Is Goal Setting holding you back?
The SUCCEED Research Center has presented some startling research that suggests traditional goal setting formulas may be doing more harm than good.

While you should outline as many of these details as possible before you begin on the road to achieving a specific goal, you must understand and accept that no matter how hard you try, you can never really have a complete picture of that end destination.
Clarity is strongest when it focuses on an “inward now,” instead of looking at a “geographical location.” In other words, clarity has more to do with why you want something than with what you want. Instead of just trying to describe where you are going, ask yourself why you are going there.
What does this mean to you? The more personal you can make this goal, the more power and motivation you will have to get it. Make your “why” strong, and keep digging deeper with questions until you have a burning desire to attain it. Most of the reasons why people fail to achieve a specific goal can be traced right back to this one point. Without a reason “why,” no one really cares about the destination of “what.”
Top achievers don’t think of success as crossing a finish line, they think in terms of running the race: It’s very interesting to see posters encouraging people who endeavor to capture their success by crossing a finish line, because the truth is, true success has no finish line. Top achievers understand that success is a continual process, and the successes and failures of today are used to build the powerful experiences of tomorrow. Every opportunity today is contributing to an opportunity tomorrow. Every experience contributes to learning.
If you cross a finish line today only to rest tomorrow, how can your success continue? Look for ways to continue to grow and expand, and uncover ways to build each success upon the next opportunity.
Top achievers set their goals differently, and that is why they achieve successes that others only dream about. Learning to “BE” instead of just to “DO,” gaining true clarity by finding out “why” and committing to continual growth is essential in the achievement process. When you understand and implement the principles of top achievement, dramatic changes will happen for you.
