How many times have you set a goal and failed to reach it? Your ultimate goal of X is set and you go on your merry way, trying your best to reach that long term goal. You have all the motivation in the world and you want to reach your goal more than anything, but somewhere along the way you run out of gas, fall right back into your old habits and after a few months you are right back where you started. A perfect example of this is the New Year’s resolutions that people set each year. 92.5% of all New Year’s resolutions are never achieved (a completely made up number but probably fairly accurate). Are you part of that percentage? Have you ever set a goal that you have failed to reach? Chances are you have and it had nothing to do with how bad you wanted it and everything to do with your approach to achieving the goal. What I am going to discuss below is a detailed approach on setting goals. If you use the approach I discuss below you will greatly increase your chance of achieving the goals you set for yourself.
