Goals are what take us forward in life; they are the oxygen to our dreams. They are the first steps to every journey we take and are also our last

Today I’m thankful for goals

While I do believe it is important to live in the moment, I also believe it’s important to set goals. Being grateful for all you have now sets the stage for realizing your goals in the future.

If you don't know where you're going, how will you get there... or so the saying goes.

One way to keep momentum going is to have constantly greater goals. 

Michael Korda

The ability to effectively set goals throughout life is one of the most important skills that any of us can have.  Having goals creates a general can do attitude and results in higher levels of happiness throughout life.  Having a predetermined idea of what constitutes a good outcome improves the chance of being satisfied with the end result 

If you're bored with life -- you don't get up every morning with a burning desire to do things -- you don't have enough goals. 

Lou Holtz

Accomplishing our goals, is even more possible when we start with a foundation of gratitude. When we make the choice to feel grateful about where we are, while striving to create something more, our lives are filled with greater joy and purpose.  

You may not accomplish every goal you set -- no one does -- but what really matters is having goals and going after them wholeheartedly. 

Les Brown

I do agree it is good to set goals. It does help us to stay focused on accomplishing things. And I also agree setting goals should start with an attitude of gratitude.

You are right we need to live for now but also, common sense says have a goal or destination. I have a friend who says, if you don't know where you are going any road will take you there.


Having goals improves our outlook, it's true. "Having a predetermined idea of what constitutes a good outcome improves the chance of being satisfied with the end result "
