Common Roadblocks That Come In The Way Of Your Goals

There is still a way! (2)

The fear of failure is one of the worst fears for you to allow taking over your mind.

“If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.” –Michael Jordan

Though it is so blatantly obvious that if you stay true to a goal for long, you will ultimately achieve it, few people have the tenacity to chase their goals in the face of these most common and daunting roadblocks. If you care enough to follow the lives of some of the most successful people in the history of mankind across of all fields, there is a definite pattern, and it goes beyond them innately gifted and fortunate. They are all consistent in dealing with the roadblocks that come in the way of their goals, and go showing up and getting about their task. They have fought distraction, procrastination, imperfection and much more to reach the echelons of their glory.

Do what Needs to Be Done Today

Procrastination can bog you down like few other things, can distract you from your long term objectives. You’re not just prolonging the realization of your goals but also slowly but surely killing the intrinsic and extrinsic motivation to chase the goals.

You are less likely to be as excited about your goals if you are constantly putting things off, you are not getting the short term results that are going to effectively propel you towards your long term goals. This non-fulfillment of immediate goals means in the long haul you won’t get the desired results, and will be stuck for sufficient motivation, while completely losing track along the way. If you’re goal oriented, you will never put things off for later, and be pumped up about achieving step by results quickly and efficiently.

Bad Habits can be Huge Goal Spoilers

Even a seemingly harmless bad habit of being ineffective at time management or being too distracted easily can divorce you from your goals. Time management junkies achieve much more in terms of tasks, and results than the flaky who are constantly distracted. Focus and sticking to tasks at hand that are priority can minimize the tendency to drain energy on wasteful things and channelize it correctly.

I come to understand that roadblocks can be used as building blocks.

Purpose Is What Give Life Meaning

Purpose for a purpose! (2)

“If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” -Jim Rohn

I hope you have start this year with a purpose for a purpose. Also, I hope you have set your fair share of goals because it’s important.  You may have heard, if it is just in your head it is a wish. It’s time to go past the wishing!

One recent study, conducted by Ivy League, clearly showed that only 3 percent of the current population in the US set goals. What’s surprising is that among the 3 percent, we have the wealthiest and the most auspicious people in the country. That goes a long way into proving that goal setting and success are firmly joined at the hip.

“Begin with the end in mind.” -Stephen Covey

For one, setting goals lets you take the driver’s sit. Meaning, it gives you power to transform your life entirely, as well as take your company or business into a promising future. That being said, here are the 4 key reasons goal setting is believed to be so important for personal development and business success.

  1. Goal setting creates clarity 

As Bill Copeland adeptly puts it, anyone without a goal in life, even if they’re busy spending their life running around, always ends up with nothing achieved. You spend a lot of time doing a lot of things, but in the real sense, only a small fraction of what you do brings forth progress or contribute to a better you if not your business. In other words, you’re busy fulfilling everyone’s goals using the time that could otherwise been used in chasing your own.

Setting goals creates clarity on what you ultimately want in life. First, it lets you crystallize and articulate the desires that are randomly floating in your mind. That way, you end up channeling your time, effort and energy into things that matter the most to you, hence a more conscious living.

  1. Goal setting gives you a forward momentum

If all your plans and ambitions have been faltering, even before you thought of jump starting them, chances are you aren’t much of a goal setter. If anything, goals represent your inner desires; the desires that should motivate you into achieving anything in life. In other words, you’re connected to your source of motivation that very moment you sit down to put your goals in black and white. That said, the goals you set should serve as a constant reminder of the motivation you had while starting out, which should in turn act as the fuel that gives you a forward drive.

  1. Goals make you accountable

Setting goals makes you accountable. Instead of talking about your dreams and ambitions, yet you’re there sited and doing nothing concrete about them, goals makes you more obligated to take actions. It makes you accountable, not to other people, but to yourself. Speak of which being accountable to your goals can be interpreted to mean staying true to your desires.

  1. Goals allow you to be the best you can be

Unless you have your life motivated with goals, there’s no way you can hit your highest potential. Not by magic. For one, lacking goals subjects you to a default set of actions that keep you locked in your comfort zone. If you take pleasure in time-based contentment, that’s your time to enjoy the fleeting smug. But if you’re interested in growth, then don’t let comfort zones confuse you. You have an auspicious future. And Goals are what keeps you on toes; and every time you hit one objective, there’s always a bigger one in waiting. And the culmination of it is you becoming the best you can ever be.

“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” -T. S. Eliot
