Goals Quotes

Goals quotes are life changing. They will make you aware of just how important setting goals for your life really are.

This quote by Jim Rohn sums up why we need goals in the first place:

"The reason most people face the future with apprehension instead of anticipation is because they don't have it well designed."

How can you see your future as bright if you don't know exactly what you want it to be!

Still don't believe you need well defined goals. Maybe you think just as long as you have an idea of what you want then that should be good enough.

Well, according to Brian Tracy:

"An average person with average talent, ambition and education, can outstrip the most brilliant genius in our society, if that person has clear, focused goals."

Not only do you need to plan your life, but you must take action on your goals until you achieve them.

Denis Waitley said it best when he said:

"Failures do what is tension relieving, while winners do what is goal achieving."

  1. What are your goals?
  2. Are they well defined or just pie in the sky dreams?

Brian Tracy said:

"Committing your goals to paper increases the likelihood of your achieving them by (1000%) one thousand percent!" 

If you have ever read his story then you know Brian Tracy knows what he is talking about. (He started from very humble beginnings.)

So, when are you going to write your goals down on paper?

There is no time like the present to get started!
