What is a Goal?
The dictionary defines goals as “the object of a person’s ambition or effort; an aim or desired result”.
If someone were to stop you on the street, and ask you, “What is your goal”— how would you respond?
Do you have goals? Are they written down? And if they’re not written are they really a goal?
Imagine you have access to all the resources you’ll ever need and you can have anything you want.
What would you choose or target to begin moving towards? What do you really want?
Before you begin looking at the ABC’s of goal setting, take a close look at your belief system.
If a person attempts to accomplish something beyond their level of belief, the mind will quickly and automatically create ideas or reasons justifying why it can’t be done, and those ideas will continue to flow until the project is abandoned.
On the other hand, when a person or group believes something can be done the mind will automatically begin creating ideas that will pave the path to accomplishment.
Having problems defining or reaching your goals? I can help.
The great secret of progress then lies in Belief.
Therefore we must ask and demand answers to these questions:
Do I have good, sound reasons for my beliefs?
Where did my beliefs come from?
Would changing my beliefs improve my life?
How do I change my beliefs?
Our beliefs are based on our evaluation of something. Frequently when we reevaluate a situation
our belief about that situation will change. Check your beliefs with respect to what you think you can accomplish in your personal and business life.
“Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you’re right.”

Successful people dislike the same things you do, but they do them anyway. They get up early. They make sure they’re in front of a prospect every morning at 9:00 a.m. They practice or study while others are watching TV.
Here are three things you can do to get started:
Realize that if you want something different in life, you’re going to have to do things differently. Then, command yourself to do what you know has to be done.
Begin scheduling your day—from the time you get up until the time you go to bed. If you have a schedule, you’re more apt to do more of the things you really need to do to get where you want to go.
Hold the image of being successful at what you want to do. Envision a complete shift. And proceed to let that vision unfold every day. It won’t be easy at first; however, you’ll get stronger and stronger. And then you’ll be able to do what you want, instead of just what you think you can do.
