Set Realistic Goals!
Be Realistic – This is also the R in SMART of SMART Goals fame. It therefore is a very important step.
Why is it so important? Setting up unrealistic goals is setting yourself up for failure.
If the Goal Can’t be Achieved, it likely won’t.
There is an old saying quoted by many Motivational Speakers, Goal Setting Gurus and such. “What the Mind Can Conceive, It Can Achieve.”
However, the quote from Napoleon Hill actually states:
Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.
