You have probably read, heard, and seen lots of information about the benefits of setting goals. Maybe you have even created a vision board and achieved the things you visualized.
Most people don’t set goals — and for a very good reason!
Most goal-setting processes don’t work.
Years ago when I started teaching the NLP Outcome Strategy in companies, people would come up to me, months or years later and whisper in my ear: “I tried that goal process. It didn’t work. I don’t know why.”
This got me to thinking! How many times have I set an intention, visualized it, wrote it down, worked toward it but never achieved it? For each year for about 15 years I set the goal of achieving a certain weight. Have you seen me lately :-)?
So what is the issue that plagues so many people? It is not usually a problem of knowledge or skill — if you only needed to find out how to do something to be successful, most people would accomplish what they wanted.
Did you know that over 40% of the population are not motivated by goals? Motivation is the problem!
I am not even talking about whether a specific goal is motivating or not. If setting and working diligently to achieve specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, ecological goals makes you want to stick your finger down your throat, you are not alone.
A few years ago, I created a short audio program called Wishing, Wanting and Achieving to help people figure out their own success strategies.
Maybe you need something other than goals to help you succeed!
to listen to Wishing Wanting and Achieving!

I wish you much happiness, health and success Shelle!
