yellow brick road

Is this your yellow brick road?

Are the goals you are working on yours?

Does it feel like the road is paved in gold and it seems all you have to do is dream it and it becomes your reality or is it like slogging around the base of a mountain but not quite getting your footing to climb it or you can’t find the path?

One reason may be that someone else set the goal for you. Not consciously but maybe they want something for you more than you want it.

Even without knowing it you may have set a goal you felt you “should” set based on someone else’s beliefs or desires for you. It either overwhelms you or even under-whelms you. Hard to put your heart into something like that isn’t it?

Does your goal feel somewhat pressured, not in a good way.   Do you feel pushed towards it, vs. drawn towards it? Like you cannot imagine not getting to the end result!

You may even want the goal but there may not have been enough thought or planning around it. Reality may or may not have an impact on your goal but put those glasses on to check it out if necessary. This is not to burst your balloon, but looking at all your options is still valuable.

Anything can be done if there is enough desire and energy to move you forward. If you have been less that “there” lately, then start with a smaller yet S-M-A-R-T goal.  One you know you CAN achieve with a small stretch then make each next goal bigger so that as you take those achievable steps, you are creating an environment of energy that will make even the seemingly impossible, POSSIBLE!

I too have had a past full of goal setting where I did well, then not so well. In hindsight I realize that my aversion to goal-setting was absolutely from getting to a place of setting goals that felt I “should” do, it would look good, I would feel better about myself, etc, etc,etc.

What I know today is that a goal has to be driven by your Vision. The one YOU want for yourself. The goals are the stepping stones towards it. You will feel drawn towards your goals and Vision in a way that feels like that path of gold off to OZ. All you need do is dream it, then be S-M-A-R-T about it!

Ingredients

Hmmm…Whats Missing?

Setting goals gives us a feeling of starting anew.

But if our goals aren’t created properly, we are setting ourselves up for failure right from the start. So next time you create your goals, add this additional element to ensure your success.

Not only do you want to write them down, look at them daily, and take deliberate action toward achieving them, but you also want to visualize them as if they have already happened.

So… Want to lose 20 pounds? Visualize yourself 20 pounds lighter.

Want to make $100K this year? Visualize yourself putting $10K cheques in the bank each and every month.

Want to pay off all your debt? Visualize your balance sheet saying $0 due.

Visualizing your goals is the missing ingredient to achieving what yo want to accomplish.

Enjoy the experience, and enjoy your vision coming to be!

Les Rivaux de Painful Gulch

A Little Motivation

Pain doesn’t tell you when you ought to stop. Pain is the little voice in your head that tries to hold you back because it knows if you continue you will change.

Don’t let it stop you from being who you can be. Exhaustion tells you when you ought to stop. You only reach your limit when you can go no further.

Feet On the Map

Action is fascinating because action is habitual.

You can be the habit of action or the habit of inaction – both having dramatically different results.

The more you create the habit of action, the more action you take.

And the more you create the habit of inaction, the harder it is to get started.

Which habit are you in? What holds you back? All it takes it the first step. Then another step. No one ever said it has to be the right step because you can adjust along the way. It just has to be a step, and all the rest will work itself out.

What is the moral of the story? Don’t wait until your perfect plans are made and your fears are gone. The perfect time is now. Take the first step, then make the other steps a habit.

Think big

Think big (Photo credit: m-c)

The most important thing you can do to change your life is to change your thoughts. 

I know, it’s easier said than done I know.  We all have a pattern of how we process our thoughts.  For some of us this pattern serves us better than others. But the good news is that you can change it.

How do your thoughts serve you?  Can you notice them and choose what to do with them in the moment?   Or do you let your thoughts control you?  Just because a thought comes in doesn’t mean it is true, and doesn’t mean you have to think it, believe it or accept it.

Try to be more conscious of your thoughts,just like when your stomach growls for food.  And when your thoughts come, determine how they are serving you and what to do with them.  Then do it.

Cover of "8 Women"

Cover of 8 Women

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false]The time is NOW for a NEW YOU!

 

Is it time for a change?

Are you stuck?

Do you know which way to go next?

Are you at a crossroads in your life as a woman of a certain age?

I am launching a NEW Group Coaching Event open to the first 8 women ready for a change.

Starting February 21, 2011!

I am sure some of you are asking what Coaching is.

The short answer of what it is and is not…

Coaching is a supported self-guided path to change.

Whatever change you are ready for I will meet you there and co-create a plan for moving forward.

Coaches are in the asking business and that is what I am here to do!

Therapy can deal with past pain, whereas mentoring and consulting shows you how by an expert.

I will not give medical advice.

 

Why would you participate, you ask?

Participants from the last session will share with you some of their reasons.

“I have been able to clarify what is important to me and make decisions more consciously…I have a better & more clear idea of what makes me “tick”. I have also increased my self-acceptance. Impact: A safe enough environment to help me have the courage to tell the truth about myself to myself. Anne B.

“The group provided me with the opportunity to meet fabulous women on a similar journey & our get-togethers inevitably led to a heightened level of personal understanding. It was a blast!” Helene S. 

“It helped me set priorities and motivate me towards working on my goals. I am more assertive in communicating my needs. I thought it was a great workshop! Tammy is a great facilitator!” Veronica P.

“These women created a bond with each other and felt safe to share their inner-most feelings. Women supporting women has worked throughout the generations. Today’s need is no less valuable. Bring a friend to share this special time with knowing you will be the better for it.”
Tammy Rowland
