We’ve had such good feedback from men and women who attended the It’s My Time and Goal Achiever workshops in 2009 and 2010, that I decided to run another one next week.
While I certainly don’t want to build my marketing reputation on kicking people into action, it did amuse me how many people said they got the ‘kick up the butt’ they were needing! It has ranged from starting your own business, requalifying to do what you love, changing jobs, to writing books. I just love seeing the light go on when you realize that what you want is in reach, you’d just forgotten to set your sights on what you want. Having the right mindset around your goals is key.
You see, most people set goals in line with their current results. When things are going well, it’s easier to dream bigger and imagine that you can get what you dream of. When you have a setback, or a major change that causes you to have to go back to basics, or tighten your belt- then we are tempted to set goals that are based on the bare minimum of what we need, rather than what we want.
What is wrong with that? Well, on the surface, not much really – if you need a certain income to meet your expenses, then you need it. BUT when you’re setting goals on what you need rather than what you want, there is no inspiration in those goals. They are a to-do list rather than a goal.
When you set goals that get you excited, that wake you up in the morning, those are the goals that motivate you and get you moving. These are the goals that very often come true easier and quicker than you thought possible.
Think about all the goals you’ve set over the years. Some were achieved with no effort at all. Some were only achieved with massive effort. Some didn’t even happen, even though they seemed really realistic and achievable, but somehow didn’t pan out. These are the ones that you set because you thought you could have them, not because you wanted them. What has the difference been?
The ones you were excited about – and were in line with your gifts and talents, those were the ones that happened easier than you thought possible. The ones that somehow didn’t pan out – you probably found other things that you were more motivated about. Let me know what you think!
There are two opportunities for you to dig into your goals – wherever you are in the world. If you’re in Western Australia, I am running the It’s My Time workshop next Thursday 23 August. Click here to book
book now if you want to have your goals all written up and ready to action before spring arrives!
If you’re not able to get to my live event, then you’ll be pleased to know that I have recorded an online program that will be ready very soon. I’ll let you know when you can start ordering it. Two of my goals this year: To publish my book and to get a video product out that can be used by anyone anywhere in the world. I have a bit of work ahead of me, but we’re on track! I’m very conscious that we are just over 4 months away from the end of the year, so that keeps me focused on getting very exciting information out so that you can share it with others. Watch this space!
Enjoy the rest of your Chooseday,
