Motivational Quotations – Goal Setting
Before you can begin to create the future that you can be proud of, you must first decide EXACTLY what you want that future to be like. Until you do this, you are flying blind, five years from now you are going to arrive, my question is WHERE??????????
Apply your willpower consistently until “this way of life” becomes habitual. The amazing results that will flow from this practice will exceed even your wildest dreams.
Your thoughts, words and actions today, determine EXACTLY what your future will be like. Consistent patterns of thought and your daily deeds most certainly create your future. Practice the success habit of only thinking thoughts and performing actions that are in line your vision of the future and you will create EXACTLY the future you desire.
It is a natural tendency for us to overestimate what we can achieve in one year and significantly UNDERESTIMATE all we can achieve in a decade. Take a longer term view of your life and goals and you will astound yourself with your results
The path to living your dreams is often filled with challenges, when you commit completely to living your goals, you will have the commitment to do what it takes to overcome any challenges that may come your way. Until you stop telling yourself that you only WANT something to manifest in your life and finally decide that what you want is something you M U S T have, your dreams will elude you.
Forget about goal setting and change your focus to GOAL ACHIEVEMENT. Change your belief around your goals and dreams and the results you enjoy will change. When you move your thinking away from only setting goals, to living your goals in the present and creating all the emotions you would feel when you achieve all your goals. The power you unleash both within yourself and the universe is immense.
Delays in the realizing of your dreams are just that, DELAYS. When you understand that you are not being denied your dreams that things will arrive when the time is right. All your dreams will be yours, if you continue to show tenacity in your will and consistency in your belief.
Through commitment and complete clarity you get to predict your future one moment at a time
Habits = routine Beliefs = values Actions = deeds
If you boarded a plane and the pilot that came over the intercom was incoherent and had no idea what the flight number was, no idea where he was going or even if there was enough fuel on board the plane, would you stay on board? Examine the person piloting your life right now, how coherent is your pilot, does he/she have a plan, should you be on-board?
When you get a crystal clear picture of your future and focus on realizing exactly that, by applying inspired activity to everything you do, you get to predict exactly how your future will be, TODAY
To successfully fulfill all your dreams, requires consistent and persistent effort. If you can create an atmosphere of fun, excitement and real deep passion around this process, the work that will be required, will be easy and you will eagerly participate in the process.
Manifestation should be called Manifestaction 🙂
When on the path to achieving your goals you will need to have consistent and regular checks, to ensure that you remain on track. By monitoring your progress on a regular and frequent basis, you will only need to make small corrections to keep you on your path. It is imperative to have a set of predetermined ways to measure and monitor your progress
To implement your plan and take the necessary inspired action to achieve your goals, you will need a system to manage your time and energy. Your time management system must be effective and allow you to allocate time to important issues, whilst ignoring time wasting things, which do not serve your purpose or fit in with your vision.
Goals are merely the “what” you will accomplish and action plans are the “how” you will accomplish each goal. Without a clearly defined True Life Purpose to serve as the compass that guides your goals and actions, you will continue to blunder aimlessly through life
You can achieve anything, when you adapt these three words as your personal adage “I WILL, UNTIL”. Anything is possible and extremely probable, if you tenaciously chip away, applying inspired action every day until you have achieved all of your goals.
Plan for the future you desire, but be certain that you are living in the NOW. If you live in the future you never actually get to live at all. You seem to spend all your time preparing to live. Planning for the future is crucial, but never allow this process to rob you of the happiness that is available right NOW.
Let your mind out for a walk today and explore the question “what do I really want in my future?” When you gain clarity around this issue, you become a creator of your circumstances. Continue to blunder, blindly through life and you will remain a creature of your circumstances.
History only serves as a platform for learning. Learn the lessons it has to offer & then use this information to create your perfect future. To charter the course you are capable of following you need to turn your dreams into goals. Goals are dreams that you have identified, clarified, time defined, written down and committed yourself to make part of your future reality.
Your nebulous dreams that you neglect to refine, can never become concrete goals that you can actively pursue. They just remain daydreams beyond the range of your true reality and can never materialize with any real substance.
For you to finally begin to manifest your true aspirations, you must clearly articulate these aims to both yourself and the universe. When you clarify your aspirations, they take on a new substance and what was a mere wish, before becomes real and achievable.
Focus on achieving the essence of each of your goals and be open to regularly change individual particulars if necessary. Letting go of or modifying plans that are not working, is an integral part of the goal achievement process. Consistently check and revise your plans and have the courage to discard any that may be weighing you down.
Make the choice today to change your life from tolerable to completely fulfilling, by consistently allowing yourself to express your intelligence and creativity. This is achieved by taking stock of your strengths, passions, beliefs, values, vision and then aligning these with your goals. Finally convert your goals into projects and plans, which you must action every day
I believe in the adage of READY, FIRE, AIM. READY Invest time and effort into preparing to achieve your goals, FIRE, begin to take action, do not paralyze yourself with over preparing, AIM, assess your progress, regularly and take corrective action where necessary.
