Managing Your Success

Goal Setting

Why Set Goals?

When you look at a successful person, you will most likely be able to see that they reached that level by creating and striving for personally-defined goals.  Goals that are personally relevant and meaningful, that have a more profound meaning to you tend to be more compelling. You know your goal is powerful when the thought of achieving it excites you and reaching it is fulfilling and rewarding.  Your goal is a dream with a commitment attached.

Goals help you to:

  1. Create a long-term vision.
  2. Maintain motivation. 
  3. Sustain focus.
  4. Maximize time management.
  5. Optimize resources.
  6. Increase self-esteem and confidence.
