The Biggest Mistake 91% Of People Make With Their Goals (& How You Can Avoid It)

October 28, 2019

Now before you say ANYTHING! Haha! I already's been 2 WHOLE WEEKS and I missed you! Lol. Hit play to hear why I went M.I.A and what I'm doing to prevent this from happening again! Oh, and by the way, you should probably join my email list...that way you will be in the loop no matter what happens here on the blog! Sign up NOW!

A lot of people ask me all the time, "Tee, how can I turn my goals into reality? What is the secret to achieving my goals? How can I overcome my obstacles so that I can get big results..." and the list goes on. Want to know how I respond? I turn to them and instead of answering their question I hit them with another one. "Do you have a plan?" This question catches them by surprise and almost everyone says "not really"

Many people treat success like it's a coincidence. They know it takes time to see progress but they don't have a plan for how they will use that time. Then for some reason when they don't get the results they want they are surprised, disappointed, and confused.

Maybe you want to start a business, grow your audience, generate more sales, or create a new product/service. That's cool and I'm sure you can make it happen, but my question for you is do you have a plan?

the hard reality

Only 8% of people who set goals actually achieve them? That is CRAZY! Have you ever wondered why some people are able to get extraordinary results with their goals while others struggle year after year? What about why some people can very easily create the life of their dreams while others can't even lift their dream off the ground?

Maybe you're currently struggling with a goal that you set at the beginning of this year and you can't seem to figure out why you haven't made any progress. Or maybe, you've been struggling with the same goal for YEARS and you can't seem to get ahead. If you are facing any of these realities then my friend, I GOT YOU!

The 8%

Everyone sets a goal with good intentions. They want to improve their quality of life. They want to be healthier, make more money, have a bigger impact in the world, and so on. However, out of this big pool of dreamers, only 8% actually hit their goals. This means if there was a group of 100 people who set a goal for the year only 8 people would have actually gotten to experience their goal in a real tangible way! WHAT!? That is mind-blowing!

I believe that achieving your goal is your birthright! There is literally nothing physically stopping you from turning your goals into reality and yet most people, that is, 91% of people F.A.I..L! Why?

The 91%

The number one mistake 91% of people are making when it comes to achieving their goals is they are trying to figure it out and put all of the pieces together by themselves! First of all, this is the BIGGEST time and money waster in the world!

Most people think they can read a TON of books and watch youtube videos then wa-lah they are experts and have everything they need to hit their big crazy goals, but this is simply not how it works. Trust me I've done it before!

I remember

I used to spend HOURS reading self-help books and watching youtube videos trying to figure out the best way to hit my goals in the least amount of time. I would take all of the free information I found online and try to put it together to create a system that would help me to crush my goals easier. It was so time-consuming and let's be got me nowhere.

I had no certainty or confidence that my made-up plan would work. After trying and failing with so many different strategies I thought maybe I just haven’t found the right one. I had information overload and felt frustrated because nothing I was doing was working. Do you ever feel that way?

At the end of all my searching, I was tired and just about ready to give up on my goals (thank God I didn't or else you would not be reading this right now)! I was more confused than I was when I got started and now I had less time and less money because I wasted it doing things the hard way and getting 0 return.


You know that cliche "your mess becomes your messages"...well, that's exactly what happened for me! After struggling for YEARS with the same goals trying to figure out what I was doing wrong I decided to try something different. I stepped up my game from self-help books and free youtube videos and committed to getting results. This commitment included working with a professional because let's face it, I did not know what I was doing!

They helped me to see what was keeping me from my goals (clearly I wasn't seeing it) and they showed me how to set and achieve goals in a way that worked with my crazy busy lifestyle. Since then I've gone on to master the art of setting and achieving big goals and I developed my own strategy which is what I practice and teach my clients to do now. This strategy is called creating realistic goals!

If you want a simple, proven way to hit your goals and build momentum you need to start creating realistic goals. This is the fastest way to become the master of your life and learn how to implement your goals one step at a time. You will stop being busy "trying" to get results and you will actually start hitting your goals. The best of all is you will have the power to create exactly what you want in your life and business instead of settling for whatever life throws at you! You move from being a victim to becoming your own hero. You stop waiting for life to get better and you start working a proven system to make it better. I'm telling you after a few weeks of using realistic goals I started seeing progress like crazy!

What got you here won't get you here

Albert Einstien said, "the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results". Is this what you're doing? I'm going to tell you right now, busting your butt and working harder to hit your goals while using the same broken system is not going to help you achieve the success you want. The 8% of people who hit their goals know that the way to progress is to create realistic goals.

Results come from action. When you're stuck in information overload, fear, and the busyness of life you are not taking any action that will lead you closer to your dreams! The 8% of people who hit their goals know that the key to their success is in their ability to follow through on their goal and the only way to ensure they will follow through is if they make their plan REALISTIC.

You need timelines so you can stay on track with the big picture, milestones so you can track your progress, and deadlines so you can stay in sync with your goal for the year. Achieving your goal becomes SO easy when you have a reliable system, but the real secret to this is when you learn this system you're able to build momentum and get even BIGGER results! Who doesn't want that? Lol


If you are a part of this community of people who turn their goals into reality then I know if you've been making this mistake it ends today. Wasting time and money trying to do it yourself when all you need to do is s create realistic goals is a no-brainer!
