Mark Twain

"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."

Pitfalls to Achieving Goals

  1. Failure to establish clear goals in the first place;
  2. failure to divide goals into manageable units - bite sized pieces;
  3. procrastination keeps you from taking decisive action;
  4. fear of failure;
  5. lack of self-confidence; and
  6. lack of self-discipline.

You are the one who must bring about the results and outcomes you desire in life. Before you can do it successfully, you need to have a clear mental picture of your deepest desire - fame, fortune or happiness are vague concepts. Use your imagination and get specific.

What do you need to do every day to bring yourself closer to your ideal lifestyle? How can you be engaged and excited about your activities and have them generate value to you and your community?
