GOAL AND VISION

    Goal is something that you hope to achieve soonest while having vision is to plan the future with great imagination and intelligence.
Your vision statement defines what u want and where you re going. In setting ur goals make up a dream list. A dream list is a list of everything u would like to be, have or do sometime in ur life. Zig Ziglar says "written goals transform you from a wandering generality into a meaningful specific" Most people are hopelessly confused about their goals and vision but when u become absolutely clear about them for yourself, your ability to achieve them increases dramatically.
      To succeed, u need to name ur goals, know d price & pay the price in full without bargaining.
When u re absolutely clear about what u want, u can then think about ur goals most of d time. And the more u think about them, the faster they will materialize in ur life.
Have you ever known a person who didn't have a clue concerning what he/she wanted in life, yet highly successful? I haven't either. We all need something worthwhile to aim for. A dream/vision will provide us with that.
Every opportunity we meet, every resource we discover, every talent we develop becomes a part of our potential to grow toward that dream. The greater the dream, the greater the potential.
E. Paul Hovey said. "A blind man's world is bounded by the limits of his touch; an ignorant man's world is bounded by the limits of his knowledge but a great man's world is bounded by the limits of his vision/dream."
      Every living man is a potential great man, so we are all bounded by the limit of our vision. The greater our vision, the greater we'll be, because we'll definite accomplish that vision eventually.
You will not do incredible things without an incredible dream.
The more u think about ur major definite goals and how to achieve it, the more u attract people, opportunities, ideas & resources that will help u to move more rapidly towards achieving ur goals.
Attention is the key to life. Wherever ur attention goes, ur life goes as well. Your goals & vision are ur attentions.
Don't build castles in d air. Your goals must be both believable and achievable. Make goals that are just out of reach but they should not be out of sight. Your major definite goals should not be so big or so ridiculous that it is completely unattainable.
Everyone wants to be successful. The only question is; are u ready to pay the price of becoming a success? If ur answer is yes, then there is nothing that can stop u.
     There is difference between those who dream and those who make their dreams come true. Those that make their dreams come true are those that are ready to pay the price for it without bargaining
You av to check urself & determine whether there are time consuming activities in ur life that won't allow u to achieve ur goals & vision. U av to reduce the time spent on them or eliminate them completely.
A person who has a dream knows what he/she should give up or stop doing in order to go up.
He is able to measure everything he does according to whether or not it contributes to the dreams, concentrating his attention on the things that bring him closer to it & giving less attention to everything that doesn't.
Even the bible says "where there is no vision the people perish"
U also av to set deadlines for ur goals as well because a goal without a deadline is merely a discussion. If u didn't achieve ur goal at d written deadline, then u set another one.
Its not d end of d world that u didn't achieve ur goal in d set deadline. Because successful people fail far more often than unsuccessful people. Successful people try more things, fall, pick themselves up and try again over & over again before they finally win. If u succeed the first time u try, the dream was a small one. D greatest glory in living lies not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.
Unsuccessful people try a few things, that's if they try at all & very soon quit & go back to what they were doing before.
Successful people look at failure as part of price they need to pay before being successful.
Failure is not failure unless you don't learn from it.
Success is failure turned inside out, the silver tint of d cloud of doubt and u never can tell how close u re, it may be near when it seems afar. So stick to d fight when u re hardest hit. Its when things seem worse that u mustn't QUIT.
     So dare to dream and act on that dream. A dream will provide you with a reason to go, a path to follow and a target to it. Do it inspite of problems, circumtances and obtacles. History is filled with men and women who faced adversity and achieved success inspite of it.
Don't allow ur comfort zone to disable u from setting more goals for urself. Many people become complacent with their current situation. They become so comfortable in a particular job or at a particular salary that they become reluctant to make any change at all, even for better.
Don't get complacent but always engage in constructive discontent because no matter the position you find yourself, there's always the higher level to go
