& HERE’S MY STORY
I never had a problem achieving my goals. Until I realized the reason I was setting and achieving goals was all for the wrong reason.
I remember that day clearly. I was out for a walk listening to a podcast. The podcast host starts screaming through my earbuds YOU ARE NOT YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS!!!
I froze. I stopped walking. I felt stabbed in the heart. Felt uneasy. WHOA. THAT HURT! Tears started to form. You might be feeling the same way right now. Sorry. I am here for you.
I LOVED accomplishing things.
Certifications. CHECK. Create a website. CHECK. Speak at a conference. CHECK. Enter a speech contest. CHECK. The list keeps going on and on. CHECK. CHECK. CHECK.
I couldn’t help but be curious on why those words touched a nerve with me. I didn’t set out to define my worth from my accomplishments.
What is wrong with having a lot of accomplishments? NOTHING!
If you are not making them define who you are, as I was.
We all want to feel validated and accepted. I thought achieving goals was the way to do it, especially as someone who didn’t fit in with the crowd.
Achieving goals gave me the validation and acceptance I was looking for from others.
In reality, all I was getting was dopamine (feel-good hormone). I wasn’t feeling fulfilled or living my purpose. I would go from goal to goal, looking to feel worthy. Those accomplishments were all outside of me. They would never give me the worthiness I was looking for because that is an inside job.
This is where Life Coaching helped me. I thought I didn’t need coaching. I knew how to achieve goals. I didn’t realize the importance of setting goals for purpose and fulfillment over checking items of a list. Now I do!
Before every goal I set, I ask myself if this is for my fulfillment or validation? I now ask myself, “Does this goal bring value to my life?” or “Do I genuinely want this goal?” instead of focusing on the action steps to complete the goal.
I realized I was only going after goals that I knew were achievable. Never challenging myself. Yes, I received many certifications, but had challenges in utilizing them by not wanting to put myself out there. With coaching, I worked on the inner struggles of fear and self-doubt first, then I could show up in the world with ease.
When you attach your worth to a goal, you can’t fail, or it would mean you are a failure. I would get distracted by the bright shiny lights and set new goals. This constantly let me go down rabbit holes that led me nowhere.
Life Coaching helped me utilize my unique powers within myself to go after goals that I never thought were possible to achieve. I learned how to start with learning about myself to separate my accomplishments from who I am. Now when I fail, it means nothing to me.
This was a life-changer because I knew I was different than most. Learning more about myself helped me accept and love who I am without looking for validation from my accomplishments to feel worthy.
I also learned how to manage my mind to overcome fears, self-doubt, and perfectionism. Most importantly, I learned how to manage my nervous system to feel safe while stepping out of my comfort zone by putting myself out there in the world.
I could have never learned this on my own. It’s hard to know what you don’t know.
Using the ‘Beyond the SMART Goal’ process helped me achieve goals aligned with my desires.
I was able to follow my dream of becoming an entrepreneur – Learning about and accepting myself as worthy helped me build trust within myself to create my own rules in my business around my unique needs.
I enjoy living debt-free – When you realize happiness is a choice, and nothing outside of you will make you happy. You stop spending money on things that you don’t need.
Living a healthy life – When you accept yourself as you are now, you prioritize self-care. I fulfilled a long-held goal of becoming a certified yoga teacher.
As you can see its not only about achieving your goal…..
It’s who you BECOME in the process!!
It became my mission to help you feel worthy of having the life you want by showing you how to achieve goals simply & gently without letting the goals define who you are.
The biggest reason you struggle is that you didn’t learn how to manage the obstacles on the way to reaching your goal. The goal is to BECOME the person who knows there will always be obstacles and now has the skills to overcome them to reach your goals.
I am forever grateful for learning these skills. They not only allowed me to reach my goals but to help others reach theirs too.
This JOY for me turned into a career change, and I became a Life Coach to help others feel worthy of creating a life with meaning and purpose.
You are not your accomplishments. You are more!
Once you realize you are more than anything you accomplish. You start going after your goals with inspired determination and ease.
The best part of my story, I am nothing special. If I can do this, you can too! I hope that you always know you are worthy and enough today to reach any goal in life you want. You are capable of doing great things. The world needs your greatness!! Don’t let your fear and self-doubt stop you as I did.
I would love to help you reach all your goals!
It starts with getting to know yourself first. It’s FUN to learn more about yourself!! You will get a lot of AHA moments and understand what makes you do the things you do.
I offer this exercise in an one hour Complimentary Consultation.
Are you ready to get started in transforming your self to create the life you always wanted?
That’s my business side; on the personal side, I’ve been married for 30+ years. I’m a Mom to two wonderful adult children, a ‘war vet’ son and a ‘save the environment’ daughter who happens to be 14 years younger. She came into our lives when we needed her the most. I am also a dog Mom to our maltipoo Kirby. I enjoy being outdoors, walking, hiking, traveling, reading, yoga, and anything creative. If it all involves a beach, family, and friends, it’s appreciated even more!
