#PERSPECTIVES | One Shift to Achieve the Goals That Matter



If you have been wondering how you can start achieving the goals that matter, this episode of #Perspectives is for you. We have done something a little different for this episode, taking you straight into a training room with Sharon Pearson and a group of wonderful life coaches to explore why and how we set aspirational goals and the one shift it really takes to achieve them.


- 0.00 Why I don’t coach people on what they want first but secondary

  • Understanding that the goal we set and what we say we aspire to achieve isn’t our truth.

  • We set aspirational goals as a way to mask our current state.

  • We think we’re going to go for it consciously but unconsciously we have no intention of doing it. It’s a way of displacing our pain and shame of not living up to who we thought we’d be.

- 5.00 What I coach on now

  • I don’t coach on the goal someone wants to achieve; I coach on the truth of how they are hiding, who they’re not being, what they are missing about themselves.

  • I hope to recover who they’re meant to be and how they can grow and as they change their perception of themselves, they change their goal because their goal was a way of putting outside of ourselves if I get that then I’m okay.

  • What if we reverse it and coach people on how to be okay rather than how to achieve a goal to feel okay.

- 6.20 Reaching Goals isn’t about working harder it’s about changing your strategy

  • Start getting your mind working for you then ask yourself well now I know who I am and I love who I am what is it I’m really looking to create.

- 7.30 Ambition with meaning is misery

  • That’s why people keep pursuing the goal wondering if they’ll ever catch happiness and they never do because their strategy is wrong from the beginning.

- 7.58 Over Ambition and Under Ambition

  • Under Ambition is a sense of give-up-ness

  • When I coach someone and I see them flaking and being completely disconnected from even having a go, I’m seeing what I call give-up-ness
