If you have goals you want to achieve, there are steps you need to take to get there. Getting to where you want to be in life isn't easy. If you aren't achieving your goals, you like many others might be falling into several traps.

Connie Jordan, Las Vegas CEO of Anchor Adversity and Professional Life Coach, is known as an energetic and positive professional who takes pride in supporting others as they engage in self-development to embrace change. Below, Jordan highlights four essential reasons that are hindering your goals and how to overcome these obstacles.

1. You only do the bare minimum

Achieving goals requires hard work. If you want to write a book, but you only write a line a day, it's going to take longer than it should to achieve this goal. In fact, doing the bare minimum can hinder your frame of mind as well. Because you're making such slow progress, you may bore of the project or feel as though your efforts aren't paying off. If you push yourself to do more than you think you can, you're going to make progress and achieve your goal.

2. You don't deal with distractions

Distractions aren't hard to find. The television, phone, social media, and even chores will draw your attention away from what you want to be doing. A task you usually hate will suddenly become more desirable if it helps you avoid the hard work needed to achieve your goal. The problem with letting distractions control your time is that you put off achieving what you want. It's important to remember that just because something distracts you doesn't mean it needs your immediate attention. It's up to you to ignore them. Turn off notifications for texts so that they don't distract you while you're working. Check texts during your break. Creating new habits and patterns will help you to be more successful.

3. You don't have a schedule

Having a schedule can help significantly in not only achieving your goals and also reducing distractions. If you schedule your work and breaks, you will have specific times for checking texts, watching your favorite television show, and chores. A schedule will give you more uninterrupted work time. Creating a schedule is the easy part. Sticking to it will take time to get used to, so don't be too hard on yourself if you fall into old habits in the beginning. The more you work on it, the better you'll get.

4. You aren't open to learning

No matter how good you are at what you do, there is always more to learn. Things can change so rapidly these days that it's important to stay up-to-date on what's happening. You may need to upgrade your skills by taking a course or reading up on the subject. Learning doesn't only occur in the classroom. You can learn by talking to other people in the same business, reading, and exploring the plethora of information online. If you aren't willing to learn, you may hinder yourself from achieving your dreams.

Achieving your goals is possible. If you've attempted to accomplish a goal for a while with little success, you may be falling into common traps. To succeed, you must be willing to break old habits and patterns.

How Happiness In A Relationship Is So Important

What is the happiness and love that we as individuals deserve when it comes to our relationship?

158

It's different for each of us. Some prefer being showered in gifts, being showed off on social media, bragged about to family and friends. But, what is the one thing that all of those have in common?

That would be the unmistakable amount of love your significant other has for you, that they will do anything to show you that they love you unconditionally. We all show our love for one another in various ways. I for one love being shown the love someone else has for me in small things they do.

It could be a simple 'good morning love' text message or even just a hug out of the blue. Knowing that someone cares so deeply about you is one of life's greatest gifts. Knowing that another human being loves you and wants to be with you, it makes us drunk off of love and our heads float up to the stars.

However, when we don't feel that love, that connection, that reassurance from our significant other that they love and care for us back, it can be an extremely overwhelming and a lonely feeling.

We start looking for those feelings and connections elsewhere. In our friends for reassurance if we look good or blowing up their phones for attention.

We start caring about if other people find us attractive or not, we relish in compliments that other people give us. We start looking for that happiness elsewhere. It's not because you stop loving your significant other or stop caring about them, but we as humans need to feel important and like we are needed by another person.

When you stop letting your significant other know how much you care about them or showcasing your love for them, even if it's a simple gesture like holding their hand or holding the door open for them, they will begin to look elsewhere.

Now I am in no way saying that they will cheat on you, but your relationship and their attitude and feelings towards you will never be the same until you start showing them how much they mean to you just as much as they do for you. I don't condone cheaters or staying in a relationship that you are not happy in.

Yes, some relationships go through hard times like distance or a traumatic event. However, the way I see it is if you entered into the relationship, to begin with, you obviously cared about that person a lot and if they show you that they care and love you for the person you are and your past then they deserve the same in return from you.

Relationships are not always easy, they take time, determination, communication, compromise, and love to stay afloat. If one of you isn't willing to give your all and put forth the effort needed then it will never work. A relationship can't be successful if it is only one-sided.

Despite peoples life's being busy on a day to day basis, you need to always find time for your significant other. Because at the end of the day when things hit the fan, your significant other should be the one that will be there no matter what and always be by your side.

All in all, you need to treat each other the way in which you would want to be treated in a relationship and treat them the way they should be treated despite whatever chaos is going on in the world about you. Love is the conquer of all and should never be thrown around or not taken seriously.

Loving someone else is a gift we are given by God and never taken lightly.

Robb Misso, Award-winning CEO, Describes 7 Great Techniques Small Business Owners Use to Hire Top Talent

Discovering premiere talent is no easy task, but it's one of the best investments you can make for the future of your business.

Hiring great employees is a difficult task, but hiring them for a small business or startup is far more difficult. Not only is your budget more limited, but you're also looking for a more specific kind of person. Working in a small business is inherently more difficult due to the flatter structure and greater responsibilities, so not only do you need someone skilled, you need people who can thrive under pressure. By focusing on these seven techniques detailed by Robb Misso, the CEO of DMS and a John C Maxwell Executive Council member, you can find the right people to hire for your company.

1. Focus on Brand Development from the Start

Attracting top talent for your small business is difficult because you have no branding at the start. Some people grow up thinking about working for global corporations because they have an expectation of how it would be to work for them, either due to a positive company culture, the impact they have on the world, or both. To get people to want to work for you, your business must have that same appeal. Develop a strong brand from the start and you'll make things easier for yourself.

2. Challenge Them

To get the best people, you have to offer the best projects. Top talent generally doesn't want to waste their time on something that bores them. Give them interesting projects, stimulate their minds and imagination, and they'll come in through the door.

3. Create a Small Business with Intent

Just making a small business to make money isn't enough, though it's a good start. You must have a greater goal in mind. You must have a vision. It's that vision that will drive people with passion to work for you. You must also learn how to present that vision and mission to people in the best possible way.

4. Go Out and Meet People Constantly

When you're looking to hire more people, the best thing to do is keep meeting new people. Go out to events and meet-ups and networking conferences and talk to people. Not only will you meet more potential employees, you'll also get to develop your brand and talk to potential partners and investors.

5. Look to Your Community

There's nothing like a consumer when it comes to criticism. No one is more critical than someone who bought your offering. Chances are, parts of your community are skilled workers. Why not hire them? They're already invested in your product, making them great potential hires. In some instances, such as positions for your sales force, their eagerness can make up for their lack of initial skill.

6. Look to Other Parts of the Globe

Your small business may have limited capital and reach, but the Internet has made it easier to find remote workers than ever before. While you won't have the comfort and intimacy of face-to-face interaction, they can give your small business skills you can't find locally. It can also end up being cheaper, especially if you just need them for specific tasks.

7. Create a Positive Workplace

A great workplace environment doesn't just help you keep employees, it'll help you get them. "When they first walk into your office for their interview, they should be met with smiling faces and people who are genuinely enjoying their work," stated Robb Misso. Nothing pushes away top talent like anger, frustration, and a general feeling of negativity. Developing a positive workplace is about having the right company culture, as well as having a comfortable physical space that people won't mind spending long hours in.

Hiring top talent for your small business is no easy task, but it's not impossible either. You just have to do it mindfully. You can't just send out fliers and expect great people to walk in. Develop your brand and your company culture from the start. Meet as many people as possible to expand your fishing waters. It's time-consuming, but consider it an investment in your small business's future.
