The Purpose Of Goals

"The purpose of goals is to focus our attention. The mind will not reach forward toward achievement until it has clear objectives. The magic begins when we set goals. It is then that the switch is turned on, the current begins to flow, and the power to accomplish becomes reality." (From The Best Of Success, compiled by Wynn Davis)

This statement is so so true, anyone who has ever set a goal, made a plan to achieve the goal, and taken the actions needed, will understand it.

Since we have been in this fantastic business, to be honest, most of the time we have been a wandering generality rather than a meaningful specific. But when we have set a goal, made the plan and followed it through, we have achieved our target. In September 2008 we were at 18% and made a plan to go Gold the following period, did we do it, yes we did, because we took the actions needed to achieve our goal and focused our minds on it totally for 4 weeks.

Just last period we set a goal to double our own personal retail from £800 to £1600, did we do it, yes we did, because again we made a plan and stuck to it.

Our goal for the current period is for £2000 of personal retail, will we do it, you bet we will, because we have the plan in place, and we are taking the required actions.

So if you are one of those people who poo poo goal setting, speak to your sponsor and set some goals, because it ain't gonna happen unless you make it happen, if you want what you dream about then go and get it.
