Elevate Your Potential Magazine
(By: Samy Felice) Eventually, after nearly half a decade, I realized that goals aren’t about belonging, or reaching a safe place. They’re not there so that I can prove myself to anyone. They’re just there to help me move forward, to grow, and become a better person, however simplistic that may sound.
For four years, I struggled using SMART Goals that got me nowhere. I experienced psychological pressure and pain from always feeling like I would never be enough until I reached some magically self-created utopia through achieving my goals.
I remember desperately working to be fit for a fitness test; training so hard that I ended up giving myself a chronic heel injury that I still have to this day. In reaching for my goals like they’d somehow make me complete, I pushed myself past my limit. With every goal I had, this theme would repeat itself.
Compass Goals Changed Everything For Me
Over the course of 2016, I managed to achieve several different goals. They include reading over seventy books, improving my income, traveling to various countries, and reaching something that’s a lot closer to my dream body.
But more importantly, I achieved my goals in a far more grounded way. Compared to previous years, I felt more excited throughout my journey. I didn’t feel like I was grasping and yearning helplessly, with flailing arms, for my goals. The beautiful side effect of that was that I was less wrapped up in my own bubble.

(By: Jule Fuller) This weeks video focuses on how your brain can prevent you from setting and achieving big goals. 95-99% of what you think and do is unconscious. Your brain is set up to operate automatically from what is contained in your long-term memory.
Whilst this is helpful with our basic ability to function it becomes problematic when you want to do something that is direct conflict from what is stored in your long-term memory. This is why you can often keep yourself small because going up against the unconscious beliefs you may have formed about yourself and your abilities prevents often prevents you from going outside our conditioning.
Setting Goals That Reflect Your True Potential
In this video I share my story of what happened when I set a big goal that was in opposition to a deep seated belief in my long term memory and what I did to get things back on track. The overall purpose of this video is to encourage you to set big goals that reflect your true potential. I believe each of us holds a piece of the puzzle and in order for the whole to be realised we need to stop playing small and become the truth of who we really are.
