TRUTH - they keep this goal to themselves and as such, they have little reason, aside from an internal desire, which unless firmly rooted and attached to an emotional why, tends to diminish exponentially over time, to stay committed to it for any length of time.
TRUTH - many people set goals that lack a timeline.....thus making them a wishy washy wish and not actually a goal that they're setting out to achieve.
TRUTH - those who make their goals public......are the ones who tend to stick to them. They have a greater priority for their goals because they've made them public so, giving up, would mean a greater sense of shame or guilt in having "failed" the identified goal.
TRUTH - the biggest mistake people who are SERIOUS about making changes and setting goals in their lives make, is NOT sharing their goals. SHARE THEM - go public - THAT is accountability at its finest.
I've been there too - "i'm so scared to fail, so if i just don't tell anyone, and I fail, then no one knows but me"....but what's wrong with this picture.......you're continuously failing yourself that way.....cause you're not using something OTHER than yourself to hold yourself accountable. When I started SHARING my goals and KNEW that someone was watching and/or waiting for me to fail......I started seeing my results.
Now this doesn't happen for everyone, but it's fairly common and something that I come across A LOT in my day to day chats with clients and coaches! When you PUT YOUR GOALS OUT THERE and REALLY IDENTIFY STEPS THAT YOU'RE GOING TO TAKE TO MAKE THEM HAPPEN ......that's when SHIT GETS REAL!!!!!
MAKE THEM PUBLIC people. No more hiding! Take your accountability to the next level and MAKE YOUR GOALS HAPPEN!
