The Power of Goals

People with goals succeed because they know where they’re going.
Earl Nightingale

A goal gives you confidence – it turns the meek to bold.
Don Decker

The man with average mentality, but with control, a definite goal and a clear conception of how it can be gained and, above all, with the power of application and labor, wins in the end.
William Howard Taft

Without goals, and plans to reach them, you are like a ship that has set sail with no destination.
Fitzhugh Dodson

The overarching goal is important for its motivational properties. Most people need to believe in something that is larger than their day-to-day, often mundane, tasks. They are more likely to become committed to making things happen right if they believe in the significance of the unit’s goal.
David Bradford and Allan Cohen

The Power of Courage

Fortune favors the bold.
Virgil

We make way for the man who boldly pushes past us.
Christian Bovée

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
Johann von Goethe

There’s been many a time when boldness helped me to go on trying to win, even when common sense told me I had no chance.
Arnold Palmer

Great Decisions

When you cannot make up your mind between two evenly balanced courses of action, choose the bolder.
W.J. Slim

Wherever you see a successful business, someone once made a courageous decision.
Peter Drucker

Soon after a hard decision, something inevitably occurs to cast doubt. Holding steady against that doubt usually proves the decision.
R.I. Fitzhenry

Since wisdom is God’s specialty, it’s important that we seek it prior to every major decision.
Charles Swindoll

One of the common misconceptions regarding great leaders is that they are instantaneous decision makers. In fact, it is often a mistake to charge into action as soon as you finish gathering information. Take the time to reflect and test the validity of what you have heard. Deliberative, thoughtful action is a mark of wisdom.
Blythe McGarvie

When Bad Things Happen

You can overcome anything. It takes having an obstacle to learn and grow.
Orlando Bloom

It has been my philosophy of life that difficulties vanish when faced boldly.
Isaac Asimov

Greatness comes not when things always go good for you, but the greatness comes when you are really tested, when you take some knocks, some disappointments, when sadness comes. Because only if you have been in the deepest valleys can you ever know how magnificent it is to be on the highest mountain.
Richard Nixon

Every failure, obstacle or hardship is an opportunity in disguise. Success in many cases is failure turned inside out.
Mary Kay Ash

The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.
M. Scott Peck
