You gotta have a goal to hit a goal…

The most successful people in the world are extremely goal oriented. They know exactly what they want and they are always focused on achieving it.

Goals keep you focused. They keep you from drifting through life with no purpose. It does not matter where you came from. What matters is where you’re going. And you determine where you’re going by what you think about all the time.

The main difference between successful people and unsuccessful people is how they think. Successful people think about what they want and how to get it. Unsuccessful people think and talk about what they don’t want. Setting goals helps you keep thinking about where you want to go.

When you have clear goals you are pursuing every day, you’ll be more confident and more motivated.

Your goals need to be clear, written, and very specific. They also need to be measurable. You have to know when you
have achieved them.

If you set goals and write them down every day, you’re focused on your objective, and are much more likely to do things that will help you reach your goal. If you don’t write down your goals – or worse, if you don’t even have goals, you
get sidetracked and waste precious time. You only live once, you might as well go for the gold.

People who set goals live more meaningful and purposeful lives. They are more in control of their destiny and therefore happier. People are happier when they are doing something that is moving them towards something they want. Goal setting is so powerful that I’ll bet you get happy just thinking about achieving your goals.

What do you want to achieve?

What do you have a burning desire for?

Once you know exactly what you want and are willing to pay the price to achieve it, success will only be a matter of time.

Start making a habit of writing your goals down every day. It only takes a couple of minutes. Make it a rule that you can’t check you morning emails before you’ve written your goals down. I double-dog dare you to do this! And I guarantee you that if you do it for a year, your life will change dramatically!

Start talking about your goals to other people. See if you can get THEM writing their goals. It’s a great way to impact other people’s lives. FiveChannels experts say: focus on WHY you have those goals. The WHY is the driving force.

Once you start writing your goals, talking about your goals, and thinking about your goals, you will start turning into a success seeking guided missile that won’t miss.

What do you want to be?

What do you want to do?

What do you want to have?

What is something you can do in the next 15 minutes that will help you get closer to your goals? DO IT…NOW!
