Did you ever set a goal or New Year’s resolution only to abandon it? Do find your life lacks purpose? Do you doubt your ability to accomplish amazing things? Today’s show features Tal Gur, blogger, author, motivational speaker. Tal’s goal, or one of many, is to inspire you to set goals and achieve them.
The Start of a Life Journey
Some people may do one or two extraordinary things in their lifetime. Maybe it’s traveling to a far-away country, running a marathon, or mastering a foreign language. Tal Gur has done at least one hundred and counting. From learning to speak Spanish to becoming an international public speaker, Tal set out to live the dream. Abandoning the 9 to 5 job, he established a source of passive income and went on a journey. It was a journey of self- discovery and facing challenges head on. Each year he set a major life goal and accomplished it. After ten years, he penned his experience in the book, The Art of Fully Living: 1 Man. 10 Years. 100 Goals.
It may sound like for Tal goal setting and achievement come easy. Not so. He faced self-doubt and hurdles. After all, who would expect a smoker to do a triathlon? Tal felt doubt about this daring goal, especially since he was a smoker. He found ways to overcome the challenges. And he did, indeed, do a triathlon.
Tal considers a goal as the container. Your personal growth as you work towards the goal is what’s most important in setting and achieving goals.

Five Minutes to New Ideas
What input, if reduced, would allow you to cut the price for your product or service by 25%. To get ahead of the competition, you need to make game changing moves. A bold move like big savings could place you in the leader of the pack position. One car manufacturer with rock bottom prices may soon take U.S. manufacturers by surprise. Are there gaps in your product offering for a competitor to sneak a game changer into the marketplace? Could you make a sidestep in your product development to prevent this? For insight, listen to Five Minutes to New Ideas.
