You must have some silent objection to goal achievement – right?
After all - if you had no objections and no obstacles, you would certainly achieve every goal you set.
The unspoken objection to goal achievement is often the desire for a guarantee that everything will work, that everything will work out as planned before you start to pursue your chosen goal.
When you set your goal up front, isn’t it true that you desire, and want to know for certain that your time, effort, and attention have been invested wisely? Of course it is. It’s human nature to want as much certainty as possible that we will achieve our goal if we apply ourselves.
I encounter this bottleneck often with new prospects. They want the help. They want to learn from my experience. But they want a guarantee that what they learn will work in their situation. And they want it done for them.
For business owners hedging their bets (employee thinking vs. entrepreneur thinking), this is a trap they set for themselves. As with any program, or service you might provide, I stand behind each system and program I offer. But like you, I have to put boundaries on my delivery versus your application of these tools and materials. It would be unrealistic to try to provide a blanket 100% guarantee of specific results for each client. Each client is in a different situation with differing capacity to apply the tools, systems, materials, recommendations.
Some clients work the systems to the letter and start seeing immediate results. Some clients do the planning or budgeting work but never implement. Some clients learn but are afraid to implement.
That’s where this question of objections comes in. If you are not pursuing your goal achievements, can you identify, uncover or discover what the objection is that’s holding you back? Do you know what obstacles keep getting in the way?
You know how to reverse engineer your goals from these red flags, right?
- Define a problem you are having or a need you want to fulfill.
- Express the reasons why you must be the one to solve this problem.
- Write it down in the form of a goal already achieved with a date.
- Seek out appropriate solutions, tools, systems to help you tackle that specific problem.
- Implement the best solution to solve the problem that achieves the goal.
- Track, monitor, and correct to stay on course and achieve the goal.
When you eliminate the objections and obstacles, your path to goal achievement is clear, straight and swift.
“The Constitution only guarantees you
the right to pursue happiness.
You have to catch it yourself.”
~ Benjamin Franklin
Note that wording ‘the pursuit of happiness’. Notice that the Founding Fathers did not guarantee happiness. The same is true for you and goal achievement. They won for us the freedom to pursue happiness. Freedom of choice is a blessing, just like the pursuit of happiness, success and goal achievement.
The bottom-line is that it all depends on you. When you set your goals and each day thereafter, you must then pursue your goal. Overcoming objections is a daily effort on the path of goal achievement. It’s always about how you choose to apply yourself, invest your time, and stay focused on your big goals.
Eliminate your objection to goal achievement and you become unstoppable achieving every goal you set including your exit strategy and your definition of reinvention.
