How do you define yourself? This is an important question that requires reflection. For example, do you perceive the steps in your life as courageous, or does your ego’s perception of life as survival define your existence? To change this perception requires you to stop, embrace the present and seek the support of others who refuse to encourage your old behaviors.

If you are like most people, you are probably tired of reading the same information about goal planning over and over again and still never getting results. So what is the missing link?The answer is spirituality. “Goal planning with spirit,” as I put it. I am not talking religion here. I am talking about the universal elements that make up our lives and affect us whether we are aware of it or not.Bringing spirituality into your goal planning can create lightness and joy, and it allows you to flow with your goal achievement rather than struggling uphill to reach a difficult...
