So, today my husband, cousin, good friend, and myself went to a goal setting workshop. It was held at lululemon in Santa Monica. It was a truly wonderful experience. I left feeling motivated, inspired, and just more energetic and happier than normal. For a recap, we mingled, talked about why people don't set goals, then talked about our own. Here are a few things you can do to start seeing changes in your lives.
1. Acknowledge the reasons why people don't set goals and then let them go. Some of those reasons are fear of failure, fear of success, ignorance and simply not knowing that one should set goals, fear of "doing it wrong" or someone judging you, indecisiveness, not knowing what one wants, and anything else you can imagine under the sun.
2. Answer the following questions to gain clarity in terms of what you want subconsciously.
a. what are three of your goals you want to accomplish in the next year?
b. if you had 10,000,000 dollars, what would you do?
c. if you had 6 months to live, what would you do?
d. what write down as many goals as you can in 1 minute.
3. Free writing. After reviewing your answers to the previous questions, write down as many goals as you can for about ten to fifteen minutes.
4. Follow these three steps daily
a. look at your goals and read them out loud three times every day.
b. think about achieving your goals. think about where you are, how you feel, what you smell, what you see, what you hear,. Think in as much detail as possible. The more details, the more the universe will respond.
c. don't tell a lot of people your goals at first. Your inner critic should not meet the outer skeptic of your peers. When these two collide, you have an onset of doubt and your goals shred to bits and pieces. Keep visualizing your goals and you will know who you should share them with eventually.
5. The final step, so you can keep in the groove, is to write yourself a note. Tell yourself the things that you remember most from doing these exercises and put it in a sealed envelope with your address and a stamp. Mail it to yourself. When it arrives, wait for one month and open it. Continue to do this throughout the year, every month.
