Dreaming Big & Achieving More: Insights from Kristina's Podcast with Keith Abraham


I've always been passionate about inspiring others to chase their dreams - so too has Keith Abraham, a celebrated expert in goal-setting and personal growth.

In this blog, I want to share insights from our recent podcast conversation, to help you make the coming year one of transformation and achievement.

Keith's Journey: From Humble Beginnings to Global Inspiration

Keith's story is a powerful testament to the power of dreaming big.

He started his journey as a humble noxious weed inspector, an unlikely beginning for someone who would become a global motivational speaker.

His life changed when he learned about goal setting at 24, leading him to dream bigger and achieve things he never thought possible. His journey underscores that it's never too late to start pursuing your dreams.

The Power of Goal Setting: Keith's 9-Step Process

One of the most enlightening parts of our discussion was Keith's 9-step goal-setting process.

This process is unique as it connects your heart (emotions), head (thoughts), and hands (actions).

Here's a brief overview:

  1. Identify Your Emotional Driver: Understand what emotionally motivates you, be it success, happiness, or purpose.
  2. Articulate Your Goal: Be specific about what you want to achieve, detailing it as much as possible.
  3. Pick a Mindset: Choose a mindset, like courage or gratitude, and let it guide your actions.
  4. Set a Date: Clearly define when you want to achieve your goal.
  5. Write Down Reasons: List why this goal is important to you to build commitment.
  6. Establish Milestones: Break your goal into smaller, achievable steps.
  7. 30-Day Plan: Focus on what you can do in the next 30 days towards your goal.
  8. Self-Assessment: Identify what you need to start or stop doing to achieve your goal.
  9. Daily Habits: Develop habits that align with and support your goal.

Overcoming Self-Doubt and Procrastination

Keith emphasized the importance of overcoming barriers like self-doubt and procrastination.

He advised focusing on taking the first step, not on completing the task. This approach reduces the overwhelm and makes the goal seem more attainable.

Remember, the day you take the first step, you've essentially completed half the task.

Harnessing the Energy of Your Dreams

Understanding the emotional drivers behind your goals can significantly enhance your motivation.

Keith's approach involves tapping into these drivers to create a deeper connection with your goals. This connection not only propels you forward but also helps maintain momentum even in the face of challenges.

Creating a Purpose-Driven Life

Our conversation circled back to the idea of living a life that's true to your passions.

Keith’s story is a brilliant example of how aligning your personal and professional life with your passions can lead to a fulfilling and energizing existence.

It's about finding what lights you up and pursuing it relentlessly.
