Goals are important because they help us get where we want to go, do what we want to do, and be what we want to be. Goal-Setting is one of the most important life skills you can have.

Great thoughts, but...
I couldn’t agree more with what was said here. Right on. However, this was not a meditation, but rather a pep talk. Now I need to go meditate. I don’t expect to find this content in this app. Great stuff, just doesn’t seem like the appropriate place for it.

Goals help you become the person you are
This is very inspiring and invigorating. Even though I’m bedridden and housebound I learned I can I can still set goals. When you’re in bed all day you forget that you can do these things even though you might not be able to move around. There are small but very significant cost that I can set for myself.

On goals
Goals are important. I know what has worked for me before was setting small attainable goals for myself. Once i became good at that i would tackle bigger ones. I noticed my mind wandering to that thought. I still have a wandering mind, and that’s not a bad thing so long as it had to do with the message

goals are important to have in life. when you set goals you as a person are more happy, not as stressed, and it feels like a bunch of weight is taken off of you.

Goals are important. They are like a map. They both give you directions. Without a map or a goal, you would be lost. Goals give you a direction for how to guide your life.

Positivity is contagious. Positivity breads health and happiness. Look to see the good in the present, in life, and others always. Challenge yourself to see life through positivity everyday.

New office new routine
This session on goals resonates with me as I plan for and anticipate being in a new office location. The time is right for a new lunchtime routine, walking at lunch time this summer, organizing my office to feel peaceful and productive. My goal is to FEEL effective, engaged, and enjoying my work, and not in a status quo frame of mind.

I am not subject to my circumstances. Simply by setting goals and doing the work to achieve them I can develop my independence. I am certain that goals are gold! Thanks aura for sharing your valuable messages and kindness with us all. I really do love this app! 🌻

They don’t have to be large all the time. Daily goals I believe may help me find peace and build on my confidence. Need to improve focus and I believe small goals or daily/weekly/monthly goals will help with that.

Setting Goals
This is the second time today that I have had a conversation or a message about setting realistic expectations and goals. I’m trying to get to a place where I can set real goals for my future both in my life and my business. My main problem is knowing were to start in both my life and business.

I have never been one to be fond of goal setting motivations. I’ve heard it so many times that it only puts me in a worse mood when I hear the same lectures about it

Might be just what I need
My life is feeling very cluttered with possibilities right now. After listening and reflecting on this, I think sitting down and writing out my goals might just straighten everything out and make it clear what I should do next!

To Set Goals
I learned that even though I feel stressed quite a lot, I perhaps should set some clear and easy goals for myself. This way I don't have to worry about them in my mind for I'll be aware of them all the time.

Setting a goal is best by breaking it down into tasks. I will begin to accomplish my tasks and strengthen my emotional Fortitude. 😁.

I appreciated this session, in a moment where my life is changing and I’m going to start my new one in a few weeks, focusing on my goal and realizing how important it is to me, it is just so powerful and needed.

Goals
After a recent breakup, I was struggling to “get by” during the day because I was so upset (as that’s normal to feel). A friend told me to set small goals throughout the day and I thought she was crazy. After listening to how setting these mini goals can make a positive change to your life, I plan on starting my journey to make smalls goals and work towards bigger ones:)

Jag känner mig lugn och avslappnad
Detta behövs för att lugna ner mig själv och slappna av för att inte stressa igenom dagen. Ibland måste man prioritera bort måsten

Get into a goal setting habit
I’m afraid of settling goals I admit. But it’s better than moving backwards. Let’s do this Aura family. We got it. Day be day.

I will try to practice today. starting from personal goals, to career goals. i will use meditaion ifever i will be feeling anxious making those goals

The Importance of Setting Goals
Goals are dreams with a deadline! I think that this is the second time that this meditation has randomly popped up for me. I have started a very scary journey of moving away from my salaried corporate job to living my dreams. Nothing is random! Thank you for popping up and reminding me to keep going.

Session 5
Not as much as a meditation but more of a motivational speech. Would be ideal for a morning session but not ideal for my pre-sleep meditation I usually aim for

goals are hard to set as they challenge your potential but a challenge only makes you stronger .

Ziele setzten fällt schwer. grosse Ziele in kleine “Schritte“ unterteilen hilft. Ziele zu setzten stärkt das Mindset und Selbstbewusst.

I feel like these kinds of motivational speeches only make me worry more about the fact i don’t know what my goals are or what i want to accomplish/ where i want to go in life. How can you make goals when you’re so unceartain of what you want in life?

I learned parts of my body I never knew get tense when I feel distressed. This meditation helped me to focus on releasing tension in those parts.

I would like to start setting weekly goals again. This is a habit I fell out of after going back to work. It will help me feel empowered and more assertive.

Breaking big goals down
I struggle to remember and put into practice the act of breaking large goals down into manageable and actionable mini steps. I'm really trying to make a point of sitting down intentionally every day and make out a goal plan.

Goal setting
Goals are dreams in action. I need to break my goals down into manageable chunks. I need to sit down and figure out what the requirements are for promotion to full Professorship and set realistic and achievable goals for the next 2 years to achieve it by the end of 2020

I've already reached major life goals but not the degree that I want.
Perhaps I should accept where I am and continue to work towards are more stable and less stressful life.

I learned that setting goals give us purpose in what we do and strive us closer to them.

Goals
I never realized how empowering setting a goal and achieving it. This made me think of how I felt when I achieved the goals I’ve set for myself and how pleased I was with myself when I did. It also made me realize how dull life is when you’re just going through the life without a purpose or goal to drive towards.

I cannot step back. I am moving forward and I cannot quit! I want to do something for myself, improve myself and start feeling great about it! I want to be more than ordinary. Living in the 4 corners of my comfort zone is past. A new beginning. A fresh start. Life is too short. Beginning is now.

Goals
For years I was intimidated by, & feared, setting goals. I was raised not to have expectations of success, wealth, prosperity, & happiness. My enthusiasm was met with, “beggars aren’t choosy”, despite growing up in a large home on 5 acres of land with a father in management & working mother. Over the years I realize I sought out alternative messages & set goals, even if they were less structured. I met them & my life transformed, again & again. Today I can use this tool with much more power & confidence as I look back and see my own successful ability to make positive growth towards my own dreams.

I have not been serious about goal setting. Today I am going to sit down to write in my journal…. I’m going to write a concrete attainable goal to start my goal setting journey
