For every mistake you make, surely you blame yourself, even just a little bit, for doing something you shouldn’t have. Now, even though it’s just a little bit of blame, that still has a lot of effect on your confidence. To avoid this from affecting you gravely, forgive yourself. Tell yourself that’s absolutely alright to have made a mistake. Everything will turn out alright in the end. You can fix it. Also, just treat this situation as a learning experience. After all, the only way you can totally avoid mistakes in goal setting is to experience it firsthand.
What do you do if you realize that the you no longer want to pursue your current set goals? Do you really stop? Maybe. First of all, you need to stop whatever you’re doing and self reflect. Why do you need to do this? The reason is so that you will find out your true feelings and if what you’re feeling is indeed what you want to happen.
Basically, during the self reflection, what you want to find out are your feelings and what you really want to happen with your life. So, ask yourself the appropriate questions. Then, write them down on paper so that you can conduct a proper review. Then, write down several reasons why achieving goals, your current goals, is not what you want to do right now. Also, write down what will happen if you stop. Essentially pros and cons.
Once you’re done with that, the next step is to thoroughly examine the items you’ve written. If you feel that stopping seems to be better, then hold on to that decision for a while. Consult a friend and ask if your current life goals are worth the wait or worth ending right now. If you get a yes, then perhaps it’s right to stop. If not, and you feel the same, then don’t stop and just focus on giving yourself motivation to keep pushing forward.
