The answer is – yes absolutely! But also…I’m sorry…we can’t forget our goals completely. When used in an effective and not suffocating way, goals can be invaluable to forward progress. So how do we get over the feeling that “goals” are always lurking behind us…making us guilty and anxious? Follow these steps to get aligned and stop being shadowed by your goals.
Once you start to control your mind and thoughts and focus on the present mindfulness will come naturally! You can change your whole life through mindfulness but you don’t have to uproot your whole life to get there.
