Some experts claim you should have huge, gigantic, lofty goals. So big that they scare you.

While I don’t disagree on setting a higher than normal or ever-experienced goals…As they do help you go further…I have found with myself and my clients…Big doesn’t equal believable.

Let’s say you want to create an income goal. Some kind hearted coach says…You gotta go BIG. Scary and hairy. This in my experience causes paralysis, overwhelm and procrastination. Simply because you don’t believe it AND you aren’t in alignment with the actions.

So what to do?

Bring that goal closer babe. Make it more believable, more of a stretch rather than another lifetime feeling.

If you are not connected to a goal from a vibrational, energetic hell yeah…then you can bet your life it will become a big HELL NO. And no one said goals were set in stone. So do me a favour and set goals, they are needed to help you stay focused in your business.

When I set my first money goal, it was suggested to me to make it $10,000 a month. I would literally stare at this goal, and just not feel it.  

I was making zero, so how could I close this gap? I just needed something to get my teeth into, cling to the edge so to speak, so that I could keep climbing. So I changed my goal to $3,000 a month. This was totally believable because I had made this in a month in my paying job…So I knew that if I had manifested, attracted it and was worthy of it in that space…Then bring it on over to my business space.

This was the ‘stretch’ goal that I needed to focus on. It fuelled me up every day I wrote it, I could see and feel it, and could take the actions without feeling paralysed by the gap!

Have a go yourself:

Check in with all of the goals you have set.

How do you feel when you read them, see them and visualise them?
Are you freaking excited and it feels so touchable with some work to get there? OR Are you overwhelmed, flooded with “woe is me”?

If it isn’t a hell yeah.. Adjust. That’s it. No song and dance. Just make it an amount that you have attracted before or believe it can exist and start there.

Disclaimer alert:

This isn’t a “get out of setting GREAT goals” blog. Nor it is asking you NOT to step out of your comfort zone. I am all about helping you to start, stay in the game and then ramp it up!

Then once you totally believe it…You make it bigger, badder and hairy as hell. The difference at that point is that you totally believe it. You keep taking bigger actions to achieve it, you create a momentum and daily actions to attack it. Rather than collapsing in a heap when you swing no where near that TOO big of a goal.

Some will say that this is going against ALL of what we are told…But what if it was just another way to get there. A way that felt doable. I want to see women get their faster not give up and in my opinion as soon as I made a goal stretchy not crazy horse…I smashed it.

This financial year I tripled my income…Go figure all done on believable and slightly hairy goals.
