A goal is distinctively different from a dream or a wish. It is clear, specific and written down. It has measurable outcomes to indicate with no uncertainty when the goal is achieved. The Fear of Failure People have an inherit fear of failure. They therefore don\'t set goals simply because they are afraid of failing or not achieving the set goal. No one enjoys failing. It is painful often on many levels and depending on the area of failure, can cause different levels of distress in a person. Failure is unfortunately not something that cannot be avoided altogether. The way one responds to failure can however be controlled. Failure must be seen as building blocks for a successful life and every failure moves you one step closer to living this successful life.
Measurable _ Structuring goals that can be measured _ So you want to walk for exercise... good! What does measured success look like? How far and how often do you want to walk? How would you know that you remain en_route to success and how would you prove this to yourself? You will need to break the key goal down to measurable small steps, like deciding you will walk 5 km 5 days out of 7. The best way to keep track of your achievements and progress towards your key goal is to keep an exercise diary.
