Intentional Goal Setting for 2020

Intentional Goal Setting for 2020

As we set off in the new year (and new decade), many of us are in the reflection and goal setting mode. We are looking at what our life was like over the past year and what we want to create now.

However, we can often get distracted from what we truly need when setting our goals. Even when we are using a great methodology (think SMART goals), we might end up reaching externally, focusing on things that will bring validation, or ignoring our inner wisdom in favour of what we THINK we should do. Or for some of us, what we think others want us to do. 

To get yourself on track for being your best self and doing your best work, you need to tune in to all aspects of your life. Examine your blindspots. See where you are out of balance. Understand why you want what you want and ask whether that is in service of who you are becoming.

We use the Veza Wheel of Life with our coaching clients to support them in this reflection. Download it and mark it up based on the level of alignment and satisfaction you have in each area of your life. Not only will it give you a benchmark for how you are starting this year, it will show you the areas of your life you have been neglecting. We recommend setting inspired actions or goals around the three lowest scoring areas, so you can bring balance to your life. After completing this exercise, you can begin your annual goal setting from a place of understanding what you truly need to grow.

Wishing you on one of the most creative, fun, abundant, loving years of your life.

Want to set 2020 up to be a year of alignment and growth? Join us for our free webinar 2020 Vision: Creating Aligned Goals for the New Year on January 8th to get coached through your visioning process. Attendees will also receive a free copy of our Goal Setting Guide (usually exclusive to our coaching clients).

Are you Sabotaging Yourself?

You know where you want to go and what you want to achieve. The intentions are correct, you take the actions but for some reason things are just not working out.

What is it? Your frustrated and your thinking what the f**k!
I am attending my mastermind right now in Redondo Beach. This mastermind is a group of high achievers who invest at a high levels in themselves. They know that as they grow their personal power we are able to help more people and live more of our purpose. I am learning new ways to help my clients who are growing their businesses and I am loving it!
As I was enjoying the views during my waking meditation, I remembered a time where I had sabotaged myself and my plans unknowingly.  It was a few years ago. I was looking for a promotion as I knew I was ready to impact the organization more. I had talked to the right people and I had their support to out my name forward. I prepared my cover letter and resume. I researched current trends and had other people look it over. Everything looked like it was in my favour.
I had the resources, I set my intentions, I did the best job possible that I could do so I submitted my application. I was so happy I had taken this step. This feeling lasted until I talked to my coach. As I was telling her my excitement for this position. She asked me a question “what projects and skills did you highlight that is specific to the position? My heart sank, I had left out an important project that was applicable to this position. On your resume we don’t put everything we do but we do highlight those that pertain to the position. How could I have forgotten? I started beating myself up over it. I felt like a failure and the voice started “Manpreet? Why don’t you pay attention? You aren’t good at details…blah blah and I just felt like crap.
I had sabotaged myself subconsciously. A part of me didn’t feel worthy of the position therefore I did something that would prove that to myself. I needed to come to a place of a complete compassion for myself and look at where else I was sabotaging my success. As I talked it through with my coach, I was able to forgive myself. {I did get the job in the end}.
Where are you sabotaging yourself? Where do you not feel worthy of growing your business or getting the next promotion? What can you do to change the situation?
Over the next few weeks we will be looking at patterns and beliefs in our subconscious and how they are impacting different aspects of our lives. Are you sabotaging yourself in relationships or in your confidence or in career and your money?
