Lisa 46 years old came to me with very specific goals. She is a married and the mother of three children. She felt it was time for some personal growth. She belonged to a personal growth group and desired to take on more a leadership role. She felt very strong about her spiritual life and wanted to create some discipline around meditation and reading the bible. At this time Lisa was moving and had very specific goals around organizing her new home and on top of that wanted to become a Life Coach and complete the program that she was studying.
We approached Lisa’s goals in a very organized manner. This style worked well for her. Each week we addressed what was on her mind and wrote down the goals for that subject. For example, we started with self-care, which is always important. She made a master list of things that were important to her in taking care of herself in order to manage the experience of moving forward. She found this a very helpful reminder.
Moving into a new home automatically put her into a position of creating and implementing many lists of things to do in order to support the process of moving to be as smooth of a transition as possible.
When the move was in a reasonable state we moved on to another conversation. Lisa discovered that she had resistance to taking on responsibilities. That was contributing to dissatisfaction in letting other people take over. Her next goal was to be accountable for her what she wanted to create. That prompted Lisa to begin to use the early morning for her meditation and bible reading and even studying to complete the Life Coaching program. She found that by waking up in the morning before anybody else and taking on the responsibility to do that was exponentially rewarding.
Another question on her mind was to figure out how she would put life coaching into practice when she was ready. I was able to support her in working with her first few clients by guiding her through the process that I had been through.
Lisa also discovered that journaling was a great tool for her to express herself and stay on the track that she desired. She had a lot of goals, all of which manifested. Lisa is clearly an example of someone who was very motivated
It’s always very important to check if your goals are “should’s” or “true desires”. The outcomes will always direct us to our true heart’s desires in order to “live in harmony”.
