Effective Goal Setting is one of the most recognized factors for success.
There are BIG companies and BIG names in the motivational speaking industry trying to get us pumped up and motivated to set goals and create change.
However, as important as I believe goals are, I do not believe that motivation is the way to go when initiating an effective goal setting program.
Instead, I believe in inspiration.
In my opinion, when it comes to effective goal setting, there is a big difference between motivation and inspiration.
Motivation speaks to the fact that you need a good kick in the behind to get you going. That somehow you don't have enough energy to do it yourself, so that you need something external to yourself, some sort of end reward, to empower and 'motivate' yourself to get going.
But when you are inspired, you simply take action for the joy of it. There will still be a reward at the end of it, but the reward is not the sole driving force.
When you are inspired, you still have a goal, but the goal need not require force or a great amount of laborious effort. Instead, when you are inspired, the 'work' required to get to that goal is effortless and fun.
So when I speak to you about effective goal setting, I do not want you to list off a bunch of items that you think you want to achieve. More often than not, I find that this will require too much effort.
And if you need too much motivation, it will certainly lead to failure, rather than effective goal setting.
Instead, to realize effective goal setting, when you set a goal, if it does not automatically fire you up and inspire you to be creative and act, then I would suggest you put it aside. It is simply the wrong time to do it. Not that you can't create an aspiration to do it down the road, just not now.
One of my favourite quotes of all time is from Yoda who said, "Do or do not. There is no try". This is the essence of the difference between goals that are motivationally driven and those that are inspirationally driven.
If you are simply going to 'try', that is weak, and you have failed before you even got started. If you decide that you are going to DO IT and GO FOR IT, that is inspired and you will succeed, regardless of the final outcome.
Effective Goal Setting can be tricky to do on your own. You can feel like you are floating in the middle of the ocean with no hope at seeing land.
A coach can be extremely helpful.
I know that I am a life coach and so I am a little biased, but I myself have had many coaches in my life. A coach is really there to help bring you perspective.
Most of the time I can't see the obvious solution that is right in front of me, because it is my own life. When I engage the help of my coach, it becomes easy. She helps me to find my own answers simply by making me look at things that I have overlooked.
So please, use this website and all the materials I have listed below, but if you still find that you are struggling with effective goal setting, ask for assistance.
