Why Goal Setting Doesn't Work With Dax Moy

Did you know that goal setting doesn’t work?

Did you also know that accountability and mindset training doesn’t work either?

I know… that’s some straight up BS right there… isn’t it?

Almost every single entrepreneur and successful business person…

Sets goals, works on dialing in their mindset and has had coaches that hold them accountable.

If that’s the case then why am I saying “they doesn’t work?”

Well, I came across this crazy idea because of Dax Moy.

So I wanted to interview him on this because it sounds like what he is saying is the exact opposite of almost everyone else.

I mean, have you ever heard of someone in the entrepreneurial world say that goal-setting doesn’t work?

Maybe one or two people. But it’s very rare.

So when Dax starting talking about it I knew it was time to speak to him about it.

I knew there was a deeper level to it than just “goal setting doesn’t work,” or mindset training doesn’t work.

And that’s exactly where Dax goes in this episode.

He goes into how the brain has to be running optimally first before goal setting, mindset, accountability, and all those things can work.

If the brain is not running right, it doesn’t matter what type of goals you set, or how much mindset work you do, or even how many coaches you have…

It’ll be damn hard to get where you want to go.

And it was a pretty fascinating conversation especially hearing about how Dax ended up on this journey,

So if you’re into becoming a better entrepreneur and achieving success or maybe even understanding your customers and clients better…

This will be an interesting interview to listen to.

And if nothing else you will get to learn exactly why goal setting doesn’t work if the brain is not in the right place.

So check it out…
