Why do we fail at achieving goals?

Financial Success 101: How Our Brain Works In The Goal Attainment Process
Be the Boss of Your Brain
If you’re not getting the results that you want, the problem is that you may be having a lack of clarity within the visual cortex of your brain), which helps you visualize your goal into a concrete thought.
It is essential to exercise the visual cortex so you can send a visual of what you want to create to your “idea center” which is on your left prefrontal cortex. This is where the sense of self is established.
This Brain Exercise is what we call, “Cognitive Priming.” It will help you to practice and improve the genius part of your brain, be clear with what you want to achieve big things, and bring your vision to reality.

Visualization can possibly attract positive things into your life in an incredible way, but often, it will attract big opportunities, or make you aware that there are lots of opportunities for you.
It will open doors, but you have to take advantage of these opportunities.
This type of visualization can ignite the emotions, drive motivation, and make you feel pumped, positive and inspired. This is more effective than just visualizing your financial goals.
Meditation increases self-awareness. Many meditative practices also draw practitioners into being more aware of themselves, including the state of their bodies and the nature of their wandering minds.
Often through that self-awareness, they find a greater understanding of why they do the things they do. This can help those who meditate become more productive in the workplace
Self-reflection and Mindfulness
Mindfulness is all about going through life with purpose and paying attention to the present moment.
Know that you are capable and empowered to create that feeling in your life through all of your financial decisions, big and small.
Thoughtful spending is one of the best ways to achieve financial mindfulness.

Write it down!
According to a study on goal setting, people who write down their goals are more likely to achieve it than those who don’t.
Visualizing your goals happens on two levels: external storage and encoding.
External storage is when you’re storing the information contained in your goal in a location (just like a paper) that is very easy to get and you can easily pull it out to review at any time.
You could even post that paper in your bulletin board, on your refrigerator, or to anywhere you can easily see it.
It doesn’t take professional help, a doctor or a neuroscientist to know if you will remember something much better if you’re staring at a visual cue each day.
But there’s another deeper situation happening that happends when you write your goals. It is the Encoding.
Encoding is the natural process wherein the things we perceive travel to our brain’s hippocampus where they’re analyzed.
From there, all of our decisions are made about what gets stored in our long-term memory station and also which one gets discarded. This is why writing improves that information encoding process.
This also explains that when you write your pointers on your exam, you will get a higher chance to remember the important details than just reciting the information.
In other words, when you write your goals or any important information down it has a significantly greater chance of being remembered.
Imagine Yourself When You Achieve Those Goals.
It really helps.
When you see yourself living in your dream house, driving your dream car and living your best life is enough to maintain the desire to make it a reality.
How can we do this?
The first step is to just visualize what you want.
Imagine yourself achieving them.
If we can begin to imagine ourselves achieving our goals, we are one step closer to achieving them.
Verbalizing our goals, by either drafting them down or sharing them with your husband, parents or to a friend and then constantly reaffirming ourselves having achieved those goals, is essential to achieving them.
