Important Considerations When Setting Goals

Jun 7, 2008
Only 55% of goal setters actually achieve there goals. Is there anyway to increase our chances of achieving that set goal? In this article, we will take a look what you can do to take your chance of achieving a goal to 70-80% or more.

There are several key things that you can do to increase your chances of success. I like to do that, especially if I am setting a goal which is likely to take a decade. After all, you don't want to leave this goal to chance, we want certainty.

To create certainty, you have to go to the root of that goal. Why are you selecting this goal? You will find that people will set a goal of becoming a millionaire. The motivation was television or some external desire, and this means the goal likely will not be achieved.

To achieve a goal requires that you take the time to consider why you want the goal achieved in your life. A person who is homeless or very poor with no money is likely to achieve huge success. They promise themselves to change, and they do. Some of the most successful people have literally gone from rags to riches.

Another way to achieve success with your goal setting is to write it down. Simply writing a goal down makes it one which is more likely to be achieved. We are talking about a 1% chance to a 55% chance, simply by writing your goal down.

Time is an important factor. The time you spend looking at your goal is crucial. A goal looked at once and never looked at again is unlikely to be achieved, unless there is a very strong desire, deep down inside you, to achieve that goal.

Some goal setters will try to write lots of goals, however, this is not best. The best way is by sticking to 1 to 3 goals at max. And if you are new to goal setting, and don't know much about how to goal set, then stick with 1 goal, until you learn the ins and outs of goal setting.

Clarity is another important aspect of goal setting. Often people will set goals to achieve a goal and leave it very loose in terms. It is not properly formulated and hard to achieve. Your mind simply can't understand what you want.

However, simply writing a goal down does not do much difference to the achievement. There is more to do with setting goals. If you truly want this goal manifest in your life, then the most important way to go about writing your goal is to be clear. So many people will wish, so many people will say I want to be rich, I want to be healthy, I want a Yacht, but so few will do the most important step - formulate, clarify, and write it down.
