9 obstacles that keep you from achieving your goals

Although you have spent a lot of time working on your goals for next year, there are plenty of things that are preventing them from reaching.

Before we go further, please use the language here. The goals can be divided with goals, goals, achievements, achievements, resolutions, goals, hopes, and everyone else you can think of. For the purpose of this report, the writer will use Objectives.

How often have you started the year or next phase of your development with good intentions and some goals for what you want to accomplish, only to find that somehow you never see them? What I will cover in this article is the 9 biggest obstacles that will be in your way. I'll take each one back and explore what's behind it, why it's there, and more importantly do what you can take to put it on one side.

What I will also do is indicate that this is using a survey survey conducted by Sole Traders and Small and Medium Business Owners (SMEs) who identify the problems they face in the coming year.

While there are probably hundreds of potential barriers, 9 appear most often.

1. Lack of information
2. Lack of skills
3. Limited faith
4. Welfare
5. Other
6. Own motivation
7. Time
8. Money
9. Fear

Why is a goal?
If you need more reason set your own goals, a study conducted by students in the Harvard MBA program in 1979, but only three percent of the graduations had written goals and plans; 13 percent had goals, but they were not written; and 84 percent did not set any markings at all.

Ten years later, it was found that 13 percent of the class whose goals were approaching up to 84 percent compared to those who had not put anything. For three percent, which defined their goals and wrote them down, they were on average ten times higher than the other 97 percent put together.

Some set goals that are too general. These are actually fantasies common to all. The goals, however, are clear, written, specific and measurable.

What is the goal?
Other names used, explore other language usage. Why do we have them? Different types of goals – to / from.

Some goals are called goals. These are usually frames negative. Here are some examples.
o I do not want to smoke anymore
o I do not want to be incompetent
o I do not want to be too heavy
o I do not want to be a trainer

Now let # # 19459004 o I am apt and healthy
o I have an ideal weight
o I can cover my accounts

Notice differences. They are expressed in positive and assuming that you have already achieved it. By doing "as if" the behavior changes so that you work as having already achieved what you wanted to do. It's a great feeling to have even before you've got it. It also promotes your motivation.

Now we have decided whether our goal is to something or away from someone. We have now said it in a positive way. However, this is not yet a very thorough goal. We will now look at how we can do it more precisely.

The ideal goal should be in positive, bound and determined. You may also be interested in considering how to know when you've experienced it, what will it matter, how will the people around you like? What are you going to do to celebrate?

The goal must be a time limit. When will I have achieved it? If that's when I want to get it, when will I get started? What is the first step I need to take? Who should I say? Should the person be the first step? What skills or knowledge do I need on the way?

Goal size, is the goal too big to achieve? If so, it can break into smaller pieces into small pieces.

How serious are you about this goal? In scale 1 to 10 (1 is low and 10 is high), how far are you achieving this goal? If the answer is less than 7, you are illegal to follow it up completely. What would you need to do to achieve this goal from 7 to 8?

Now that you've really defined your goals, you're ready to go. Are not you? So what stops you?

I will take each and every one of the possible obstacles back and elaborate.

Lack of Information
Information may have one of two effects. Too much can be a surprise and can stop you from making a decision or taking the next steps. With too little information, you can not put things in touch or look at the larger image. Identifying where you have space in your knowledge, including this as part of your goal, brings you closer to achieving it. There are several ways to get new information. Research, planned reading, CD listening, DVD on a particular subject or network with individuals who have the knowledge to share with you.

Lack of Fitness
In order to pass, you may need to get talent on your way. This does not have to be a terrible challenge. As part of your goals, understanding the skills you need to acquire and how you will acquire them will form a step in your plan. This does not necessarily mean that you need to sign up for a course, although it is a great idea. Other benefits like online learning, proposed reading, shadow college at work, or seeking advice from friends can also help you to achieve the skills you need.

Limit Attitudes
We have all set of attitudes as we live our lives. This is put in our subconscious at the first age. Sometimes, these attitudes can hold you back and limit your ability to achieve your goals. Some common examples may be familiar to you.

Decision or extension – Should I do one thing or another? This often causes you to do nothing. Limit of faith appears as "I'm not able to make decisions". You can not make progress or stuck – when your workplace is no longer effective, keep using it and often form a comfort zone, limiting belief here might be "I can not / will not change". Often people will say that "I do not understand to succeed", or "it should not work for me". Here we are seeing themselves sabotage and not assessing themselves and their own abilities. These are just a few examples, but listen to them and check how often you hear yourself say things like this.

After your best efforts, there may be times when you are simply unable to pursue your goals. Sudden illness or injury can put you back. When this happens, you need to be realistic. Striking up will not help but simply not surrender. Take some time to reassess your goals and consider what your options are now. How important is that this goal is achieved within the original timeframe. Consider also how else you can achieve your goal and who can help you in these times.

