There are hundreds of books and thousands of gurus that claim they can teach people how to set goals. Yet, year after year, we observe the same phenomenon: Only a tiny fraction of people who set goals actually achieve them. People make promises to themselves to strive for a better body, a better salary, or a better life partner, but statistics show that only 8 percent of them will get there.
You can visualize your goals, make declarations, and apply the habits of highly effective people, but unless you know how your brain works, all of those methods will be useless. Dr. Theo Tsaousides can reveal seven mental habits that sabotage people’s dreams. These are subtle ways of thinking and acting that, day-by-day, put a dent in our ability to set a goal, take action, and stick to a plan. And, while they are daily “sins,” they can become deadly: They can kill your chances for success and happiness.
Have Dr. Theo on your show to talk about:
- The unseen ways that your brain is preventing you from achieving your goals
- How procrastinators are like drug addicts.
- Why persistence can be a slippery slope.
- The myth of multitasking.
- How to switch from busy to productive.
