How did 2020 go for you? Are you proud of yourself? Did you achieve the goals you set for yourself at the beginning of the year?

If not, don’t feel bad, you are not alone: 2020 was a really trying year that tested everyone at all levels in different aspects of life. Moreover, Research shows that 92% of people don’t achieve their goals. People aren’t happy with the past year and want to make the next year better. They want to make it the year they finally achieve their goals and transform their lives.

Studies have shown that it usually comes down to one of these 4 reasons why people  weren’t successful at achieving their set out goals.

  • Lack of Clarity: They didn’t set clear enough goals including a proper action plan and an effective strategy to achieve them.
  • Lack of Commitment: They didn’t fully commit to doing whatever it takes to achieve their goal and failed to hold themselves accountable.
  • Lack of Focus: They didn’t direct enough time, energy and mental focus to their goals and got distracted by less important things.
  • Lack of Confidence: They failed to identify and overcome the self-limiting beliefs, fears, and self-doubt that were holding them back mentally.

By now you probably know the reason why you weren’t able to achieve one or more of your goals this year. So to make sure you don’t repeat the same mistakes in 2021 let’s shed more light on the most important question to ask yourself when setting goals.

You’ve probably heard of the SMART goal-setting technique and know that the right way to set your goals is to make them:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Attainable
  • Realistic
  • Timely

However, the SMART method has one major flaw: It only teaches you how to set your goals the right way but not how to set the right goals in the first place.

Thus, the most important question you need to ask yourself when setting goals is not WHAT, WHEN or HOW but WHY?

Take a few minutes to take each of your 2021 goals through the following questions:

  • Why is it so important for you to achieve this goal? Is this really what you want?
  • How will you feel when you get there? Is there a different way to achieve this feeling?

These questions will make sure that you are setting goals that you are intrinsically motivated to achieve and don’t pursue out of the wrong reasons (e.g. because all your friends are doing it but you don’t really care about it).

So whenever you are stressed out  by the fact that you are deviating from your goal or target or going through a lot, remember that Sudrex Headache & Fever gives you fast relief and sets you right back on track. #ReliefMoment #WinYourDay
