Successful people set goals.
Notice that I didn't say that they hit them, but they set goals. It's the first thing that they think about when they wake up and it's the last thing that they think about when going to bed.
They aren't immune to hard times. In fact, many of them don't hit their goals because they take a daily action, building up stamina with consistent efforts, slowly making progress towards those goals until one day they achieve them.
Whether your goal is to lose 15lbs or 75lbs, whether you want to increase your income by 10% or 100%, if you want to spend more time with your family, be a better wife, be a better mom, be a better daughter, be a better friend, be a better you, be better at time management, be better with family finances, whatever it is that you want to be better at... it starts with a goal.
Setting goals, writing them down and actively working towards those goals... daily and consistently, you will become the person you strive to be.
What's one goal that you are working on? Or maybe you are starting off and declaring and goal today...what is it?
