In 1953 at Yale University
they did a study among graduating seniors and asked them several questions, one of which was, "Have you set clear specific
goals for your life and have you written them down and formulated plans to achieve them?" Twenty years later, they found that
the 3% who had written down their goals were worth more in financial terms than the entire other 97% put together!
a goal is written down on paper, it is not a
goal, but simply a wish. -Brian Tracy
Happiness is the progressive
realization of a
worthy goal or ideal. -Earl Nightingale
The great thing in this world is not so much where we
are, but in what direction we are moving. -Oliver Wendell Holmes
Make your life a mission - not an intermission. -Arnold
Aim at the sun, and you may not reach it, but your arrow will fly higher than if aimed at an object on a level
with yourself. -Joe Hawes
Your goal the sky.
Your aim the star.
