Stop chasing goals – live your life intentionally – Are Goals Really Just An Attempt To Chase A Feeling?

Are you endlessly making lists….bucket lists, to do lists, quarterly objectives, accountability lists….going after accomplishments outside of yourself and then praying and hoping you will be fulfilled when you get there…… or have you given up altogether? Stop chasing goals – live your life intentionally

Be grateful for life’s treasures. Be thankful for life’s little gifts. Pay attention to the present; surround yourself with people and things you love. Build your foundation for happiness. – HuffPost

Don’t you think we have this backwards and inside out…….. and we are running ourselves in circles.

Ideally wouldn’t it be better to first get clear on how we actually want to feel then lay out our intentions?

When your most desired feelings are consciously formed then you can plan your year, your holidays, your career, your life.

When inner clarity is attached to outer action you will start to feel how you want to feel more often…….ahhhh that feels better! Instead of chasing a future feeling that we will get after “x” happens….. we are choosing to live it daily.

Decisions become easier to make because you are clearer about what you say “no” to and what you say “hell yes” to.

You will…… complain less, feel more optimistic and open-hearted and find it easier to return to your centre in challenging times.

There will be way less proving, a lot more living and more to give to the world.

This is a concept called Desire Mapping, that I just love to share and teach at retreats and workshops.

The next 2-day retreat is August 7-9 at St Andrew’s Beach – Nourish Restore Empower. Click here for details.


Stop chasing goals – live your life intentionally  – Knowing how you want to feel is the most potent form of clarity.

Generating those feelings is the most powerful thing you can do with your life.

Use your feelings to access your soul.

I do believe that we are here to design a life that feels good. Feel good at work, in your day, in your relationships, in your heart.

If you want to learn how to make goals with soul come and join me in August.

Next Desire Mapping workshop will be September (date to confirmed). Expressions of interest are most welcome. Details to be posted in the next few weeks.
