On this episode of the Achieve Your Goals podcast, Jon Berghoff outlines 5 factors for expanding your personal potential!

At the beginning of the show, Jon looks back and smiles about his early days living with Hal. When they weren’t pulling pranks and playing Jet Moto, they were challenging each other’s ability to succeed. It was no coincidence that out of tens of thousands of sales reps, two people who lived in the same apartment became #1 and #2 for their company. The powerful and positive behaviors that were established were a direct result of living together in the same environment.

Jon’s stories ultimately lead to a challenge for you to take a look at your own environment. Not just in the sense of how being around others can affect your behavior, but also how your physical environment can affect your spiritual energy. What’s distracting you or causing you to lose focus? What’s cluttering up your life? What subtle adjustments can you make to your physical environment that will allow you to be more in control of each and every day?

Jon goes on to share the additional factors he’s learned from Hal and many other thought leaders on how to reinvent and re-wire your personal potential. He talks about improving your well being through movement and nutrition, using the concept of the Hero’s Journey to gain perspective, and the benefits of having a formal meditation practice.

The factors outlined in today’s episode are just a handful of the things that can take your potential to the next level. And the best part… you can start taking action on all of them today!
