Before you ask yourself *what* goals you want to achieve as a speaker, ask yourself *who* do you want to *be* as a speaker and then what do you need to do to become that?
Taking on that identity is what will make the goals real to you.
This has been so helpful to me because traditional goal setting has never worked that well.
I’d make a goal, like guesting on 2 podcasts a month or doing 1 speaking engagement a month.
But, I never felt truly motivated to keep pursuing them. I’d give a bit of an effort and then it would fizzle out.
Until I read a book earlier this year about a different way of setting and achieving goals: WHO you want to be comes first. Then, the goals and habits follow.
In this episode, you’ll learn a different way of setting goals:
- First, we go through specific questions to reflect on the speaking and visibility you did this year (Diane shares hers)
- Visualizing the big picture of what you want with a journaling exercise
- Stepping back and thinking about WHO you want to become as a speaker
- Identifying what you’ll need to do to make that happen, using a handy acronym S.E.A.M. we came up with
Get the prompts we go through and the S.E.A.M. acronym in the free PDF guide below.
