03: Completion: Why Some People Achieve It and Some Don't
Have you ever wondered why some people seem to rocket through their goals and projects enabling them to manifest whatever they envision? While others can't seem to complete what they started due to quitting their projects as soon as they hit a speed-bump or have to do something they don't want to do? Some of us only want to do the fun stuff and aren't willing to push through the boring and tedious parts of our passions and pursuits.
Does it take a "special" kind of person to accomplish what to many seems unreachable? Or is there a more fundamental approach which we might be overlooking that could enable us to do anything we set out to do? In this episode we take a closer look at a new way to see our projects…a way that can empower us to push through those difficult parts in order to reach the other side.
