When we set a goal, we set a determination; and a sense of pride is fulfilled when we are successful.  Having goals gives us direction and a place to focus, and even further – a purpose!  ~Coach Smith

“If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride – and never quit, you’ll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards.”      ~Paul Bryant


This quote belongs to Michael Korda (born 8 October 1933).

Setting progressively challenging goals is a way to keep moving forward in your life. What are the requirements of an achievable goal? First, a goal should be in harmony with your ideals. Second, a good goal reflects your intention or purpose at hand. Self-improvement occurs at the point in which your ideals, purpose, and goals come together. Stay on course once you set your goals in life.

Take pride in knowing that you’ve set goals and you’re working towards a purpose!


“You have the power within your reach to create what you desire.”
