When I was in university, I had no problem setting goals.
It’s funny how I was in my own little school bubble & my life flowed seamlessly.
Things were in alignment because my only big goal was to graduate.
Everything I did related back to school in some way.
But once I graduated and went off into the real world, I struggled with setting goals for myself.
I didn’t even really know what I wanted to achieve so how could I set goals?
I want to bring it back to what I did in university…
I would semester goals and yearly goals of what I wanted for my GPA.
& I would set goals for my test scores in order to reach that GPA.
I would constantly be checking my current grade & calculating what score I would have to get on my final in order to end up with an A in the class.
Basically, I set long-term goals (between 4- 12 months long).
I knew the action plan to reach those long-term goals.
I set short-term goals to keep myself accountable to the longterm goals.
I constantly checked in and monitored my progress.
I always had the skill to set good goals, but my environment had changed after graduation.
When you go through different seasons of life, it’s important to constantly bring your life back into alignment.
This will involve cutting things out that no longer serve you, doing more of what does serve you, setting new boundaries, assessing your environment, etc.
Once I was able to align my life again- my relationships, my new apartment, my new job, my new schedule…
I was able to set goals again.
Sometimes it’s not that you don’t know how to set good goals, but rather your current life is so out of alignment it is blocking those goals.
In my 1:1 coaching program, Life Alignment University, I teach my clients how to get their life back into alignment so they can achieve everything they desire.
If you feel resistance when trying to achieve a goal you have set, or even when trying to write those goals- your life is out of alignment.
Send me a DM if you want more info on how I can help you align your life, so you can conquer your goals.
& Drop a “🙏🏻” below if you felt this way when you graduated!
