“The greatest use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it. — William James.
I’d like to thank Brandon Clay for the 5 Star Rating on iTunes and his nice review – Brandon says:
Get your mind playing for your team” – love the line. It is so true that measuring is the first step to doing. Keep up the Great work, Tony!”
Thanks Brandon. Brandon is referring to the episode where I talked about how we have to Stop Letting our mind play goalie for the other team. You know how when you are getting ready to start or achieve a goal, you mind comes up and starts that negative, stinkin’ Thinkin’ and like the goalie for the other team, Slaps down your goal! BAM!
So, Don’t Let Your Mind Play Goalie for The other Team.
That’s not our quote for today, we did that one a few days ago. Today’s quote is one that my friend Beau Henderson of The RichLife recommended on the podcast the other day. If you haven’t listened to Beau, you can find his Podcast by CLICKING HERE and listen to his interview where he talks about the 10 Investments for True Wealth and helps you learn to live the RichLife.
Beau’s quote is from William James, an American Philosopher and the Father of American Psychology.

Isn’t that what we want to be able to do? Leave a legacy, whether it be for our children, our family, or just the world in general.
We have had a couple of great guests lately that talk about living the RichLife and Living on Purpose. And I think that is something that many of us strive for. It is something that has been resonating with me lately. And as one of my mentors and friend, Aaron Walker talks about, we should strive to grow from Success to Significance.
Are you using your life to spend it for something that will outlast it?
Thank you again for listening to Goal Getting Podcast where every Wednesday we provide guests or information that will help you get the goals you set.
One of the things that Brandon Clay was talking about in his review on iTunes was that it is true that measuring is the first step to doing. That’s one of the major steps we teach on Goal Getting Podcast. Measuring your goals. Setting up your action plan and then doing daily measurements of them to ensure that you do them. Part of that measurement includes paying yourself / rewarding yourself for achieving those steps.
