To Reach Goals: Bypass Resistance & Gather Assistance
To reach goals, consider this illustration: If you see roadblocks up ahead on a journey you take a diversion. No one in their right mind would just drive on and hit the obstacle head on just hoping they get through!
When you set a goal and if you are going to successfully reach goals, you need to write down a list of potential obstacles you may face.
Are there people who won't understand your goal and discourage you?
Do physical limitations or unfavorable circumstances stand in the way?
Then list them, analyze them and develop a strategy.
With a roadblock you can turn off before you get there or go over, under and around.
Do the same with obstacles that may seem to make it impossible for you to reach goals you have set.
Is there any way you can bypass the objects of resistance you are likely to face?
Preparation like this is invaluable.
If and when you reach the obstacle you know what to do.
You have already made up a contingency plan so you can move ahead and reach goals you have set!
At the same time, it is important to identify the knowledge you will need to acquire or the people or organizations that could give you essential help to reach goals before you.
Research the subject and educate yourself.
Become knowledgeable on what you are trying to achieve.
Do you personally know people who have accomplished what you are seeking?
Talk to them. Get input.
How did they do it?
How did they feel once they were able to reach goals they had worked towards?
Can you link up with other persons in that field?
What organizations exist with support or information you could use?
The internet is almost a bottomless ocean of knowledge. Through persistence you can find pretty well anything you need to know.
So, to reach goals, bypass resistance and gather assistance.
Including these two elements in your goal setting can make the difference between a failed attempt at the target and a bull's eye!

Six keys to keys build vision - point four
4. Start somewhere (put to use what you already have)
Great Things Materialize Once We Start to Visualize
Watching the Olympics last week really amazed me. The feats of strength were fantastic, and the drama of the events themselves was captivating. But what really made the biggest impact was being reminded of something we all know or have learned in the past, and yet rarely put into action for ourselves: the art of visualization.
Whose Goals Are They?
Many have goals, but few reach them all. Businesses like sports teams aspire to making goals (gaining points) to earn rewards. Are your goals clichéd with being productive? Why is it so difficult to set realistic goals that 100% of the time you can reach with ease? Ever think about what the motivating factors are that caused you to choose those goals? Goals cannot be set alone - they need reflection and confirmation of the origin along the surrounding dynamics to assure the appropriate method to set realistic goals. If you choose to set goals based only on what you think is right, that will not work alone. You need to agree that the goals set by your organization are also your goals but not limited to their plan - make your own! Look beyond, dream about what you wish for your loved ones, for yourself and start there. Taking charge of your own destiny will keep you productive. You will be able to look beyond the politics of organizations that can diminish your efforts to reach and exceed goals when they are not your own.
Personal Goal Setting and Management - Planning for the Year Ahead
The start of a New Year is a great time to plan for what you want to achieve. What better time than to invest in yourself and set a course for the future. As you reach your goals you will need to set new ones. How do you do this in a powerful and focused way?
Getting What You Want
1. Recognize that you are the source of everything that you want.
The Stories We Tell Ourselves
The Hasidic master, Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach taught that on Passover night we are bringing our entire life stories to the Seder table to be freed. What exactly does this mean? To begin with, we are by nature, storytellers. Whether we are aware of it or not, we live in a world of stories. Stories that we tell our family, friends, coworkers, and clients. Stories we share over the phone, e-mail, in our journals and the stories that are constantly playing themselves out in our heads. Stories about what's happening to those we love, stories about those we despise, stories that inspire the spirit, and stories that instill fear.
Simple Ways to Super-Charge Your Goals and Make Them Work!
Goals. Most people have a love-hate relationship with goals. They love them because they are such a great idea and a wonderful way to motivate us to achieve, as well as evaluate our progress, but hate them because for many, they more often than not go unattained and simply frustrate them. This isn't what goals should do!
How to Turn New Years Resolutions into New Year?s Results
Are you ready to learn how to finally turn your New Year's resolutions into New Year's results? The key word here is "new", because you want to create "new" results. You must analyze your old year that has passed and your future, which means do not think "re-run/replay" instead think about forging forward into the New Year. In order to create "New Year" results, you must decide to analyze, develop and implement new action steps.
Focus On Your Goals Without Envying Others
Many of us waste too much time envying others instead of getting on with our own goals and dreams. This is stupid to put it mildly.
This week's article assumes that you have chosen a goal, dream, or task for yourself. You may or may not have started implementing your step by step plans yet. Are you a bit shaky in your faith though? Maybe you have a tendency to doubt your ability to carry this thing out to completion. You need a support system that will hold you up when the road gets rocky.
Look Where Youre Going - And Keep An Eye On The Blind Spots!
I recently had the pleasure of motorcycle riding instruction from a friend, Tony, a professional racer. He was an outstanding instructor and provided some great experience-based insight into the more intricate details of motorcycle riding. But, the one thing that stuck in my mind was his comment of "always look where you're going." I had always assumed that this is what I did, but I found out that there is a big difference between "watching" and "looking" where you're going.
To Realize your Dreams, Focus on Significance, not Success
"The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success, but on significance." - Oprah Winfrey
Exploring Beneath The Surface
Unwanted feelings and thoughts are rich territory to dive beneath the surface for fresh insights that open the heart. Imagine for a moment that you are floating along on the ocean of feelings unwilling to accept that the choppy waves to your left signify anger. If you put on snorkeling gear and dive under them, you will see a whole new world.
