Goals with Soul
Do you feel the pressure of the new year to create goals and achieve lots? Are you already being a bit hard on yourself? I share how to make goals with soul, that you can embody and manifest in a more real way. The goal/manifesting can be in relation to your work, finances, well-being, future partner, hobbies, time management, or whatever is right for you.
A new year or new intention is a chance for us to almost begin again and to be given another opportunity to upgrade, perhaps from things that didn’t go so well in the past. Some people fail to achieve goals, which in itself, is also fine, as it is often the path of learning the goal that something occurs, for example perhaps it isn’t what you actually want, or you see a different path. It may also be that the goal is not actually aligned with what you truly want. When I mean align, I’m talking in alignment with the next-level version of you and stepping into your power of taking responsibility for making something happen.
1. Write down 3 columns Predictable, Possible and Potential
Give yourself some space to feel relaxed, have a hot bath, a walk, listen to some relaxing music and when the time feels right begin to write down some things you would like to achieve. If it helps you can break these down into 3 columns, predictable, possible and potential.
Predictable is what it says on the tin, the things you know will happen. Possible is what we get excited about, or what we want to create, but we haven’t achieved it yet, but we desire it as it feels good to us. This could be in the next days, or up to 12 months. Potential is the bigger pull, the 1 day, bigger dream, that still feels a long way away, perhaps in the next 3+ years.
2. Visualise achieving the goals
Once you have become clear in what goals you really want to bring about and feel good right now for you, imagine yourself having achieved it. Visualise it as best you can in your mind’s eye and bring that vision into your heart, how does it feel? What is different between the new you and how you are, or who you are today?
3. Alignment check-in
Are there any reasons why you wouldn’t want to achieve this goal? Are there any hidden doubts that could stop you from achieving this, are there any worries linked to achieving this goal? Allow yourself space to explore before investing in bringing about a goal.
4. What tools or support do I need to help bring this about?
Allow yourself permission to take all the practical and personal support that you need. This can look like learning, practical tools, emotional support, and time re arranging.
5. Map out the timings and stepping stones of the journey
Start with where you are now, the mini figure above and in the opposite side of the page the future goal achieved, break down all the stepping stones along the way that you see you might need to put in place to achieve the goal. Do not worry if it isn’t clear right away, start with what you see the first step might be. The goal is there to inspire you, the steps are there to be practical and to make it happen.
Extra support – saying out loud, or writing down what you as an individual can do to take responsibility for achieving your goal and what the universe can do to support you. I give an example below of how this can be read. For more information on this table, check out Mike Dooley.
What I can do to take responsibility for / What the universe can do to support me.
I wish you all the best in playing with the possibilities and finding enjoyment in the exploration of this, allow yourself to dream as big or as little as feels right for you.
For more information and support, I am excited to be offering life coaching on a 1-2-1 basis where we explore these very things. I also can support you in shifting through any blocks that are holding you back. Blocks can be physical, mental/emotional and spiritual or energetic.
