ROADBLOCK #1 - You Have the wrong ATTITUDE:
Your attitude plays a huge role in accomplishing everything.
Check Yourself: If you start to believe that you must have a “PERFECT PROCESS” or already have negative attitude towards the process.
Action Item: Before even creating your goal, start with telling yourself that You are CAPABLE, You CAN do it, and allow room for grace.
ROADBLOCK #2 – You’re Doing too Much too Fast.
Your initial excitement may lead you to try and take on multiple new behaviors & action items that align with your bigger goal or multiple goals.
Check Yourself: If you become overwhelmed and less motivated due to restrictions, check lists & calendars.
Action Item: Choose one area of life/goal and ‘work that plan” until you master it and then move on to another area.
ROADBLOCK #3 – Your Goals Are Vast & Vague
Your goals may be vast, vague and unspecific making it harder or even impossible to achieve them.
Check Yourself: If your goal lacks specific guidelines.
Action Item: Be as specific as possible! Many of you have heard of the popular acronym SMART, which is helpful in setting goals that are: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound.
ROADBLOCK #4 – You’re Easily Influenced
You’re basing your goals/plan on your peers, social media influences and culture.
Check Yourself: If you focus on a goal/plan based on someone’s else success, opinion, or experience, we are all so different and doing this will cause you to face an immediate roadblock.
Action Item: Take account of all aspects of your life into consideration when creating a goal. There is nothing wrong with seeking advice based on someone’s experience, but their plan may not work for you and your lifestyle.
