Have you set written goals in all areas of your life for achieving greater Success?
You may have heard or read stories of many successful people. What is one thing common that these people have? They know what they want out of life. They know where they are and where they want to go. They have their goals clearly defined.
Success never comes by any accident; you cannot buy it; you cannot inherit it. Success then depends only on putting in practice, a habit of setting and realizing goals. Goal setting process is a very powerful tool to improve degree of success.
If life is considered journey then goals are road maps. Only when your goals are clearly defined and acted upon, you can move towards your destination. A good road map can guide you for reaching your destination.
Having a road map does not mean that there will be no road blocks while you travel the path; the map only helps you to find alternatives to continue the journey of success.
Similarly your goals provide you with a sense of direction. Goals keep you focused on the most important activity and create a force of attraction that pulls you towards success. By setting goals you can travel your journey from dream to realization with sense of fulfillment.
