I talk today with Grace Edison, an enrollment coach here at Yogahealer and Yoga Health Coaching. We talk about setting the right goals for your next phase of growth (easier said than done, I know). People set goals, but they are often not the right goals.

It is really interesting how that happens. People either set goals that are way beyond their skill level, that are too challenging. Then they feel out of integrity with themselves, they feel awful, and they often don’t know why they didn’t hit their goals, they don’t take time to analyze that. Or people set the wrong goal, a goal that doesn’t build the right competencies to get to where they want to go next. Today we are going to talk about that process of building the right short-term goals that build toward the long-term goals.

I rap with Grace Edison about:

  • Taking a realistic and regular look at what strengths you have, and what strengths you’ll need to leverage and build
  • How to use awareness of time and habits to structure solid goals
  • The importance of knowing how to use your community to help you get clear


What you’ll get out of tuning in:    

  • Understand how to tell when the goal is too big, and how to adjust
  • Insight onto how to use your relationships to get clear on what is realistic
  • A ton of tips and tricks on how to re-train your awareness for realistic goals
