Goal Setting Information


Focus


To have a goal is like having a road map. It shows you where to go, and where not to go. Would you begin a trip to an unknown city without first looking at a map? Probably not.

Amazingly though, many people conduct their lives without any personal road map to success. Goals are like a map. They help us determine where we want to end up, and give us personal direction on which to focus our energy.

Once you decide what it is you want, set your sights and start taking action to achieve it. This "action" is the commitment on your part. And, once you are committed to a goal, really committed, problems are short term. With your entire "focus" on your goal, you will reach levels of achievement that you never thought possible.

Without goals, you will end up going nowhere, or, you will end up following someone else's map!

Develop your map today - set your goals and focus!

"The sun's energy warms the world. But when you focus it through a magnifying glass it can start a fire. Focus is so powerful!" Alan Pariser
