Achieving Success Through Goals

Why Having Goals Is Important

“The trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never score.”


– Bill Copeland

It may seem obvious that having goals in life is important, but many people go through life without having any. Ask people what their goals are and you’re likely to hear generic responses like, “I want to be healthy” or “I want to be successful”.

These are not true goals. They are wishes and desires. These people wander through life trying to lose weight or get rich and never achieve either because they have no clear direction or definition of what these “goals” are.

What are True Goals?

“People with goals succeed because they know where they’re going.”


– Earl Nightingale

True goals are a roadmap. They can be a roadmap to success, a roadmap to better health, or a roadmap to anything else you want to achieve. They are clear and specific and set you on a conscious path towards a life of your creation. And by taking this kind of control of your life, you gain confidence and a sense of clarity and focus which motivates you to achieve those goals.

Goals help you to live your best life and become the best version of yourself.

One other thing. True goals are written down.
