We all will experience times when we are challenged, busy, or struggling to meet our goals no matter how hard we work on them. Here are three common mistakes we make when working to achieve our goals. Just knowing them, awareness, is the first step to overcoming them.
1) Failure to Get Back on Track
We all fall off the wagon every now and again, we are human. Just remember to pick yourself up and keep on it. Getting off track doesn't mean you have to start over or you've failed completely. Do your affirmations, revisit the goals, set new sub-goals and push forward.
2) Not Making Your Goals a Priority
Priority setting is so critical to achieving goals. This is where so many people fail. If you never set one task or goal as a priority you will spread yourself too thin. If you aren't really committing most of your energy to the top priority item you are setting yourself up for failure.
3) Being Unwilling to adjust
The great things about your goals is exactly that, they are your goals. Yes you can change and adjust them as you go. The only reason we set a goal in the first place is to accomplish something important to us, so if it is no longer important, then change it!
So keep at it, make your goals your priority, adjust as needed and get yourself back on track if you slip. You will get there!
