One of the biggest reasons people miss or don’t achieve their goals, isn’t because the goal is too hard; it’s because it is difficult to stay focused on the goal. Have you ever set a goal in your life and as soon as you set it, immediately you began to see all the obstacles that could prevent you from reaching that goal?
By losing your focus and paying more attention to the obstacles, you find that your motivation begins to wane because you don’t see how you will ever reach your goal. Some of the most common obstacles will see are lack of time, money, resources, experience, and knowledge, just to name a few.
The best way to overcome these obstacles is to break your goal down into bite sized pieces. By doing so, you will be able to focus on each of the smaller pieces of your goal. As you get the smaller pieces completed, you will begin to find that the picture of your larger goal is actually coming together.
For instance, if you want to write a book, don’t focus on how you have to write 200-500 pages of material. Focus on just writing 2-5 pages per day.
Or, if you want to loose 50 pounds, don’t focus on how you are going lose 50 pounds. Instead, focus on how you are going to loose ½ -1 pound per week.
Or, if you have debts of $10,000 that you want to pay off, don’t focus on the $10,000, focus on controlling your overspending and paying off $100 - $500 per month.
You see, if you remove the obstacles by breaking your goal down into achievable tasks, you will be able to stay focused and reach your goal much faster than you ever thought possible.
