Journey vs. Destination: goals

Welcome to Love Your Life + Law of Attraction.

Today we’re going to talk about whether you should set goals and make 3-year plans.

If you’re a long-time goal setter and plan maker—like I used to be—you’ll definitely want to listen to this one!

This episode is perfect for anyone who wants to learn…

  • How goals and plans look differently to me these days through the lens of Law of Attraction
  • Why too many of us are setting goals we’re not that excited about and willing to sacrifice how we feel today to some future we think is going to be better
  • Why goals are life-giving things of the Universe and what Louise Hay says dreams and goals do for us
  • How the journey of getting to your goals should feel and three questions you can ask to vet your goals and plans


“The journey has to feel the way you want the destination to feel.” —Danielle Laporte

“If you had one goal, and that was to feel good, you would never again need to hear another word from anyone. You would live successfully and happily and in a way of fulfilling your life’s purpose ever after.” —Abraham

“The reason for desires, goals…is because they are life-giving things of the Universe. Without objects of attention, or objects of desire, Life Force does not come through any of us.” —Abraham

“Dreams and goals keep us young and interested in life.” —Louise Hay

“People say, ‘The joy is in the journey,’ but they rarely understand what they are saying. You are in this focused time/space reality with goals and objectives that call you because as you identify a desire it literally summons life through you. Life summoning through you is what it’s all about, not the completion of anything.” —Abraham

“There is not something you’re supposed to do. There’s not something that you should do. There is only that which you are inspired to do. And how do you get inspired except by the contrast? It’s the life experience that gives you the idea of the desire, and then as you focus upon the desire, the Energy flows.” —Abraham

“You think that the goal is to be over there, and we say the goal is the journey over there; the goal is the fun you have along the way on your way to over there.” —Abraham

“You’re never going to get to any final place. And so, we want to remind you to relax and start having fun on the way.” —Abraham

“We would like your goals to be, rather than the thing or that experience or that lover or that whatever, we would like your new goal to be, ‘I would like my mood to be eager. I would like my mood to be optimistic. I would like my mood to be anticipating wonderful things.’” —Abraham

“Whether it’s a trophy, money, relationships, or things, the achievement of anything that you desire must be considered success. But if you will let your standard of success be your achievement of joy, everything else will then fall easily into place. For in the finding of joy, you are finding vibrational alignment with the resources of the Universe.” —Law of Attraction Cards

“Let go of goal orientation and focus on joy orientation.” —Abraham
