The first sentence of Evin Anderson’s blog post, So What’s Your Goal , made my day. It got me thinking about all the goals I had accomplished and all the wonderful things that were brought into my life because of those goals. The Zig Ziglar video linked in Evan’s post lifted me up another step. So while I was hot, my mind churning with great memories and good feelings, I decided to revisit my current goals.
A little background so you’ll know where I’m coming from – I used to teach goal setting at the regional level back in my MLM days, so the concepts aren’t new. But you know how it is when you’re good at something, you start taking it for granted until someone comes along and reminds you that a tune up is always a good idea.
Here’s what is new
I applied the energy principles I teach to Zig’s list. I first learned these energy principles in the context of healing. It was a pretty quick transition to see how amazing they are when applied to anything else. I started using them with everything I read, my reaction to conversations or movies, you name it – I was checking to make sure my thoughts and attitudes weren’t blocking my energy. I’ll have to explain more about how the energy works in another post and link it in here – it would take us way off track today. So for now here are the steps Zig says you need to use.
Write the goal down
Put a date on it
List the obstacles you have to overcome
Identify the people, organizations and groups you need to work with
Spell out a plan of action
Set a time limit in there (on each step of your action plan)
Identify all the benefits to you
To my great surprise I had plenty of energy to clear related to these simple steps. Now – look back up to the top of this post. Notice how Evin inspired me to think of all my successes. What would I have accomplished if I had cleared those energy blocks earlier? What will I be able to do now that they’ve been moved out of my way? It can only get better!
I took the time to reorganize and revamp two of my major goals last night with a much clearer insight than ever before. It just flowed! And I’m left wondering how I didn’t see it before. Oh wait – it was that fuzzy energy that was blocking my view before.
And I thought I knew energy work, knew goals, and knew how to accomplish things. Just goes to show you – never stop trying to learn new things, never stop trying new ways to apply the things you know.
