We know that even the best goal in the world means little without action. Another variable that can be missed is that our minds are wired to welcome and resist change.
When we set goals, we become attached to how the path to the goal will look. Then, when we encounter obstacles, we don't feel like sticking to the goal.
Setting a goal releases dopamine and inspires you to take action.
Dopamine is high when we set a goal and again when the end is in sight. The greater the reward, the bigger the dopamine spike. However, in the middle phase, dopamine is absent, explaining why you feel less motivated.
