It is when things go hardest, when life becomes most trying, that there is greatest need for having a fixed goal. When few comforts come from without, it is all the more necessary to have a fount to draw on from within.
— B.C. Forbes
If you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you. If you go to work on your plan, your plan will go to work on you. Whatever good things we build end up building us.
— Jim Rohn
Having an exciting destination is like setting a needle in your compass. From then on, the compass knows only one point – its ideal. And it will faithfully guide you there through the darkest nights and fiercest storms.
— Daniel Boone
Dreams whet your appetite, but goals make you hungry.
— Josie Bisset
The key to activating the laws of success is for you to become perfectly clear about what it is you want and exactly what it will look like when you have achieved it. Just as you wouldn’t attempt to build a house without a plan, you wouldn’t think of building a great life without a clear list of the goals you wish to attain and a written plan of action for the attainment of those goals.
— Brian Tracy
