Are you a self proclaimed personal development junkie like me? Podcasts, audiobooks, actual books, online courses… scrolling IG or FB for doses of inspiration? It can fuel you with ideas for an ongoing list of dreams and goals… but it can also leave you feeling, at times, less than enough.

It’s like those dreams and ideas become this looming to-do list of things you’ve yet to accomplish. And you realize that sometimes the goal you set for yourself isn’t the goal you truly want. 

It’s a terrible feeling to know that you could be making strides toward your big goal, but those other items on your list make you feel…stuck. And out of sheer stubbornness, you just don’t want to take an item off your to-do list. 

…and so, it sits there, week after week and month after month, making you feel guilty about the lack of progress you’ve made. Sometimes preventing you from working on the goals that really matter. You know, the ones that are actually going to make a difference?

The good news? There’s a solution and it comes down to asking the following questions.

  • Do I even want this?
  • What’s going to be different in my life if I were to achieve this?
  • Why is this so important to me?
  • When I achieve it, what then will be possible for me?
  • Imagine you’ve just accomplished your goal, how would you act today? 

Today, I’m giving you permission to slow the heck down and take a good, hard look at your list of goals. It’s time to get unstuck. It’s time to Marie Kondo the crap out of that list so that you can have the wins and successes you’ve been dreaming about and (bonus!) actually feel like you’re succeeding.  

To do that, you have to take back control of your thoughts, your action items, and your dreams. Isn’t it about time?

The truth is that your goals should pull you up not push you down and that’s exactly what this conversation is about today. Let’s get out of the mud and start living our dreams. Are you ready to join me?

Take Action: 

Pick the one bucket that you are most excited about – the one you are going to take down the road with you. Are you 100% committed to making that happen? If so, it’s time to take action!

Highlights from this Episode: 

(10:47) – we’re feeling like we’re constantly failing because that damn list is looming over us and I’m not even talking about the to do list right now. I’m talking about that dreams list.

(11:13) – oftentimes that list of dreams, that list of goals, the list of things that we want to be, it’s filled with things that we might not even want.
