If traditional Goal Setting exercises worked, why are we setting the same New Year's Resolutions year after year? If SMART Goals were so SMART, why haven't we achieved our goals and started living the life of our dreams?
In this book, mentor, speaker, and leadership coach Stephanie Dee Smith shares the secret to moving Beyond SMART Goal Setting and on to Dream Goal Getting. She links our goals to our values, and suddenly it all becomes clear.
We’ve been setting the wrong goals!
Stephanie leads you through the 5 Steps to Discovering Your Core Values and Living Your Best Life Ever. And she reassures you that it’s not too late. If you think you have missed your opportunity for achieving your life’s Big Dreams, she shows readers, in her slightly “in your face” motivational style, “that is where you are wrong. And if you wait long enough, you are going to be DEAD WRONG.”
Every one of us was created for some great purpose.
At some point in our lives we have all felt that silent nudge. It starts like a quiet pull on our soul – a constant, almost sub-conscious reminder that tells us we should be doing something more with our lives.
The longer we ignore it, the louder it gets.
Stephanie shares a quote by Andrew Carnegie, “If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy, and inspires your hopes”, reminding us that goals aren’t about checking boxes on a list, they are about inspiring our hopes and dreams.
Success in achieving those goals is simply a result of finding the right values-based habits and taking the necessary action steps to make them a part of your very essence.
If you’ve seen Stephanie speak in person, you’ve seen her big, excited personality fill the room. In this book, she has captured that lively spirit and her famous quips jump from the page, as in “You are not a tree” and “Never fight a goat over a patch of grass”.
