In this episode, Jill Thiry explains to Mighty Pete about her eight steps to realizing her goals, and the process she uses with her coaching clients to get them to realize theirs. Considering Thiry’s passion for her work, you may think her methods would be strict, but one of the cornerstones of her philosophy is kindness and love, with the reasoning that more will grow out of a sense of nourishment. In her coaching practice she uses a combination of visualization, mantra, intention setting and a scientific methodology to ignite a gradual, transformative change in people’s lives. 


  • Start big and then narrow down. Have a brainstorming session with yourself and uncover some of your big dreams, then slowly pick out a sentence or a word that pertains to that goal. Then decide on a step you can take to move towards that goal. 
  • If things stop being fun, stop doing them. Let your curiosity guide your growth. 
  • The more you experiment with goal setting, the louder your ‘heart voice’ will become, and the easier it will become the person you’re spiritually supposed to be. 
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help and show vulnerability. Being vulnerable is a big part of the journey. 


“If I promise to myself and to you, that I’m going to commit to doing this one thing for the next week or the next month or the next year…but if I speak it, it kind of works to get it out of the spin.”

“I’m going to say that there is nothing more (important) than your own health and wellness, because it shows love for yourself. I do believe that it is difficult for you to love other things and other people, and be a great mentor and example, if you don’t love yourself. … Your health and wellness, which for me is wholeness…you do share that love with others.” 

(Allowing herself to follow her ‘yeses’) “Why am I doing this? What do I get out of it? What do I enjoy out of it, what do I not enjoy?” 

“One of my gifts I think is making it simple and easy enough that people can practice it without judging themselves, without getting an ego.”


Jill Thiry is a nomad, both in terms of her career and in her life. After getting her BA at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, she followed her passion for teaching and fitness to the local YWCA, where she became the fitness director. After that, she moved to Europe and spent two years teaching skiing and kayaking, and then backpacked through Southeast Asia before heading back to the United States. She got an MBA from the University of San Francisco, and worked in the publicity industry until 2001, when 9/11 was the catalyzing force behind a divorce and a career change. She began to split her time between Mexico and Southern California, working at a spa called Rancho de la Puerta in one and running a coaching business in the other. She has developed a mentoring process which she employs with her clients to this day. She still splits her time between Mexico and San Diego.
