Are you living out of the longing of your soul? – Jo-ann Ferreira
Life coaching is all about goal setting and achieving. It’s forward thinking. Ultimately, it leads you to a happier and more fulfilled life.
Setting goals with soul means digging deeper into the reasons behind your goals, the feelings you are after that you think the goal will bring.
Lately, I’ve been thinking, “Why not just go straight for the feeling? Do I have to achieve something to feel a certain way? Or can I just feel a certain way? Somehow? Magically?
So I dug deeper to discover a new kind of goal, Soul Goals.
3 Powerful Examples of Soul Goals
As a spiritual seeker, that whole idea just made me light up.
Here’s what I mean.
Let’s start with a quick explanation of goals with soul, the kind I’ve been setting and teaching my clients to set for years.
- Goals with soul are goals that have meaning and purpose. You want to feel a deep connection to your Core Values. You want to make sure they are connected to your Life’s Purpose.
- You also want to feel your goals come from love and not fear.
- Finally, goals with soul set your ego aside as much as possible and instead connect more deeply with what life wants from you. You know, looking for the signs, getting quiet enough to hear guidance, moving in a direction you might not have planned because it just feels so right.
Great, right? Those are goals with soul. Love them.
Let’s take this a step further.
All these goals are aimed at helping you feel something.
Let’s look at three of the most common feelings most people’s goals are chasing.
Freedom; Fearlessness; Fulfillment (learn more)
Freedom isn’t just a goal; it’s a powerful feeling and a strong powerful longing of your soul. Freedom for the soul means the practise of letting go and allowing life to unfold. We all struggle with our attachments to how life “should” be. We think that to be happy we must have life unfold a certain way.
The Soul Goal of freedom lets all that go. We learn to understand there are forces that we have no control over. Creation unfolds, and we don’t have anything to do with it. Freedom is the feeling of not being attached to any of it. And to let go of trying to control!
Can you imagine? I mean, you still have to deal with life, but you are neither clinging to things being a certain way or resisting them. They just are and we deal with it. Those things don’t have to shake our equilibrium. That is freedom.
Can you imagine being fearless? I don’t mean reckless. I mean not encumbered with all the concerns, worries, and troubles of life.
Again, as a Soul Goal it means trusting that the invisible power that creates, sustains and maintains creation knows what it is doing. This is a deep trust that life is unfolding as it should.
Contrast that with Fear. It is a construct of our ego, our sense of separateness from that invisible force of creation. Our soul longs to simply fall back into the arms of creation, trusting all is well.

Fulfillment is the idea that drives me most. I think I first understood the material meaning to be about the full expression of my talents.
But now, I see it as Self-realization. It is the Soul Goal of letting go of my focus on “personhood” and remembering who I really am, my “Selfhood.”
The realization of my True Self, that is the Soul Goal of fulfillment. Remembering who I really am.
Kind of blows my mind as they said in the sixties. 💥
I am planning to do something super radical this year.
I am going to set these three Soul Goals as my primary focus for 2023.
Yes, I will likely need some business goals to help me focus. But my primary focus is going to be working on my Soul Goals.
That means more meditation, more silence, more thoughtful reflection and study. It will mean releasing emotional hurts and attachments, keeping my heart open. It will mean listening more to my inner guidance and trying to let my ego’s voice drift on by like the clouds in the sky.
Surrender will be my word of the year.
I’m excited. Because I know in my heart, Freedom, Fearlessness, and Fulfillment is what I have always been after. Now I’m going for it directly.
