This week’s episode features a conversation with Deb Rubin, Certified Life and Success Coach at Deb Rubin Coaching. Oftentimes successful people base their success on the standards of others while disregarding their own personal happiness and values. Deb teaches her clients how to recognize their limiting beliefs and introduces S.M.A.R.T. goals which stand for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time and how this can bring real joy into lives that have become lost in life’s treadmill.

  • 15:36 S.M.A.R.T. goals: A strategy to achieve what you truly want

05:39 “Our minds are brilliant, brilliant creations but they’re also the source of a lot of struggle and personal pain.”

09:02 “The mind does things like that to us. So a limiting belief, for example, is one way our minds actually hold us back from achieving what we want most in life.”

14:55 “They’re chasing this goal that doesn’t really align with who they are and what matters to them. And once they bring that into alignment, they take the time to bring it into alignment, life becomes fun again.”

15:57 “S.M.A.R.T. Goals is a process to allow you to achieve your goal. Any goal that you have that you can’t utilize the S.M.A.R.T. process for is a goal that most likely you won’t achieve.”

21:20 “When you put something on your list, you want to determine how important it is. Is it a real goal? Can you create a S.M.A.R.T. element around it? Are you passionate about it? Will it make a difference in your life?”
