Review Your Goals and Personal Mission

Part  4 of the “Goals In Life – Starting The Year On The Right Foot” Series

It’s a great idea to review your goals and personal mission each year for one reason and one reason only. Things change! While your personal mission never changes at the Mission Blueprint level, you grow and the world changes, new technologies are born, new ideas come into our sphere of influence, and part of living successfully is adapting to change fast!

At the end of each year I review my goals and personal mission and I tweak my Vision, Mission and Purpose statements, making any adjustments I need to with my life goals, aims and objectives. This Is part of me making sure my ladder is still up against the right wall so every step I take in the new year is the right step in the right direction. In other words I’m ensuring I’m starting the year on the right foot.

One of the other phenomenon’s I see with my clients is that many of their goals and personal missions aren’t their own. They belong to their parents, society, to their internal chirping monkeys, and so their goals are set from this place of “I should”. I should strive for this or I should make this my goal or I should do this.
If you are sitting on any failed goals or struggling for some of them to come into fruition, it could be because you have set a goal you think you should have rather than because it’s part of your personal mission at your Soul’s Mission Blueprint level.

So by reviewing your goals each year and making sure your personal mission is YOUR personal mission and not someone elses dream, you are ensuring you are following your heart, passion and reason for being here in this world. You can realign and tweak your Life Path Plan each year to keep you focused and on track, reaching your mission milestones.

Mission Blueprint Home Study Program

This year I’m starting the year out with taking on board another 30 people for Mission Blueprint Home Bootcamp because I believe this review process is that important to starting the year on the right foot. Once you’ve discovered what it is you are here to do, what your personal mission is and set your goals in life, you have a tool you can use every year to review your goals and personal mission, keeping you focused on building the life you want, the life that gives you the greatest satisfaction and success.

Setting Personal Goals as Mission Milestones

Part  5 of the “Goals In Life – Starting The Year On The Right Foot” Series

Having personal goals in life doesn’t only help you with direction, it actually helps you bring into your world that which you want to experience. Without them you wander aimlessly totally reliant on what is stored in your subconscious mind to bring to you experiences. If you haven’t programmed your subconscious mind for that which you want, via setting personal goals, you might not get it. We change agents and social entrepreneurs have goals in our missions and business, but have you taken the time to look at what your goals in life are on a personal level?

Your personal goals are like your personal mission milestones once you reach them. They let you know if you are on track in life. I always start with my personal goal setting from the point of aligning those goals to my Mission Blueprint – that which I am here to do. If I’m goal setting from ego I may find one of three things happen:

1.    I immediately meet with stumbling blocks and opposition to my goals. In fact often I seem to be heading in completely the wrong direction of reaching them. When my goals are set in alignment with what it is I am here to do then every step I take is the right step in the right direction.

2.    I loose interest in pursuing them. Usually a clear sign the personal goals are in conflict with your Higher Self and its life purpose.

3.    I never reach them and they become failed goals.

I wanted to share a couple of excerpts out of my new book called Discover What You Are Here To Do which puts forward the need to have a Life Path Plan, much like a business plan with goals and mission milestones, so you have a map that will get you from where you are today to where you want to be. In this excerpt I dispel a common myth about planning and goal setting that I believe has many spiritual person living in poverty, not reaching their full potential and living half a life.

Discover What You Are Here To Do, by Nicola Grace

“Once you’ve discovered what you’re here to do, in order to transition from where you are now to where you want to go, and avoid fear either holding you back or stopping you in your tracks, you need a strategic plan with clear aims, objectives, goals, and an action plan broken down into doable steps. Breaking your plan down into doable steps gets you off the ground much faster because you’re side-stepping any fears you may have. It’s not that you won’t ever have to deal with fear but if you want speed, the fastest way to get that is not to go charging full steam into that which terrifies you.

Starting with doable steps also helps you build confidence in yourself and it picks up momentum on your path. You develop strong legs so to speak. With momentum, speed and strong legs you’ll be able to better face any fear that comes up along your path in the future. Facing your fears with wobbly legs is a slow approach and it’s not always guaranteed to work.

Of course you’re free to bombastically face your fears and jump off cliffs and sky dive into your challenges. It works if you have the type of personality that loves the adrenaline rush. That is not most people. Most people get fearful to the point they distract themselves from the fear, holding themselves back.

Having a road map in the form of a strategic Life Path Plan with an action plan that breaks your steps down into doable steps can help you side-step fears initially so you can get the ball rolling on what it is you are here to do.”

“I want to dispel a common spiritual myth out there, that has no grounding in new quantum science, and in my opinion has lead to many good hearted people living in poverty. That myth is that you don’t need to set goals or plan your life because the “Universe” will take care of you – “the Universe provides” so therefore there is no need to plan.

There is so much I could be saying to debunk this idea, so I’ll keep it brief for now because this is another soap box of mine that could have me writing a whole other book. We are now learning from quantum science and new brain discoveries how we create our reality and experiences.

We’re also beginning to have some inkling as to how we can manifest form through very new and revolutionary scientific discoveries. We now know there isn’t anything outside of us acting upon us in separation to us or what we think. We are all one. WE ARE a microcosm of that “Universe”. We are in fact “The Universe” we think is providing for us. The very substance of our lives comes into being in a co-creative equation of what we think and desire, what we intend in co-operation with the Divine, God, or Universal Creative Intelligence because there is no universe out there separate from us.

