Why don't more people set goals since it's clear that those who do are happier, healthier, and more successful?
Did you hear too much that you’re not good enough and overtime started to believe it.
Maybe you set goals in the past, but failed and don’t want to try again.
Maybe you’re afraid of failing and would rather be able to say “you didn’t try” then to go all out and fail.
I remember doing this in school where I would rather say “I didn’t try” then try to get an A and fail, and then feel stupid.
Nothing great was ever achieved without setting a goal first. Things don’t just happen. Things happen for the people that make them happen.
We didn’t just end up on the moon. John F. Kennedy made it the public goal of the United States to get us there.
Maybe you don't think the pain of pursuing a goal is worth upsetting your current lifestyle?
The day we stop trying to grow is the day we start asking to die.
I believe the universe wants to help us achieve our goals, but if you don’t set goals the universe will pass over you and start to demand more and more from you in order to give more to the people who are setting goals.
If you think about it, what other living organism is capable of imagining the future as clearly as us?
Other organisms act instinctually. I believe goal-setting is what makes us divine. Do you think the creator just gave us this unique ability haphazardly so that we would never use it?
He gave it to us so that we can co-create the future with him, her, or it.
Maybe you put the paper in front of your face, but can’t come up with any goals that inspire you enough to put in the effort.
I’m not entirely sure how you can create that fire in your belly since I’ve had it for as long as I can remember, but ultimately you don’t have to cure cancer or create world peace, start small, create some small goals where you can make forward progress.
I know I’m coming down hard on this because I love engaging in conversations with people who want more for themselves and the world.
It’s funny people are quick to offer their goals for the country, who they want to be president, what policies they want implemented, but then if you ask them what goals they have for him or herself they aren’t so sure.
I’m genuinely curious why you don’t set goals (if you fall into this overwhelming majority of people) and I'm here to help in anyway I can.
Goal achieving isn't easy, but nothing great ever was.
