046 – Your Best Year Yet (Part 1 – Looking Back)
Did you know that only 8% of people achieve their personal goals each year? These were the findings of a recent study by the University of Scranton. And Michael Scott may or may not have been one of the 8%. (Ok… I couldn’t help myself. I mean, you can’t NOT throw a little Dunder Mifflin humor into any mention of Scranton, PA.) But seriously… Why do 92% of people fail with their goals in life? Well, I haven’t conducted a scientific study on it. But after having taught 11 years in the classroom and having coached and trained hundreds of teacherpreneurs on how to set and achieve their goals… …I’ve observed some very real patterns for what makes both kids and adults fail. But more importantly… …What makes goal achievement not only possible, but INEVITABLE. So I’ve gotta ask. What are your hopes and dreams for 2019? What do you really wish you could accomplish? Do you wanna lose some weight? Start a new exercise routine? Spend more time with your family? Take a big vacation? Buy a new house? Make more money? You might be thinking that your dreams are impossible. Or that they’re too hard. Or that other people can do it, but for some reason you can’t. Well… If you wanna be in the 8%, you’ve gotta rewire those limiting beliefs. And you CAN. I’ve not only seen it happen for many of my friends, colleagues, students and clients… …But I’ve also done it myself. The biggest reason why most people don’t accomplish their goals is because they set themselves up for failure before they even get started. And they don’t even realize they’re shooting themselves in the foot. Wouldn’t it be great if you could skip over all the self-sabotage and follow a few proven (and simple) steps for achieving your biggest, boldest goals? In this episode, you’ll learn: Why results-driven goals and action plans can help you achieve everything you want in 2019, but resolutions will leave you empty-handed. The 3 things that hold most people back from achieving their goals (so you can avoid these pitfalls). The most important first step toward reaching a new goal in your life (that most people miss!). >> Click Here to download your printable podcast companion workbooks: Download your free workbooks here (for a limited time).
