Setting My Goals

For the New Year

Family Activity

We all have dreams and desires to do great things. But many times, it is our Challenging Inner Voice that gets in our way to reaching these goals. We start doubting our ability or become afraid of what other people will say or don’t want to make an effort to reach our goals. Sometimes we give up in the middle, and sometimes we don’t even start.

But when we understand that this is a normal part of how we learn and grow, we can learn how to keep going despite the doubts and insecurities and other limiting beliefs put out by our Challenging Voice. And the more we practice turning down the volume of this voice, the easier it gets, and the stronger we become.
