Hey there, Family Brand community! Chris here and in this episode, I had the pleasure of chatting with Michael Hyatt, a renowned expert in goal setting and achievement, not to mention his best-selling books and online programs that have impacted millions around the world! Michael is our first-ever repeat guest, so you might remember him from episode 120!
We are excited to have him on the show because his book "Your Best Year Ever" has officially now been relaunched with updated content and is full of wisdom on setting and achieving meaningful goals. He gives this just a taste of what’s inside, so if you want to be a more intentional leader or if you’re a family-minded entrepreneur, this episode is perfect for you!
A key takeaway from this episode is the importance of the transformation of limiting beliefs into empowering truths. Michael advocates that the words we utter are not merely statements but the architects of our future. By shifting our narrative from "I can't" to "I am committed," we change course towards a realm of limitless potential! If you’ve been listening to the show for long, you know we believe this as well!
Michael's SMARTER framework for goal setting, an enhanced version of the traditional SMART model, emphasizes making goals risky, exciting, and relevant. This approach encourages us to step out of our comfort zones, fostering an environment where real growth and transformation can occur.
In our chat we brought to light the significance of defining what winning looks like in our lives and for our families. It's a concept that extends to all areas - marriages, families, and professional goals. This idea isn't just about listing out objectives; it's about crafting a vision for our lives that is both inspiring and motivating, a vision that guides our every step. We know you are going to love it!
