We’re a week into 2016, do you have your goals set? More importantly, are your goals set up in a way that you can achieve them? Since it’s proven that?97% of the population fails to set goals, I created a?refresher for you with?a 5 Part Drive-By Coaching video series?about goal setting, more specifically on why we fail to set goals. (Drive-By Coaching videos are available exclusively on Facebook, so make sure to join me there to watch the latest videos).
I’m really motivated to get goal setting content out because I know most people who set?resolutions are already breaking them. Ivy league studies demonstrate that all high achieving individuals share in common the ability to set goals, so why do so many of us avoid?setting goals? Well, I explain why in each video, and also give solutions on how to overcome goal setting challenges. The great thing about these videos is that most of them are only 2-3 minutes long. You get the knowledge you need in the time it takes you to brush your teeth.
PART 1-We fail to set goals because we have a fear of failure. I talk about getting over the ego and why this is necessary for successful goal setting.
PART 2– We fail to set goals because we want to avoid negative peer pressure. We don’t want to hear our friends and family tell us that we will never achieve those goals. This is letting other people’s ego get in the way. ?I talk about the importance of only sharing goals with people who?support you.
PART 3– We fail?to set goals because we don’t realize the importance of goals.?I talk about the law of recognition and how understanding?this helps us with accountability, visualization and ultimately goal setting.
Part 4– We fail to set goals because we don’t know how. This one is simple, I go into my S.M.A.A.R.T Goal method and how this will empower you to set and achieve goals.
Part 5-?We fail to set goals because DOING SO commits us to PAIN! ?I talk about the two types of pain we could encounter if setting goals and why they should NOT get in our way!
During the month of December, I start thinking a lot about my relationship with God. ?I mean, I?m a Jewish guy who married a Filipino Catholic and, along with her and all 3 of our kids, celebrate both Hanukkah and Christmas. Celebrating both Holidays allows us to teach our kids important lessons from each religion, at the same time, the kids learn how to develop their own relationship with God.
I figured that the Holidays are the perfect time for me to share this award winning speech with you again, and since I?m constantly pushing the importance of public speaking, I better make sure I?m demonstrating my own ability to speak! I was lucky to have one of the audience members film it so I can now share.
As you watch my speech, keep in mind, this is intended to be a humorous speech. It?s not supposed to offend anyone. I do think you will find the 3 stories I share amusing. You can watch my speech here, and perhaps it will spark you to start thinking more closely about your own relationship with God:
I personally have come to the conclusion that everyone has their own relationship with God. Even if you don?t believe in God, or don?t feel like you have a relationship with God; that in itself IS a relationship with God.
Ultimately, I want to say, don?t let anyone mess with your relationship with God, and don?t mess with anyone else?s relationship with God. ?However you do it, have a happy and safe Holiday Season!
My marketing team has been telling me to shoot more video. My first thought was “When do I have time to do that?” And then my idea of Drive-By Coaching was born. It’s a ?fun concept I came up with to take advantage of my time spent in traffic. When I am driving after?I finish?a session, the content of the session is still top of mind…so I thought, why not lay down some?video while the ideas are still fresh?!
So, “Drive-By Coaching” is raw (unscripted and unedited) footage that I take during my drive with ideas, tips or strategies that I hope can help your life or business. I know you’re wondering “Is this safe Jeff?” Don’t worry?it is every bit as safe as if you were sitting shot-gun in the car with me and we were having a normal conversation. ?Except, its Coaching!
Drive-By Coaching videos will be posted exclusively on Facebook at least a couple times a month?and sometimes as often as?a couple times a DAY. ?Make sure to join the?Klu Yard Facebook to catch my latest video. Below are a couple links to videos I’ve already created. Click the image to see the video on Facebook.
