Is goal-setting something that’s in your head? Or is it something that you feel in your heart? Years ago I remember watching Saturday Night Live as a child and the quote, “I’m good enough, and I’m smart enough, and gosh darn it, people like me!” really stuck with me.
I spent a lot of time writing affirmations in my journal because it made sense logically that putting good thoughts into your head is probably going to help you to work towards those good things.
Recently, however, I’ve realized that putting your thoughts down on paper is a good starting point, but really what makes it energized or impactful is when it makes you feel something.
I’ve incorporated this in my book with my 3-step framework where, in financial planning, you need to figure out your goal. What does success look like for you? It helps you connect to what you’re doing.
So I’m interested to know how you go about setting your goals, do you write them down on paper? Do you ever look at it again? Or is it something that you really attach to a vision of what success looks like for you?
Money in and of itself really isn’t that important. But it is the opportunity and options that it gives you to do what you want. So let me know in the comment! Is goal setting something that happens in your brain? Or is it something that you feel as well?
