9 Obstacles You Achieve To Achieve Your Goals

September 27, 2017

While you have spent a lot of time for the next year, there are many things you will get to achieve you.

Before we proceed, let's determine the use of language here. Goals can be replaced by goals, goals, outcomes, achievements, resolutions, goals, ambitions and any other people you can think of. For the purpose of this report, the writer will use Tarel.

How often have you started the year or next phase of your development with good intentions and a few goals of what you want to accomplish, just to find that somehow you never see them reach? What I will treat in this article are the 9 biggest obstacles you get on the road. I will take each other and discover what is behind, why it is, and more importantly the action you can take to put it on one side.

What I will also do is prove that this is used to respond to a survey conducted by Sole Traders and owners of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), identifying the challenges they face in the next year will be encountered.

Although there are probably hundreds of potential obstacles, 9 appear mostly.

1. Lack of information

2. Lack of skill

3. Restrictive beliefs

4. Welfare

5. Other people

6. Own motivation

7. Time

8. Money

9. Anxiety

Why do you have a goal?

If you need more reason set your own goals. In a study conducted by students in the 1979 Harvard MBA program, only three percent of graduates had written written goals and plans; 13 percent had goals, but they were not in writing;

Ten years later, the findings showed that 13 percent of the target groups reached 84 percent compared to those who had not been. For the three percent who recorded their goals and wrote, they earn ten times as many as the other 97 percent.

Some fixed goals that are too general. These are, in fact, fantasies that are common to all. On the other hand, goals are clear, written, specific and measurable.

What is a goal?

Other names used are other languages. Why do we have them? Different types of target – to / from.

Some goals are called out of purpose. These are usually classified in the negative form. Here are some examples.

o I do not want to smoke anymore

o I do not want to be unsuitable

o I do not want to be overweight

o I do not want to be broken

Let's get them back in the positive

o I'm a non-smoker

o I am fit and health

o I am on my ideal weight

o I can cover my bills

Note the difference. They are in positive and assume that you have already achieved it. By assuming that your behavior changes so that you act as if you have already achieved what you wanted to do. What a great feeling to have even before you get there. It also supports your motivation.

So now we have determined whether our goal is for something, or away from something. We have said it in a positive way. However, this is not yet a very well-detailed goal. We will now see how we can make it specific.

An ideal goal must be expressed in the positive, time-bound and specific. You can also consider how you know when you've achieved it, how will it feel, how will the people around you be? What will you do to celebrate it?

A goal must be time-bound. When do I want to reach? If so, I have to start? What is the first step I should take? Who should I tell? Should that person be the first step? What skills or knowledge should I get along?

Target size, is the goal too big to achieve? If that is the case, it is the right approach in the smaller bite size pieces.

How serious are you with this goal? On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 low and 10 high), how committed are you to this goal? If your answer is less than 7, it will probably not follow you completely. What should you do to move this goal from 7 to 8?

Now that you've really defined your goal, you're ready to go. Are not you So what do you stop?

I will incorporate and expand each of the potential obstacles in turn.

Lack of information

Information may have one of two effects. With too much you can be overwhelmed and can you stop making a decision or taking the next steps. With too little information you can not put things in perspective, or look at the larger image. Identifying where you have leaks, and this as part of your goal, will bring you closer to achieve it. There are several ways to get new information. Investigate, scheduled read, listen to CDs, DVDs on a specific topic or network with people who have the knowledge to share with you.

Lack of skill

To move forward, you may need to get skills. This does not have to be a huge challenge. As part of your goal, understand what skills you must acquire, and how you will acquire it, will form steps from your plan. This does not necessarily mean that you have to enroll in a course, although that is a good idea. Other alternatives like online study, scheduled reading, a colleague at the workplace, shadows or friend's advice can also help you to get the skills you need.

Restrictive beliefs

We all have a series of beliefs that lead us to life. These are placed in our subconscious mind at an early age. Sometimes these views can hold you back and limit your ability to achieve your goals. Some common examples can be familiar to you.

Undecided or Delays- Do I Have To Do Something? This often results in you doing nothing. The limiting belief manifests itself as "I can not make decisions". Can not make progress or crash – If a way of working is no longer effective, use it and often form a comfort zone. The limited belief can be: "I can / can not change". Often people will say that "I do not deserve to be successful" or "that should not work for me". Here we see self-tampering and do not appreciate them and their own funds. These are just a few examples, but listen to them and watch how often you should hear things like this.


Despite your best efforts, there may be times when you can not easily track your goals. A sudden illness or injury can put you back. If this happens you must be realistic. Defeating yourself will not help, or just give up. Take some time to judge your goal and consider what your options are now. How important is that this goal is achieved within the original timeframe. Also consider how further your goal can be pursued, and who can help you during these times.

Other people

Often the people closest to us are afraid that we achieve our goals. For them, this means that you can change and that also means change for them. They may not be aware of how important your goals are for you. If the people you share with your family, for example, with family, friends, colleagues, do not understand and support your goals, you may be able to influence it. If these people are unfavorable to change, they may be able to sabotage your plans.

Own motivation

Although you may look for the best intentions, the novelties may be absent after a while or there are other distractions. This may affect a number of factors. Perhaps the goals you set are too big, and you need to manage it into smaller manageable tricks. You may not get the results, and you should consider what you do to prevent you from moving forward. After continuous effort, you can feel that the goal is actually something that does not want, or at least the result.

In this case, the goal must be reviewed again. If the change requires, because the circumstances have changed, change it. If you do not use it, do not waste your energy on anything, just because you started it.


We all live in a world where we do not have enough time. Many of us are "time poor", which means we can not manage our time management to get the best results. Often I hear about the people around me, I just do not have time to do x. How true is this statement really? Have we taken too much, surrendered ourselves and shame to say no? Maybe, but I have a different view.

If we do not tackle our time management, we can not jump from one thing to another in any order. Withou
