Wanting to achieve a goal but feeling a bit stuck?


Have you ever wanted to achieve something but felt a bit "stuck"?
In order to achieve anything in life, there are 3 things to consider.

1  Do you have clear goals that resonate with your values. This is important for "direction and motivation".  It's the "why" in the equation. Why are you doing what you are doing?
2  Do you have the appropriate skills, resources, including mentorship to make it happen.  This gives you "confidence" to carry it through.  It's the "how and what" in the equation. 
3  Do you have "limiting beliefs" that is holding you back from achieving your goals.  Limiting beliefs like 

  • "I am not good enough" 
  • "If I fail, I am insignificant"
  • "If I fail, I will let people down"
  • "It cannot be done".  These are the common limiting beliefs that we have to overcome in order to realize our goals.

Coaching or counselling can help us to define number 1, 2 and 3 with 1 i.e. goal clarification being the first on the rank in my opinion.

It's important to note that number 3 i.e. limiting beliefs can hold us back from achieving our goals despite having clear goals, motivation and the ability to execute.  Limiting beliefs are like brakes that has to be released in order for us to move forward with consistent action.
