Happy vs. Successful: Are Your Goals Making You Miserable?

Aloha,

 

Everybody and their grandmother (and probably your grandmother) will tell you that setting goals is the key to success.

 

I was taught goal-setting at an early age and I’ve taught goal-setting and goal-getting to thousands of my NLP and Huna students.

 

And for the most part, students get really stoked as they work with goals and see the amazing results they can create.

 

But every once in a while, a student approaches me and says that they hate goals, and that goals just make their lives miserable and stressful!

 

Huh?

 

How could pursuing something you want make you feel lousy?

 

I’d never had that experience so I wandered through some books and articles to figure it out.

 

Read my latest Psychology Today blog to learn 7 goal-setting mistakes that are costing you your happiness and success, and what to do about them!

 

If this article helps you, please share it on Facebook and help us get the word out. 🙂

 

Mahalo!
Dr. Matt
