Goal Setting Tips
Use these tips and ideas to help you form goals, intentions and affirmation statements for your Aroma Freedom session or just for general goal setting and creating powerful affirmations with meaning that touch deep in your soul

Use this as a guide rather than a checklist, simply incorporate some of these ideas into your Aroma Freedom sessions

Allow your goals and intentions and affirmations to shift and change over time to reflect new understandings as you uncover and shed old memories and what no longer serves you

Ownership

Goals, intentions and affirmation statements are all formed in the present tense using ownership words
Examples:
- I am
- I choose
- I recommit
- I claim
- I create
- I remember
- I enjoy

State your goal and intention as if you already attained the thing desired

Instead of stating what is not, state what is

Using the word "want"  is not as productive as some of the other statements above. The word "want" means a lack of something (being in want) and actually subconsciously reinforces the fact that you lack the thing you desire

Instead of moving away from something move towards something. Flip your goal around so for example instead of saying "I am never late"  say "I am always on time" to focus the brain on the thing desired

Finding The Right Goal

- Identify something you desire in your life
- What sort of person do you wish to be?
- What is something you wish to achieve?
- What is your heart's desire?

Create A SMART Goal

Creating a goal that is specific, measurable, accountable, reasonable, and timely is very effective

We need to believe our goal is actually attainable otherwise we create in ourselves doubt

Tune Into Your Gut

Explore the first thing that comes to mind. Tune into your first thought, feelings or words that arise. This is your gut feeling before you had time to edit, apply memory lessons that don't serve you, apply faulty reasoning and self-doubt

Speak only what you choose to have come into your reality now and into the future

Two Final Thoughts

Intention

A goal can also be an intention - an idea, ambition, purpose. Is there a particular quality you'd like to cultivate? Why is that quality important to you? What will you gain by having more of that quality? 

Sometimes intentions are general and fuzzy - things like "I am organized" so get more specific. The intention is to organize your space and define why you desire to be organized. You might create steps that define how you'll get there. This changes your intention into a SMART goal. Something like "I'm going to clean one pile of papers per day and organize them into file folders" are specific measures to get you to your intention

Dependencies

Goals that depend on others to reach are not effective and can be frustrating - things like "I'm going to schedule 3 clients this week" is completely dependent on someone else being available, agreeable to schedule and then making the appointment

A more effective goal would be defining the thing (action items) you can take to help you reach that ultimate goal - things like "I'm going to reach out to 20 individuals this week and discuss how I can serve their need"
