Whether you’re writing your New Year’s resolutions, or even better, goal setting for self motivation along the way during the year, it’s very important that your desires/goals match what you most deeply resonate with – that you connect with your desires and goals in life on the deepest level. This will encourage you even more and make every moment more fantastic as you’re accomplishing what’s most important to you. The following are 3 tips to identify your most important desires.
1) Determine the ultimate outcome of what you most desire when your reflect on goal setting.
Ask yourself the following question, “When I do (desire/goal), what will I get or achieve?” Keep asking this question until you identify the deeper desire behind what you originally wrote down. Then write down your updated desire.
For example, you may have written, “I earn $5,000 extra (by specific calendar date).” Upon reflection, you realize that your true desire is to earn the money to go on a family vacation to the Bahamas. So you would update your desire to, “I have $5,000 saved and pay cash for my family vacation to the Bahamas (by specific calendar date).”
2) Focus on personal goals, what is most important for you.
What society, family, friends and others want for themselves is fine. Respect what they suggest and understand where they’re coming from and the positive intention behind it.
However, for this exercise for personal motivation, write down what YOU want. Accept your desires and let the creativity flow. You can always go back and update your plan to reflect new insights along the way.
3) Do a quick future projection exercise.
Future projection is where you project yourself into a future point in time when you have attained what you desire.
- Relax yourself completely from your toes to your head. Allow your awareness to be in the present.
- Identify the things that are really important for you right now in the areas of finances, health, social, spiritual, and enjoyment.
- Now, project out 10 years in the future when things are even better. Every day, in every area, everything is enhanced and improved.
- Ask yourself, “What things are important to you and what have you accomplished in each area of your life?”
- Write those accomplishments down as your motivation.
