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.” – Henry Ford

Key points to setting goals

  • A goal is something you are going after that you’ve never done before.
  • A goal is designed to help you grow, it causes you to draw something from yourself that you didn’t even know was there.
  • If you know how to reach your goal, the goal is not going to do for you what goals are designed to do.
  • If you’re really going to accomplish something, you’re going to need to be inspired by going after something you really want, it’s going to have to come from inside.

There are three types of goals

  • Type A goals are doing something you already know how to do.
  • Type B goals are what you think you can do.
  • Type C goals are your wants. What you really want. Type C goals come from your fantasies and are originated through the effective use of your imagination.

Write down your personal and professional goals. Write your goal in once concise sentence. Look at your goal every morning, and as often as you can throughout the day, and every night.

“You Were Born Rich”

Some of the most success people in the world have been quoted to say…

“What lies before you and what lies behind you are tiny matters compared to what lies within you.” – Emerson

“This great dream, this surging dynamic thing, invisible to all the world except to the person who holds it, is responsible for every great advance of man.” – Earl Nightingale

“Decide what you want. Decide what you are prepared to give up to get it. Set your mind on it. Get on with the work.” – H.l. Hunt

“Those who reach decisions promptly and definitely, know what they want, and generally get it. The leaders in every walk of life decide quickly, and firmly. That is the major reason why they are leaders. The world has a habit of making room for the person whose words and actions show they know where they are going.” – Napoleon Hill
