It may be spooky outside, but it can be downright terrifying inside with so much we want to do and so many things that keep us from doing them. To combat this, we come up with a plan and are stopped dead in our tracks by the scariest thing about setting goals.

It’s probably something that’s haunting you right now.

So Many Great Ideas

If you’re like most people, you have a ton of great ideas, that idea for a year-round water park in Maine, not withstanding.

You’ve had so many great ideas for projects, games with friends, positive interactions with the kids and more, that you couldn’t write them all out if you tried. You are an idea machine!

You want to make them real, but then you come across the scariest thing about setting goals.

So Many Failed Projects

As you think back on all the projects you started, you will notice something we all see when we look back – a lot of failed projects. Those are the things that feed the fear monster.

No one sets out on a goal knowing it will succeed and says “nah. I’m good.” If you wanted to accomplish something and knew you couldn’t fail, you’d do it. Unfortunately those failed attempts are the things that feed the fear – that feed the scariest thing about setting goals.
