Goal Setting 101

This is your introduction to goal setting 101.

Goal setting is more than just having an idea or writing an intention down. They’re about taking action towards achieving your dreams, goals, and desires.

To increase the likelihood of achieving your goals, the stronger you set your foundation (plan, specifics of the goal, etc.), the higher chances you have of completing it because you have more clarity and direction.

Below is a process that you can use to create structured goals that will give you a higher chance of being able to achieve them using the S.M.A.R.T. method. When creating a goal, use this method as a checklist and guideline.

S = Specific

Goals that are specific have a much greater chance of being achieved. To make your goal specific, answer the 5 W’s:

  • When do I want to achieve this goal by?
  • Where will this goal take place?
  • Why do I want to achieve this goal?
  • Who’s involved in this goal?
  • What exactly do I want to achieve?


Generic goal – I want to make 6 figures.

Specific goal – I want to make $100,000/year from my online business by September 2023 so that I can be financially free.

M = Measurable

In order to know if you’re making progress towards your goal, you must have a way of tracking it. Ask yourself these questions:

  • How will I monitor my progress?
  • How many/much?

Example: I want to make $100,000/year from my online business by September 2023 so that I can be financially free. I will aim to sign on 5 new clients every month.

A = Achievable

This point gives you an idea of what you need to achieve the goal. You can ask yourself:

  • What resources do I need to make my goal happen?
  • Do I have these resources? If not, what do I need to do to get them?
  • Have others achieved this goal?

R = Realistic

Based on the resources required for your goal, can this goal be accomplished realistically based on your current situation? Can you really commit to achieving this goal?

T = Timely

Setting time limits or deadlines on your macro and micro goals is super important to keep you on track! Set yourself up with these questions:

Does my goal have a time limit or deadline? Or by when do I want to achieve my goal?

You can use those questions for the main goal, as well as all of the micro goals that lead up to it. When you get to this point, mark down a date that you want to accomplish each goal by, put it in your calendar, and go do it!

Techniques To Connect To Your Desire & What You Want Most In Your Life


Kiana Ng Yoga

WHAT DO I WANT?! Use these tips and techniques to connect to your desires & gain clarity in what it is you truly want!

Are you having trouble connecting to what it is that you truly want? There are many factors that could be blocking you from understanding what it is that you really want on a soul level. Some of these include: denial, fear, lack of connection to self, and external obstacles.

The below exercises are aimed to help you inquire within yourself to see what your soul really yearns for.

Here’s the thing though… You have to be willing and courageous enough to stay real, truthful, & honest with yourself! Today is about breaking through fears and stepping into the light. It’s about giving yourself permission to daydream!

When you’re working through these exercises, make sure you dedicate time alone with no interruptions so that you can stay connected & focused. A great way to connect to your desires is by grounding down into your body first with breath or physical movement. If you practice yoga, I have a free class available here.

Alright, let’s get started…


Techniques To Connect To Desires

  1. Meditate or journal on the following prompts: What would you do if you knew you could not fail? What would you do if you didn’t have to worry about how others would be effected? If you weren’t afraid, what would you do? What brings a smile to your face or makes you go WOW whenever you think about it?
  2. Create a vision board. This is such a great method to get your imagination and creative juices flowing! You can do this online by copy pasting pictures and words into a word document, or if you like printing out and sifting through magazines, then get a bristol board to cut and glue! The best part is that you can create multiple vision boards for each area of your life. Once completed, place it somewhere you’ll see it everyday as a reminder to keep going after what you want!
  3. The perfect day, week, month, or year. Write out what your perfect day would look AND feel like! Get specific. For example, if you’re talking about your house, get into detail about the rooms, how many levels, interior & exterior specifics, etc.
  4. Values. What are your values? Head to my post here to help you determine what your values are in any area of your life. This will give you insight on how you want to live so that you can take action to make changes where things don’t align.

OK. Start with these & get those desire feels turned UP! It’s so fun when you give yourself permission to want!
