Living on purpose

Fear, Goals, Life Coaching

A goal is an objective, a target, the end point of a race — the finish line.

by Karen Turner — 

Are you a person who believes in setting goals — perhaps creating one-year or even five-year plans? In business and in home life, we are encouraged to set goals. However, I would like to encourage you to stop setting goals. Instead, set your intention upon what you want to create in your life.

A goal is an objective, a target, the end point of a race — the finish line. By its very definition, it is something that is out there. It is the proverbial carrot — the eternal brass ring that is always out of grasp. Goals are static; they are someday. We often think that when I accomplish this and this, then I am going to be “that.” Goals can be summed up in one phrase: “I’m gonna …”

A quantum coach will assist you to craft and create your intentions, rather than simply setting goals. Intentions are defined as aims that guide action. Intentions are the purpose and attitude that affect one’s actions or conduct. Action is implicit in that definition. Intentions are goals in motion. They are ongoing, present-tense, conscious creations that you act upon and which are assisted by the Universe/Source/the quantum field.

In quantum physics, it is understood that we exist in a field of infinite possibilities — all simultaneously. It is when we become the observer, and the conscious creator of our lives, that the multiple possibilities collapse or focus into the one possibility that we desire to see made manifest. As we move forward with intentionality, we put our desires into the field of all possibilities. Those intentions then manifest into the thing — the relationship, job, car, house, money, the quality of life that we desire — that we have been intending all along.

With coaching, you can move from uncertainty, doubt or fear into a life that is created by intention — a life on purpose. If you are already living intentionally, then coaching will assist you in being very clear and focused in aligning your intentions with your deepest truth — your truest desires, your passion and/or your purpose.

Some people might ask, “What is a coach, and why do I need one?” Ask Tiger Woods or Michael Phelps about the value of a coach. Both men are very “at purpose” in their respective sports. They know what they want to accomplish, and their coaches help them make it happen.

What do you desire in your own life? Don’t wait for it to happen. Take charge. Get help, hire a coach and start living on purpose.
