Goal Quotations

First, have a definite, clear practical ideal; a goal, an objective. Second, have the necessary means to achieve your ends; wisdom, money, materials, & methods. Third, adjust all your means to that end.
Aristotle (BC 384-322, Greek philosopher)


Write it down. Written goals have a way of transforming wishes into wants; cant’s into cans; dreams into plans; & plans into reality. Don’t just think it — ink it!
Author Unknown


If you have goals & procrastination you have nothing. If you have goals & you take action, you will have anything you want.
Thomas J. Vilord


The man who succeeds above his fellows is the one who early in life discerns his object & toward that object habitually directs his powers. Even genius itself is but fine observation strengthened by fixity of purpose.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton (1803-1873, British novelist, poet)


Unless you have some goals, I don’t think there’s any way to get above the pack. My vision was always well beyond what I had any reason to expect.
John Fuqua (1946-, Businessman, founder of Fuqua Industries)


Picture yourself in your mind’s eye as having already achieved this goal. See yourself doing the things you’ll be doing when you’ve reached your goal.
Earl Nightingale (1921-1989, American radio announcer, author, motivator, speaker)


The goal you set must be challenging. At the same time, it should be realistic & attainable, not impossible to reach. It should be challenging enough to make you stretch, but not so far that you break.
Rick Hansen (1957-, Canadian lecturer, author, founder of Man In Motion World Tour)


To will is to select a goal, determine a course of action that will bring one to that goal, & then hold to that action until the goal is reached. The key is action.
Michael Hanson


The most important thing you can do to achieve your goals is to make sure that as soon as you set them, you immediately begin to create momentum. The most important rules that I ever adopted to help me in achieving my goals were those I learned from a very successful man who taught me to first write down the goal, & then to never leave the site of setting a goal without first taking some form of positive action toward its attainment.
Anthony Robbins (1960-, American author, speaker, peak performance expert, coach)

You will now have a starting place & a destination, & you will be able to determine what it will cost you to get there. You will be going someplace.
H. Stanley Judd (American author)


A successful individual typically sets his next goal somewhat, but not too much above his last achievement. In this way he steadily raises his level of aspiration.
Kurt Lewin


I am tomorrow, or some future day, what I establish today. I am today what I established yesterday or some previous day.
Harvey Spencer Lewis (American author, “Mansions Of The Soul”)


We, whoever we are, must have a daily goal in our lives, no matter how small or great, to make that day mean something.
Michael J. McCarthy (1916-, American lawyer, businessman)


Before you begin a thing, remind yourself that difficulties & delays quite impossible to foresee are ahead…. You can only see one thing clearly & that is your goal. Form a mental vision of that & cling to it through thick & thin.
Kathleen Norris (1880-1966, American novelist)


We, whoever we are, must have a daily goal in our lives, no matter how small or great, to make that day mean something.
Maxwell Maltz (1944-, Canadian-born American plastic surgeon, author of “Psycho-Cybernetics”)


There is no sudden leap into the stratosphere. There is only advancing step by step, slowly & tortuously, up the pyramid towards your goals.
Ben Stein (1944-, American professor, writer)


If you want to reach a goal, you must see yourself reaching it in your own mind before you actually arrive at your goal.
Zig Ziglar (1926-, American sales trainer, author, motivational speaker)

To solve a problem or to reach a goal, you don’t need to know all the answers in advance. But you must have a clear idea of the problem or the goal you want to reach.
W. Clement Stone (1902-2002, American businessman, author, founder of Combined Insurance Companies)


If one were to take that goal out of its religious form & look merely at its purely human side, one might state it perhaps thus: free & responsible development of the individual, so that he may place his powers freely & gladly in the service of all mankind.
Albert Einstein (1879-1955, German-born American physicist)
