I know, I talk about goals a lot. They’re so important to creating your dream life because they give you a direction to go in. After all, how can you get where you want to go without a map to guide you?

But having a roadmap isn’t the only reason you should set great goals for yourself. The right goal holds a lot of power, and in today’s episode I’m sharing seven surprising reasons you should set goals. Yes, this episode is timed perfectly with the New Year, but goals should be part of your life all year long - and this episode will tell you why. (Number five is one of my favorites!)

Have a listen, then sit down and write yourself some goals!
