S2: E022 Fear

Fear prevents us from opening certain doors, driving certain roads and climbing certain mountains. What are you really afraid of? The unknown, failure, or the opinion of others. Not facing your fears leads to a life of mediocrity, unfulfilled dreams and lack of growth. The only way to overcome your fear (F) is when the pain of not moving forward (P) plus the desire for something more, your why (Y) is greater. Then you will succeed (S). When P + Y > F = S. God gave you Heart, Soul, Spirit,...


S2: E021 Legacy

What are you giving your children? What Legacy are you leaving for them? The best thing you can do for them is to become the best person that you can be. To actually become the men and women who you are encouraging them to be. Show them that life is about being happy and that they should follow their dreams. That success is not money, a fancy title or power. Show your children that success is doing what you want to do; when, where, and how you want to do it - on your terms. The best way to...

S2: E019 Patience

To achieve any goal, you have to become the person who can and will achieve that goal and you need patience to become that person.

S2: E018 2019 Professional Goals

Professional goal setting is a little more involved because it requires Self-awareness. Before you can Do, you have to Be. Do you actually have a profession or is it just a job? Are you capitalizing on who you are; your DNA, or are you just trying to fit a square peg into a round hole? Assuming that you are doing whatever it is that moves you, then here are some tips. https://anchor.fm


S2: E017 2019 Financial Goals

2019 Financial Goals: 1. STOP SPENDING- you cannot move forward financially if you are constantly buying bullshit. 2. PAY OFF DEBT- credit card debt can paralyze you for years. 3. DOWNSIZE- the more stuff you have or more expensive, bigger stuff you have, the harder and longer you are going to struggle financially. 4. INVEST- once you have stopped the bleeding, paid off debt and made life simpler for yourself, start buying dividend producing stocks when they go on sale. https://anchor.fm


S2: E016 2019 Personal Goals

Goal setting is so much more than just making a list. Goal setting is results oriented but the process is more valuable than the outcome. It’s one thing to achieve a particular goal, but you have to become the person who can and will achieve that goal. Please don’t rush your goal setting process. Take your time, think it through and incorporate self-awareness. Do this right and you will set yourself up for a successful year. https://anchor.fm

You have to want the desired outcome more than...


S2: E014 Trim the Fat

We have to trim the emotional fat in our lives. Get rid of your loser friends and tune out the noise. We all have one or two friends who are such emotional wrecks that they not only waste our time and wear us out; they just suck the life out of us with their drama. For those family members or housemates who we can’t just blow off; distance yourself as much as you can, share less of your future plans and tune them out. When you are moving toward your goals and dreams, make like a butcher and...


S2: E013 Self-Awareness

Before you can set goals for yourself, you have to know who you are. Self-awareness is ground zero. If you embark on any path without knowing who you are, you run the risk of just spinning your wheels. Before you waste any more time, before you start on a path of unfulfilling mediocrity, become self-aware. Take the time now to discover who you are, what you like to do and where you want to do it. Assess your strengths and ask yourself what do you have a passion for, what are you good at?...
