Special Edition: The Real Reason You’re Afraid to Set Goals for 2017 [Podcast]

(And How to Beat It)

Welcome to this special edition of the This Is Your Life podcast. In this episode, Megan Hyatt Miller (my oldest daughter and Chief Operating Officer of Michael Hyatt & Company) and I discuss the real reason you’re afraid to set goals in 2017.

We all know what it’s like to hesitate because we’re afraid of disappointment. But all of your greatest achievements and accomplishments are waiting for you on the other side of that hesitation. At some point, you have to move past it and jump in order to succeed. In today’s podcast, we’ll discuss four negative emotions that stop you from pursuing your goals and show you how to overcome them.

  • How to view your fears from a different perspective and push through them.

  • Tips on how you can consistently overcome doubt and shame and find the success you desire.
