Law of Attraction
Having set your goals is one thing but keeping focused and on track is quite another thing altogether. If you are not working with a coach or extremely motivated to achieve your goal on time it is easy to lets things slip.
Often when we set goals we are inspired and motivate, keen to achieve whatever it is we want. However it is easy to sit back and expect things to happen, before you know it often time has flown by and little progress has been made. It’s not that we don’t want the goal .. just that it is not as motivating when having set a goal then you have to actually take action to make it happen
Most goals require some form of physical engagement, whether it be to write a book, lose weight, run a marathon, change jobs. It takes a lot of thinking and effort to turn your dream goal into a reality and it is so easy to start making progress then become complacent or become side tracked only to find that time has slipped by and your not making the progress you had planned or have lapsed with the progress you have made.
How best to stay focused and on track:
- Write your goals down, make sure they are SMART goals and have a deadline.
- Next chunk down you goal into smaller, achievable steps – working on one at a time makes it less scary if it is a big goal.
- Chart your progress – it’s motivating to see what you are achieving as you go.
- Work with a Coach – or if that is not possible join a Coaching Group. Meet with other people who have goals they are working on will help you feel motivated as you help and support each other.
If you are interested in our Coaching Groups you will find our sessions listed on Eventbrite
We also run GOALS sessions for people who would like to check in with a coach on a regular basis to keep themselves motivated and on track . https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/got-goals-keeping-focused-and-on-track-tickets-15899401538

Well we passed Blue Monday and how many of us are still on track with our goals? Setting goals is the easy bit.

I have spent some time recently working on the 2014 calendar for the PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT CIRCLE NORTH EAST and am pleased to say it is pretty much finalised.
We have 3 presenters presenting monthly workshops:
- Coaching Cafe – Aly, Newcastle Performance Coaching, weekly 1pm-3pm January – February then monthly

I’m running a 7 week group coaching course starting in January and February, as well as a few one-off workshops (confidence, self-esteem, stress management etc) and will deliver the above if for any reason the usual presenter is unavailable.
For the exact dates and locations of meetings please check our website. http://www.meetup.com/Personal-Development-Circle-North-East
I do have some places left for ‘guest workshops’. If you are interested in presenting a workshop for the PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT CIRCLE NORTH EAST please get in touch and with details of your website, the workshop and some information about yourself. Please note any guest presentations should not conflict with any of the other presenters above. Priority to presenting to the group is always given to PAID PDCNE members.
We have the Christmas stress-buster night on Saturday 7 December 2013 if you are interested in presenting to the Personal Development Circle North East then come along and deliver a 15 minute presentation. Coming along to this event is an ideal opportunity for you to meet me, the other members of the group and discuss future workshops.
Once I have finalised the PDCNE calendar for 2014 in mid December I will not be adding any new presentations/workshops until the summer except for our regular presenters and a couple of people I’m in the process of securing dates with.
In addition to the Personal Development Circle North East I also run 2 other meetup groups – PARENTS NORTH EAST and PROFESSIONAL PEOPLE NORTH EAST. The opportunity to present in workshops applies to ALL 3 groups I run.
Not everyone in the group is interested in presenting which is great, all members contribute to the group whether it’s at a social, by attending, supporting or help promoting events or getting involved in presenting.
In order to be successful the groups rely upon members being active so join us, take time to look around the websites and book into anything that appeals (someone has to be the first to RSVP!!) you can always change your mind nearer the time.
Will questioning our values make us happier?
The decisions we make in life are often dictated by our values and beliefs. Most of your values and beliefs would have came from those around you as you grew up; friends, family, teachers, peers. The values and beliefs that we have are what have shaped us into who we are today.
The values and beliefs we have are what empower us to take action but also what holds us back at times. If you look back at your life you can often recall where they came from. Write down what your values and beliefs, ask yourself where they originate from and look for evidence to back them up.
For example being told you are clumsy by an aunt when you were a child may have caused you to grow up believing that you are clumsy. Interestingly when you look back at your life you are most likely to recall events and occasions when you dropped or damaged something. However by turning things around and looking for situations where you have not been clumsy, dropped things etc and focus on times where you have can evidence this is not the case your views may change.
Your values and beliefs could be holding you back from succeeding in life; impacting on decisions you take. For example, not starting a new relationship because you were hurt previously, not seeking career progression as you are worried your peers may resent your success and your relationships may suffer, not losing weight because you have been unsuccessful previously.
Just because you have been unsuccessful previously does not mean that you are a failure, it just means that you may need to look for other resources or skills to help you achieve what it is you are seeking to do.
What is it that makes you happy?
Take some time out with a pen and paper;
- Write down 10 things you love doing.
- Put the list in order as to the things you enjoy doing most at the top of the list.
- Write down next to each answer at least 7 things about what it is that you love about it.
- Now write down 10 things you hate doing.
- Again put the list in order and put the things you most dislike doing at the top.
- Ask yourself what it is about each thing that you least like doing and why, try to come up with 7 answers for each.
- Ask yourself if there is any evidence to support why you dislike the things you hate doing? Has something been said or done to make you feel this way.
- Now ask yourself what 7 things could you do to make doing each activity more enjoyable.
- Do you feel differently about them differently now?
- Are you willing to give them a go?
This is more than just identifying a list of things that you really like doing and the things that you hate doing. The reasons why you like or dislike something often comes down to the values and beliefs you have. This is normal, as is the desire to challenge our ways of thinking so that we can live a happier more fulfilled life.
The same process applies when you are setting goals. The secret to great goal setting is more than just writing a list of ‘wants’. Take time to set goals around things that you love to do and this will make them easier to achieve. If you come across challenges do not give up, look at the challenge and explore ways to get around them, is the challenge down to your values and beliefs? If so, look for evidence to disprove a limiting belief and identify ways that you are able to move forward.
When you live your life in accordance with your values and beliefs you will be happy and fulfilled. If you have limiting beliefs that are not serving you it is fine to question where you got the belief from and seek to replace it with a more empowering belief that will serve you better.
When should you make a start? No time like the present! Why put off what you can do now?
