11 Things People Say When They are Confused About Why They’re Failing

Posted In Goals // 0

I recently wrote a post about why some people find achieving goals easy – while others struggle.

In it, I share how people who don’t know how to create often have theories for why they’re not achieving their goals.

Often these theories are based on concepts that ‘sound’ really good.

And given most have come out of the positive thinking, personal development and New Age movements, if we’re into that kind of thing, they seem like they’d be good advice.

Why that’s a problem, is not that they may have bought into ideas that may not actually be true….

After all, if they knew the truth about how to (actually) create, they’d have not needed to buy into these incorrect ideas and concepts in the first place.

Why it’s a problem, at least for their goals anyway, is that they don’t know how to create…  

… And in the absence of knowing how, they grab onto new ideas that come past because they ‘sound plausible’ and are shared by people who seem like they know what they’re talking about…

… and so, they remain confused, with no access to bringing their goals to life. 

Just to be clear, I am not poking my finger at those espousing the theories.

Hell, I used to be one of them.

That’s how I know that they’re typically caring people, most of whom don’t realise what they’re sharing is factually wrong and misleading.  Typically, out of the goodness of their hearts, they’re simply repeating what they themselves have been told.

In this post, I share 11 common things people say when they’re struggling with their goals that demonstrate they are confused about how creation actually works. 

The reason I’m sharing this is that I want to help people who want to succeed to see where they’re going wrong.

And to help them to understand what they need to actually focus on to create what matters to them.

11 Things People Say When They Are Struggling With Their Goals

Here’s the kinds of things people who are confused about how creation actually happens, say, when sharing their theories about why they’re struggling with their goals.

  • “I need to believe in the outcome. But I don’t trust it will happen for me – or that it’s possible for me. So it won’t.”
  • “It’s important to think positive. But I have some negative thoughts that are working against me. But I’m working on it. I do affirmations every day.”
  • “I’m not taking enough action.”
  • “I want to lose weight. But I’m obviously just not committed enough.”
  • “I wasn’t brought up to believe in myself. My upbringing is my problem. “
  • “Self love is important to creating what you want in life. I don’t love myself enough. But I’m working on it.”
  • “If only I could get rid of my negative beliefs, my goal would be so much easier.”
  • “I’m not confident enough/motivated enough/fill-in-the-blank-with-random-positive-quality enough.”
  • “I’m working on myself, but it’s happening very slowly.”
  • “I’ve heard it’s important to align with the Universe. But I don’t think I’m lined up. But I’m trying.”
  • “I’ve tried manifesting/the Law of Attraction, but I just can’t make it work for me.”

These kinds of statements demonstrate the ideas they have bought into. Ideas that have sent them down rabbit holes. And prevent them creating what they want.

Big love to you + to creating what matters to you!
