“A goal without a plan is just a wish”
You’ve heard it time and time again…if you want to succeed, set goals.
And I agree. Goals are essential to actually achieving the things you most desire.
There are a number of reasons for this:
- They keep you accountable
- They relieve some stress because everything you have to get done is out of your head and written down
- They keep you on track when you get overwhelmed
- They make your desires actually feel attainable
But how many times have you made certain goals for your health and happiness and then eventually just sat there staring at them, with no real motivation to move forward?
You create this amazing list of everything you desire to have for your body and overall health and then just freeze when it comes to actually implementing the necessary steps to get there
That’s because it’s not just necessary to know WHAT you want to do and HOW you need to get it done, but the real key is…
…WHY you want to do any of it in the first place.
The WHY is all about inspiration and that’s what gets you going and keeps you going.
The WHY also allows you to create specific and actionable steps that will help you achieve your goals in a more ENJOYABLE way.
We are emotional beings, however, we often neglect this part of ourselves and only focus on trying to “get shit done.”
We use too much masculine energy, the energy of action, doing and logic and too little of our feminine energy…creativity, exploration, enjoyment, intuition and emotion.
It’s no wonder that so many times, even if we do reach our goals we experience little to no satisfaction. And instead of being able to celebrate what we’ve accomplished, the enjoyment is fleeting and we have to find the next thing to go after to fill that void.
Not focusing on the pleasure is also a reason why many people can’t keep up with things like diets, that only focus on the end result of losing weight at the cost of health and happiness.
