For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been talking about how to align yourself with goals that really matter particularly in your career.
Goals that really align with what it is that you’re here to do.
In case you missed previous videos you can catch up and learn:
After watching these videos you’ll now know:
- how to pick your career goal
- why that’s important to you
- how to tune knowing you’re on the right track in your body
Once you’ve got these steps down pat you’ll be looking into how to make that happen.
Watch this week’s video blog to learn how to keep negative self-talk at bay and make your goals a reality.
Short on time? Read on for the transcript.
In last week’s video, I shared with you my goal of becoming a writer.
I know that that’s what I want one day.
When I do choose to do that in the second half of the year, I won’t have to wait to be an already successful author in order to be comfortable with writing. When I’m writing, I can say I am a writer.
Now saying I’m a writer is not about me being particular and ego-driven in terms of what I call myself…it’s really about stepping into the energy of being an author.
There’s a famous phrase that everybody throws around when it comes to being at work or negotiating or achieving a big goal and that phrase is:
To act “as-if”
Now, acting “as if” can be a really helpful tool to have the bravado before:
- going into a meeting
- discussing your your pay review with your boss
- doing something outside of your comfort zone
But more than that…
Acting “as-if” goes deeper because you energetically become what it is that you want.
So going back to my example of being a writer…if I was to act “as-if”…I would step into already being a writer. I would take action, approach problems, interact with people in a different way.
As I mentioned in the earlier videos….as Albert Einstein said:
“You cannot solve a problem at the same level of consciousness that created it.”
When you’re in a different state and you tell yourself…
“I’m a writer. I’m a successful New York Times best selling author”
Then I can step into that energy.
I can embrace the mindset of a successful writer by asking myself:
- How would they approach this?
- What’s their first step?
And you can almost step into their shoes and make better choices and take better action.
This is much more aligned than the other way where you’re in the fray thinking:
“I don’t know what I’m doing. I don’t know what to do. I’m overwhelmed.”
Can you feel the difference?
So this week I want you to really practice stepping into that version of you that has achieved that goal that you want.
What does she wear?
What does she say?
What decisions does she make?
What boundaries does she have in place?
Just practice stepping into her.
You know in the morning….something that I do is, I put on this ring I bought it for myself.
When I put on this ring I really take a conscious moment to step into all of myself in the highest potential.
It’s a priming exercise to get in the zone and that really helps me embody that better way of being and that energy so that I can make smart decisions and handle what life comes to me on that day.
I don’t get it perfect. I get angry. I cry.
I mess up all the time BUT consciously stepping into my higher self makes me a far happier, more peaceful person because I’ve taken the time to consciously step into this higher self.
In summary: embody that version of you that has already achieved the goal you’re looking to achieve.
I’d love to know…
- How does embodying you having already achieved that goal feel?
- How does this practice land for you?

Wishing you a beautiful week.
