Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Theresa, but my friends call me Tee, you’re welcome to do the same! I help big dreamers who struggle with self-discipline and procrastination take action on their business & lifestyle goals so that they can have more independence and really just create the life they want. Unlike many who tell you achieving your goals takes a lot of time, I show you how to hit your goals in 90 days or less using proven strategies. Hit play and let’s talk about it!
Today we’re diving into the 3 myths that have kept you from turning your goals into reality. Now when you hear some of these you might think, “Hey, that one is true” but I want to challenge you to be open to seeing these beliefs from another perspective. Instead of fighting to be right and trying to hold on to a belief that has kept you comfortable and safe think about the life you want to create, full of financial independence, absolute time freedom, and so much more. How much faster will you achieve your goals if you adopt a worldview that helps you create more of what you want? How much faster will you turn your goals into reality when you let go of beliefs and myths that are holding you back? Right? So if you’re ready let’s dive in!
The top 3 goal-setting myths of 2019:
1. If I set a goal I’m not leaving room for God’s plan
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard people say things like “I’m not going to set any goals I’m just going to let God do His thing in my life, I don’t want to work against God’s plan for my life so I’m just going to wait and see what He does. I don’t want to make anything happen so I’m just going to trust that God is working it out.”
Now, listen to me carefully and hear my heart as you read this because I don’t want you to misunderstand what I’m saying here. God is not intimidated by your goals. What if and I really want you to consider this, what if, every dream on your heart was actually put there by God and He wants you to work with Him to turn them into reality?!
What if this big crazy dream that you have is actually a vision of what God has planned for you, but because you’re too afraid to set goals and put in some work you’re actually limiting God and restricting Him from directing and leading you to create what He wants?
You see, just a few short years ago (about 5 years ago) I believed this too! I thought man if I set goals and start working on them I might be working against God’s plan and I don’t want to do that. I want to show God that I trust Him by waiting on Him to tell me where to go when to go, how to go, and all of that good stuff. But here’s what I’ve learned. Believing and trusting God gives me the fuel I need to take action. That is the driving force behind every decision I make and every mountain I climb.
We don’t set goals AGAINST God’s plan we work with Him to create a plan together. Faith (trusting God) without works (action) is DEAD. It doesn’t work. Faith + goals = results. You’re not putting God on a timeline and giving Him deadlines no, no those are for you to have structure and get things done. You’re not putting God in a box and telling Him “You better come through by this day or else…” No, no, no. The plan is for you to execute.
There is a famous quote by Saint Augustine that says, “Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you.” This is the secret sauce to seeing God’s plan unfold in your life. You can thank me later!
2. Achieving goals require too much work
3. I have to set annual goals
Something I want you to realize is that all of these myths are actually beliefs that hold you back from maximizing your life, exploring your full potential, and being all that God made you to be. When you can uncover the roots hiding in the soil the flower is able to blossom. When you uncover the beliefs that are holding you back (hiding in your subconscious mind) you are able to grow.
Have one of these myths kept you from achieving your goals this year? Be honest with yourself. Did you hit all of the big crazy goals you were dreaming of or have you fallen short? Are you exactly where you thought you would be by the end of this year or are you disappointed by your lack of progress?
What stopped you from crushing your goal? Which of these 3 myths got in your way? Was it that you set an annual goal and procrastinated? Did you think if you did any work you would get in God’s way? Were you crippled by fear and didn’t want to look “stupid” if you failed? Once you have the reason in your mind grab your journal and write it down (hit play and I will walk you through this exercise)!
