[AMY SAYS] EP#424 – 7 Reasons Goals Fail + How to Make Sure Yours Don’t

Jan 2, 2022

At the start of every year, it’s likely you get pumped up and excited to make some serious change. You decide on a handful of things that you are GOING to conquer this year, god-damn-it! But what actually makes those goals a reality?

Throughout my decade-plus in this work, I have found that noble intentions have very little to do with bringing goals to fruition. Good ol’ fashioned gumption and desire are not enough to make your dreams come true. [sad trombone] In fact, a recent Inc.com article indicated that only 8% of people actually accomplish their goals. WHOA!! 8%!? Well, fuck.

But, wait.

Never fear, Babycakes, because this episode targets seven ways people tend to sabotage their own goals (without even realizing it) and how you can set yourself up to slaaaaay all your goals. It’s not rocket science, but if you employ some of these easy tactics, you will kill all your 2022 goals! Yes, please!

This pod explores:

  • My favorite tool to use to ensure you are tackling this goal for YOU (instead of mom/fam/boss/society)
  • The number one way people lose steam while working towards a goal and how you can smoothly move beyond this obstacle like a BOSS
  • Why you need accountability and people in your life to support you and what to do if you don’t
  • How to keep your self-talk on point so you are constantly encouraged, kicking ass, and taking names
