Everyone is talking about smashing your goals. The online space is filled with super-duper magic formulas and most people claim that their solution is the best.
But how do you know which of these “magic formulas” will bring you the best results?
When we’re setting goals for a new year, a new project or even for a week or day, we tend to focus on all the things that we want to achieve. Our big goals become a long list of things to do. The inspiration slowly dissolves and it starts feeling heavy and constrained.
It’s easy to become uninspired when your goals are not aligned with your soul.
Tune into your real desires
Great people do things before they’re ready, they say. But how can you stay inspired and feel excited when you’re only focusing on your achievements?
Start with the feeling
Ask yourself the question: ‘How do I want to feel when I achieve this goal?’ And start jotting down whatever comes up. Understanding what is it that you really want is the core of your motivation. No matter what you set your mind to, your real goal is always a feeling. Have you ever experienced getting something you so much wanted and still feel unfulfilled? Fulfillment comes from feeling the way you imagined by achieving that goal. It’s not about the expensive dress, it’s about the pride of having earned that money all by yourself. It’s not about the fancy vacation, it’s about the freedom you get with working for yourself. And it’s different for every singe one of us. Get clear on what’s the feeling you’re after.
Set your soul-based goals
Tuning into your feelings will help you shape your intentions. Once you understand your true desires, you can create an action plan that feels aligned. When replace your to-dos with exciting plans, accomplishing your goals will start feeling a lot more effortless. If your general intention is to become a better version of yourself, you can also ask yourself the following questions: “How do I want to feel as a woman / mom /wife / business owner / etc?” You can fill in the blank for yourself. This will help you better understand your motivations regarding your desired outcome. Take your time to feel into your new reality and create a vision board that reminds you of where you’re going. Document your journey and affirm yourself daily.
Create new habits & rituals
About 95% of the things we do are based on routine. Brushing your teeth in the morning, wearing a scarf when it’s cold outside or even greeting the shop assistant at the store are only few of the things we do out of habit daily. Our brain is a lazy machine that likes to do things on autopilot. So, when it comes to creating new habits, you need to be aware of the feelings behind your goals. Instead of trying to force yourself to do the things you think you should, tune into what feels the easiest and most effortless way to go. Telling yourself that you have to change will never going to work. However understanding why you want that outcome will take you much closer to how you can achieve your goals. For example, if your goal is to losing weight, ask yourself the following questions: Why do I want to lose weight? How do I want to feel when I lose weight? What kind of woman I want o be when I lost weight? How do I want to look? How do I want to spend my day? And start designing your new daily routine based on your answers.
To successfully create a new lifestyle (and a new you really!) you need to be consistently taking positive action. Sharing this journey helps you stay on track and keep on going even on the dull days.
