Author and speaker, Jim Rohn once said,
"Goals: There is no telling what you can do when you get inspired by them. There is no telling what you can do when you believe in them. There is no telling what will happen when you act upon them."
Time and again when I speak with different entrepreneurs, what I find is that they have goals, yet the actions they are taking are not consistent with what they want to achieve.
With this thought in mind, I gave my friend Will Polston a call.
Will is a mindset strategies and coach. We did some work together a year or so ago and I was instantly impressed with his approach to goal setting and dealing with self-sabotaging behaviours.
I mentioned him back in episode 11, when I shared Will's Butt Flip technique.
So what I did was get him on the call and asked him to explain why for many people, goals don't seem work.
As it turns out...
How to Achieve Anything with Will Polston
In today's podcast we cover:
- How to set goals that really work.
- A four-step process to achieving anything in life or business.
- A better way of setting and achieving goals.
- Your Big Why and where most people go wrong.
I should point out that the audio quality suffers a bit on this episode. It seems Will and I were having a love/hate relationship with the Internet signal. I'm sorry it's not great, and I hope you'll stick with it. It's worth it!
Today's Cheat Sheet
I really loved Will's four-step process and everything else he shared. So that you don't have to keep searching on the audio file next time you refer back to it, I've put together a cheat sheet on it.
Make sure you grab these notes and keep them handy next time you're having a "blue thinking" session.
I just want to wrap up by saying thanks both to Will for being on the show and you for taking the time to listen.
I love doing these episodes. It's a chance for me to talk about something I'm interested in and for you to learn something that will help you grow your business. A real win-win situation!
