We are all goal setters. But setting goals is easy. Making the sacrifices and doing the work necessary to achieve them is hard. Without the right mindset, you’re going nowhere. But how can you keep your goals centered in your priorities when it seems so difficult, unclear, or overwhelming? My guest on this episode has dedicated his life to helping people answer those questions.
Dr. Jeff Spencer, often called part doctor, part guru, part medicine man, made a promise to himself when he was eleven years old to become an Olympic athlete. Since then, he’s been setting and completing similar goals for himself and helping others, like Tiger Woods and Lance Armstrong, to do the same.
In our chat today, Jeff shares the qualities he feels are necessary to motivate us to set and accomplish big personal challenges. Jeff explains how this is all part of the bigger picture of creating a life of value that allows us to give back to others. As he tells us, it’s not an easy process, but nothing worth having ever comes easy. To help break it all down, Jeff lays out the fundamentals of his Goal Achievement Roadmap that is aimed at helping anyone see their goals through to fruition.
