Unleashing Your Desires: The Power of Decisive Declaration in Life and Leadership

Hey there, it's your leadership coach Dr. Taryn back with another episode of the Cheers to Your Pivot podcast. I recently walked you through phase 1 of my Cheers to your Pivot framework and shared some valuable insights and tools to help you prioritize your purpose and decisively declare what you want in life and leadership.

So, let's dive into the main takeaways from the episode.

Timestamped Key Takeaways from the Episode:

[00:02:46] I introduced the 7 critical criteria for deciding and declaring what you want. The first step, as I emphasized, is to clarify. This involves doing the work to have a clear and well-defined understanding of your goals and aspirations. Many people struggle with this step, as I experienced during a women's leadership conference where most attendees found it challenging to identify what they wanted.

[00:07:49] Taking ownership of your desires and aspirations is vital. You cannot attribute your goals to external influences. If you realize a certain path is not for you, it is essential to recognize and accept it, regardless of external expectations.

[00:12:37] Confidence is critical when declaring what you want. It's essential to express your goals with strength and conviction, even when faced with self-doubt. Building this confidence takes practice and self-awareness.

[00:14:15] Alignment stresses the importance of aligning your goals with your core values. It's crucial to ensure that what you want resonates with who you are as a person and aligns with what matters most to you.

[00:15:39] Open communication is the fifth criterion. It’s important to openly and honestly communicate your goals with others, including loved ones. This honest communication can strengthen not only your conviction about your goals but also your relationships with those closest to you.

Tune in to the episode to get the last 2 criterias to the critical thinking framework!


Having a clear understanding of what you want, taking ownership, exuding confidence, aligning with your core values, openly communicating, taking deliberate action, and being accountable are the key factors in decisively declaring what you want. Embracing these criteria will help you lead your way and do work that truly matters. It's all about transforming your vision from a mere want into a reality through deliberate and intentional steps.

If you're ready to embrace change, push past limiting beliefs, and become the best version of yourself, join me next week for a recap of how phase 1 of the framework sets you up for success in the upcoming phases.

See you next week! Until next time, Cheers to your Pivot🥂!!
