The Power of Purpose

The greatest use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.
William James

Many people flounder about in life because they have no purpose. Before it is possible to achieve anything, an objective must be set.
George Halas

People want to be on a team. They want to be part of something bigger than themselves. They want to be in a situation where they feel they are doing something for the greater good.
Mike Krzyzewski

Find a purpose in life so big that it will challenge every capacity to be at its best.
David McKay

I believe that everything in life has a purpose. And our lives themselves have a purpose. Organizing the details of our lives brings that purpose into sharper focus. The sharper it is, the less likely we will lose sight of it after a severe setback.
George Allen

Pursuing Your Goals

We tend to move to our comfort zones. To reach a goal, we must expand a comfort zone.
James Newman

If you’re not making many errors, you might ask yourself, “How many opportunities am I missing by not being more aggressive?”
Roger von Oech

Goal: An aim or objective, the end toward which effort is directed.
Resolution: The quality of not allowing difficulties or opposition to affect one’s purpose.

We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal and then leap in the dark to our success.
Henry David Thoreau

Pursuing your goals is much like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. While you ultimately seek the final outcome, you still have to work piece by piece. Since you will spend most of your time trying to make progress, you must enjoy what you are doing in order to finish. Take joy from the process, and use the small successes to fuel your continued efforts.
Dr. David Niven

The Power of Purpose

Definiteness of purpose develops confidence in your own integrity and character, which attracts favorable attention from others and inspires their cooperation.
Napoleon Hill

The man who succeeds above his fellow man is one who early in life clearly discerns his objective, and toward that objective he directs all of his powers.
Vince Lombardi

Success is waking up in the morning and bounding out of bed because there’s something out there that you love to do, that you believe in, that you’re good at – something that’s bigger than you are, and you can hardly wait to get at it again.
Whit Hobbs

The happiest excitement in life is to be convinced that one is fighting for all one is worth on behalf of some clearly seen and deeply felt good.
Ruth Benedict

Talent is highly overrated. On any given day, you’ll probably meet well over a dozen people whose talents exceed your own. Of greater worth is a sense of purpose. That’s what gives you power. The paychecks of innumerable talented people are signed by people of purpose.
John Maxwell

The Power of Goals

Have a clear cut objective, recognize every resistance that will prevent you from reaching your objective and have a plan of action that will overcome the resistance.
Tom Landry

Chance can allow you to accomplish a goal every once in a while, but consistent achievement happens only if you love what you are doing.
Bert Conner

Every year update your budget and evaluate your goals. Look back at the previous year and determine if you’re still on track with your goals. If you will make this a priority, it will be the best investment of time you’ll ever make.
Larry Burkett

Establishing goals is all right if you don’t let them deprive you of interesting detours.
Doug Larson

When you achieve a goal (even if it’s a short-term one) reward yourself.
Mary Lou Retton
