Goal setting is not just for New Year’s day! Stop waiting for some special day to set goals and do it now. Start by treating yourself to an early holiday gift. A gift of success. This is a real life how-to succeed-in-2014 like no other year seminar! Don’t get that temporary rush of the new year resolution setting thing. Instead learn the mental game of persistence, motivation, and goal setting.
Here’s a bonus for every attendee. Every attendee gets a free 30-minute one-on-one coaching session in February 2014. Why? Did you know that according to resolutions research almost half of all people set new year’s resolutions; and that by February about one-third have ceased the pursuit; and more than half of them have stopped by June? Only 8% actually are successful in their resolution. So what about those who don’t set resolutions? Survey’s show that resolution setters are 10 times more likely to achieve their goal than those who do not set goals! That means that only .08% (less than 1%) non-explicit (not written and specifically articulated) goal setters achieve their goals.
Goals are critical to moving forward and giving purpose in your life. Goals…
- Give you direction.
- Improve the quality, purpose and focus of daily life.
- Help maintain your motivation.
- Help enhance self-confidence.
- Help you monitor your progress.
- Create explicit route to take on your journey.
- Direct your attention to what’s important.
- Help you work on strengths and weaknesses.
- Are flexible and accommodate “life”.
Goal setting itself is not new. Various motivational speakers and organizations put spins on the same theme. But research has offered insights into best practices and most the effective techniques. One of the techniques I created is unique in setting up my clients for success. We set Gold, Silver, Bronze and Honorable Mention goals. I view goal setting not as an all-or-nothing venture – contrary to conventional goal setting. This is just one approach I share along with many other proven applied sports psychology techniques in this four-part seminar.
Some people imagine some fuzzy wish like “I want to get in shape” or “I want to run a marathon” or “I want to lose weight” or “I will try to make the Varsity squad” and “I will try to make time to workout more”. It’s a nice way to stay non-committal. It’s a great way to let excuses sabotage you. Vague, general and “effort” based goals have been shown to be far less effective. You will learn how to create goals and the process goals that paved the way in this four-part seminar!
But only a part of the problem is in setting actual goals. The primary problem is that people spend more time talking about goals than laying a foundation to achieve them. They never learn how to take the next step – the actual daily pursuit of those goals! Lay that foundation in this four-part seminar.
Motivation often wanes after the first days or weeks of the year. Life happens. Stress of work, family, finances become real. This does not mean you have to give up on your goals. Learn not only how to set realistic, achievable multi-level goals but how to maintain your motivation and focus to stay on track throughout the year in this four-part seminar! Be part of that 8% who achieve their goals!

The number one reason people fail at goals is pretty simple. They leave their goal achievement process in on the piece of paper. You have to ACT on it! Ask yourself right now – what one thing did I do to get closer to my goal? If you can’t answer that question, then sign up for this seminar and get started!
