This week’s guest on the Changeability Podcast is Tarun Stevenson, joining us all the way from sunny Australia.
“When you’re setting goals, start working on becoming a person that can actually handle the goal you’ve set yourself.”
It being the beginning of February, this is traditionally the time of year when people begin to struggle with the impetus and enthusiasm of personal and business goals they may have set for the year, so we invited Tarun to talk about keeping your goals on track.
“The problem is not the problem, the problem is you keep talking about and thinking about the problem.”
Who is Tarun Stevenson?
Tarun is a personal development coach, teacher and speaker with the John Maxwell Team. He works with individuals and organisations, to identify obstacles and limitations in their growth and through development of leadership and communication skills help them realise their full potential.
We had a fascinating discussion with Tarun, in which he offered a wealth of information and knowledge on keeping your goals on track.
“If you have a dream, but you don’t believe inside of yourself that you either deserve it or you are somebody that could achieve it, then really you’re always going to find ways to sabotage yourself, you’re always going to find ways to limit you achieving that goal.”
