Sabotaging your big goals?

Today I want to talk about goals. More specifically, about setting bigger goals. 

The fact that you are reading this message from me means you are likely interested or at least curious about moving past your current reach or impact in business, to really stretch and create bigger results.

More of the same, as you know, produces more of the same. If you’d like to achieve new big results in your business, then you must strive higher.

There’s a sign that hangs in my office. It says, “You only live once. You might as well be a badass!” That’s how I feel about business and the impact that my business is here to make. 

If we’re going to play this game of business, I believe we should play big.

What I’ve discovered from working with thousands of entrepreneurs over the years is that business owners can be very hesitant to set big stretch goals. I’ve seen it over and over again, even though at first, this came as a surprise to me. (“Didn’t they come to me to learn how to grow their business significantly? If so, why the resistance?”)

I’ve narrowed down this resistance to 4 reasons:

  1. They can’t see how it could actually happen when it’s just them. Because they haven’t figured it all out by reverse-engineering exactly how it would happen, it feels too improbable. They just can’t see reaching a 2X goal, a 5X goal, etc.
  2. They believe that they would have to work too hard or longer hours to achieve it. Perhaps you’re at a place right now where you’re already overwhelmed and you’re thinking, “How can I possibly create even bigger numbers in my business? I will have no life.” The belief that “more clients equals more problems” keeps them playing small.
  3. They feel alone with the idea of getting it done. Even if they have a team, everything rests on them now anyway, so how could they reach even two times a bigger goal? It just seems overwhelming, like they’re the only dragon slayer. So they stay stuck doing more of the same, instead of going for exponential growth.
  4. They would feel embarrassed of what others would think if they didn’t actually reach the goal. What would the team think, what would clients think? It would be embarrassing. So it’s better not to set a stretch goal, right? This keeps them focused on building their business in incremental steps, rather than big leaps.

Ask yourself these questions about where you are perhaps resisting creating a bigger stretch goal. 

  • Is it that you can’t see how you would get it done?
  • You don’t know how you would reach a two to four times stretch goal?
  • Would you see yourself having to work too hard to make it happen? 
  • Would you feel too alone and overwhelmed in making it happen? 
  • Would you be embarrassed if you didn’t reach your goal? 

Take some time to think about this and get your unedited answers down on paper where you can see them. It’s important to record how you feel now, so you can revisit these pages after you’ve set those big goals AND accomplished (or even surpassed) them!It is absolutely possible for you to grow your business while regaining your life. You can experience much much bigger results, when you know what to do to get there faster.
