Why Is Goal Setting Not Working For Me?

By richard blair

There over 4,000,000 articles on goal setting on the internet, that's 4 million. Yet with all this information available, people are still not getting it in their life. There must be something missing.


Time restrains do not permit that. If you could find 3 or 4 with the best parts used to make one good treatise, you might up your odds. That's kind of like the down and out street person looking for something in the garbage.

What is the missing link?


You must be totally honest, first to yourself, then to all others. This is the most skipped over need in almost all goal setting articles. No you cannot use little white lies. You cannot scam your way to success, failure is always waiting for you at some turn in the road. All your efforts will be lost. You will be back at ground zero. You cannot build on shifting sand.


Do not be frivolous. Do not start asking for things that you do not really want. It alright to ask for big things, but it is wise to work your way up to bigger things as you begin to taste the fruits of success. Small successes will reinforce your voyage on your way to bigger successes.


Everyone is using goal setting whether they know it, or whether they understand it or not. Your sanity is preserved by the fact that your subconscious will lower your goals to a point where you will try to feel comfortable. Understand it or not, your very soul has this build in to help you survive, and maintain your sanity. I repeat you are using goal setting now whether you know it or not. You just do not understand goal setting at a conscious level.
A negative attitude will leave you dead in the water. If you are serious about improving, you must continue a trial and error path, and realize failure is but a stepping stone to success.

If you can grasp this concept, you can begin to see the need for going
slow until you feel goal setting working in your life.

You can contact me at, I welcome all requests. I will, as soon as humanly possible respond to any and all request or comments.

Some gurus want to make this out to be a mystery, and put together a lengthy document to justify their price.
The more complicated equals more dollars for you to spend. I'm not saying these programs don't work, but most don't work for the average person. All 4,000,000 different sites can't be right! Some are blatantly misleading and incorrect.