When you stop trying to IMPRESS people and you begin to EXPRESS your abilities through your skills and knowledge, EXPRESS your desire to succeed by creating a functional plan for success, EXPRESS your commitment by applying daily inspired action, you will begin to see meaningful and sustainable progress toward achieving your goals.
It is a natural tendency for us to overestimate what we can achieve in one year and significantly UNDERESTIMATE all we can achieve in a decade. Andrew will guide you, to take a longer term view of your life and goals. When you follow this simple strategy you will astound yourself with the results you will enjoy.
Your thoughts, words and actions today, determine EXACTLY what your future will be like. Consistent patterns of thought and your daily deeds most certainly create your future. Practice the success habit of only thinking thoughts and performing actions that are in line your True Life Purpose and your vision of the future. This very simple yet effective daily practice will help you create the EXACT the future you desire.
When you understand exactly “WHY” you must achieve, become, have or do something. The “WHY” will become the fire that glows or explodes in your belly and will inspire and drive you to achieve your goals. The “WHY” is what will get you to make the changes in your life, you need to succeed, even the uncomfortable ones. The “WHY” is the inspiration behind your goals that will make it all happen for you?
Let your mind out for a walk today and allow it to wander around, unfettered by your beliefs and perceptions. What is it that you really want your future to look and be like? Examine your choice, is it in line with your vision and is it what you want or what others think you want. When you pursue other people dreams they will always elude you. Discover your own dreams and incredible things will begin to manifest.
When your memories are more important to you than your dreams, you are already dead.
You will enrich your life and everyone you touch, when you make discovering all the goodness that surrounds you a top priority, you work to discover the opportunity that is hidden in every challenge and you strive to see and reveal the best in everyone
Never permit your memories to become more important than your dreams.
Allow your mind out for a walk today and stride confidently into your future, for that is where you will discover your dreams. As you walk through your future pack a suitcase with your dreams and on your return, fastidiously unpack them and begin to take steps to realize all of them.
Live in the moment, never allowing your dreams to run ahead of you, for the person that only looks outside of themselves is simply a dreamer, those that learn to look into their heart, awaken their belief in their ability and they unleash their unlimited potential. Recording and time defining your dreams is simply the start, realizing them is the art
When you learn to approach every activity in your life from a position of high energy, with superior levels of trust, optimism, appreciation, reverence, joy and love, you open the door that allows your dreams a chance to escape the confines of your inner doubt and sees them soar into the realm of your reality
Be aware of the obstacles that you are putting in your path, that are preventing you from realizing your potential. Investing time to identify and eliminate these is incredibly enlightening and will allow you make incredible inroads toward realizing all your goals
Dreams are merely your future reality waiting to be set free and your expectations are the fuel that provides the momentum and inspiration for you to create the meaningful dreams that will make a difference to you and the world.
Unless you stop expending your energy on the small stuff, you will never have room to make the really important things happen for you. Discover that one thing that will help you make a meteoric stride toward your success and then apply consistent and persistent effort daily until it is done.
We are almost halfway through the year, it is time to take inventory of all the personal commitments you have made to yourself & review your progress. Are you satisfied with what you see? If not, NOW!! is the time to make the necessary changes & apply specific action to meet these commitments. Are you going to allow this to be just another year where nothing special happens or are you going to make these last seven months count for something?
Re-awaken those dreams, desires and ambitions that you may have shelved a long time ago, due to the fear that doing so would move you out of your comfort zone. Change the trajectory of your life, and unlock your dormant potential. Declare new choices, establish new behaviors, build new skills and begin to take bold new actions to begin materializing your dreams.

You can choose success or you can simply just slip back into the herd once again, no one will even notice. The choices you make, actions you take, thoughts you think and words you speak shape your future. Is your choice of activities, thoughts and words in line with your vision of the future?
If you want to preserve your goals and ensure that 2010 is the year you finally deliver on all your promises to yourself, make this the year of inspection, review and action. No matter how good your plans, intentions or goals may be, nothing meaningful can happen, until you start to measure your performance on a regular basis and take corrective action to keep yourself on the track of success.
Are you going to continue to allow regrets to replace your dreams? Decide today, how much life you are prepared to exchange for living your dreams, then simply pull the trigger, begin taking the inspired action necessary and you will see your dreams unfold before your eyes
The way to successfully achieve all your goals is to first identify the attributes you will need to develop to become the type of person that could support & sustain each of your goals & then go about the business of developing those attributes within yourself. When you do this your goals will seem to miraculously peel off the page of your goal journal & materialize in your life.
