Ep 4. 5 Reasons Why You’re Not Achieving Your Goals

why you're not achieving your goals

Are you on track to achieve your goals and create the results you really want?

If not, don’t worry – you’re not alone. We often have a long list of goals written down that just gather dust and make us feel inadequate for not making any progress.

That’s why, in this episode, I’m discussing why you’re not getting the results you want and the one thing you need to do to take action and get where you want.

This conversation is your motivational boost to draw a line in the sand and start fresh! I’ll explore the five most common reasons why people fail to achieve their goals. Some or all of these reasons could apply to you and provide you with clarity on how you’re setting yourself up to fail.

But we can change all of that around today.

I’ll take you through the one thing you need to do right now to start creating results and achieving your biggest, most important goal.

The most successful people who get what they want are not smarter than anyone else – they just show up consistently and are willing to do the work. Once you’ve listened to this episode, throw yourself in 100% because self-belief starts with you.

You’ve got this!

[13:09]: When we choose what we’re working towards, we create a plan and start to take action that shifts our focus and trajectory in that direction.
[14:08]: Don’t worry about your one thing being realistic. If you’re being realistic you’ll hold yourself back.
[15:21]: We pick our one thing, simplifying our focus and amplifying our results.
[15:44]: Does this one thing matter enough to you that you are willing to go all out to achieve it? Our comfort zone keeps us safe but it also keeps us small.
[18:25]: If you want it, own it and make it happen. You don’t have to have it all figured out but you have to be 100% invested.
[18:52]: Successful people all have a growth mindset in common.
[19:05]: There are only 4 steps to creating anything: #1 Decide what you want, #2 Create a plan, #3 Take action, #4 Review and refine the process.
