I still remember the horror, the helplessness, and the hatred I had in my heart. I’d just been fired from the job I hated, but felt that I needed to keep. We’d just moved into a new home, with a new mortgage and our six-month old was asleep upstairs.
My first reaction was panic. I was terrified.
My next emotion was helplessness. I literally had no idea what to do. Sure, I hated my job. In fact, just the night before, my wife Tara essentially told me I needed to find a new job…or else. The stress and chaos was too much for either of us.
Next, I felt hatred. Towards the owner of the company. Towards myself for not leaving sooner on my own terms. Towards…well, “the system” and “the man.” I was just angry.
It’s that time of year again…when everyone is thinking about the year ahead. What’s 2015 looking like for you? Do you have a clear vision for what you want to achieve and do this year?
Today’s guest can help you get clear on your objectives for this year. He’s someone I consider to be a mentor and he’s the man who originally inspired my blog and ultimately my podcast.
Today, Michael Hyatt and I talk about the power and importance of setting goals and how to make 2015 your best year ever.
Some of the questions we cover are:
Let’s be honest…goal setting sounds boring. What’s so important about goal setting?
What’s the difference between goals and New Year’s Resolutions?
If goals are so important, why don’t some people, maybe most people, set goals?
What are some goals of yours that you hit in 2014?
What do people like Tony Robbins, John Maxwell, Dave Ramsey, Chalene Johnson and Andy Andrews do at the beginning of every year? This free PDF from Michael Hyatt will show you:
In this book, more than 30 high achievers who each answered this question:
“What is the most important thing you do at the beginning of each year to set yourself up for your best year ever?”
Do you want 2014 to be your best year ever?
Who wouldn’t? Who actually started out this year saying, “You know, 2009 was as good as it gets. I really can’t beat that.”
No one. We all want this year to be our best ever. And for next year to be better.

Everything is at stake
Michael said something recently that convinced me to give it a try:
Everything is at stake by not seeking transformation now.
And he’s right.
If you waste one day, that might be the day that changes your life. One missed opportunity might set you back a week, a month, or even a year towards achieving your goals. It’s time to do something different. It’s time to invest in your best year ever.
