Five Goal Setting Mistakes To Avoid in 2020

The sky's the Limit

No Regrets in 2020

A surefire way to avoid regrets in 2020 and achieve significant changes is to break all the standard goal-setting rules you may have followed in the past.  The definition of insanity is doing the same thing, again and again, expecting a different outcome. 

If you intend to create significant life-changing actions and results in 2020, I dare you to think outside of the box.  Think The Sky’s the Limit!  How different would your life be if you achieved all that you said you would at the beginning of each year? 

Take a moment and remember when you first set out to make an impact on the world with your passion and ingenuity!  When you believed whatever you wanted you only had to go for it.   The opportunities were limitless, the excitement of what was possible kept you awake at night, made you bound out of bed in the morning with the anticipation of what the day would bring.    Fast forward 3 – 5 – 10 -20 years.  How is it going?  Are you just getting by? Are you trudging through your day with little to no excitement? Are you doing the same thing as before with nothing new on the horizon?  I dare you to break out of your annual routine and stop making these mistakes when setting your goals or intension for 2020.  

Top 5 Goal Setting Mistakes that keep you and your business status quo

  1. Set too general of a goal.  Example:  I will make 10K more than last year.  That leaves you wondering how you’ll reach it and no clear path on the steps it takes to do so.  The same example applies to health and fitness or even personal development goals. 
  2. Accept past successes or failures as the ultimate truth of what you can achieve.  Do not assume that if you failed before, you will again.  If it’s something you really want, find a new way to approach it and try again.  If you succeeded in the past are you accepting that as the hight of your limits?
  3.  Compare yourself with others.  No one can set the bar for you!  There is always someone worse or better at whatever you are attempting to achieve. 
  4. Telling yourself you have it clear in your head.  To solidify your intention it must be written down.  Doing so makes a powerful statement of what you Will Achieve.  If it’s not written down, it’s incredible how easy it is to avoid, forget or make excuses as to why you didn’t do it.    

Here’s a powerful way of creating your goals.  Start with realistically Dreaming of what you want to accomplish.  Then GO BIGGER!  Yes!  Hit that idea out of the park!  Begin brainstorming how this could happen.  Don’t worry about why it can’t happen, pull yourself and/or your team/family together and start brainstorming ideas on what you CAN do!  Not what HAS been done or worse yet, what OTHERS have done.  Believe you can achieve it with all your heart!  Because You Can!

How much money do you want to make?  What projects do you finally want to get done this year?  What new idea do you want to give life too?   Dream it!  Believe it!  What does it look, feel, taste, smell like?  How will this change your life?   Measure and celebrate along the way, every milestone, and make 2020 a year to remember. 

When you participate actively every day with intention, belief, and joy, the life you want will manifest itself.   I wish you an exhilarating, productive, and lucrative 2020!
