Blast Through Barriers to your Goals

Author: admin

One of the reasons we do not face our goals is because when we are faced with an unexpected barrier that were unsure how to deal with, we shut down. We become discouraged, we start making excuses, and we allow ourselves to back off of our original plan. While this is a human and natural tendency, its not conducive to success.
An important step that you can take to avoid this barrier blunder is that of carefully planning your goal to include backup plans for all those little "what ifs.""What if I dont pass the prerequisite course?""What if I dont get the loan?""What if I run out of time?""What if the marketing doesnt work?""What if I just dont feel like it?"These are all very real barriers that keep us from realizing our life dreams. By preplanning for them, we greatly improve our chances of succeeding and experience the power of being unstoppable.
What kind of barriers can you preplan?
Internal BarriersInternal barriers include the thoughts you have about your goal, success, and yourself that keep you from being successful. They include your personal fears, motivation, selfesteem, and paradigms.
"What if I just dont feel like doing my assignment?"Solution commit to working on it for at least 15 minutes. Then take a break and come back to it later"What if my fear of the phone keeps me from following through on my marketing campaign?"Solution have a friend help me make phone calls. It might not be so bad if Im not alone.
"What if I find myself procrastinating?"Solution ask a friend to call me every day to remind me to spend a little time on my goal. Work on my goal first thing in the morning to get it done and over with.
External BarriersExternal barriers include barriers such as money, time, other peoples reactions, resources, and results. We are not in direct control of them, but we can affect how they work and we can still plan around them.
"What if the client turns down my proposal?"Solution ask questions to find out why, and resubmit it.
"What if I forget the worksheets?"Solution fax a copy to the hotel and get new copies made.
"What if the landscaping blocks dont come in on time?"Solution pad the timeline and notify the client of this possibility in advance. Realign timeline to work on other projects until the blocks come in.
Practice this technique with even your small, shortterm goals. It feels great to know that when a brick wall appears in your path, you have the perfect solution for getting around it and getting back on the road to achievement!
