Whether it's a New Year's resolution, or you're in the mood to set some long and short-term goals, have you ever wondered if there's a right way to achieve them?
If you're someone who likes to take time when you set out to accomplish goals, or if you're someone who adds too much to the list of what you want to achieve, could you be going about it in the wrong way?
Usually when a particular goal comes in mind, you may have already written a plan of action in order for you to stay focused on what's ahead. You might encounter a few bumps throughout your journey and eventually decide it's no longer a goal you wish to pursue.
Elders and others in your life may have told you to always keep a positive attitude, especially during rough times. But, is a positive attitude the right motivational tool to have while goal setting?
Ultimately, is there a right way to reach your goals?
Gabriele Oettingen, PhD, shares why your goals may be unfulfilled, as well as if there is a right way to reach your goals.
