Goals help you overcome short-term problems.
— Hannah More
The mere act of defining a goal puts you that much closer to achieving it.
— Ron Blue
When you know you are working toward a goal, when there is a challenge to be met, you are more likely to rise to the occasion and perform at your best than when there is no deadline to be met or no task to be completed.
— Richard Chang
Happiness, wealth and success are byproducts of goal setting; they cannot be the goal themselves.
— John Condry
The person with a fixed goal, a clear picture of his desire, or an ideal always before him, causes it, through repetition, to be buried deeply in his subconscious mind and is thus enabled, thanks to its generative and sustaining power, to realize his goal in a minimum of time and with a minimum of physical effort. Just pursue the thought unceasingly. Step by step you will achieve realization, for all your faculties and powers become directed to that end.
— Claude Bristol
