Goal Setting - Session 1

Step 1 - State the outcome as positive


Declare your goals. State them in clear and concise sentences in the first instance so that you have absolute clarity on what you are asking for.

Additional Guidance

Stating your outcome as a positive, as if it has already happened allows the brain to focus on what you want, not the lack of it. 


We want to make the brain and physiology focus only in the direction of ‘having of the goal’, so that all subconscious activity is focused on the right path, towards your goal


To be successful a goal needs to be stated in the positive and reflect something you want to move towards, such as; 


  • I am abundant

  • I eat a healthy well balanced diet

  • I enjoy and thrive in my work

  • I have loving and balanced relationships

  • I am fit and well

  • I enjoy feeling energised

  • I embrace my happy and wonderful family life

  • I am confident in my abilities

  • I excel in feeling proud of myself and my achievements


If you need any further help with this, start by using the positive affirmation button and learning from that as it will give you further support in how to write goals in the positive as if they are already here.

Step 2 - Set the context of your goals


Add the context to your goals, the where, the when and with whom will your goals happen?

Additional Guidance

Step 2 encourages you to understand and identify the context around your goals. Be thorough in considering the where, when and with whom you want these goes to happen.

Where do you want this outcome to happen? 

  • I feel confident and excel in the job interview

  • I am my ideal weight, feeling fit and well when I go to France for my holiday

When do you want this to happen? 

  • Putting a timeline around your goal as to when you require the desired outcome will increase your focus and assist in the planning processes. 

With whom do you want to achieve this outcome?

  • Are there any other people  that are involved or could impact on whether you can achieve this goal or not? If there are other people that could influence or are required for your goal to be achieved, you must be fully aware of this and what you might need from them and as a result if there are any actions you need to take to communicate and get others to support your direction.

Step 3 - What is the why to your goals, the goal behind the goal?


State the goal behind the goal. Add any second level goals to each of the goals you have already stated, add the why and be as clear as possible.

Additional Guidance

Why do you want this goal, what do you really want to happen by achieving this?

Goals are often set at the first level of intention, e.g. ‘I am following a healthy balanced diet’. The second level goal in this example is ‘So I loose one stone in weight by my July so that I can go on holiday and feel good about myself’

You must consider the full reasons, all the drivers about why you want the goal, to make sure that the full outcome of the goals matches with your desires, that there aren’t any other side effects or conflict, making sure your goals are  fully achievable. 

Step 4 - How will you know you have achieved your goal?


Embellish as much as you can and consider what each of your senses will notice when you have achieved your goal.

Additional Guidance

Embellish as much as you can, add as much detail about the goal materialising, be as detailed as you can be.

  • When I achieve my goal I will see… 

  • When I achieve my goal I will hear… 

  • When I achieve my goal I will feel… 

  • When I achieve my goal I will smell… 

  • When I achieve my goal I will taste…
