If you have been following The BOOM Podcast, you already know that youth motivational speaker and Amazon bestselling author Jeff Yalden has been laying out the daily steps on his new workbook The BOOM 28 Day Boot Camp: Creating a Life of Success. Find Motivation. Crush Goals. Overcome Obstacles. Live with Purpose.

“I am really trying to spell this out and make it as simple as possible, and excuse the term – I am trying to idiot-proof it for the people that have trouble refocusing, staying on a plan, creating a plan and staying consistent every single day,” Yalden said, adding that he wants you to go at your own pace.

Yesterday, the message was all about SMART Goals, and Yalden talked about a book written by a friend of his, speaker and author Jake Ballentine.

“I encourage you to read Your Number One Goal: Very well-written – very simple – and just really inspiring,” he said.

The BOOM Boot Camp workbook contains actionable messages based on Yalden’s Amazon bestseller, BOOM! One Word to Inspire Action, Deliver Rewards, and Positively Affect Your Life Every Day.

In Episode 27 of the BOOM Podcast, Yalden lays out his BOOM principle for Day 13:


Go back over your plan. Do you see it? Are you able to feel it? When you look at your plan, is it doable? Can you manage your life and fulfill making this plan happen?

Only you can answer that.

“If you are at a point where maybe it’s a little overwhelming – rewrite your plan.”

Remember: This is not about perfection. It’s about progress.

“This is about you,” said Yalden. “This isn’t about me. This isn’t about your friends. This is about you. The workbook says 28 Days, but if it takes you two months, don’t worry about it.”

Yalden wanted to let you in on a little secret. He said probably 10 percent of the people that buy this book will actually finish it.

“If it takes you two months to create a plan – to have a goal and to achieve that goal – then you are better off than 90 percent of the people that buy the book with all the intentions in the world but never finish it,” he said.

Do this on your own terms and at your own pace.

Rewrite your plan if you need to.

“If you have to go back to Day One and redo this all because now you are starting to feel it – now it’s starting to mean something to you – then stop everything and go back to Day One. When you go back, I want you to commit to doing it. And if Day One takes you two days or three days to do it – I’m OK with that.”

But don’t go on to Day Two until you are sure you are ready.

Maybe something happened to you yesterday and you need to refocus. Perhaps this new something is a priority. It’s OK to create a new goal.

“Whatever that might be, don’t get discouraged. Don’t be disappointed,” he said. “It’s one day at a time, but every single day, focus on where you are going – not where you have been.”

“It’s one day at a time – but every single day, you focus on where you are going, not where you’ve been. No matter what happens in our lives, we’re not victims. We rise up. We are victors.”

Adopt a new mindset and leave anger and bitterness behind – no matter what happens – and choose gratitude instead.

“I want you to start saying ‘thank you.’ Life does not happen to you. Life every day happens for you. Everything we go through, everything we encounter, every obstacle we face or every mountain we climb – whether it’s good or it’s bad – everything shapes us. Everything teaches us.”

Learn from your mistakes. Reevaluate your situation daily.

Take time for you. Self-care is not selfish.

“If you are going to go back to Day One, I still want you to take some time today to reevaluate and reassess your situation.”
