HONEST QUESTION: How often do you set goals and then get discouraged and never reach them?

No shame! This was me for yearssssss. Goal setting is a SKILL, an actual field of study, and is trickier than we were EVER taught to believe. There are actually ways and approaches that work, and some that just suck (which is what most people teach). This video is gonna break it down.

I’m gonna walk you through the differences between your vision, outcome goals, objective goals, performance goals, process goals (and even a bit on SMART goals/SMARTER goals) along with examples of each…

Then I’m gonna show you which ones YOU should be focusing on, Process Goals vs Outcome Goals.
