Are You Energized With Your Goals!?
I know I am, I think about them continuously through the day every day and I know I’m moving slowly towards them.
Goal setting quotes are a great tool to encourage, motivate, and inspire us to take action towards our goals. These small items can be very powerful in feeding our subconscious with positive material.
“A goal properly set is halfway reached.” – Abraham Lincoln
“Focus on your potential instead of your limitations.” – Alan Loy McGinnis
“Goals give you more than a reason to get up in the morning; they are an incentive to keep you going all day. Goals tend to tap the deeper resources and draw the best out of life.” – Harvey Mackay
“By recording your dreams and goals on paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person you most want to be. Put your future in good hands — your own.” Mark Victor Hanse
There is nothing like a good, old-fashioned, “it’s got to be done by this deadline” requirement that gets you fired up, focused, and into the game. – Gary Ryan Blair
Focused and fired up!
Here’s a few of favourite ‘goals’ quotes….
Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal. ~Henry Ford
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars. ~Les Brown
If you don’t know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else. ~Lawrence J. Peter
Only as high as I reach can I grow, only as far as I seek can I go, only as deep as I look can I see, only as much as I dream can I be. ~ Karen Ravn
Goals are dreams with deadlines. ~ Diana Scharf Hunt
Wonder why some people could not even achieve an inch of what they dream of becoming? Blame it on pure dreaming and lack of setting goals for achieving their dreams.
Setting goals is a very significant part of success and positive accomplishments. It is like scaling a 1000 foot building and marking early on what feet you would like to reach at this specific period.
People who set goals literally create a map of their target achievements in life, marking where they should begin, where to pause, where to delve a bit, and where and when to stop. Once this map is created, it allows the map drawer to check where he is in the scheme of things and whether or not he is making some achievements that will take him closer to his goals.
By setting goals, people will know how they are doing and what they should be doing to achieve their targets or dreams in life. They will know if they can relax or if they have to double their efforts when they are falling short of what is expected of them.
Goal setting means a person is proactive in dealing with challenges that may affect his plans. Being proactive means one is able to outline possible difficulties that may occur as well as the solutions to these difficulties. By doing this, a person is not easily scared or defeated when challenges occur because he has already prepared for them. He knows they can happen and he has prepared a solution or strategy when that time comes.
Setting goals will enable people to track their progress in whatever endeavor they have set out to do. It will help people become more confident in themselves and more motivated to achieve their plans.
However, goal setting is not enough, as this should be accompanied by a positive outlook and self-discipline. A person may have a blueprint of where he wants to go, but if he does not have the necessary discipline to carry out the plan, then nothing will come out of it.
To be successful in goal setting, the goals that one has set for himself should be realistic and based on his capabilities, as well as selected and important external factors. Being too ambitious in setting up goals can make the goals unrealistic and difficult to achieve. However, do not also set goals that are too low because this might discourage one’s vision instead of achieving it.
It is also necessary that the person setting the blueprint for his direction should also include a time frame within which the goal will be achieved. This way, he is able to determine if he has to fast track his strategies or to slow down a bit. Goal setting will also help a person check if he is performing within his plans or if he is doing things towards the achievement of his plans.
Once you have achieved something, even a little of what you hoped to achieve, then you should always give yourself a pat in the back to keep you motivated. But do not be too complacent with any little achievement, as this may cause you to backslide.
Setting goals can be used in any aspect of one’s life – from one’s personal or family life, to his career and finances. Goal setting can be as simple as setting a target weight when you wish to lose pounds or something big, like earning your first million.
When setting goals, it is always important to set standards that would suit your present situation, your capabilities, and other factors that may influence the achievement of your goal.
Goals are imperative!
Got Momentum on Your Goals?
By Jill Koenig
I am here to remind you that there has never been a better time in human history to go after your Goals and Dreams than right now.
But you need Momentum.
I set my Goals, took immediate massive action, started the journey and have taken action every single day since then.
What I lacked in technical knowledge, I made up for with massive action. Momentum.
What I lacked in financial backing, I made up for with massive action. Momentum.
What I lacked in skill, I made up for with massive action. Momentum.
Massive action = Momentum
I didn’t wait for everything to be perfect, for the economy to be just right, for every circumstance to line up in my favor- I just got started and took massive action.
I can assure you, whatever you want to do, whatever Goals you aspire to achieve, whatever Dreams you yearn for, you can have them. But not if you don’t ever begin and not if you don’t commit to taking massive action right now today.
The ball is in your court. Always has been, always will be.
You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going.
Whatever you lack, make can up for with massive action.
What can you do today to advance your most cherished Goal?
Take the first step and revise your plan as you go.
Do it NOW.
Live Your Dreams.
