Setting goals might be easy, but actually achieving those goals? Notsomuch.
We fail to meet our goals for lots of reasons, but often the issue starts at the very beginning with the nature of the goal itself; instead of a soul’s goal, most of us set goals based on our ego’s fears rather than our soul’s true desires.
It’s easy to get tripped up when it comes to goal setting because our little minds (aka our egos) tend to focus on what we think is important based on everyone else’s standards, which doesn’t always line up with what we really want on the inside.
Trust me, I know this all too well.
My goals for most of my childhood involved working hard at school to please my parents and partying hard right after to please my friends.
I somewhat successfully maintained this intensity and commitment to a “work-hard/play-hard” lifestyle until the straw that broke this camel’s back:
As a junior Business major at Pepperdine University, I finally got my first B…and it broke me.
In hindsight, I can see how ridiculous this was, but at the moment, all I could think about was one thing:
I had a goal, and that goal was to always be the best student in class, no matter the price. I didn’t question this goal until years later, when that same intensity led to a constant level of anxiety and near panic attacks.
It was at this point that I finally woke up, and through my own personal journey with hypnosis and opening myself to a stronger relationship with my intuition, I was finally able to understand the difference between ego’s goals and soul’s goals.
Soul’s goals are ones that marry the being with the doing and the essence of what we desire with the clear and practical vision of the potential outcomes.
In honor of this high energy time of the year, when many of us wake up on January 1st with a sense that anything is possible, I wanted to share 4 powerful questions that can help you reach your goals (and especially your soul’s goals!).
Grab something to write on, then click play on the video below:
I would love to hear from you:
What Soul’s Goals have you set for yourself this year?
And what came through your intuition when you asked yourself the 4 questions I shared in today’s video?
I truly believe in you and what’s possible when you set your heart and mind to it…and I know that there is a part of you that believes in it too.
Trust that the more that you tune in and you listen, the more that part of you that believes is amplified and becomes the part that is truly creating this life that your soul came here to create.
Here’s to a POWERFUL new year.
Sending big love,
