Krista here. Are you a major list maker or someone who likes to go with the flow and let things happen? Either way, it’s important to put time and energy into setting goals in order to manifest them in your life. We’ll cover 7 helpful tips to elevate your goal setting process and set yourself up with the best possible opportunities for manifestation.

In this post, you’ll learn:

  • The importance of goal setting in manifestation
  • The goal-setting process I’m using right now
  • How to examine your why
  • Why it’s crucial to feel what it would be like to succeed
  • How to set up a practical schedule
  • How to utilize your community to support your goals
  • The importance of letting go
  • Why you absolutely must prioritize yourself

Let’s talk about goals. For a long time, I was super specific about what I wanted to create and manifest. I saw a beautiful result in my life — but I felt a bit obsessed with ‘doing’ and not ‘living.’ So I let off the reins a bit and decided to live life for a few years. Right now, I am ready to re-commit to a goal-setting process.

Here are my 7 tips for effective goal setting:

1. Examine your why

Why do you want what you want? Get very specific about the reason because you’ll need to come back to it regularly when things get tough and you want to give up. As you know, the why is the key.

2. Feel it

How can you live in the feeling that you have achieved these goals right now? This can help you really notice when you’re playing small or making excuses. I tend to think, ‘Well I don’t have time for that, or I can’t do that because of x, y, z…’

This practice helps me realize what my limiting beliefs are. Once I am able to identify them, I can work with them through meditation, journaling, therapy, or simply with mindfulness. I like to take five minutes a day to really feel what it would be like to have achieved the goals I set – a la Joe Dispenza style.

3. Schedule

What type of schedule for your day reflects your goals? How can you adjust your schedule today to better reflect where you want to be? In addition, what kind of schedule works best with your personal goal-setting style?

Are you a major list maker or someone who likes to go with the flow and let things happen? If you want to learn more about your Human Design perspective to see if you’re a specific or non-specific manifester, check out our dear friend and Human Design expert Jenna Zoë’s page here. This helps you understand if it’s better to be super specific about your style or more go with the flow.

4. Seek community and support

What conversations do you need to have and with whom to reinforce your goals?

5. Let go

Ask for support from your spirit team to help you reach your goals. Lean into their guidance and messages as you work your way through to your next level.

6. Prioritize yourself

Get clear on what needs to happen in the calendar to reflect your priorities. Block off time, make your schedule work for you, and be serious about creating space in your life for what you want.

7. A huge point

Our coach Aaron Rose says, “Big change is made in small moments. The power of having a daily devotional moment with your goals cannot be understated. Even if you’re taking three minutes to see yourself reaching millions more people, or 30 minutes to sit with your creative work (even if you ‘don’t produce very much’ that day), that adds up dramatically over time. This is about getting your brain into a state where you’re not waiting for permission or putting off things that call to you, and you’re instead moving as if it’s part of your reality right now.”

It’s time to re-commit to the goal-setting process and embrace what is meant for us. Comment below with what goals you’ll be prioritizing for the rest of 2021!
