While setbacks, challenges, and difficult circumstances may cause feelings of devastation. It’s important to remember that you have the capacity to overcome adversity. Find a path forward and reach your destination. Remember devastation is not your destination. This is just a bump in the road. 

Here we outlined the most common traps that could prevent you from reaching your goals and strategies that will also help you avoid them.

  • Putting your goals off until ‘someday.’

If a goal is important to you, create a timeline. Even if you can’t start working on it today, at least tell yourself when you can tackle it. 

  • Waiting to take action until you ‘feel’ ready.

Change your behavior first. Sometimes, the emotions change later. Take action and you may gain the ambition you need to keep going.

  • Not anticipating the tough times.

Think about potential pitfalls that you might face and develop a plan for dealing with those times when you might be tempted to give up. When you have a plan, you’ll feel more confident in your ability to keep going.

  • Viewing mistakes as failures.

Recognize that you’re going to mess up sometimes. But rather than declare yourself a dismal failure, use your energy to create a plan to get back on track.

  • Not making your goal a priority.

Identify one step you’re going to take every day and put it in your calendar. You’re more likely to go to the gym, apply for a job, or spend one hour researching your new business idea if you establish time to do it.

  • Giving up before you see results.

Just because you can’t see results, doesn’t mean your efforts are wasted. You need to stick to your goals longer than you might think before you experience lasting change.

  • Sabotaging yourself just before the finish line.

Think about past goals you’ve struggled to reach or those you’ve failed to attain. Be honest with yourself about your feelings and be on the lookout for warning signs that you might be throwing in the towel.

  • Setting your sights too high.

Focusing too much on a big goal can be overwhelming. Establish short-term objectives and celebrate each milestone along the way.

Devastation can feel overwhelming when viewed as a whole. Break down the situation into smaller, manageable steps or tasks. By focusing on one step at a time, you can make progress and gradually move forward.

Remember, while devastation may cause pain and hardship, it does not define your entire journey. It is not your destination.
