Let me be the first to tell you in the past I've set more goals than I've ever taken action on, I've failed more than I've won and while learning the hard way I've found 3 necessary tools to guarantee success when it comes to your goals.

Your goals have no action

Quite often its the simplest things that are the most overlooked, its easy to naturally bypass any and everything that you don't currently see as a challenge.  It's pretty funny, we've all heard that saying "if it was easy everyone would do it". That's the biggest lie ever, why? Because sometimes even "easy" takes effort.

One of the greatest abilities any human has is the ability to bring a mental image or thought into reality. I used to read a truckload of self help books and as a result I held myself back by naturally comparing my start to someone else's success. So start, get moving right now!

Your goals haven't been tested

If you go into anything without an upfront challenge, it doesn't mean one wont come later. Sometimes the snake doesn't attack at first, it studies its victim. Adversity usually presents itself when you feel the need to put your guard down. Trust me the last thing you want is to get comfortable when you need to be on your A-Game.

Sometimes life will give you the exam before the lesson. This is the beauty in whatever you're trying to pursue, why? Because challenges can break you or save you. If our actions remain the same your paycheck will follow suit. Now is the time to start seeing challenges as camouflaged upgradable opportunities.

You have unhealthy goals. 

You have a check up for your doctor and dentist, so why wouldn't you have a check up for your goals as well? How far are you going to go in the wrong direction until you realize you need to turn around and go the other way? Our most precious commodity is time, because you never get it back.

Having regular check ups helps in holding you accountable. When's the last time you've measured the health and realistic ability of your current goals? Give your goals and actions a check up!

Final words 

Setting any goal is no different than planting a seed. The process isn't difficult at all, my two year old can put a seed in dirt. Anyone can create a "wishful" goal or action however, maintaining it, watching it grow and duplicating the process is a completely different deal altogether.
