It happened to Jake this past week, and it can happen to you, too: not going by industry standards, because, well, they are too easy and simple to do. We need to follow industry standards because they were set up by people who know their game. Moreover, we need to make sure our response is going to be in a positive light.
Here’s what’s been covered, in a nutshell:
- When people advise you how to do certain things, they don’t do it because they are arrogant and want to control your life, they do it because they’ve been there and care for you.
- GFS or Goal Failure Syndrome has four causes: fear, no sense of urgency, a “don’t care” attitude and lack of support.
- There are two types of fear: the fear of losing something and the fear of not being enough.
- The latter one is more prominent and damaging: not enough resources, not enough money, not enough connections to achieve the things we strive for.
- Our goals need to have urgency incorporated in it. And they need to be big so that it scares us a bit.
- When you set such goals, you can either fail on yourself or you can feel better about yourself after you have achieved it.
- Failing on yourself is the most mind-boggling and senseless feeling ever, and you will not want to experience it again.
- Know why you set goals, how they affect you and others, how to set them.
- Share your goals with friends and family and people who care.
