Here's the main reason why most people never obtain they're goals; #1 is they never really know How To properly set goals, and #2 is they don't understand the principles of getting your goals.
There are only 3 factors you need to focus upon when getting what you want. And BTW, these are the exact same factors EVERYONE goes through to get anything we set our mind upon; from brushing your teeth, going to the grocery store, to launching a new career, it's all the same strategy. We inherently: #1 - Get Clear, #2 - Get a Plan, #3 - Get Motivated. That's it! Think about it. When-ever you want something you get a REAL CLEAR picture and sense of what it will give you. You devise up some type of plan to go after it, and then you drum up the courage and motivation to GO GET IT! Yes? Seriously, think about this simple act of doing anything in your life and apply these things factors to it. We all do this!
Now, here's comes the challenge. When it comes to SIMPLE things you want such as clean teeth, filling your stomach, or enjoying the satisfaction of a sporting event, we move towards these goals with effortless abandonment. WE DON'T WORRY about the feeling of that come-along with getting them. But when it comes to the bigger things; asking someone out, getting physically fit, or trying a big ticket item; car or a home, we lose or minds! There are all these negative feelings that come along with them, right?
Understand that they are there on the little things too but we don't give them much juice! It's this ONE THING that holds most people back from getting everything they want. They can't control the negative states of mind that arise and they don't know how to over-come them when they do, make sense?
So with this new found knowledge of the PROCESS of what your mind goes through you can now learn to control your feelings and make them work for you now! To do this just get enough emotional leverage upon yourself; ask "WHY do I want this and want will this give me? " The more reasons WHY and the bigger reasons they will give you will push you over the edge to move towards it.
