To mark the release of my on demand 4 week programs, the blog conversations for this month will cover the topics of the programs:
Building confidence and self-esteem;
reducing stress and anxiety;
rewiring limiting belief systems; and
setting goals and taking intentional action
Today I wanted to focus on goal setting. The thing is, there are different types of goal setters. There are the goal setters that set clear goals and always seem to get them, and there are others who have so many goals that start and never see through to completion. There are others who seem lost at the thought of what they want and where they want to go.
Goals aren’t just about vision boards and calling in the Universe. Goals are consistently putting in the work, staying motivated and holding yourself accountable…
Speaking up and learning to assert ourselves is really challenging when just the thought of it makes our nervous system feel dysregulated like we’re about to walk onto the battlefield. This happens from years of conditioning and coping strategies in order to get our needs met. Recognising this is so important in helping you to move forward for our goals. Here are some takeaways for you to apply when you are working towards something you want:
Become aware of the times you trade your authenticity for silence. What are you doing? Who is with you? What are you feeling? How can you show up for yourself?
Become aware of when you lean towards likability instead of striving for your goal. Again, what are you doing? Who is with you? Who are the safe people in your life you can share this with? What do you need from yourself?
Today, take an intentional action towards your goals. Google search it to research more about it, send that email. Make a choice. Journal about it. It doesn’t matter how small the step is, make it today. Then choose to make another one tomorrow.
I know you wouldn’t turn up to your first day in a new role and say “can we skip the next 2 years and go straight to the promotion”? So, let’s normalise this same mentality with achieving your goals and not cut corners. Set realistic milestones, work hard, be consistent and repeat.
If the information in this blog interests you, please check out the ‘Setting Goals and Taking Intentional Action’ on demand program. Each program contains the equivalent of over a months worth of session material with me (a £420+ value) for just £27! That’s (at the most) around 90p a day for a 4 week course. The best thing is that it is on demand, which means that you can take it at your own pace and in your own time. There are no rigid time commitments, no travel time, and no need to put off other priorities because you have a session appointment. I decided to make these programs because I believe I have an obligation to help make investing in self-work and emotional literacy more accessible, and a big part of that impact is to make this work more financially accessible.
