Not sure if you’re a big goal setter or not? Some people are. Some people aren’t.
But if you are, below may be the number one reason you may not reach your goals in 2019. And I think the reason may suprise you.
What I’ve found in my own life, as well as after coaching hundreds of other individuals, is that there are many reasons we don’t fulfill our goals.
Procrastination. Lack of a clear plan. Lack of a reasonable step by step process.
No due date assigned to the goal. Weak personal disciplines. We get distracted.
Daily life overwhelms us. Inadequate time management…and a score of other reasons.
The Biggest Reason
However, one of the biggest reasons people (including myself) don’t fulfill their goals, may surprise you.
It’s often because we don’t solicit a partner, a coach, a counselor, a trainer or someone … to walk with us and work with us as we pursue our goals.
Here’s What The Research Shows:
According to research done by Dr. Gail Matthews of the Dominican University of California,
If a person has a goal but they don’t write it down – it’s just a goal rolling around in their head – the chances of that person reaching that goal is only 15 to 20 percent.
If a person writes the goal down and keeps it in a place where they can regularly see and review it, the chances of that person reaching that goal increases to 30 to 40 percent.
BUT, if a person has someone working with them to reach that goal –a jogging buddy, a health coach, a work-out trainer, friends dieting together, a personal growth coaching, etc. – then the success rate of that person reaching that goal increases 70 to 80 percent.
So in essence, if you’re serious about reaching your goals in 2019, then having someone encourage you, give you ideas, hold you accountable, motivate you, instruct and inspire you, as you pursue that goal – is essential.
If I can help you reach your goals in 2019, I’d be honored. Below are two specific ways I can help:
