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.
“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.”
