Goal Setting: Feeling Bad Part 3

Why should you not engage in solving your problem if you’re not yet ready? Well, it’s precisely because you’re not ready. If you’re not ready, then you’re not willing to do it. That means that you’d be doing it half heartedly and that would result to a mediocre solution which may not be enough to deal with the problem at hand. You don’t want that, right? If that happens, then you’d still go back to trying to solve this little hick that you encountered in actively achieving goals. Or, if you’re unlucky, it could even make the problem worse. I’m sure you get the point.

So then, what’s the next step to this process? Basically, all you need to do now is to think of a solution to your problem. If you find several, list them down and contemplate on which ones sound more logical for your problem and your set goals. If you can’t decide, call a friend and ask for their opinion. Then, once that’s decided, just go ahead and apply it. If it works, then good for you. If it doesn’t, try the other one.

Well then, good luck! 😀

Goal Setting: Feeling Bad

In life, we experience both fun and not so fun times whether we’re actively achieving goals or not. So when you’re trying to pursue your set goals and you’re in a not so fun situation, you also get a negative feeling and it can be sadness, worry, or despair. Whichever it is, here are the things that I suggest you do in order to get over this bad feeling.

First, as with all things, feel it. Be in that situation and feel that emotion. If you should feel happiness, then you should do the same for negative emotions. The reason is so that you will better understand what it’s like. In addition to that, you will also gain a better understanding of the more positive emotions if you get what it’s like to feel sadness, despair, or worry.

Next, find out why it happened. Search through your journal if you have one, or try to remember what you did and sort of rewind what happened in your mind. Once you found the reason why it happened, you can proceed to the next step.
