It's that time of year again when employers, employees and entrepreneurs are setting goals for 2020. Business goals, Career goals, financial goals, health goals, fitness goals, relationship goals and the list goes on.
Many have to achieve goals that they have not set, but have been set for them, especially if you are an employee. The key to achieving goals that you do not set for yourself, is to align yourself with the goal in a way that compels you to enjoy the process of achieving those said goals. Ask yourself “How will achieving these goals add value to my life?” Find a way to make them your own.
Spending time goal planning is a very important process in order to be successful in business and in life. If you do not give yourself, consciously and unconsciously very simple and specific instructions to follow how will you ever arrive at your set destination. How do you know what to focus on? A ship does not set sail without knowing exactly where it needs to arrive and yes course corrections along the way are required. We operate the same way. The logical mind makes the goal and the unconscious mind is the goal getter.
How Do You Super Charge Your Goals?
In my Super Charge your Goals Kit I instruct you to create a Vision, a multidimensional picture of your Vision already complete. Using all your senses, see yourself celebrating the accomplishment.
Ask yourself “What is the last thing that has to happen in order for me to know this goal is successfully achieved?” Then picture that thing.
For example my big Vision and Goal is to own a Retreat Center - I see myself having accomplished this when I see myself with my husband receiving the key from the Realtor and putting the key in the lock, turning it and walking through the open door. I see who is with me, I see exactly what the area looks like, how it sounds, the smells and most importantly how I feel in my body.
It is important to know how you want to feel while on the journey but also when you are celebrating the accomplishment. It is also so very important to celebrate no matter how small at each step of the way. This will keep you motivated to stick with it when the tasks get tedious or scary. Look forward, and celebrate how far you have come vs feeling overwhelmed by how much you have yet to do.
I invite you to complete this sentence using positive forward looking language.
“It is January 1st 2021, and I am feeling ______________ and celebrating _________________. In the year 2020 I have accomplished and achieved _____________________________. Write a sensory description of your journey in 2020 as if it has already happen. Read it daily, embody the feelings as well.

Now lets talk a little bit about what Blocks Successful Goal Achievement.
What gets in the way of goal setting and achievement is old programming, memories of goals set and failed in the past. Negative Self Talk, Limiting Beliefs, Doubts and Emotions are the villains when it comes to Successful Goal Achievement.
Think about it? Was there ever a time in your past where you set a goal, had a vision and dream, where you were 120% invested, whole heartedly, emotionally and financially and then BOOM! It all came crashing down around your ears.
If yes, how did it feel?
Does it still make you cringe and feel angry? What about the self talk and recriminations? We are hardest on ourselves. Or perhaps, it was an outside force, or a person who let you down. It is all the same, you are now living with Goal Trauma. Goal Trauma is a goal failed for one reason or another that still causes stress and emotion in the body. Anger, regret, guilt to name a few.
Goal Trauma gets in the way of really investing yourself in the process of setting intentions and goals for yourself. In a way it is really not your fault. Why? Well, in order to not experience those negative emotions a person will do almost anything to avoid feeling them and if setting goals brings back old memories and it doesn't feel good then we resist and avoid or set the bar so low that we really never reach our true potential because we learn to play it safe rather than take on risk of failure.
