  2. 2. THE REALITY OF GOAL SETTINGTHE REALITY OF GOAL SETTINGThe reality of Goal SettingDoes goal setting work?This is a question I am often asked. People hear about goal setting, they try it, sometimes theyhave success but most of the time they don’t have that much success and feel worse off thenbefore they start.You see when a person tries to achieve something and fails, they then get the feeling that it wasnot worth it, in fact it just shows they can’t succeed. So they don’t set any more goals. After allwhy set yourself up for failure….Why does goal setting fail?I’m not going to give you any long winded explanation I will get straight to the point. Peopledon’t know how to set goals correctly. There’s so much disinformation out there. Everywhere youlook someone has different advice.If you don’t set your goals properly then straight away you are setting yourself up for failure. Ihate to be honest here and blunt but that’s the truth.How to set better goalsI won’t say this is the definitive way to set goals as it depends on you and your personal Know what you want – clearly define what you want as your goal It’s your goal – it’s no one elses goal, so if you want to make 10k more or 100k more that’s ok Be realistic – if you are unfit and say that you want to run the marathon in a week then that’s not that realistic! Have milestones – set up a milestone so that you can work towards your goals in smaller chunks. Reward yourself when you get to each milestone Overcome set backs – there will always be set backs, things will always go wrong. That’s ok RICHARD BUTLER, RICHARDBUTLERTHESUCCESSCOACH +3531442 9769 - - 2
  3. 3. THE REALITY OF GOAL SETTING just push yourself to overcome these set backs. Don’t give up – sometimes you may not reach the intended goal, however learn from the journey you take That’s it, short, simple and to the point. But it works! Finally…. Set lots of little goals, as nothing makes you more successful than success itself. The more success you have the better you feel which makes you want more success… it’s the opposite of a vicious circle!
