  • lightArrowTM EIGHT SUREFIRE WAYS TO SABOTAGE YOUR GOALS
  • MAKE AMBIGUOUS, NON-SPECIFIC GOALS 1
  • MAKE AMBIGUOUS, NON-SPECIFIC GOALS A foolproof way to sabotage your success is to create ambiguous goals. Goals such as be happy or be healthy are recipes for failure. Specific goals, such as take a vacation to increase my happiness or lower systolic blood pressure number by 10 points will set you up for success. 1
  • CHOOSE LARGE, UNREALISTIC GOALS 2
  • CHOOSE LARGE, UNREALISTIC GOALS A surefire way to give up on a goal is to set your sights too high. Setting goals that you can actually achieve will put you on the path to success. Ensure your goals make sense. Some due diligence might be required in order to assess if your goal is actually attainable. 2
  • DONT RECORD YOUR GOALS 3
  • DONT RECORD YOUR GOALS If you dont want to be accountable for your success, then dont record or write down your goals. Using a smartphone app or notebook for goals will help you to keep track of and to monitor your goals, habits, to-dos, appointments, metrics and tasks. 3
  • SET UNMEASURABLE GOALS 4
  • SET UNMEASURABLE GOALS Not properly quantifying the results of your hard work and what youve successfully achieved is an excellent way to impair your accomplishments. Effective measurement drives both business and personal success. Seeing where you started and what youve achieved motivates you to keep going. 4
  • DONT SHARE YOUR GOALS WITH FRIENDS 5
  • DONT SHARE YOUR GOALS WITH FRIENDS If you dont want to achieve success, keep your goals to yourself. It will spare you the embarrassment when you dont reach them. Confiding in your friends can be an effective motivational tool. And its amazing how your friends and family can provide support when you need it the most. 5
  • Research shows that those who write down their goals, share them with friends, and send weekly updates to friends are on average 33% more successful in accomplishing their goals than those who only formulate goals. -source, Dominican University of California
  • DONT BUILD A PLAN 6
  • DONT BUILD A PLAN If you dont want to realize your vision, just wing it. If you have a need and a desire to make something happen, you must know the steps to get there. Build a project with tasks and record any resources you need to help you achieve your goals and to see your vision come to life. 6
  • DONT PRIORITIZE YOUR GOALS 7
  • DONT PRIORITIZE YOUR GOALS If you dont focus your energy on your most important goals, then its certain youll be destined for failure. This quote from Mark Twain sums it up, If you eat a frog first thing in the morning, that will probably be the worst thing you do all day. Even if the tasks to reach your goals are difficult or unpleasant, the reward will be worth it at the end. 7
  • FEAR YOUR SUCCESS 8
  • FEAR YOUR SUCCESS 8 If you truly want to undermine your success, dont listen to subtle clues that you fear change. Sometimes we subconsciously believe we dont deserve success or were afraid that a promotion or other victory might push us out of our comfort zones. Dont fear the unknown and recognize the signs of self-sabotage.
