Experts Teach Why You Need Goals in Life
“People who fail to plan are planning to fail.”
Everyone dreams of a better future – a better lifestyle, bigger vacations and more importantly, a greater level of fulfilment. But why is it that only 1% of people hoard 99% of the wealth? What is their secret? They understand that they need goals in life to succeed.
In this post, you learn why you need goals in life directly from the legends – Tony Robbins, Bob Proctor, Jim Rohn, Brian Tracy, Zig Ziglar and the great actor, Denzel Washington.
From invisible to visible
Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.
Goals have power
Many times, people tell me things like “Well Tony, you are successful in your life because after all, you’re so motivated. I’m just lazy.” I just tell people you’re not lazy, you have impotent goals. What we wanna do is get some goals that will drive you. Some goals that’ve got some power behind them. And the way to do that is to realize that right now you are about to create a real future, you’re not writing down words on a page.
Realize your vision
Your purpose explains what you are doing with your life. Your vision explains how you are living your purpose. Your goals enable you to realize your vision.
Goals should scare you
Set a goal to achieve something that is so big, so exhilarating that it excites you and scares you at the same time.If you do not get the chills when you set your goal you’re not setting big enough goals.
Do it right
Most people are not going after what they want. Even some of the most serious goal seekers and goal setters, they’re going after what they think they can get.
Dreams into goals
Long-range goals are your dreams. You’ve got to keep dreaming. There is a Bible phrase that says, “Without dreams and visions, people perish.” You’ve got something to go for that inspires the heart and the soul. Don’t lose your dreams, for yourself, for your future, the dreams of love and enterprise, travel, doing things, becoming something unique on your journey here. Short-range goals are for the immediate future. We call these the confidence builders.

Know Your Exact Goals
At the age of 20, I had an incredible epiphany, that everything that was going to happen in my life is up to me. It doesn’t matter where you were, all that really matters is where you’re going. The starting point of success is to decide exactly what you want in life, EXACTLY what you want. Do it this way, if you could wave a magic wand and have anything you want in life, what would it be?
Goals Break Old Limits
When you set goals, something inside of you starts saying, “Let’s go, let’s go”, and ceilings start to move up.
Can’t Hit a Target?
Famous archer, Howard Hill won all of the 267 archery contests he entered. He could hit a bullseye at 50 feet, then split first arrow with the second. Would t be possible for you to shoot better than him? Yes, if he were blindfolded! How can you hit a target you can’t see? Even worse, how can you hit a target you don’t even have!? You need to have goals in life.
Plan Your Life
You need a plan to build a house. To build a life, it is even more important to have a plan or goal.
Goals Are Necessary
True desire in the heart for anything good is God’s proof to you, sent beforehand, that it’s yours already. You already have it. Understand this also, dreams without goals remain dreams, and ultimately fuel disappoint. Goals on the road to achievement cannot be achieved without discipline and consistency.
