Success and Goals: Great Quotes in Images

Today is just a collection of quotes on success and goals. I spent several hours this morning writing and editing a new workbook that will be available in January on personal productivity. I went surfing the internet for some good ideas. I hope you are inspired and motivated as I am by these thoughts.

How to Achieve Your Goals

Eight Steps to Getting the Results You Want

Define it.
Know exactly what you want to get. Don't settle for just being active. Activity for a purpose. Activity that gets you where you want to go. So define where you want to go. Not just in theory. Not just in general. But specific, concrete, measurable.

Want it.
How much you really desire your goals. Are they just nice things you would like to have? Or are you passionate about those things. They MUST come to pass. You cannot imagine your work and your life without those things coming to pass. How much do you want it? How strong is your desire?

Second - failure is not the problem. It is your attitude toward failure. Too many people are afraid to fail, beat themselves up when they fail, and dont' know what to do when they fail. The good news is that every failure can be a learning opportunity.

So Just How Big Are We Talking?
Big is one thing. Excessive is something else.
Audacious can be inspiring. Ridiculous is discouraging.

So just how big are we talking? How audacious? How beautiful? How challenging? How inspiring? How demanding? How much hard work is appropriate? 

And how do I know what is both realistic and also beyond what I can do on my own? How do I navigate living by confidence in knowing what I can do with some hard work and living by faith, trusting God to do more than what I can get done with my strength?
