Goal Setting & Success: Make it Happen!
How many times have you felt daunted or intimidated when you considered something you wanted to make happen in your life? Whether it was a hobby you wanted to turn into a business, a change of career, or some other dream – it may have been easier to play it safe and talk yourself out of it.
Without the tools you need to build a brighter future, you can feel powerless to change anything. But, with the skills to overcome any barrier, you can transform from feeling stuck to being confident and powerful!
This book will help you identify the three major reasons you don’t make things happen in your life. As you consistently improve your ability to work through the roadblocks of “what to do,” “how to do it,” and “wanting to do it,” you will find that you can take on bigger, more complex projects.
You won’t be stuck as often and, when you are, you will create a solution and be on your way quickly. You will continue to move onward to greater achievements. As you do, you will master the ability to clear internal blocks, creating a way over, under, around or through any barriers that remain. Whatever your goals are for yourself , this book will show you how to achieve your dreams and make it happen!
