Today’s ‘Live Better With Willie Jolley’ Tip: Turbo Charge Your Goals (Pt. 2)

Today’s ‘Live Better’ tip for Success is focused on helping you over come this challenging economy. It is taken from my new book, Turn Setbacks Into Greenbacks. Get a copy today…you’ll be glad you did!

We have been talking about the power of creating empowering goals. I have a process that I use in my coaching programs that have been very successful in helping people turbo charge their goals. First, I ask the participants to write down their ‘‘Giving Goals.’’ What would they like to give? What impact would they like to have on the lives of others? Next, I ask them to write their ‘‘Getting Goals.’’ What do you need to get—in order to give? I help them understand that in order to ‘‘give,’’ they must ‘‘get’’ because you cannot give what you do not have!

The next category is the ‘‘Doing Goals.’’ What must you ‘‘Do’’ in order for you to ‘‘Get’’ so that you can ‘‘Give?’’ What steps must you take and what plans must you make? What must you do and what things must you stop doing to achieve your goals? Stay tuned we have more on this subject that will help you turbo charge your goals.

Apr. 23, 1954: Hank Aaron hit his first home run off pitcher Vic Raschi of the St. Loius Cardinals on this date, his first year in the big leagues. It signaled the beginning of what would become Aaron’s duel with a legend. Aaron finished his 19th season with 673 home runs and stands just 41 short of the record set by the home run king, Babe Ruth. (Source: www.BlackFacts.com)
