They are created by you, they grow and change by your design and will become your past.
Goals are the milestones in your story.
Look at the goals you create as the stepping stones you have placed down and can easily be moved and altered. You created them, you can change them.
View your goals as always evolving to suit your present situation with the force to change your future and be a part of your past.
Do not take on board that your goals are fixed points and cannot be altered because when goals are fixed and do not turn out exactly how you wanted, then blame and guilt are used to explain why you did not serve the goal.
The striving creates its own glass ceiling and allows in the feeling of never good enough, a fertile ground for feeding stress, excessive striving and anxiety.
Let go of the grip on fixed goals.
A fixed goal creates this spin cycle, a stagnant fixed point in time that will never be the right fit for a person who is always learning, always evolving, always expecting better.
Every day your goals can morph and create a fluid momentum, the words will change but the original intention has expanded. Goals are a tool for working towards being better. You are not backing away from your goals, see them as part of your life and so are expected to evolve.
Goals are meant to laser your focus to step out your first action, then your second action, your third action... The actions you have determined are fluid and dynamic.
Use action verbs to see your goals as a dynamic force. It is your creation and it is you who will continue to breathe life into these actions.
When your heart is determined your mind and body will follow.
Ask questions of what, when, how and why these goals mean so much to you.
Your questions are fresh, energised and focused for a new day, new week, new goal ...
What would you like to have happen instead?
What is it like looking back to the way it used to be?
With all your new insights what is it like in the future?
What am I now so grateful for?
Who is the person I am willing to become?
