What’s the secret to staying on track with your goals? Jon Acuff, a New York Times bestselling author, shares his insights about the power of positivity, overcoming fear, and the importance of goal-setting for personal growth. He discusses the significance of setting achievable goals, breaking them down into manageable steps, and finding joy in pursuing them. His own journey as a late bloomer proves that age should never limit your potential.
