I feel stuck! And isn’t it just the height of irony?


I feel stuck!


And isn’t it just the height of irony that I, the author of 'Goal Smasher,' find myself wanting to bury my head in the sand? Yeah, you heard that right. The very person who penned a book on smashing through your goals is at a standstill.


But here’s the kicker: I didn’t write 'Goal Smasher' because I’m some guru at achieving goals. Quite the contrary—I’ve spent a good chunk of my life missing the mark on my own ambitions.

It wasn’t until I found myself wandering the virtual halls of some of the finest schools around (hello, Oxford and Harvard) that a light bulb went off. Success isn’t about luck. It's about tangible skills and real strategies that you can learn and apply. And that revelation was a game-changer for me. I realized that what 'they' know—the secret sauce to hitting those seemingly elusive targets—isn't so secret after all. I was so pumped about this discovery that I just had to share it, hoping we all could grow from it.


But today, I’m swallowing a dose of my own medicine. I’m frustrated, stuck, disappointed, and yeah, feeling like throwing in the towel. And we all know that giving up is the numero uno reason why wishes remain just that—a wish instead of becoming our reality. So, in a moment of desperation, I turned to page 157 of my own book, seeking the words I’d once written for others, now seeking solace and guidance for myself. I needed to remind myself of the science behind why we often want to quit when the going gets tough.

And here's what I found: my own reminder that the urge to quit isn't a sign of failure but a common part of the human experience. It's our brain's way of saying, 'Hey, this is hard, and I'm not sure we can do it.' But it's also in this moment of doubt that we have the most to gain by pushing through. Because on the other side of that frustration and disappointment is growth and, potentially, the very success we've been striving for.


So, if you’re feeling like me—stuck, frustrated, on the verge of giving up—I invite you to join me in taking a break, treating our brains to something good, and revisiting our ikigai to remind us of our purpose. Haven’t filled out your ikigai yet? No worries, grab your free copy here and start the journey of rediscovery with me. Remember, it’s not about being great at achieving goals right out of the gate. It’s about growing into the person who can.

Let’s navigate these murky waters together. Because sometimes, the best way to smash those goals isn’t by charging ahead blindly but by pausing, reflecting, and recalibrating. And hey, if I can do it, so can you. Let’s grow and smash those goals, one step at a time.


We Got This!
