Discover Your Goal Setting Type to Make 2017 Your Best Year Yet

If you’ve ever struggled to set or achieve goals, it may likely be because you are trying to emulate someone else’s style that isn’t really you!

I remember in coaching school we did an assessment that totally opened my eyes to this.  Up to that time, I had always thought of myself as a very analytical, listmaking type of person that loved structure.  But I found out that there were gremlins inside – and they wanted out!

In truth, I was someone who loved “organized spontaneity” – so whenever someone (like a boss for instance!) tried to tighten the screws with rigid rules, I rebelled!  And as the oldest child in my family I could do it with the best of them…

So in the model below, I thought I was a Micromanger, when I’m actually an Initiator.  And that has helped me build fun and spontaneity into my days and my scheduling – so my inner gremlins are working with me instead of against me!

As you start thinking about the new year, consider YOUR authentic Goal Setting Type – and incorporate it into your planning.  Join us for our training, “How to Attract Higher Paying Clients in 30 Days or Less Combining Numerology and Advanced Strategy” Mon. and Tues.
