A lot of people know about goal setting. And many of them "practice" it. 

It usually comes at the end of December each year where they set their New Years Resolutions. They vow to lose weight, eat better, do more exercise, read more, save more, start their own business, work hard to get the promotion, spend more time with their loves ones. And the list goes on.

Some people set and hit their goals. And they're often the ones who are killing it, and advocating for the importance of goal setting.

But there are also some of us who set the same goals, time after time and make the same resolutions year after year. And each time they're going unfulfilled.

What's missing? Why does it seem easier for some people than for others?

In Episode 10 of The Badminton Podcast, I talk to Henry about hitting goals rapidly.  More specifically, I share 5 proven steps that will take you from where you are right now, to where you want to be. We talk deeply about where the internal drive and motivation comes from to achieve our goals, as many of us can run out of steam and find ourselves settling for what we have, rather than reaching for what we want.

It's one of our most popular episodes and once you've had a listen, you'll see why.

Here it is for quick access, but of course, feel free to listen to it on your favourite platforms such as Spotify, Stitcher, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Breaker, Anchor, Overcast, Pocket Casts, RadioPublic, Player FM. Just search for "The Badminton Podcast".

 Let's go smash those goals!

How Badminton Can Profoundly Impact The World

Some of us may think that badminton is just a sport or game that can be played for fun, exercise, socialisation, entertainment or competition. And while playing has many benefits, unless you're actually coaching or teaching others to play, they only seem to be for that one person who is on the court.
