How to Set Goals You Will Actually Achieve.

 

Note: This video was originally posted on the new year in 2019, but the text has been altered for 2020.  


I LOVE the New Year. Rationally, I know that it’s just another day, but in my heart, it helps me to stop to reflect on my life and give hope to my dreams. As with most New Years, I’ve taken time off, basked in some good vacation and family time, and now I’m ready to get to WORK.

2020is going to be huge for me and for Positive Performance. I’m sitting in a coffee shop right now absolutely freaking PUMPED about this year (and it’s not just the coffee:)

Others aren’t necessarily scared of the camera but they self-sabotage in other ways; by getting into a perfectionism mindset, for example. They want everything about the video to be JUST RIGHT. Maybe they are waiting for the stars to align or for divine inspiration to strike.
 
Either way, they are stalling. Some of them have posted their videos, many have excuses why they haven’t. As you might imagine, most of the excuses aren’t absolute barriers but are rather rooted in fear or in perfectionism. Keep in...
