A GOAL, WELL SET, CAN SHIFT A LIFE!
One of the key elements of my work is to help and inspire people to set their goals: their own personal visions of how they would like their lives to be. This is not always straightforward because so few people are accustomed to formulating and giving voice to their heartfelt ambitions. I emphasise ‘heartfelt’ because it is essential that a goal comes from deep expression in order that it be truly inspirational. It can sometimes prove challenging to formulate a goal in this way, but as soon as the right words are uttered, there is no doubt – they hit the mark. This process is often every bit as moving for me as for the people I work with - what an honour!
A GOAL TO INSPIRE THE BEST WE CAN GIVE
If someone wishes to realise their deepest desires a goal needs to stir positive emotions, heighten the senses, and fire enthusiasm. I encourage people to say it, write it, have it on their mobile, on their screen saver etc. anywhere it can be seen regularly and it must powerful enough to inspire them each & every time they read it.
DECADES OF CONDITIONING CANNOT BE OVERTURNED IN A FEW WEEKS...
The goal, however, has to be both challenging and realistic. Decades of conditioning cannot be overturned in a few weeks. But such dreams, verbally expressed, become an affirmation to back up intentions and actions. The goal is no vague wish list of what we would like to do – it is what is going to happen!
