is Excited to Announce the Launch of our First Podcast
Fear of Failure, Fear of Success, The Impostor Syndrome are fears that affect our success. Do you suffer from these? I wrote the speech linked here for my 10th Speech in the Competent Communicator manual for Toastmasters International. I am a member of a company Toastmasters Club. Completing the CC as it is called is a big step for me.
Creating and launching the Goal Getting Podcast has been exciting and I have put a log of hard work in getting this launched. I have achieved my goal that I set. However, it wasn’t easy. It should have been easier this time around. I did a podcast back in 2004. It didn’t take me very long to get it up and running.
I was fascinated about motivational speakers. I loved to go to hear motivational speakers because I get really excited. It is almost riding a roller coaster. They talk about cool things like new cars, big houses, traveling in motorhomes, luxury yachts and the big dreams.
A good motivational speaker will get you pumped up, they will get you motivated. They should, that’s their job. I have walked away from these motivational speakers ready to go tear up the world!
Then my stinkin’ mind would kick in –
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 660 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 11 trips to carry that many people.

9 Steps to Successful Goal Achievement
I just finished writing my eBook – 9 Steps to Successful Goal Setting and was wondering if I should try to sell it on Amazon or here on my blog. I think it was timely that I ran across this post by Jeff Bullas. Jeff has pointed out a lot of great things on his post that would be very beneficial.
I plan to give my new eBook to listeners of my podcast Goal Getting – Don’t Just Set’em, Get’em – The Goal Getting Podcast at not cost, yes FREE. Look for it to launch in early January. And when you see it and send me your email, I will send you your Free Copy.
But I have to think. Do I want to sell it on Amazon. That would be cool to be a published author. It has been one of my goals. I should do what I can to achieve that goal.
What does Jeff have to say?
Should you Sell Your Book on Amazon or Your Blog via Jeff Bullas’ Blog.
Goal Achievement Is A Journey
Sometimes you must make your own path to achieve those goals.
By Tony Woodall
Host of Goal Getting Podcast
Hiking up a mountain to be able to climb the highest tree. Making your own path up that hillside to arrive at the final destination is what you have to do sometimes. If that’s what you want, you do what it takes.
When I was young, I decided I wanted to be successful. I wanted to be better than I was. I started attending seminars presented by motivational speakers. I would get psyched up and excited about the potential for my success. I noticed a lot of people like me, getting excited and psyched up about going out and achieving their dreams.
The one thing that I never remember seeing or learning while at all of the motivational seminars I attended, was How To Achieve Those Dreams. I love motivational seminars and believe they are critical for us to keep up positive thoughts when we are stressed and tired.
I don’t, however, think they go far enough to teach us how to reach those dreams, to achieve those goals we get so excited about. So, I studied goal setting. I learned more and more about what it takes to achieve goals, to Get Goals We Set! I learned to be a Goal Getter.
Setting Goals Properly Works!
Set Your Path and Achieve Your Goals
When you start on your path to achieve a goal, you are often confronted with many obstacles and struggles that keep you from achieving that goal.
Does your journey seem to take you away from the goals you want to achieve? Sometimes it seems that way. Oftentimes, that journey seems like you are going around the wrong way. When you look at it you may just be going around the obstacles to get to the same goal, but without the uphill battles you would normally need to take.
On the other hand, If it seems that your journey is taking you off course from your destination, then sometimes you must make your own path. Some times you must do what it takes to stay lined up on your goal, even if the path requires you to work a little harder to to get to the ultimate goal.
It’s New Year’s Resolution Season
I say season, because like a sports season, people set New Year’s Resolution right before the beginning of the new year and they typically keep up with them for about three months afterward. The New Year’s Resolution Season lasts from December through March. Why does it last such a short time?
New Year’s Resolutions DON’T WORK! Goals Work!
