2 Steps For Powerful Goal Setting

Goal SettingGoal Setting For Success

If you care to follow the work of most successful people of our time in any field of endeavor, you will discover that they all share similar traits and characteristics, and they all do similar activities. And goal setting is one of their most essential activities. So, this week I want to talk about the power of setting clear intentions and goals for ourselves.

I never knew that there was a difference between an intention and a goal, but thanks to Natalie Ledwell’s Ultimate Success Masterclass, I’m finding out that there is a distinct difference between the two. Module 2 of that program covers how to set a powerful intention and create clear goals for any area of our lives. 

Goal Setting Made Easy – Here Are The Two Steps:

First, let’s take a look at what the two entail. An intention is a long-term vision for the future, it’s a statement filled with positive energy and emotions of accomplishment, empowerment and determination, in which you basically describe how you envision your life to look like, feel like and act like in the area of that you want to positively impact.

A goal on the other hand is a measurable means to an end, it’s setting up a specific, measurable, and time-bound milestone to lead you to your intention. For example, I may have a strong desire to live a happier and healthier lifestyle, that’s my clear intention. My specific goal would then be that I am exercising 30 minutes every day for the next 30 days, or that I am releasing 30 pounds of excess weight from my body within the next 90 days.

The eye-opening difference here is that an intention focuses completely on the big overarching WHY behind your dreams and desires, whereas a goal mostly focuses on HOW you’re going to get there. This was a big “a-ha” moment for me when I went through that module last week, because now I am able to clearly see why I have not been able to stay focused and action-driven on reaching both my personal and professional goals at times. I was mostly focusing my energy on the “how” instead of honing in on the deeper levels of my desires, the real purpose behind them. And of course, when I didn’t reach my goals, I simply got frustrated and lost all momentum. I did not know that I needed to first set a clear intention before engaging in any goal setting, therefore there was never a powerful energy behind it all to fuel me up and help me keep at it even when the going got tough.

Create An Unstoppable Goal Setting Theory For Yourself

So, next time you are planning on working on some of your own goals, make sure to take some time to clearly define what it is that you truly want, set your clear intention statement in the present tense using positive words only, declare it publicly, define your specific and measurable goals, and then allow the Universe to bring you the people, events, resources and opportunities that you need to help you achieve them effortlessly.

And also, before you start any intention or goal setting for yourself, always make sure to be in a good mental state first. Do whatever is necessary to create that happy feeling before you start the process, that energetic vibration will be the unseen driving force behind the deliberate creation and the delivery of your desires.

I am very grateful to have come across such a powerful coaching program, it really is helping me to be more active in my approach to success in life, I can be too laid back and fearful sometimes, but knowing the clear “why” behind my desires has really pushed me to be more energetic, more enthusiastic and more hopeful in my daily actions. And that is what I want for you too. Your ultimate success means a lot to me, and I am here to share my insights with you to help you in your journey the best way I know how.

And remember, it always starts with being grateful and thankful for the many blessings already pouring into your life. Believe that with all your might, and go from there.  May the joy be with you…xoxo :-).
