They Don\'t Know How. People often do not practise goal setting because they simply do not know how to go about it. Many times people are under the impression that they do have goals, while actually they only have a series of vague dreams or wishes like \"To be happy\" or \"To make a lot of money\".
Behaviors vs. Focus for Set Goals _ You need to realize that when you set goals for yourself, they are outside of your control, so if you spend too much time focusing on your goals, you never achieve them. By contrast, if you focus on your behaviors rather than your goals, then you can achieve your objectives. You alone can see to your behaviors. They are what you can control. So, you have to ignore the part of your goals that you cannot influence and focus on the part that is in your control which is behaviors. Once you focus on your actions, day after day, you begin to learn all the information you need to reach your set goals. When you visualize your goal as already achieved, it puts you in a position where you can focus on a plan to make it. Behaviors are short term based when we set goals; it is usually seven days. So you have to think about what you can do today, tomorrow and this week, write them down and go for it.
