    She Succeeded: Get Ready to Re-ignite Drive & Achieve Your Goals in 2022

    She Succeeded: Get Ready to Re-ignite Drive & Achieve Your Goals in 2022

    The path to pursuing our goals and dreams is rarely a smooth, easy, or linear one. When we know what we want and have the passion, plan, and tools to achieve it, it feels like nothing can stop us.  But when unforeseen challenges and obstacles test our resilience, we need to take a moment to re-calibrate and create a new plan for achieving our goals.
    For many of us, 2021 has been a year of regaining our footing after the uncertainty of lockdowns, perhaps riddled with stops and starts, and getting back to a new sense of normal in a world that seems to be evolving faster than ever. If this sounds familiar to you, you may be looking to get back on track in 2022 to pursue the goals, passions, and dreams you’ve had to put on hold, maybe even defining new goals to pursue and achieve in the coming year.
    In this episode of our series She Succeeded (and You Can, Too!), we’re talking with Dr. Dravon James, author of Freedom is Your Birthright and host of the Everyday Peace radio show, who shares tangible steps we can take every day to re-focus, re-ignite our drive, and make our goals and dreams a reality in the new year. Let's do this!
