I don’t know how to say this…but if you're goal setting…

I may as well just come right out and say it.

(WARNING: big boy and girl language used – if that offends you, stop reading now.)

Goal Setting

I HATE this time of year.

For ONE reason.

And that is…I HATE watching entrepreneurs roll over another year without accomplishing anything they promised themselves during LAST YEAR'S goal setting routine.

I know “hate” is a strong word…I truly feel helpless when I see people struggling…

Yet they’re unwilling to really do something about it.

Listen, nobody is saying goal setting and changing things for the better is easy…

But I gotta tell you – I can’t help being pissed off when I’m around a group of people declaring how they’re going to “change their life” starting in the New Year!

First of all – you know as well as I do, most of ‘em are full of shit (and liquored up, so they will say anything)

Secondly, the statistics are against you and me.

Check this out:

goal setting stats


WOW – only 8% of people are successful in achieving their resolutions.

Just LOOK at the other percentages!

Remember that “top 10%” thingy everyone talks about?

The “successful” 10% of people in the world?

Well, this just shows you another perspective of why most people are NOT in that 10%.

And it’s as simple as following through on our New Year’s resolutions and goal setting promises.

I’ll take it a step further.

It’s NOT just about New Years.

It’s about the promises we make to ourselves EVERY DAY, and BREAK every day.

I’ve seen it.

I’ve done it.

The “I have a ton of other things I need to get to first” excuse.

We have the same problems.

“I’m feeling overwhelmed.”

“I need another me when it’s busy.”

“I feel like I’m flailing all over the place and will never stop working IN the business.”

I could go on and on, but you get the picture.

It’s why I HATE this time of year – and the whole traditional goal setting process.

If it wasn’t for my family, the joy of freedom and being around such positive people in my life, I’d probably lock myself away until after the New Year fiasco is over.

Because I know more entrepreneurs just like you and me, are waiting for the “New Year” date to try and overcome all of it.

My advice?

Fuck it – start NOW.

Really, WHAT’S going to different in 3 weeks that will make you change your life that isn’t already within your decisive control TODAY?

Change your personal statistics.

Heck, do you want to take it a step further?

Join me in January for my Business Breakthrough Mastermind.

And I’ll make SURE you’re changing your stats.

I hope 2017 is a rockin’ year for you.

If you’ve read this far, I apologize – I know it’s been sort of a downer email…but I HAD to say it.

And I applaud you.

Because most people would not read all of this.

It tells me that you’re willing to listenwilling to stop the excuses and do something now.

It’s ALWAYS your choice.

Whether you do it today or keep waiting for another day.

Peace and love for the Christmas Season of 2016!
