Many people fail in life, not for lack of ability or brains, or even courage, but simply because they have never organized their energies around a goal. – Elbert Hubbard

Set your Goals, manage your Motivation, and create Power Habits that support your journey, and you will absolutely build unstoppable Momentum toward what you want.

To create purpose and passion, it is necessary to find the proper goal to focus on, and then maintain focus on that goal. Goal setting is just a tool that enables us to maintain that focus, that concentration on what we say we want.

It is just a set of decisions we make about our life plans and strategies. In fact, proper long-term decision-making depends on a well-thought-out life plan. (Proper Decisions Require Good Solid Information) Then all we need to do is to take the necessary action that will create those goals in our life. Positive or Negative, it is always our choice. We have complete control over our thoughts, our mind’s focus. We can make it happen!

What we focus on will expand and what we don’t focus on will contract. We will become, do or have the goals that we think about most of the time. That is where proper goal setting comes in. Goal Setting allows us to internalize those things that we say we want and create the desire and motivation to achieve them.

This book is one of the first self improvement books I studied. Developing a Major Definite Purpose, having a clearly defined, well developed set of goals, will help us focus our energies and maximize our personal power.

Napoleon Hill called it our Magnificent Obsession! That being the case, I can say with absolute certainty that it is extremely important to manage our focus and develop laser sharp clarity on the goals that we really want! I am going to repeat the success quote above again because it is that important:

Many people fail in life, not for lack of ability or brains, or even courage, but simply because they have never organized their energies around a goal. – Elbert Hubbard

Goal Setting, developing the ability to absolutely clarify what we truly want out of our life, is perhaps the most important skill to practice of all the personal development skills combined!

The key to successful goal setting is your ability to motivate yourself and stay motivated until you have achieved your goals. ==>

As Tony Robbins states, “Success leaves clues.”

We do not have to re-invent the wheel. There are plenty of awesome examples that successful people have left behind for us to pick up on. We need only to research what works and start there. We want to discover how others achieved their goals and use their success strategies.

We can set goals that move us to action, and then make those actions power habits by repeating them over and over.

Creating the power habits that support our desires and goals instead of weakening them, makes good sense does it not? We all deserve to live happy, fun, passionate, activity filled lives. Every single one of us.

So let’s live large, contribute much, and have fun. I for one, am going for it!

In order to accomplish more than you ever have before, you must do more than you have ever done before.” -Mac Anderson

goals on track for achievers

Here is a list of 5 steps that resonate with Brian Tracy’s goal setting and achievement approach.

  1. Clarity is King: Begin by clearly defining what success looks like for you. Set SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound) goals. Do you want to increase your income? How much and by when? Or maybe you want to learn a new skill or language. By when do you want to achieve fluency? Clearly defined goals give you a specific path to follow and they make your success measurable.

  2. Write Them Down: It’s one thing to think about your goals, it’s another to put them in writing. This simple act of writing down your goals creates a contract with yourself. It serves as a powerful reminder of your commitments and it’s a tool you can use to visualize your success. Remember, out of sight, out of mind, so make sure your written goals are somewhere you can see them daily.

  3. Develop an Action Plan: This is the bridge between your current situation and your defined success. Break down your goals into smaller, manageable steps and tasks. Identify the resources you’ll need, the challenges you might face, and plan for them. Each of these smaller steps is an opportunity for a mini-celebration when completed, keeping your motivation high.

  4. Embrace Persistent Action: The best-laid plans mean nothing without action. Remember, a little progress each day adds up to big results. Consistency and persistence are key. You may experience setbacks along the way, but it’s important to keep going. Brian Tracy often says, “You only fail when you stop trying.”

  5. Regularly Review and Adjust: Don’t set your goals and forget about them. Make a habit of reviewing them regularly. This allows you to track your progress, celebrate your successes, and adjust your strategies as needed. Maybe you’re progressing faster than you thought, or perhaps you’ve encountered unexpected obstacles. Either way, regular review ensures you stay on track towards your desired success.

In summary, these 5 simple goal setting steps embody Brian Tracy’s wisdom on goal setting and achievement. Remember, every journey begins with a single step. Start your journey to success today by defining your goals, putting them in writing, developing a plan, taking persistent action, and adjusting as necessary.

You have within you everything you need to achieve any goal you set for yourself. Believe in yourself, and start moving towards your dreams today. Go for it!
