One of the reasons why some people say that setting goals is a waste of time is because they didn´t achieve their goal and the cause of this in most cases is a lack of clarity, if you know exactly what you want and you are specific in details you´ll create a plan that tells you exactly what to do and if you follow it long enough the chances of achieving your goal are really high.
We all want a lot of things in our life but most of us when we set goals or when we try to make the Law of Attraction work for us we are not clear. I´ve been talking with some friends and family about their goals and what would they want to achieve and the problem I see is that they are not clear and sometimes not even sure of what they really want.
Last week I was talking with a friend and he started to tell me about a goal he wanted to achieve but when I asked him to be more clear he started changing his mind and even the goal. This constant changing can come from fear and insecurity.
If you are not clear and specific on what you want and the details you´re going to be sending mix signals or messages to the Universe, this is one of the reasons why the Law of Attraction don´t work. You need to be clear and specific, go to the details, the more specific you are the better, you are sending details to your mind so it knows exactly what to focus on.
What do you truly desire? your goals need to give you a sense of purpose and fulfillment and you need to have a clear vision, without clear you can´t develop a plan of action that can get you where you want. If you don´t know where you want to go or who you want to be you´ll be going blind through life.
Without a sense of purpose and direction you can set goals and plans. Do you want to lose weight just for an event? or do you want to lose weight and make it sustainable? how much weight do you want to lose? what is your target weight? do you want to lose weight as fast as possible or in a healthy way? how much weight do you want to lose per month?
There are so many questions you need to ask yourself when you set your goals and by asking all those questions is how you get to details. When you are specific with your goals you are able to create a plan that gives you those results.
Clarity, details and specificity is what makes the plan work, you need to do certain things a certain way to get some specific results, when you know exactly what you want you know exactly what you need to do, when you do what you need to do you´ll get results that get you closer to your goals and those results give you the motivation you need to keep going. If you don´t get the results you want you lose motivation and all this could be cause by not doing the right things or taking the right action because you don´t set a clear goal.
For some people is not easy to be clear and specific on what they really want, some of them just have an idea of what they want based on what they love or what they experienced or lived but they need more knowledge and insights, they need to experience, discover and learn a lot more so that they can get clear on what it is that they want to achieve and what they want to do.
Being specific means that you can set dates, time, numbers, names and make your goal measurable. Specific goals lead to strategic plans that lead to great results.
