Goal Setting - by Dr. Denis Waitley

Dr. Denis Waitley

The reason so few people reach their goals, is that they were never realized in the first place. They see goal setting as rigid and too structured. Setting goals are actually the most creative approach to life. It is like taking your life as a lump of clay in the hand of the master potter’s on the wheels and then make it into a thing of beauty and utility. It gives great pleasure to you the artist and to others. To turn the wheel of life and not to fashion something, is to send the clay spinning and spattering in every direction A goal also can be likened to a ships rudder though seemingly small and rigid, the rudder can turn the ship into any direction the captain chooses.

Once you set a goal, you can change it, adjust it, modify it and alter it. You are the Captain. Now remember a dream is what you would like to be and hold. But a goal is what you intend it to be and to make happen.  Many people dream of an ideal life. They even go so far as to dream about their future with great many concrete details. They can’t really imagine however, turning that dream into reality with that specific game plan.  Nevertheless, goals are intentional, they are rooted in commitment, and to do whatever it takes to make the dreams come true. each day and night to be guided in your living, as these words, help you with your goal achievement.
