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.
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.
I sit here this morning writing, thinking about how we all have walls that at times surround us and keep us from achieving our goals.
Tear Down Your Walls!
Today we celebrate the Fall of the Berlin Wall. On November 9, 1989 the Berlin Wall started to dismantle. It took only 29 months since President Reagan’s speech.
Thank you to the Reagan Foundation for posting on YouTube.
As you read in a previous post, when we returned from our vacation we were notified that we had to move within 60 days . This move is my current wall.
Unexpected expenses, unexpected time to do things related to the move, are all barriers, a wall, albeit a temporary one, that keep me away from doing the things I need to achieve my goal that I had planned to complete by the end of November.
I am working on creating and producing my podcast, “Goal Getting, Don’t Just Set’em, Get’em”. My goal is to have it ready for launch by the end of November. I am not close to launching my podcast yet and have a lot to do. But, I won’t let this wall stop me. I will start to Tear Down This Wall.
Do you have walls that are you keeping from achieving your goals. Remember, the Berlin Wall did not fall with President Reagan’s words. It took 29 months, over 2 years, before the Berlin Wall began to fall. On November 9th, 1987 the wall started to fall. It took many more months before it was completely removed.
By removing the first barrier, the wall started to fall in small pieces, bit by bit. Your walls are the same. You just need to keep striving to achieve your goals and these walls will start to fall.
What is your biggest wall? Do you want to know how to start tearing down your walls? We are here to help. What can you do?

Tear Down Your Walls!
If you are a male, like me, it’s probably because you refused to stop and ask directions.
If this is your life you are asking about and not a physical location, it is a bigger problem. However, it isn’t because you are male, because this happens to all genders, but the cause is usually the same. It’s not because you didn’t ask for directions it’s because you didn’t plan your route. You didn’t set a goal, you didn’t set an action plan or more likely you probably didn’t WRITE IT DOWN. Did you know that only 5% of people that set a goal write it down.
You Didn’t Use Your Map!
