Last year in 2019, I learned a crucial lesson that I think is pretty relevant to anybody who's not feeling 100% fulfilled and excited about their life or their business right now.
I spent most of the year chasing goals that were exciting and compelling, but they weren't really feeding my soul. They were kind of empty in a sense that the goal itself wasn't lighting me up from the inside out.
The thing is there's always an underlying FEELING to any goal that you have. That feeling is more important than the goal itself.
Let's say you want to build a six-figure business. What's more important than the goal of earning or making a $100,000 is the feeling that you believe that it's going to give you. So what is that for you?
Is it freedom? Is it security? Is it comfort? Do you think it's going to bring you a sense of ease or well being? Take a moment to identify for yourself what the feeling is because when your goal is driven by the feeling that you want to achieve rather than the thing that you want to have, you'll find it so much easier to stay inspired and motivated.
A $100,000 for the sake of having $100,000 if you don't even know what you're going to do with it or what that's actually going to bring you, feels a bit soulless. It's an empty goal and then you'll find that it becomes a stressful target rather than an inspiring thing to reach for.
Make sure you can answer these questions for each goal you have.
1. Does this really light me up from the inside out?
2. What feeling is it that I'm aiming for with this goal?
