Goals vs. Fantasies: Have you set your goals or are you still involved in fantasy? Successful people set goals and then achieve those goals.

Everyone should 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 youll put them in writing, or make a commitment with another individual, you will increase your success. Start setting your goals today.
