Goal setting can be overwhelming for many people, but it doesn't have to be. If you reframe your goals and start by focusing on how you ultimately want to feel instead of what you want to attain or accomplish, your goals will have more depth. In this video, you'll learn Danielle LaPorte's top four tips for discovering your core desired feelings.
1. Feel What Feels Good. When goal setting this way, first ask yourself how you want to feel in three main categories: lifestyle and livelihood, body and wellness, relationships and society. Write stream of consciousness lists for each category listing out your desired feelings for each.
2. Look For Patterns. Identify the words you repeat in these lists, or notice the patterns that are coming up. Begin to narrow down your list of words that will help with goal setting through your desired feelings.
3. Declare Your Core Desired Feelings. Ask yourself what's beneath a feeling for you. For example, maybe "success" is really about freedom, or love, or creativity. This is a good time to turn to a dictionary and look up the definitions of words -- every word is its own world.
4. Ask Yourself: What do I want to do, have or experience to create my core desired feelings? This is the beginning of goal setting with soul. This is where you make connections between how you want to feel and what will actually help you feel that way.
