MYM #78 Alden Sparks ~ Shut Up and Listen

Alden is only 25 going on 26 and I was amazed at some of the things that he has done and is doing. I had to humble myself – Shut Up and Listen – and learn from a young kid half my age!

First Alden shared about the difference between a state and a goal. Then we got into SMART goals which many of you have heard of. Then we got into some really good stuff, Alden shared some of his NLP secrets to help us achieve our goals this year.

Lots of great information here and like I said I just shut up and listened. Hope you get as much out of it as I did.
