HOW TO GET WHAT YOU WANT WITH THE RIGHT GOALS
Are Your Goals SMART?
Do you really want “what you get” after achieving your goals? Or maybe you’ve missed hitting the target once again and can’t understand why goal achievement seems allusive.
For a long time, I didn’t understand why I felt let down after achieving a big audacious goal. It took the loss of loved ones for me to figure out that I needed to get current on what I valued the most. Sometimes in our darkest hours, we can see the light and uncover our deeper strengths. If we have the courage and a positive mindset, we can even find the sparks of hope and joy in how to move forward. Living our highest values and tapping into our deeper strengths, allows for setting the right goals that will help us get what we really want.
Purpose-driven people all have in common that they are crystal clear about what is most important to them and adopt values that guide their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Our personal and professional lives are interconnected. I’ve been coaching executives since 2011. In that time, I’ve observed how these inspirational people know what’s most important to them and prioritize their highest values when necessary.
The connections between my highest value and what sparks joy was again tested recently. I was writing an episode for my show, Monday Morning Motivation- Refresh Your Why when it struck me. Without really thinking about it, I was re-prioritizing my highest value again.
CHANGE WHAT YOU DO UNTIL YOU GET THE DESIRED OUTCOME
