Time to revisit my goals

It's time to revisit my goals. If you have never set goals for yourself, it is one of the most inspiring and life-affirming things that you can do and I highly recommend it. It is not easy, however. If you have never done it, I highly recommend listening to Brian Tracy's The Psychology of Achievement. EXTREMELY powerful stuff.

Goals must be realistic, specific and powerful. You must write them down. You must own them and set out a specific timeline by when they will be realized. Where do you see yourself in 10 years - 20 years - 50 years?

Start with where you want to be; who you want to be and then work back to plan out each and every step you will take to arrive there. Then: DO IT. Goals are nothing if action is not taken.

Development is a process. Mental, emotional, spiritual and physical growth takes place over time. You cannot expect to achieve your most difficult goals while taking the path of least resistance... Be ready to invest everything you have: time, money, emotions and willpower.

Are you ready to develop? You cannot develop others without first developing yourself. You cannot lead people where you have never been. You cannot help others if you first do not help yourself and prepare yourself for the hardships that will come with these trials and errors.

The quicker you fail, the quicker you will find success.

Just some thoughts.
