You may see goals as somewhat limiting or stifling your creativity. You may take the position that if you commit to a goal you must stubbornly pursue it and close the door to other opportunities that may arise. While these are the most common reasons for foot_dragging, when it comes to goal setting, the reasons for not setting goals are almost endless. I even had one lovely lady tell me that she didn\'t set goals because she was afraid that if she wrote them down she would jinx her future success. She thought it would be \"bad juju\"! We can be very creative when it comes to finding excuses for not attending to this vitally important task. When you think about it, with all these reasons to avoid goal setting, why should you even set goals? Small business owners, business book authors and consultants are missing a vitally important piece of information about goals: they have a magnetic quality. That brings me to reason #7. This is the most important, yet seldom recognized, reason small business owners resist setting goals. You don\'t realize the power and full benefits of Magnetic Goals. When you define your own set of Magnetic Goals, use them as a tool, rather than just a \"I have to do because smart folks tell me to\" exercise, you will see for yourself the awesome power of Magnetic Goals to draw success to you.
The Motivation behind Set Goals _ The meaning of it is that the purpose of goals is not so you get things but rather of what they will make of you as a person. I am in the phase of realizing that right now. Most people set goals blindly. They desire and focus on material things. And there is nothing wrong with that; I want you to have as many things as you want because that is part of life too. It is part of the manifestation process of creating results when you set goals. But if all you do is to focus on getting things, it may cost you your integrity of who you want to be, of what you want to create in your life. So you got to be careful!
