In my last post I gave you the first 3 reasons that your goals are going to fail if you don’t make some changes.  Now let’s get to the lat two reasons.

Reason 4- Lack of Vision

It’s really hard to get where you want to go if you don’t have a clear picture of what it looks like.  When all of the details aren’t there, you don’t have a clear vision in your mind of what your goal looks like.  With that missing, it makes it hard to get where you’re going.

Start by having a very vibrant, clear vision of each of your goals.  See each goal as you would a movie and allow that vision to inspire you.  If you could have that goal, exactly what would your life look like?  Bill Gate’s vision was “There will be a personal computer on every desk running Microsoft software.”  Your vision helps create the context for your goals.  Create that context and then go for your goal inside of that context.

Reason 5-You have No Plan

This is one of the biggest mistakes that I see people make.  They jump on the road to their destination, but have no clue as to how they’re getting there.  They might even know some of the details, but that’s simply not enough.  Working toward your goals without a plan is like attempting to drive a long distance without a road map.  Think about this for a moment, would you attempt to drive across the country without a map that tells you how far you have to travel, how long it’s going to take to get there, the cities and states that you’ll go through and the places that are available for you to stop for what you need along the way like gas, food and sleep?  Of course you wouldn’t.  As crazy as this sounds, this is what so many people are doing on a regular basis.  They’re embarking on their journey, but don’t have a plan to help them get there.

Your plan is your road map.  It details where you’re starting from, where you’re going and all of the points in between.  It defines your milestones—those points along the way that have you get to major accomplishments along the road to accomplishing your goal.

If you want to be successful at accomplishing your goals, these 5 major things have to be in place.  There are other things that come into play to help contribute to your success and if you’re missing them, you will fail.  If you’re struggling right now implementing these steps will help you, but you may not know where to start or you might be wondering exactly how to go about taking each one of these steps.  Then of course, there are the other things that come into play when it comes to successfully accomplishing your goals.
