Did you know research shows that a person who sets (and achieves) goals tends to have higher motivation, higher self-esteem and a greater sense of self-confidence and autonomy?
Setting an achievable goal also gives a boost to your systolic blood pressure (SBP).
However, it wouldn’t surprise me if, as a highly sensitive, your experience with goal setting has been quite different.
Here’s why: setting goals rooted in comparison or based on what you think you “should be” doing actually lowers your blood pressure. Which slows you down, and has you feel like you’re trudging through mud – with no motivation to actually take the actions needed to accomplish the goal.
In this podcast episode, I’m sharing how to use your highly sensitive strength of intuition to consistently set – and reach – doable goals that will give you an ongoing boost to your systolic blood pressure and keep you motivated and ready to take action.
