Episode Info: What If... Imagine the unthinkable has happened... you've come home from a business trip to find that your family has been kidnapped. There was a ransom note left on the dinning room table that demanded you come up with one million dollars in 3 months if you ever wanted to see your family again. The shock leaves you slumped on the coach in a cold sweat. The room is spinning and you feel yourself hyperventilating.  After a few minutes you start taking some deep breaths to calm yourself and you immediately find ideas coming to mind of how you can make the money. It's amazing how creative you are now that your family's future is on the line.  Simultaneously you're playing back a meeting you had with your coach 2 weeks ago where you were coming up with every reason under the sun why you couldn't make a hundred thousand dollars that year.  My friends, this story illustrates the massive power behind having a compelling why. Without a compelling why you will submit to excuses. But, with an undeniable why you will find a way to overcome any challenge or mindset! The Truth About Goals The reality is that if setting and crushing goals was easy, everyone would be doing it.  But going after big, hairy, audacious goals requires us to tackle our fears, to face off against our limiting mindsets, and to play a bigger game than we have ever played before. The road is full of challenges, failure and setbacks. Without a stirring why, you'll never go the distance. New Years Resolutions This is why so many New Years resolutions simply fade after just 3 days to 3 weeks. They resolutions were simply 'nice to's' and 'should do's'. And those are hardly going to inspire you to keep going during the bumpy ride of goal fulfilment. When I question many of my clients around the why of their financial goals, many don't have a compelling why. It is simply a vanity metric, a 'nice to' or 'should do'. No wonder so many of us don't crush the goals we set! My Challenge to You So my challenge to you is a simple one... do your goals have a compelling why? If not, get it!
