The year has just started. You’ve set your goals and expect (or at least hope) to achieve them this year.

Connecting to your goals on a deep level will help you with that.


This breathes life into your goals, which gives you a MUCH better chance of achieving them.

These are the questions I use to connect to my goals:


#1 Write down your goal and be very specific.

What exactly is it you want to accomplish?

I use the MTO method by Raymond Aaron to set goals that are doable AND stretch me at the same time.

(I explain how this super easy method works in one of my blogs – the link is below this article.)


#2 Why do you want to achieve this goal?

Take the time to feel into this, and keep giving answers until you feel in your bones you’ve reached the REAL, deep reason for wanting this.

You know you’ve reached this level when you feel joy. You feel lighter and more alive.

It feels like something opens up inside you.

And when you feel THAT, you’ve reached the real, deep, true reason you want this so much.


#3 How does it feel when you’ve reached your goal?

Write down a couple of words that resonate for you. Really FEEL them.

Which shouldn’t be too hard after answering question #2.


#4 Who do you need to be to reach this goal?

The person you are today is the person that manifested everything you have & experience in your business today.

This is NOT the same person that will get you to your next level.

New results require new actions, behaviors, beliefs, and a new state of being.


Who do you need to be to achieve this goal?

And how do you need to be?


#5 What do you need to believe to be able to manifest this goal?

Write it all down. This helps you see which inner garbage you can throw out / transform / have to deal with one way or another.


#6 What actions can you take to manifest this goal?

You don’t have to know every step right now.

That’s not possible and not necessary. Just write down everything you can come up with now – at least 3 to 5 (small) steps.


What and Why are YOUR responsibility. The HOW is up to the universe.

The universe will show you the steps you have to take, by bringing you inspiration, ideas, opportunities and people that can help you take the shortest, easiest way to manifest this goal.

Which, by the way, is NOT the same as saying that reaching your goal will automatically be easy when you add the universe to your team.

HA fucking HA!


There will ALWAYS be resistance, there will ALWAYS be fear, and if you want to stretch yourself into new territory, any shit you have to deal with will ALWAYS come up.

I said: the easiest way. Which can still feel hard sometimes!!!

I must take this ranty detour, people, because:

Wishing, wanting, and waiting for it to be easy is one of the main fucking reasons sooooooo many people never ever ever reach their goals.


And spiritual / heart-centered entrepreneurs have a tendency to then pin that on the universe:

It’s probably not the right time. It’s not in the cards for me. If it doesn’t feel easy and in the flow, it’s probably not the right path for me.

Sometimes it’s not, but other times?

It’s just you hiding behind your fear and trying to find the easy way out.

I’ve done this myself a million times.

It’s nothing to be ashamed of, simply something to be aware of and honest about so you’re not deluding yourself about the real reason you’re not getting what you want.

#7 And finally: ask the universe to bring you inspired ideas for actions to take, how to take them, and when to take them.

Don’t ask just once. Ask weekly. Daily. Whenever-you-need-ly.


When you’ve answered these 7 questions your goals feel vibrant, alive, and something you WANT to work on no matter what.

Now go manifest them 😉

P.S.  Here’s that link I promised:

This blog explains the MTO goal setting method by Raymond Aaron.
P.P.S.  Clearing the inner clutter as mentioned in step 5 is THE most important part of achieving or manifesting ANYTHING.

Your fears, doubts & beliefs determine which actions you do or don’t take.

And the energy or vibration underneath your actions, determines what you can and cannot receive.

You need to shift this on the INSIDE first if you want different or better results on the OUTSIDE next.

Not sure how to do that?

Or you DO know, but wish it would be easier and less of a struggle?

That’s where my brand new online business healing program for women entrepreneurs RISE comes in.

It helps you clear & heal your inner blocks, fears, and limiting beliefs.

Because ALL change and manifestation happen on the INSIDE first.

And when you’ve cleared your inner shit, you’re ready to take powerful action. And create remarkable results & significant shifts in your business.

It starts in January. And you can read all about & sign up for it here.

Sign up after January? In that case, the program starts when you start. (And you’ll also have instant access to all previous masterclasses)
