How to Reach IMPOSSIBLE Goals with Dr. Benjamin Hardy

Hear me out: What if you set the bar higher than you could ever imagine…

What if you allowed yourself to dream so big that it terrified you simply because you knew you’d have to let go of the things (strategies, offers, businesses) that are currently working, to get there?

This is what it means to “10x” your goals and when Dr. Benjamin Hardy explained how to do this and why it’s easier than just “2xing” them—my mind was blown.

Perhaps one of my favorite moments of the episode was when he said, “Going for an impossible goal forces you to let go of a lot of what you thought was true, and that's the beauty of it—it forces you to let go of outdated models and perspectives.” OK, WOW.

In this episode, you’ll learn the importance of exploring and pursuing impossible goals and the mindset that will help you develop the strategies to achieve them.
