So, you’re trying to figure out whether you should attend a goals retreat, but it doesn’t seem like the kind of thing you would want to do. Well, I’m here to share some lessons that I learned by recently attending one.

Hey, there! It’s Billy once again with KeePon Cashflow. I’m here to share with you a number of different strategies and tips for how you can make more money, have control over your free time, and ultimately live with less stress.

Now, you probably want me to get to the meat of the content, so let’s do that.

I was recently going through a lot of uncertainty, trepidation, and, quite honestly, some uneasiness. Most of you already know that I work in a corporate job and spend a lot of time there. I work to make sure I can bring more and more success to our customers every day. You’re probably doing something similar because you’re part of this community, too.

I’ve thought about spending some time out of the office to invest in myself and focus on my goals. Most of you also know that I take goal setting very seriously because it’s something I’ve talked to you about in the past. However, I’ve never actually invested in a two-and-a-half day course on introspection, where I focused on my goals. It went beyond financial goals and started looking at spiritual and community goals. Most of us have fear and concerns, and we have things that hold us back. I’m no different. But what I’ve learned is how to deal with those fears and that uneasiness.

I’m also fortunate that the organization I work for encourages its employees to follow their dreams. For instance, the previous CEO of the company I work for is someone who’s written a bestselling book. One of the current CEOs is someone who has a podcast about topics that aren’t directly related to our company. This person inspires millions of people around the globe. So, I thought, well, if they’re doing it, why not invest time in myself? I decided to do just that, and I’m so glad I did because I have a few pieces of advice I want to share with you.

Most people don’t think about their goals. It was a pretty interesting statistic regarding the number of Americans who did not take the time to write down their goals. While I was at this retreat, I learned a lot more about myself. I don’t want you to fall into that same statistic, so here are three lessons I learned.

Number one is to go back to the basics. When you go to a retreat, you can really focus on your goal-setting. I was gone for two-and-a-half days, so it gave me a clear roadmap for what I would like to accomplish for myself, my team, and my family, on many different levels. I now have clear milestones that are time-bound throughout the year, which will help me know whether or not I am on task.

The second lesson that stood out to me was that I was surrounded by many like-minded people. They were other people who were interested in investing in themselves to have clarity in their goals, including what they want to achieve and how they want to be able to help others. Being surrounded by like-minded people for two-and-a-half days was a fantastic experience.

The third lesson was about networking. I was listening to a podcast, The Real Estate Guys, and Russell Gray was talking about the importance of networking. I also realized that when you attend a retreat, especially one about goal setting, you’re meeting with people from very different backgrounds, who have different mindsets and are able to convey their different points of view. It will change the way you look at the world. In this way, you’re able to learn and grow.

So, like I said, this was something I wanted to share with you because I was struggling in the beginning, too. And by going through with it and breaking through that fear, I was able to get a good perspective on more than just my finances and my family. The other perspectives from the people around me also helped to give me a clear focus for the year with clear milestones to help me stay on track. It gave me the opportunity to be surrounded by like-minded people, which helped my personal growth, and it gave me plenty of networking opportunities.

It will also help you in the moment and beyond as you foster those relationships and build a network that will be extremely valuable to you.
