What if I told you that one of the key missing ingredients from your goal setting is you haven't planned to fail?

Why, you might ask, should you plan to fail? Isn't the whole point of going after your goals is to be successful? You're absolutely right. But here's what happens when we're going after our goals -- and it doesn't matter whether it's a big goal or a little goal. Going after your goals is not a linear line to success. What inevitably happens is that along the way we meet with challenges and things we didn't expect, or things just don't go the way that we expected.

And so the key to success is really preparing ourselves for that, preparing our minds for the fact that, hey, things could go wrong. Things could fail.

So how do you do it?

In this episode, you will learn the steps on how to mentally prepare yourself for what possible risks will look like, and understand the fact that you absolutely have the skills and the abilities to figure out a different plan.
