Everybody wants to be successful in life, but only a small fraction of us go on to achieve what we truly wanted in life, why is that?

When it comes to living a successful life and achieving what we want, most of us set goals, we follow the advice from gurus and write down what we want to achieve, unfortunately, most people’s goals do not materialize.

Goal-setting is powerful and the technique can help you to achieve greater heights in life. But, let’s be honest, most people who use these techniques will end up never accomplishing what they want. There is more to it than just writing what you want and working to get there. 

I’ve noticed that the people who fail to accomplish their goals were missing 3 factors on their path to get there.

Below are the 3 main factors you need to adhere to on your journey, to make sure you ultimately reach your goals.

“Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.”

– Tony Robbins

3 Most Important Factors You Need  To Reach Your Goals

1. Your Intention Must Be Strong

First, most people fail to achieve their goals because their intention is not strong enough. They procrastinate and they put things off. They delay taking actions and put their goals to a later date.

If you want to achieve your goals, your intention must be strong. You must have a strong reason behind to support and push your forward.

Without a compelling reason to act, you will never do anything about your goals. You must ask yourself, “Why do I want to achieve this goal?”

If your reason is not strong enough, it will never create the strong intention for you to act. However, when your reason to accomplishing your goal is strong, you will create a powerful intention that makes you unstoppable.

I’m sure you’ve have seen people who tried to quit smoking for years but failed. Until, one day, either their health became critical or they got pregnant, at which point, they stopped smoking completely.

When your health is at risk, you will do whatever it takes to stop smoking. The same applies to your goals. When your reason to achieve your target is strong and emotional, you will do whatever it takes to make it come true.

Takeaway: Find out why you want to achieve your goals. Give yourself compelling, strong and emotional reasons for why you must accomplish them no matter what it takes.

2. You Must Think About Your Goals Daily

Do you know that the main difference between successful and ordinary people is? Successful people think about what they want most of the time while ordinary people think about other stuff most of the time?

You will become what you think about. So what do you think about most of the time?

If you are thinking about achieving your goals, living your dreams and what you can do to achieve them, great, you are on your way there.

However, most people do not think about their goals and their dreams. They spend time thinking about what they want for lunch, where they can go this week-end, or what movie to watch tonight.

Ordinary people spend time thinking how to enjoy their weekends while extraordinary people spend that time building their empire or planning on how to reach their goals.

Jack Ma from Alibaba was once told by his wife that he did not belong to his wife, but he belongs to Alibaba. This is because Jack couldn’t stop thinking about his business, his goals and his company every moment of the day.

Successful people are obsessed with what they want, they can’t help but think about their targets and dreams most of the time. This is what makes them successful.

Takeaway: You have to consciously think about what you want to accomplish in your life. You can do so by practicing daily goal setting and review your progress each day. Create a vision board and imagine your success every day.

3. You Must Be Consistent

Finally, most people are not consistent with what they want in life. They give up, they change their plans and they jump from one project to another way too fast.

You have to understand that amazing results and remarkable success will not come to you overnight. You have to work on it day in and day out and move forward each day to get to where you want to be.

Rome was not built in a day. Bill Gates did not become a billionaire overnight and Warren Buffett did not earn a million from his investment within 24 hours. Not when he started, at least.

Therefore, stop looking for quick fixes and shortcuts to achieve the success you want. Plan your strategy and take the necessary actions to reach your goals.

You will have to be consistent with what you do every day until you produce the result you want. It is the small steps that matter. What you do every day is more important than what you do once in a while.

This is why you need to develop empowering habits because your habits are what will shape your life.

If you study the life of all the remarkable people out there, you will see that every one of them achieved their amazing feat in the long-run.

Extraordinary people achieve great results because they choose to be consistent and stay on with their dreams when everyone else gives up. 

The difference between extraordinary and ordinary is the little “extra” – the extra effort, the extra hours, the extra determination, the extra commitment, etc.

Thus, be consistent with your goals and your dreams. Stay with them and do whatever it takes until you reach them.

Takeaway: Commit to taking at least 5 small actions that will move you toward your goals each day. If you follow this advice, you will accomplish at least 1825 small victories in a year. And these small victories will accumulate and build up to bring you the extraordinary success you want.


Goal setting works because you work on it. It will never work for you if you are not willing to do the work and take action.

Remember, you must have a strong intention, think about your goals and work on them consistently to achieve them.
