Have you ever created a goal that you were so passionate and excited about, only to lose interest several weeks or only moments later? I’m sure we’ve all experienced that multiple times, sometimes on a daily bases (those dishes aren’t going to wash themselves!).
There are so many factors that can contribute to failing our goals or even failing to start. These include; fear of failure (or success), negative programming and self-talk, childhood beliefs, it was a crappy idea to begin with etc. But the main reason that I have come across in my sessions is that we lose drive because our goal is not in alignment with our highest purpose or values.
When we have goals that are in alignment with our purpose and values, there is an automatic passion ignite flame under our behinds that drives us forward. Goals that are in alignment have a different feeling to them. Like floating along with the river rather than paddling up stream. Of course there will be a few rapids along the way (e.g. fears and beliefs that need to be cleared) but if you are on the right river then you merely need to guide the boat through the path of least resistance.
A few questions to consider when creating a goal: Is your goal exciting enough to make you jump out of bed in the morning? Is your goal big enough or is it just ‘safe’? Is your goal worthy of your time? Does your goal support your values and your purpose?
Once you have your goal in place with a plan to succeed, take action…straight away. The more action you take, the more momentum will build to help support you. The Universe loves action and will support you always. The thing that allows the support and abundance flow to you more easily is being in alignment with your purpose and values.
“When you live according to your highest values you become inspired and awaken genius. When you live according to your lower values you require continuous outside motivation and you suppress your genius. Your present purpose or mission for life will reflect your present highest values.” Dr John Demartini Here is a great tool to help determine your values: https://drdemartini.com/values/
Here is how to determine your purpose in life: “go within” I’m sure that’s something Buddha would have said.
