Goal Quotations

Objectives are not fate; they are direction. They are not commands; they are commitments. They do not determine the future; they are means to mobilize the resources & energies of the business for the making of the future.
Peter F. Drucker (1909-, American-Austrian management consultant)


It is necessary to try to surpass one’s self always; this occupation ought to last as long as life.
Queen Christina (1626-1689, Swedish queen)


One day Alice came to a fork in the road & saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. Which road do I take? She asked. Where do you want to go? Was his response. I don’t know, Alice answered. Then, said the cat, it doesn’t matter.
Lewis Carroll (1832-1898, British writer, mathematician)


A windmill is eternally at work to accomplish one end, although it shifts with every variation of the weathercock, & assumes ten different positions in a day.
Charles Caleb Colton (1780-1832, British sportsman writer)


If I’ve got correct goals, & if I keep pursuing them the best way I know how, everything else falls into line. If I do the right thing right, I’m going to succeed.
Dan Dierdorf (1949 – American football player)


Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, & upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.
Stephen A. Brennan (American basketball coach)


The person with a fixed goal, a clear picture of his desire, or an ideal always before him, causes it, through repetition, to be buried deeply in his subconscious mind & is thus enabled, thanks to its generative & sustaining power, to realize his goal in a minimum of time & with a minimum of physical effort. Just pursue the thought unceasingly. Step by step you will achieve realization, for all your faculties & powers become directed to that end.
Claude M. Bristol (1891-1951, American author of “The Magic Of Believing”)


In this life we get only those things for which we hunt, for which we strive, & for which we are willing to sacrifice.
George M. Adams (1878-1962, American author)


Put your goals in writing. If you can’t put it on a sheet of paper, you probably can’t do what it takes to achieve the goal.
Author Unknown


Those who commence deliberately. They plod on. They stick to it. They persevere & finally reap their rewards.
Charles E. Popplestone


Goals provide the energy source that powers our lives. One of the best ways we can get the most from the energy we have is to focus it. That is what goals can do for us; concentrate our energy.

You may not accomplish every goal you set — no one does — but what really matters is having goals & going after them wholeheartedly.
Les Brown (1945-, American speaker, author, trainer, motivator)


You don’t have to be a fantastic hero to do certain things — to compete. You can be just an ordinary chap, sufficiently motivated to reach challenging goals.
Sir Edmund Hillary (1919-, New Zealand mountaineer)


It is a very high goal which, with our weak powers, we can reach only very inadequately, but which gives a sure foundation to our aspirations & valuations.
Albert Einstein (1879-1955, German-born American physicist)
