    A New Way of Thinking/Setting Goals for 2022, with Neill Williams

    A New Way of Thinking/Setting Goals for 2022, with Neill Williams

    Have you laid out your goals for 2022?

    While some of you have begun setting goals for the coming year, many of you may have not yet started. That’s ok, because I know a lot of us can begin to feel overwhelmed when thinking about mapping out a plan for the new year.

    I sat down with Neill Williams to talk about how to set and achieve goals for the upcoming year.

    When it comes to setting goals for next year, there are two ways to do it: achievement-oriented goals, and growth-oriented goals.

    Achievement-oriented goals are set with an accomplishment in mind. Reaching these goals are pretty much 100 percent under your control. You either do it, or you don’t. Success is not dependent upon anyone but yourself. We set these kinds of goals just to get something done.

    The other kind of goal you set is for growth. That's literally it. You set a goal that requires you to grow in some way to be able to achieve it. The point of that goal is not to reach it. The point of it is the growth that you get while going after it.

    Today, Neill and I are going to walk you through a goal-setting strategy for 2022. We talk about the mindset challenges that can come up, and how to deal with them. We also look at how to decide what kind of goals we want to set for the new year.

    In this episode, you’ll learn:

    Two types of goals for a successful 2022How to expand your decision-making abilitiesThe million dollar mindset for business growthHow to double your revenueWhy failure is crucial to your successThe right way to set goalsBuilding upon what’s already workingLinks & Resources Mentioned in this Episode:

    What’s NOT Working Right Now

    What’s NOT Working Right Now

    Let’s talk about a big misconception that a lot of people have about success.

    This might ruffle a few feathers. It might even ruffle a lot of feathers, but the big misconception goes something like this: if you’re not working your face off, if you're not working 80 hours a week, you’re not going to be successful.

    In other words, if you’re not hustling—if you’re not working non-stop—you aren’t going to be successful.

    Don't get me wrong, some hustle is good. But not when it comes at the expense of your relationships and your health.

    Hustle is not a badge of honor. It can lead to physical and mental breakdowns. It can damage your relationships with the people you love the most.

    And hustle is no guarantee that you’ll be successful. I know plenty of very successful people that work way less than you would think they do.

    So, today I’m going to give you some practical steps you can take to hustle less, reduce stress, and be successful in your business.

    In this episode, you’ll learn:

    How to increase your profit by hustling lessThe key component to working less than 25 hours per weekWhy setting a 12-month revenue goal is importantAn eye-opening exercise to help you maximize your efficiencyWhy you need to assign a value to everything you do in your businessTasks you should stop doing and delegate right nowWhat you should not be delegatingDeveloping systems and procedures to help you reach your goalsThe first thing you should put in your monthly planner/calendarLinks & Resources Mentioned in this Episode:

    (Best of!) Let’s Get Personal: a Q&A With My Wife Amy

    (Best of!) Let’s Get Personal: a Q&A With My Wife Amy

    What's up, my friends, thank you so much for tuning in today.
    Happy Thanksgiving to all of you in the US, and for everybody else who'll be having an amazing week, thank you for listening.
    Today, I wanted to share with you a “Best of,” episode. This is a replay of an episode, aired last summer, to celebrate episode number 400 here on the show.
    Now, you may have noticed, we just had our 550th episode here on the show. It’s just bonkers. That’s close to seven and a half million downloads, which I'm truly grateful for.
    I want to share this episode with you again, because I get asked about this show all the time.
    For episode number 400, I invited my wife on the podcast. This was the first time she'd ever been on the show. I had her ask me questions about the behind-the-scenes life, and having a young family and running a successful business.
    Many of you submitted questions that you wanted me to answer. So, I had Amy ask me those questions. I didn't know what the questions were ahead of time. So, we dive into a lot of topics here today that I've never discussed prior to that episode.
    So, without further ado, let's dive into this best-of episode with my wife, Amy.
    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    The story of how I met my wife and what our first impressions of each other wereSome of our favorite memories and places to travel togetherHow we try to create work-life balanceWhat a typical day/week looks like for meThe hardest thing about switching from a corporate job into entrepreneurshipHow long it took for me to feel like I’d “made it”How struggles with anxiety and depression have affected both of usThe one thing I would change in my business journey if I could go back in timeThe single most impactful mindset shift that I made in the way I relate to success in businessWhat it’s like to be a new dad and run a business Links & Resources

    How He Generated An Extra $6,500 By Asking "What if This Were Easy?"

    How He Generated An Extra $6,500 By Asking "What if This Were Easy?"

    Today, I want to talk about an example of answering the question, “What if it were easy?”
    “What if this were easy?” is something I, or our coaches, ask our Accelerator program members all the time. I want our members to have a question about how to do something.
    I say, “What if it were easy? What would it look like if it were easy?”
    We try to over-complicate things all the time. For years I tried to over-complicate things.
    And let’s just be honest, I still do that sometimes today, too.
    When you can ask yourself, “What would this look like if it were easy?” it opens up a whole new lens that you can think about how to do something.
    In this episode, you’ll learn:
    How to repurpose your most popular content for more revenueGetting quick and easy wins with minimal effortUsing your repurposed content funnel to grow your membership 
    Are you a course creator or online coach who’s already averaging at least $7-8K in revenue per month from your online business and you’re ready to increase your profit, have a bigger impact, with LESS hustle?
    If you’re feeling overwhelmed, doing all the things, and you’re not sure what next steps you should be taking in your business…
    Then my Accelerator coaching program may be for you.

Top Shelf!

Thank you Rick for being the kind of lighthouse entrepreneurs need! Keep the light on and the bright messages shining!

sewheidi ,

Finally real actionable advice from an honest & legit guy

There are so many j.u.n.k. business podcasts out there with hosts who think they know it all yet are barely seeing results themselves. Or they’re just fluffy stories without real advice. Rick’s podcast is SO different! Been binging all the episodes (even the super early ones are still relevant) and love every show, even when the title doesn’t seem like it will apply to me (it somehow always does). Appreciate the insights that Rick and his guests share, really valuable stuff for people at 6-figs trying to get to 7 (there’s not much out there in this niche). Thanks so much Rick! Appreciate all the hard work from you and your team to put this content out. - Heidi
