Does Goal Setting Need To Be Complicated?

Apr 10, 2008
Everywhere in personal development books, seminars, and tape programs, you will find something mentioned on goal setting. In seminars countless people go and seminar after seminar, still have no progress to there goals. Does setting goals need to be so complicated?

In personal development we see these countless references to goal setting, and its importance. We understand why, after all without a vision, without a destination, how could we ever get there?

Seminars like in life, has similar principles. 20% are the movers and shakers, while the others are placid, and unmoving. In the seminar this rule holds true, however, on slightly different scales. Everyone in the seminar wants to achieve something, become something, do something, but 20% of the people in the seminar are the ones that are making the money, are achieving the success, are living the life of there dreams.

Time and time again, I see many people who goal set, seminar after seminar, new goals are brought out, and step 1 is found again. I realized this after many goal setting programs. I realized that you must be committed to that 1 goal or 2 or 3 goals perhaps, but you must stick with it or we find ourselves as the majority of the mediocrity we often find in society.

You can break out; you set goals and stick with them, until they are achieved. However, it is not as easy as that. Why does goal setting need to be so complicated! After all we are talking about my whole life. At this point, the procrastination factor kicks in, and we refuse to take action. After all it is planning the next decade, deciding on a meal is hard enough!

It does not have to be complicated. You have gone through life, and had many lessons, I am sure. Now, you must have an idea of what you like and what you don't like. Goal setting and the process of setting goals should be streamlined, an easy process. The beginning may be hard. When you start you may want to give time to think about it, but this can work to your detriment.

A look at extraordinary good leaders shows us two things; the first is there ability to make quick decisions, and the ability to stick with those decisions in the presence of adversity. It takes time to achieve our goals, at least worthy goals and ideals.

Procrastination now leads to old man procrastination, and if you are reading this, I know that is definitely not a place you want to head to. However, with all the people in the seminars doing exactly that, there is no room to see the fruits that the speaker speaks about.

There is an ideal you, living life how you could only dream of. This person is living an extraordinary life of bliss, achieving goals, and ticking of there dream life to do's. All you need to do is find that person. What does he or she look like? Now begin setting goals, and more importantly take consistent action now.
