Episode 324: Stop Limiting Your Potential With Realistic Goals

We all know the importance of setting goals. We have to know where we’re headed and what we want to achieve in order to get there, right? 

The problem is that most people don’t know the best strategy for setting their goals. It seems obvious that our goals should be realistic, right? Wrong. It may seem counterintuitive, but, in reality, your goals should be wildly unrealistic. Reach for the stars. 

Another problem is the company we keep. Most of us surround ourselves with relationships and circumstance. But we should be striving to discover and bring specific people with specific qualities into our lives based on where we are at that point in time.
