Why can’t I achieve my goal?
One of the presenters of the Business Success Tips podcast said something very significant. If you’re having trouble reaching a goal, you should identify the challenge that is getting in your way. He said that there were only two kinds of challenges that prevent someone from accomplishing something.
It’s either a training issue or a motivational issue.
Imagine someone put a gun to your head and told you to complete the goal. If you couldn’t do it, even in those circumstances, it’s a training issue. If you could do it, then it’s a motivational issue.
Kind’a cuts right to it, doesn’t it?
If you find yourself with a training issue, determine the exact knowledge that you need and where you can get the needed training. Then take action.
If it’s a motivational issue, you have the knowledge. You know how to do it. You just need the “kick in the pants” to get going. Consider how much you want this goal, and what it will mean to you once it’s achieved. Then take action.
