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.

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:
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. ==>FREE Ebook==> The Motivation Companion in this post, How To Get Motivated To Achieve 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!
