COACHES, MENTORS, ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNERS, AND MASTERMIND PARTNERS – Recently, I was discussing with someone how much value I received from my Mastermind Partners from one of my more recent training seminars. The group of us were paired up early in the program to work together as we labored to earn our certification for the Jack Canfield, Train The Trainer certification, which took place over a year ago. Once we completed the certification program, we decided to keep our core group of people together and have been partners for almost a year and a half now.
So, I find myself just weeks from achieving one of my largest goals in my life. I certainly I can't say it's my biggest, or most meaningful, as being a great father or husband certainly lands at the top of my list these days. Additionally, team achievements with those I lead or work closely with probably are more meaningful for me now, as well. However, when I compare it my biggest individual goals in my life; Top Sales Performer achievements out of thousands of employees, National Kickboxing Championships, major fitness goals, starting my own first business, regardless of those things, this goal IS the biggest and most meaningful of my life!
Today’s blog is for those of us who find ourselves cranking along towards our goals, and then, all of the sudden, we seem to struggle with achieving our goals. Not even struggling to achieve, but even waning in our drive to even bother going after our goals. This happens to most everyone at some point, particularly when going after some of those larger goals.
