"Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal.” ~Earl Nightingale
Today's episode brings back legendary former co-host Henry J. Evans—a dynamic marketing expert, best-selling author, speaker, and consultant—for an important introduction to goal-setting.
Habits2Goals exists to help listeners learn to set and achieve goals, supported by habits, and live life to their full potential. But it's important to take it back to the beginning for a refresher on just HOW to set goals in the first place—and why it's so critical.
Goals can be as broad as your overall life purpose or as minute as what you're doing right now, today, and setting goals requires an understanding of your own values.
The first step, as MG calls it, is "beginning with the end in mind." Project yourself 5, 10, 20 years down the road. Who is that person? What habits do they have? Are you proud to be this person? What do you want to be like and how do you want to be? Then you can go about building that person from the ground up.
Next comes finding your WHY—tapping into that burning desire for your goal's fulfillment. When you tie your goal to your biggest desire—your why—you can find the strength to power through when the inevitable obstacles occur. Without enough desire or a big enough why, any excuse is enough to quit.
Listen in to hear the rest of the Goal-Setting 101 steps and learn why SMART goals aren't' smart, how to become the best version yourself that you can imagine, how to stay motivated, and how habits and tracking are game-changers when you're creating your own vision of yourself.
Enjoy the episode!
