You\'re Scared of Failure _ Many people do not bother setting goals because they have a self_limiting belief that they\'ll fail anyway. Therefore, if they do not set a goal, they won\'t have to be a failure. But remember that the idea of planning to succeed over planning to fail is realistic. No goal setting is a recipe for failure; goal setting is a recipe for success. When you accept that you can only achieve real success through goal setting, you\'ll overcome this obstacle.
Your self_esteem, awareness, ability to communicate, energy and responsibility can all be amplified by your use of goal setting. Developing and maintaining our self_esteem is one of the challenges every one faces sooner or later. Confidence comes from knowing that we can successfully complete what we set out to do. It results from experience, the experience of meeting our goals effectively. We must have some way to evaluate an experience, some way to know whether it was valuable or not. This is where goal_setting comes in. Setting realistic goals, working toward them and finally achieving them are superb learning experiences. We feel good about ourselves when we meet our goals. Which in turn makes it easier for us to reach our next goals, and so the effect soon snow_balls.
