Goal Setting Your Way Out of Depression With Aren Bahia
It’s easy for us to fall into a depressive spiral when the weight of the world seems to be on our shoulders.
Not feeling good → not doing anything because we aren’t motivated → not feeling good because we aren’t doing anything good → not feeling good
If you’re thinking to yourself: “There has to be a way to get out of that spiral.”
You’re absolutely right.
What you need to do is pick something and then map and plan that out.
In his Masterclass: Goal Setting Your Way Out of Depression, Aren shared his methods of goal setting his way out of depression.
Pillar One – Start with the end – What do you want to do?
Yeah, just answer that to yourself. What’s the end game?
Example: I want to have a business in Bali.
Pillar Two – Plan in Reverse – Set the structure for success
Whatever you want to do, reverse engineer it. Go from the end game, to where you are now.
Example: Business in Bali → Building the business → Getting Connections → Actually moving to Bali → and all that.
Pillar Three – Markers of Achievement
Celebrate the little wins as you would the big wins!
The only way you’d be able to do that is by making markers of achievement all throughout your journey.
Pillar Four – Where Do You Need to be?
If you surround yourself with negative people in a bad environment, you’ll go nowhere.
Find the places and all the people that support your growth, and surround yourself with them.
Pillar Five – What Do I Need to Know? – Get smart
Let’s get smart. Learn new skills, develop yourself, achieve new things.
This is the way to shift your life and get out of depression.
Pillar Six – The First Step – Start Strong
Once everything is prepared, now is the time to take the first step. You don’t have to start massive, you just have to start strong.
