The following are thoughts on goals from people who have achieved theirs:

 

The game has its ups and downs, but you can never lose focus of your individual goals and you can’t let yourself be beat because of lack of effort.

~Michael Jordan

 

A winner is someone who recognized his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skills to accomplish his goals.

~Larry Bird

 

Crystallize your goals. Make a plan for achieving them and set yourself a deadline. Then, with supreme confidence, determination and disregard for obstacles and other people’s criticisms, carry out your plan.

~Paul J. Meyer

 

One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals. And so when I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don’t invest any energy in them, because I know who I am.

~Michelle Obama

 

If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.

~Yogi Berra

 

Every achievement, big or small, begins in your mind.

~Mary Kay Ash
