Setting Your Impossible Career Goals

In this episode, I dive deep into the topic of setting your impossible career goals. In today’s society, you are often told that we should set modest goals and not aim too high. But what if you don’t want to live a life of mediocrity? What if you’re the type of person who wants to push yourself to your limits and achieve great things? 

If this feels exciting to you, then it’s time to go ahead and set impossible goals! You may be excited at the initial thought, but also tempted to give up before you’ve even started. However, if you’re brave enough to continue, the feeling of accomplishment when you reach your goal is unbeatable. 

Today, I will walk you through setting impossible goals – goals that are challenging yet still within your reach. I’ll give you some tips on making sure your impossible goal is realistic, and also how to get started on achieving it. 

Setting impossible goals is a great way to achieve more than you ever thought possible. When you set your sights high and push yourself to reach the unreachable, you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve. So don’t be afraid to set impossible goals – just make sure that you’re willing to put in the hard work necessary to reach them!
