Goal Setting is the Necessary Ingredient to Achieve Success in your Life By Gary Ryan Blair
There is no purer form of success, no more exact and demanding test of what you are capable of, than to achieve a desirable outcome.
Although the definition of success varies for each individual, the fundamentals for achieving a goal are always the same.
It is a process that begins with decisiveness, proceeds to focus, advances to action, then carries on with persistence and follow-through before ending in victory.
There is no other way!
Goal setting takes your life and gives it direction as it helps you to determine the answers to 6 important questions:
-What you specifically want to achieve?
-Why is this achievement is so important to you?
-Who will help you to achieve this goal?
-Where do you currently stand in relation to this goal?
-How do you plan on accomplishing this goal?
-When, on what date will you achieve your goal?
These are questions that only one person can answer: You!
Since time is money, then goal setting is invaluable as it is your goals which keep you focused, on time, and on schedule.
Though it seems to be out of vogue to speak of goal setting, there is nothing more fashionable than success, which owes its very life to goals.
A Few Words On Success…
Success requires that you pass the test before learning the lesson.
Success requires patience to create anything of lasting value.
Success requires hard choices, full commitment, and total focus.
Success wants you to pursue your goals with great devotion and passion and says no to you when you are unprepared to appreciate it.
Success demands dedication, discipline, hard work, and courage.
Success requires your utmost attention and will not allow itself to be taken for granted.
Success must be earned, deserved, respected, and appreciated.
Success plays by specific, nonnegotiable rules; it will always require that goals be clearly identified, plans be set in place, and action consistently enforced.
Success requires goals — end of story!
