Setting Goals with Self Trust: Redefining Your Path to SuccessJul 19, 2023
Do you cringe at the thought of setting goals? Perhaps past experiences have left you feeling discouraged, overwhelmed, or even trapped by the pressure to achieve. But what if there was a different way? A way to set goals that empowers you, nurtures your self trust, and aligns with your true desires? In this blog post, we invite you to explore the transformative concept of setting goals with self trust. Discover the difference it can make in your life and learn how to navigate obstacles and stay on track, no matter what life throws your way.
Setting Goals with Self Trust: A Paradigm Shift
Setting goals with self trust involves a paradigm shift in how we approach the entire process. It starts by understanding that self trust is the foundation upon which goals are built. Instead of blindly chasing external expectations or societal pressures, self trust allows us to create goals that are aligned with our values, desires, and authentic selves.
When we set goals with self trust, we begin with a clear picture of potential obstacles and challenges that may arise along the way. We anticipate them and prepare strategies to overcome them, rather than being blindsided and losing momentum. This proactive approach empowers us to navigate through setbacks, adapt to unexpected circumstances, and keep moving forward towards our dreams.
Embracing the Ebb and Flow of Life
Life is unpredictable, and it often throws curveballs our way, disrupting our progress towards our goals. But with self trust, we don't let these interruptions define us or our aspirations. Instead, we own our choices and decisions in the face of unexpected circumstances. We acknowledge that sometimes, we may need to divert momentarily from our original plan, but we never let it define us as failures or derail our long-term vision.
By recognizing that we have agency and control over our choices, even in challenging situations, we can adjust our strategies, shift timelines, or find alternative routes towards our goals. It's about owning our decisions and having our own back, without making them mean anything negative about ourselves or our abilities.
The Power of Self Trust in Overcoming Resistance
We all have moments when we don't feel motivated or don't want to do the necessary work to achieve our goals. But self trust helps us overcome this resistance by reframing our perspective. We acknowledge that wanting or not wanting to do something in the moment doesn't define our commitment to our goals.
Just like we do things we don't necessarily want to do for the sake of relationships or financial stability, we can apply the same mindset to our personal goals. We recognize that the discomfort in the moment is temporary, and the ultimate result is what truly matters. By embracing this truth and shifting our focus from temporary discomfort to long-term growth, we become more resilient, committed, and capable of achieving our goals.
The Surprising "Gimme" Technique: Empowering Yourself with Choice
As we navigate the journey of pursuing our goals, there may be tasks or activities that we find particularly challenging or unenjoyable. To overcome this resistance, we introduce the "gimme" technique—an indulgent yet effective strategy. It involves giving ourselves permission to complain, fuss, or express reluctance while still committing to complete the task at hand.
By granting ourselves the freedom to acknowledge our resistance, we create a safe space to vent and release any negative emotions. Surprisingly, this act of self-permission and expression helps to diffuse the resistance and allows us to approach the task with a renewed sense of commitment and humor. It becomes a playful and light-hearted way to navigate through the discomfort and maintain our progress towards our goals.
Trust Yourself, Transform Your Goals
Setting goals with self trust is a powerful approach that allows us to redefine our path to success. By embracing self trust, we shift our mindset, anticipate obstacles, navigate challenges, and stay committed to our dreams. We learn to make choices that align with our values and desires, even in the face of unexpected circumstances. We empower ourselves to overcome resistance and approach tasks with a renewed perspective. And through it all, we cultivate a deep sense of trust in our own abilities, paving the way for personal growth and fulfillment.
So, let go of the past negative associations with goal-setting and embark on a new journey—one where self trust becomes your guiding light. Believe in yourself, set powerful goals, and create the life you truly desire. Trust yourself, and the possibilities are limitless.
