Most people don't know this about me, but growing up my family was almost always financially in trouble.

Often times we used kerosene lanterns for light and frequently boiled water to take hot baths. It's safe to say that as a youngster, I was always a little worried we were going to be homeless. Not something most kids should be worried about, but it's difficult for a bigger family to survive in a high cost-of-living state like Hawaii.

Anyway, having had these experiences, I made a promise to myself that I was going to try and change the narrative. Looking back, I know one of the most important things I did was start to set some goals for myself.

And we talk about goal setting a lot on this channel and in our different communities because it is extremely important for your personal growth.

Goal setting to not only track and make continual progress, but also to keep yourself motivated!

And with that I am really happy to share a great example of something that motivated my buddy Tom!

You see Tom also comes from humble beginnings. He had never purchased a brand new car and a goal he had set that motivated him was to one day be able to treat himself to one.

Well earlier this week, while we were strategizing our weekly marketing jam session, he broke the news to me that he was able to hit that goal.

So in this video – I am happy to share that moment with you.

Can you take a guess at what he bought!?
