Do you know what you want? Too many women don’t, and even if they do, they’re reluctant to own it. Setting goals is one of the most powerful ways to advocate for yourself and get what you want, but it can be difficult to know where to start. My guest today understands the most effective way for women to get together and not only talk about their goals but also go on to achieve them. Darlene Whitehurst is the president of Adsource Media, the founder of GF Global, LLC, and director of the international Goal Friends foundation. She is passionate about dream making, goal setting, and purposeful living, and she teaches women the transformational strategies of empowerment that come with advocating for yourself to get what you want most out of your life.
Today we discuss —
How to define your goals
- Too many women don’t even know what they want, but that doesn’t have to be you.
- Ask yourself open-ended questions like “What do I want my life to look like?” and “How can I create the world that I want to live in?”
- Clarify what you want to achieve to help you create distinct and attainable goals.
How to achieve your goals
- Create a treasure map or vision board so you can better visualize your goals.
- Write your goals down, create action steps, and set up goal deadlines.
- Report your progress to increase your accountability and likelihood of success.
- Employ the generation effect by physically creating your goals.
The power of women supporting each other
- Increased clarity in your goals will help you define both what you want and what you don’t want in your life.
- There is no limit to what women can achieve when they are supporting each other.
- Don’t be afraid to ask people for what you want and also expect the universe to give it to you.
- High drivers are humbly bold as well as feminine, nurturing, and supportive.
- Following the current pandemic, future in-person meet-ups are going to be more powerful than ever.
