Setting Goals Intuitively With Helen Leathers 

Last year I had a massive revelation. I thought that I had set goals throughout my life and achieved them.

I was wrong. Not entirely, but mostly I was wrong.

There were many goals that I had sat down and worked out, then broken down into little actions and worked towards. Some of those I had achieved, some of those I hadn’t, for a number of reasons.

Why hadn’t I achieved them?

  • Maybe I had run out of steam
  • Maybe it had seemed too hard
  • Maybe I didn’t have enough motivation
  • Maybe I was not being held accountable by someone
  • Maybe I didn’t believe I could achieve
  • or Maybe, I just didn’t care enough.

I wouldn’t go as far as to say Goal setting doesn’t work, there are plenty of goals I have achieved.

But I would say that those I found easy, that magically just happened weren’t really goals as such.

They were more inspired intentions, and heart-felt visions for my future. One day I suddenly got a feeling that I should start a business, write a book, find a course…. etc. and you know what, I did, easily, and with help that just suddenly appeared. The coincidences that happen in my life are just brilliant.

What’s the difference?

Goals appear to me to be external and come from the head. We plan them in reaction to something else, to feeling less than, to not having enough.

Inspired Intentions are more of a feeling that guide us to the end result. They are internal and give us a feeling of heart-felt satisfaction and joy.

I think this is one of many ways women work differently to men.

I work better with inspired intentions than with hard and fast goals with deadlines.

How do you make this work in the real world?

Well I believe that by being in connection with my true self, and actively developing my intuition and my spiritual side, I can be truly on purpose and able to connect with my heart visions.

I feel what my future holds and that helps me to achieve the things that I can see or feel in my mind’s eye. Some people may say this is semantics, that I am talking about goal setting by a different name. But to me it feels different. To me it feels more congruent and purposeful.

This is one of the ways that I am different to other business and life coaches. I work intuitively and challenge the normal way of doing things. It’s more gentle, and it’s often more profound and easier, especially for women.

If you fancy more inspired guidance in your life, something that makes you think a little more, connect a little more (even if you don’t know what you are connecting with) and be a little more, you can download my free app here: and start, or continue, on your journey, to achieve your heart visions, and the life you believe is waiting for you.