Other People
Often the people closest to us are afraid that we will achieve our goals. For them, it means you can change and it will also mean a change for them. They may not be aware of how important your goals are for you. If the people you share your time with, for example, family, friends, colleges do not understand and support your goals, you're likely to be able to influence it. If these people are able to change them, they might potentially break your plans.

Own motivation
While you have the best intentions, the innovation may go away or there are other disturbances. This can be down to many factors. Perhaps the goals you set were too big and had to break into a smaller manageable lump. Perhaps you do not get the results and need to consider what you do, which prevents you from moving on. After continuing efforts, you can find that the goal is actually something that does not want, or at least output.

In this case, you need to reassess the goal. If it requires change because circumstances have changed, change it. If it no longer serves you, do not waste your energy after something just because you started it.

We all live in a world where we do not seem to have enough time. Many of us are "poor", which means we do not get our time to get the best results. Often I hear from people around me "I just do not have time to do x". How true is this statement really? Have we taken too much, left us and have trouble saying no? Maybe, but I have another view.

If we approach our temporary use without structure, we can just jump from one item to another in any specific rules. Without priority, we must move from one to the next most urgent.

It is also a factor in interference. This can be a distraction from others who do not have the same hopes as you. There is a distraction of calls and email. Often you are busy with things that are fun, but do not take us further to achieve our goals.

Money are common reasons why you do not reach your goal. Usually there is a lack of money that stops you. When you hear someone say "I can not afford it" or "I just do not have the money". These statements are usually offered without much hesitation.

While I agree that it may well be true to some extent, what options have they actually explored and how could another find the money? If you are very serious about achieving this goal, what length would you go to find the money (legally)!

Let's turn this and look at it from another angle. What does it cost you to have the goal of your life now? For example, be in a bad relationship or persistent health. To achieve this goal would be to get you the next job, or mean you were getting a 10% bonus bonus at work, what efforts should you take?

What do I mean for fear? There are more obvious examples. If you need to do something that takes you just outside your comfort area for the first time, that might well put fear into you.

Then there is fear of failure. What will those around you think if you do not reach your goal. How will you deal with them and maintain your integrity. Better stop right now to see it through right? That way no one can judge me.

Another type of fear is fear of success. What if I really do it and people find me fraudulent? Is this something I really want? Your self-esteem comes into play and you try to figure yourself out of it.

What evidence does this support in a business context?

In a recent survey conducted by small and medium-sized companies and unions, they were asked what they saw as the biggest challenges they faced in 2010. All those surveyed were partly successful in achieving their goals and 2009 goals. 33% of these goals were significant, and the reasons for not reaching them were weak and no request for assistance and lack of confidence in the economy among others.

Many of these goals were moved in next year, some people who passed all their goals. When asked what they would do to get them, 66% said they would try something different and 33% would seek help.

What is it like to stop these business people from continuing? Well from the sample survey, the main components were lack of skills, lack of knowledge, health, fear (of success / failure) and limiting attitude.

Those who responded that they would seek assistance; It was equally divided among others in their business or profession, approached the commercial manager or contact with a specialist company. From these three options, it's certainly watching what your competitors are doing can give you clues. After all, if someone in our sector is successful look at what they are doing. Likewise, experts can be useful if they understand your goals and aspirations. However, they can have another program, after all, they are also in business.

Nonetheless, neither of these two methods is focused on helping you achieve your goals, nor is it their responsibility to work on them. This is where a business coach can prove particularly valuable. They will assist you in defining and developing your goals, finding out what is stopping you and developing strategies to help you cope with the obstacles when they come together.

The commercial bank will also encourage you to check if you are working towards goals that move you towards what you want and be responsible for those goals. As a sole trader or small and medium-sized business, there is often no one around with what you can share your goals with and discuss.

One of the common objections to using a commercial manager is the cost, which often says: "I can not afford it" or "it's too expensive". It is sometimes useful to look at this from another perspective. How much do you not have to use a commercial manager? If you can add value to achieve each goal, you can calculate with the help of a successful business coach.

Let's go back to a survey of respondents for a moment. Two of the problems indicated were lack of competence and lack of knowledge. Tell me a moment if a commercial manager could help you identify what these gaps were, how to close them and how to download them to your business, what would it be worth? You might think you can go alone, but consider how to clearly identify those gaps in skills or knowledge? How long would it take you? What direction would you go? For example,

In this report I have explained what the goal is and why it is important to have them. I have identified 9 obstacles that could potentially prevent you from achieving these goals. These are:

1. Lack of information
2. Lack of skills
3. Limited faith
4. Welfare
5. Other
6. Own motivation
7. Time
8. Money
9. Fear

I have shown that this is shown in the business context for Sole Traders and SME and looking into any methods that can be applied. And finally, I've discussed how business coaches could help achieve these goals.
