If you grow up in a home where no one sets goals let alone seeks to achieve them, you won\'t see the need to set goals as well.

The Fear of Rejection in goal setting is situated in the notion that when a person fail to achieve a specific goal, that person will be less acceptable to friends, family and peers. Instead of setting goals people then tend to shy away from clearly written down goals. The key is to implement a measure of confidentiality about your goals.
