Awareness thru Goals


‘Goals create Purpose’

Personal goals can turn helplessness and hopelessness into hope!

6 Step Integratable Action Plan

Goals increase decision making skills & increases motivation

  • Step 1 & 2: 

Create your target goal and the compass for guidance

    • Step #1 – Creating the Target 


The target is the big view for the year. A simple way of taking this step is to imagine celebrating in a years time what it is you hope to  have achieved.  Some ideas of big targets:

  • losing 100 pounds
  • new, great paying job
  • finding a partner
  • opening one’s own business
  • getting a promotion
  • starting your own program that integrates your years of wisdom and creativity

This first stage is recognizing the intention.  It is not all the action steps!  This is the pivotal point of change.  It is what is meaningful enough to make those small commitments towards change.  

  • Step #2 – Creating the Compass


This breaks down the target into sizable chunks with target dates over the year.  

  • Step # 3: 

Increase success by integrating all life areas into your intention


    • Balance Nine Life Areas

This step introduces nine separate areas that balance ones lifestyle.  It is the point of reflection for capturing  the purpose for coming actions to achieve what one is truly longing for.  This is the step of balancing right and left brain activities to increase productivity. 

  • Step #4

    • Inspired 8 Phase Goal Setting

This fourth step continues to break down the target into doable actions.  It  is divided into 8 phases over the approximate 30 day period the new moon travels through it’s journey to next new moon.  

The lunar cycle is very forgiving and is one of the few goal setting techniques that integrates an alternative to the insidious right, wrong, punishment and rewards culture of other systems.  Can anyone truly be successful without the integration of how to transform behaviours creating self-judgement, comparisons, and  shame and blame?

  • Step #5 

    • Personal actions for daily life influences

The the 5th component of Inspired goal setting is a program that has a focus on daily influences for  personal goal setting.  When married together with Creating Balance in Nine Life areas, this step cultivates the integration of awareness and action planning.  It inspires an environment for making choices, decisions and taking actions with ease.  

  • Step #6 

    • Mentored Coaching

Achieving goals successfully does not happen in a vacuum.   When one taps into  the container of artful listening and guidance with the  aim is to deepen inner exploration a deeper clarity and commitment is achieved.  This style of mentored coaching increases the potential to minimize limited beliefs and conditions that normally become inner blocks to responding in one’s best interests.
