Most of us realize that it is difficult to achieve anything great, unless you have a clear goal in mind. I can’t think of one famous success in America that got to the pinnacle by sheer accident. I can’t help but wonder why so few people in practice have a crisp list of goals jotted down in black and white.
Here are five great quotes / reminders regarding goals and why it is worth working on your personal list this coming weekend:
Big goals get big results. No goals get no results or someone else’s results.
— Mark Victor Hansen
A winner is someone who recognizes his God given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skills to accomplish his goals.
— Larry Bird
Nothing can add more power to your life than concentrating all of your energies on a limited set of targets.
— Nido Qubein
People with goals succeed because they know where they are going.. It’s as simple as that.
— Earl Nightingale
Set one small goal, then do what it takes until you achieve it. Repeat with a second goal, and then again. You will build up extraordinary momentum in only a few months when you start keeping your own commitments. Private, personal integrity is liberating.
