have fantasies, dreams, hopes and wishes. However, successful people
turn these into goals. Goals are measurable. You can see or hear the
results by a certain time. If you want to lost weight, you must decide
how many pounds you want to lose by a certain date. The first goal in
weight loss might be to get help in setting your diet by next Friday.
If you want to improve your financial situation, you might set a goal
such as, “I will save $100.00 per month in my savings account for 12
months.” You might have a goal such as, “I will spend three hours per
week in individual time with my kids.”
These goals, when developed, can produce tremendous personal success
because you now have a specific target. The more specific you are, the
more successful you will be. In addition, if you’ll put them in
writing, or make a commitment with another individual, you will
increase your success. Start setting your goals today.
