I’m hearing so many opinions and advice out there about how people should approach 2021 goals.
Here’s the chatter:
- F*ck Resolutions, just choose 1 word of the year
- Create SMART goals instead
- Set goals based off of how you want to feel instead of what you want to do
- Make sure to create that vision board
- It’s all about time management
And unfortunately, every piece of this advice is missing a VALUABLE step that’s overlooked 99% of the time. It’s missing the secret ingredient to actually reaching your goals.
Here’s the deal:
It doesn’t matter what adjective you use to “code” your desires for 2021 … you can call it an intention, a goal, a unicorn dream, whatever. It’s a DESIRE. That’s what matters.
Are you reverse engineering your goals on paper with goal dates?AWESOME!
Choosing an intention to be “joyful” and “present” in everything you do? AWESOME!
Taking an audit of your schedule and creating your ideal day for better time management? AWESOME!
Creating a masterpiece of a vision board that should win an Addy Award? AWESOME!
These are all great. I agree with them.
But most of these exercises are driven by your conscious mind and are EXTERNAL actions.
The real question is:
DO YOU BELIEVE you will?
Are you BEING the person right now to put the plans in motion?
Are you ENJOYING the process? Or pushing and pulling?
HOW will you allow the carefully curated vision board come to life?
Most people don’t realize that it’s our SELF IMAGE that’s the core driver of any major shifts, changes, and goals we want to create.
The reason why we don’t reach our goals is because our self image doesn’t match what we write down as goals.
Or we carry around a lot of old wounds, negative emotions and just “BLAH BAGGAGE” that makes the journey harder, a lot less fun and void of joy & play.
Whatever kind of planning you’re doing: Work on your self image THE most. That step is the missing ingredient in most of these trainings around New Year Resolutions and Goal Setting.
Because by working on your Self Image, not only does the “goal planning” process become easier … you actually reach your goals with more ease and alignment!
Now …. go dream big, do big and believe that it’s all possible!
