The 92% Trap

January 9, 2019

 cry for help

Well, here we are. Springing into action to make 2019 the best year ever, right?

If you’re like most business owners, you have your plan for the year in place…or mostly in place. You’ve set your goals and you know where you’re going. The trick is getting there. Without falling into the trap.

What trap? The trap that swallows your achievement, eats away at your success and keeps you from having the life you want.

The trap of giving up too easily. It’s a trap that 92% of people fall into. That’s right. An incredible 92% of people who set New Year’s goals never actually achieve them according to research by the University of Scranton.

People abandon their goals when they are:

  • fuzzy or unclear
  • too complicated or too numerous to keep track of
  • unrealistic
  • not meaningful or connected to a higher purpose
  • too open-ended, not urgent enough.

How many times have you fallen into that 92% trap with your goals? Me, too.  More times than I want to admit. But that’s in the past.

Before I learned to set SMART goals and do what it takes to be in the 8% that reach their goals year after year. There’s a process that leads to goal achievement every time…if you follow it faithfully.

A process built on a plan that takes just a few hours to create. And just a few minutes each week to make sure you’re on target.

Sounds good, right? That’s what you’ll learn in our How to Reach Goal Achievement in 2019 program. Registration is open now, but only until midnight Thursday, January 10th as the program begins on Friday.

Stay out of the 92% trap.

Go forth and do great things,
