Learn about the benefits of strategic goal setting from Clinical and Coaching Psychologist Dr Suzy Green to reach your goals and experience better wellbeing. In this intriguing episode, Suzy and Meg discuss essential strategies to reach your goals and how to enjoy the journey of goal-setting for a more fulfilling life.

So what’s this episode really about?

  • The side effects of negativity and how it can impede your ability to achieve your goals.
  • The powerful impact of self-compassion and self-care during the goal-setting journey.
  • Potent strategies to help you identify, pursue and achieve goals.

Why you should listen

While it’s great to have goals, many people struggle to achieve them without a clear action plan. This struggle can lead to feeling down, lack of purpose and no motivation. You’ll hear Meg and Suzy both share actionable steps towards achieving goals and how you can work towards a positive mindset to achieve your goals. You’ll also learn about what a personal coach can do for you to help as Dr Suzy shares examples of some of her work with clients. So what goal will you work toward next in your life? Listen in to find out!

Helpful Strategies

  • Catch negative thoughts as they are happening, then reframe them to move forward.
  • Find one thing you can do each day, or each week, to work towards your goal.
  • Ask yourself how things are going, what’s working well, what could be better.

You can quote us on that…

“Think about what wellbeing means to you. What’s the smallest thing that I can do that’s going to make the biggest difference?”

Dr Suzy Green

“It’s the goal-striving that leads to wellbeing, not the goal attainment. To work for things, not just get things, there’ll be greater levels of gratitude with that.”

Dr Suzy Green

 “That capacity to self-regulate is a skill that can be learnt.”
