Why You Aren’t Achieving Your Goals

When was the last time you achieved a big goal? I’m willing to bet it’s when you had something you really wanted in mind and then created a set of action steps to get you there!

Where I see us get goal setting wrong is stating a big lofty goal into the universe, but then not creating a proper plan to actually get us there.

Next time you set a goal try following up with these three things:

1.

What are the exact steps it will take to get you there?

2.

How will you stay accountable to staying on track?

3.

How will you reset if/when you get off track?

Since I was 21 years old I’ve sat down and created goals for the upcoming year, but for a long time I didn’t achieve most of those goals. One of the biggest reasons why is because I set goals I thought sounded good instead of goals that I actually cared about.

But then I changed how I set goals and started making plans instead. By breaking down those big goals into small daily & monthly action steps, my goals become more achievable! It’s amazing what we can do when we know where we want to go, and then break it down into bite-size pieces! Am I right?!

I’m sure you’ve had your own experience of achieving a big goal, something you really really wanted and somehow you made it happen one small step at a time.

If so, share it with me in the comments below!

Here is one goal we achieved and how we made it happen : Seven years ago we wanted to add a furry lil muffin to our family. At the time we were barely making ends meet and knew it just wasn’t financially possible.

We told ourselves if we could save up enough money for all the additional expenses for the first year, we could get her. We estimated pet bills, and food, shots and of course toys. We saved tip money from Kyle’s job and any spending allowance we didn’t use. It took us a year.

On January 4th 2012, little Sadie Skidmore was born. We picked her up exactly 8 weeks later with a borrowed crate and a bone bigger than her head.

She is #whyiplan.

Goal setting isn’t just about achievement and success, it’s about deciding what matters and making intentional choices so those things actually happen.
