YOU ARE AFRAID OF FAILING _ The truth is nobody wants to fail. Failure is painful and distressing both emotionally and financially. We all have failed at one time or the other. While we resolve to learn from our experience to forge ahead, we allow these failures to \'cage\' us and make us \'play it safe\'. Hence, we don\'t maximize our potential to the fullest. YOU ARE AFRAID OF CRITICISM _ These are people that feel that by setting a goal and not achieving that goal, they will receive criticism from others. If you fall into this category, I have a simple solution for you, ensure that your goals are confidential. There is no need to tell anyone your goals. Let your results and achievements speak for you.
What is so important in our lives that we would need to set goals anyway? Every leader we have ever heard of or who has spoken very much they always end up telling us we need to set goals. Any student of leadership has this one main concept embedded in their minds and that is the idea that we need to have goals. Are all these so_called leaders out there going to tell us that we can not nor never will accomplish anything of lasting or true value without goal_setting? What in the world is so important that we have to set goals for its accomplishment? When was the last time you set a goal to do something before you set out to do it?
