Goal Setting and Achievement Help to Boost Your Self-Confidence

August 31, 2010 By: Yvonne A Jones Category: Business - Entrepreneur, Business - Home-Based Business, goal setting

The biggest reason most people fail to reach their goals is a lack of action.  The fact that you have taken the time to write your goals on paper, identified the areas in your life that you would like to see these goals realized, and determined what steps you need to take to achieve them means that the only step left is to take action.

Goal setting can build your self-confidence when you achieve the goals you’ve set and are able to measure the process.  This gives an overwhelming sense of achievement and is a confidence booster because you are now able to quantify what you have accomplished and can conceive reaching for higher goals and perhaps greater challenges.

It’s important to set performance goals rather than base your success on ‘outcome’ goals since achieving them may involve unforeseen circumstances over which you have little or no control.

When you’ve achieved a goal, take time to enjoy the satisfaction to enjoy it, note what worked and did not work for you and continue to learn from every successfully completed goal in your life and your business.

  1. It’s so easy to just try and coast through without concrete goals. But, to be really successful, goals have to be written down and measured. How do you know when you get there if you don’t know what the goal is? And, we all want to celebrate our goals. It’s what makes our businesses thrive!

  2. Well said, Martha, yet so many people I talk with still do not believe its necessary to write down their goals. It’s been said ‘If you fail to set a goal, you’ll reach it every time.’
