time to focus on a goal long enough to be able to turn it into a reality. This is hard to do with everyday distractions, to it is important to remove these.
5 - Not being consistent. Consistency is the key to progress; it is important to keep working on your goals every day to see them turn into a reality.
6 - You listen to the naysayers. It’s okay for other people to have different goals than you. Be ruthless with your goals and stick to them.
7 - Always remember your ‘why’. It is vital to remember the reason why you are doing this and why you want to achieve the goal.
"Most people use the end of the year to look back and reflect on their life and the goals that they have and haven't achieved and then use it as the perfect time to set new goals and plans of action for the new year ahead," explained Will Ross from Privilege Promotions. "Most people find it hard to stick to goals and new year’s resolutions, which is why goals need to be specific and achievable. If they aren’t, then a person is more likely to give up," added the Mr Ross.
