THE GOAL MYTH
Why (almost) everything you’ve been taught about goal-setting is wrong and what you really need to do, to get what you really want.
From a young age we are told that we need to set goals and achieve them if we want to live a happy and successful life.
But the reality is most people fail to achieve their goals, most of the time… and it doesn’t feel good.
They blame themselves for lacking motivation, commitment or staying power.
But what if we are not the problem?
What if the real problem lies with the nature of goals themselves: how we set them, when we set them, and why we set them.
I call the focus on goal achievement and the resulting sense of failure so many experience, The Goal Myth and I believe that buying into this myth causes you stress, erodes your self-esteem and ultimately leaves you feeling bad about yourself.
There has to be a better way…
In this engaging talk, the audience will learn:
- Why the majority of what you’ve been taught about goal-setting is wrong, and the right way to think about goals instead.
- The real reasons why people fail to achieve their goals and what you can do about it.
- Why goals are only one way to get what you want and how to work out if and when you should use them.
- What you really need to do when you want to achieve something, so that nothing can stop you from making it happen.
Plus you’ll learn:
- The real difference between quitting and walking away.
- How to pivot in a way that keeps you on track.
- How to plan for the future in uncertain times.
The Goal Myth will show you how to achieve your boldest ambitions with a lot less stress and much greater ease.
