Reflection and Clarity on Your Goals

 When you have goals lined up this can help motivate you to make the best use of your time. Your goals should inspire you and make you smile. Your goals should align with your Authentic Core Values. You will find when you begin to integrate your Authentic Core Values into your life, achieving your goals energizes you even more, allows life more meaning and you will feel more fulfilled.

Take a moment to read through your  most recent list of goals and get in touch with the positive feelings you had when you first wrote these goals. Once you feel connected with your intentions reflect on some questions. Here are some questions and suggestions that will help you create action steps to help you achieve your goals while living your Authentic True Core Values. Before asking the questions, quiet your mind and be willing to allow your intuition to guide you to the right answer.

  • Name the Goal. Write your goal in present tense, as if you’ve already attained it. Listing your goals only in future tense, is allowing your sub-conscious mind to keep it in the future, because the truth is, you want this goal here and now.
  • What are the potential obstacles that could possibly get in the way of your progress towards your goal?
  • What has stopped you from achieving it so far? Were you not able to live out your Authentic True Core Values while trying to achieve this goal in the past?
  • What specific actions can you take to overcome these potential obstacles?
  • Specifically, what impact will achieving this goal have on your life? What benefits will you gain?
  • How will you be different when you accomplish this goal? How might your life be different when you accomplish this goal?
  • Is this a goal that you can believe will be a reality in your life? Are there certain costs you need to be aware of and are you willing to pay the price? Again, comparing your list of goals and your Authentic True Core Values will show you if you are in alignment or if something needs to be tweaked or totally changed.
  • You may already have the tools and resources you need to achieve your goals. You might need more resources. List the resources you will need to achieve each of your goals. These resources could be any one or more of the following: time, energy, a particular network, friends, money, software of some sort. This is just to give you an idea. What other resources can you think of that you might need to achieve your goals? Go through each goal for this step.
  • Once you have listed all the resources you might need to complete your goal, it is time to set action steps to help you attain these resources. What action steps can you start taking to attain these resources? Let’s give these action steps to attaining these resources a time frame and if possible actual completion dates.
  • What one specific action would have the greatest impact on manifesting this goal into reality; what would bring it real into your life; what would bring it into fruition?
  • What feels most inspiring to do right now that will empower me to maintain focus and momentum?
  • What is the one Action Step I most need to begin today?

Next, you are ready to set a time frame for completing your goals. You now have the tools and resources you will need. You have created Action Steps for each goal. Let’s select completion dates for each goal. You will be setting specific dates for completing but in addition, I would like you to include this important action step as part of your plan for each goal. Each day I would like you to imagine you have already achieved this goal. How will you feel? Visualize how you can feel this way naturally, every day.

Once you’ve identified the steps and actions needed, begin to move forward with these plans. You already have authentic and unique skills. You have the ambition and creativity to expand your ideas in your own dramatic and authentic style. Your answers identify the most effective action to take in alignment with your Authentic Self and True Core Values. As you begin to integrate these questions, you may want to tweak or add your own or choose entirely different questions.

Creating your life to be in alignment with your Authentic True Core Values can enhance success, fulfillment and happiness in your life. Each day offers you opportunities to live your values through your choices and behaviors.

Reflecting on your values daily not only will allow you to hold yourself accountable, but will also allow you to feel calm, confident and sure, knowing that you are focusing on what is most important to you. You will experience that simple feeling with in you of love, peace and joy more often when you align your life goals with your Authentic True Core Values. It is yourself to whom you must first be true. Feel empowered in knowing you have a choice and the choice is yours – yours to choose what is right for you!

When you are successful you will feel yourself improving and prospering in connection with yourself and the World around you. Using a holistic approach to tracking your success helps you see how you are thriving in all areas of your life. You will have more energy instead of feeling as if your energy is being drained from you. There are more creative and authentic ways to measure your goal success than the standard numbers method or the “show me the money”.

Acknowledge your goal success based on various aspects such as your flexibility, creative and authentic expression, the number of vacation days you will take this year, the fact you prioritized attending all of your sons little league games this season. These are all examples of personal signs of success that light up your eyes, leave warmth in year heart, and a glow on your face. What actions steps can you take today, big or small, that will keep you moving toward seeing more of what you want in your life?