Yes the Universe is an abundant place with all that we could ever need to thrive, part of that thrival depends on how in harmony with the Universal Laws of Nature we are. If we were bees, all the flowers in the world we needed to collect nectar and take back to our queen, would be provided. We are human beings with a complex mind and therefore, unlike bees and the rest of nature, we are subject to the Laws of Mind. And the Laws of Mind require us to think in order to bring something into creation, in the same way our Creator creates. We are after all created in that likeness. It makes no sense that an omnipotent Creator could create something unlike itself.

Better to think consciously and plan out what it is we want and where we want to do, rather than to unconsciously meander through life – unless of course meandering is your Higher Purpose.

Through the Universal Laws of Nature, we humans with a complex mind need to think about what it is we desire and want to experience, in order to bring it into creation AND THEN the Universal Creative Intelligence within us and all around us, provides according to the Law of Creation. That requires setting goals and holding a vision of the outcomes we want to experience.

Now, when those goals and your life vision are created in co-operation with your Soul, then you are working in harmony with yourself. You have the greatest foundation for happiness and success, instead of a steady stream of unfulfilled goals and a vision you’ll never realize.”

Using Vision Board Goal Setting Software for Reaching Your Goals Fast

Part  6 of the “Goals In Life – Starting The Year On The Right Foot” Series

abundant_quiz3-1John Assaraf of the movie ‘The Secret’ and Law of Attraction fame, put the Vision Board for goal setting on the map. Since that movie vision board software came onto the market so you could not only set your goals but we visualize your goals and dreams as well. Vision Board Software, named exactly that, was the first goal setting software to come out to electronicize vision boarding, that I am aware of.

Visionboarding, that is creating a visual representation of your goals and dreams, is not only good for change agents and social entrepreneurs to do for their personal goals, it’s also excellent to vision board your big mission, personal missions and even mission milestones.

Traditionally to create a Vision Board you would cut out pictures that represent the goals you want to reach and place it prominently so you can use the power of creative visualization to manifest those dreams. I know, to some of you blokes it might seem girly, but if it’s good enough for multi-billionaire John Assaraf, in fact if it’s part of his arsenal that helped him become a multi-billionaire, then I figure it’s good enough for you.

As you know I like to say, “Millions of people around the world use the Law of Attraction to manifest a hot dude, hot babe, bigger car, better house and so on, why not use it and other Laws of Nature to change the world?” I think i need to add to that now and also say, “Thousands of people around the world use Vision Boards to creatively visualize reaching their goals fast, why not use Vision Board to creatively visualize making the world a better place fast.” After all the end of the world has come and gone and here we are, same old problems different day. 🙂

Vision Board Goal Setting Software – Mind Movies

Mind Movies is the world’s number #1 visionboarding software.

Vision Board Goal Setting Software Visual Goal Setting Software Creative Visualization

Vision Board Goal Setting Software

What I like about Mind Movies is that I get to create my own movie of what I want to achieve and how I want to start the year off on the right foot with creating my goals in life. You can add your affirmations to each of the visual images. You don’t have to buy heaps of magazines, go through them and cut the images out then glue them. The software allows you to upload jpgs and gifs. So vision board goal setting is so much faster and a lot more fun.

I also like that you can add music to your movie, set the images to your desktop of your computer or your screen saver, and set the affirmation bubbles to pop up at intervals, reminding your subconscious mind that this is what you want it to go out and fetch your you.

So this year as you are starting the year on the right foot with setting your goals in life, why not supercharge the time frame in which you achieve those goals by using the Mind Movies visionboarding software. It’s one of the best purchases I’ve made, I think, because it now gives me a tool to bring about anything I want! Be sure to Vision Board your missions for change and that better world we all want to live in, as well.


Meditation Goal Setting and How to Practice Meditation

Part  7 of the “Goals In Life – Starting The Year On The Right Foot” Series

Another thing I do to before setting my new years resolutions and goals in life for the coming year, is meditate a lot. One of the most common questions I get asked when I suggest to my clients to meditate is, “How do I practice meditation?”

So here’s a very simple beginners technique on how to practice meditation.

Simply sit still, be comfortable, you don’t have to be cross legged or sit in the lotus position.

Now focus you attention of being as physically still as possible. No movements.

This does two things:

1.    It gives your busy mind something to do.
2.    It eventually quietens down that busy mind.

Meditation Goal Setting

It’s always a great idea to set a goal for your meditation practice. Each meditation session may have a different goal or the same goal. For example you might set the goal to sit still for five minutes. You may then extend that time frame. You may also set the goal to go deeper into your meditation or have an awakening experience. Up to you what goal you set.

Meditation goal setting can be applied also to your goals in life. For example if you don’t know what to do, what direction to head in with your life purpose, or if you have some problem you need to solve you can set the meditation goal to finding an answer to the issue before you begin your practice.

Helpful answers are more likely to come to a quiet mind in peace, connected to your Higher Self, than when your mind is whirring around like a tornado of thoughts in all directions. Sitting still, focusing on not moving the body, having set your meditation goal is a good place to start your meditation practice.

I’ve put together a series of great meditations to connect with your higher self that I’ll be releasing to my subscribers in the coming days. If you’re interested, and want more tips on living a life of purpose incorporating Strategy With Spirit, be sure to sign up for my monthly Ezine below:
