Chapter 7, Page 23, Book 18

Focus on what it is that you want, set a realistic goal, Start setting goals that you feel you can accomplice.  Don’t try to go right to the top in one leap.  Every time you accomplish a goal you develop the strength and wisdom to accomplish the next one.

Chuck Norris

 Focus on what is important

Whatever you focus on is what you get.

Anthony Robbins

It’s important to set goals because goals give you focus.  Setting goals give your life direction and boosts your motivation.  

By setting goals we are able to focus on what is important to us.  They remind us of what we need to concentrate on.  Choosing what is most important in your life and then focusing on that in everything you do gets everything in the right perspective. 

 Once you place your attention on the what is truly important to you and focus on that everything else seems to fall in place.  If your goal doesn’t mean anything to you then it isn’t worth pursuing.  Tie your goals to your deeper values that give them more meaning.  

If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.

Benjamin Franklin

So do you think you are born with motivation or that you learn it? Sandie

Goals are great to set, better than resolutions at the start of the year. Good to write them down and then refer to them as the year goes by to see how much progress you are making on achieving them.

Coming back off vacation, I KNOW I need to drop 4-5 pounds. While they didn't just appear in a week's time, my issue is to ACCEPT this goal. LOL!

PS - I love Anthony Robbins' pearls of wisdom.

Without setting some sort of goals, it's difficult to find motivation and purpose. Then we just drift like a rudderless boat.


setting goals reminds us what is important. "If your goal doesn’t mean anything to you then it isn’t worth pursuing. "
