It's not an accident that musicians become musicians and engineers become engineers: it's what they're born to do. If you can tune into your purpose and really align with it, setting goals so that your vision is an expression of that purpose, then life flows much more easily.
Learn from the past, set vivid, detailed goals for the future, and live in the only moment of time over which you have any control: now.
I live off a motto that says, 'yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery'. I have goals and agendas. Where ever I'll be tomorrow, that's where I'll be.
The American Dream is one of success, home ownership, college education for one's children, and have a secure job to provide these and other goals.
If you're bored with life - you don't get up every morning with a burning desire to do things - you don't have enough goals.
I have short goals - to get better every day, to help my teammates every day - but my only ultimate goal is to win an NBA championship. It's all that matters. I dream about it. I dream about it all the time, how it would look, how it would feel. It would be so amazing.
One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals. And so when I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don't invest any energy in them, because I know who I am.
Crystallize your goals. Make a plan for achieving them and set yourself a deadline. Then, with supreme confidence, determination and disregard for obstacles and other people's criticisms, carry out your plan.
Paul J. Meyer
Stop setting goals. Goals are pure fantasy unless you have a specific plan to achieve them.
You've got to know what you want. This is central to acting on your intentions. When you know what you want, you realize that all there is left then is time management. You'll manage your time to achieve your goals because you clearly know what you're trying to achieve in your life.
Life can be pulled by goals just as surely as it can be pushed by drives.
Viktor E. Frankl
Remember, you and you alone are responsible for maintaining your energy. Give up blaming, complaining and excuse making, and keep taking action in the direction of your goals - however mundane or lofty they may be.
You need to overcome the tug of people against you as you reach for high goals.
George S. Patton

We live in a culture that relishes tearing others down. It's ultimately more fulfilling, though, to help people reach their goals. Instead of feeling jealous, remember: If God did it for them, He can do it for you.
You must be passionate, you must dedicate yourself, and you must be relentless in the pursuit of your goals. If you do, you will be successful.
Many badly needed goals, like fusion and cancer cure, would be achieved much sooner if we invested more.
One way to keep momentum going is to have constantly greater goals.
No matter how many goals you have achieved, you must set your sights on a higher one.
People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals - that is, goals that do not inspire them.
Life takes on meaning when you become motivated, set goals and charge after them in an unstoppable manner.
Every season is a new challenge to me, and I always set out to improve in terms of games, goals, assists.
I hope the millions of people I've touched have the optimism and desire to share their goals and hard work and persevere with a positive attitude.
Do more than is required. What is the distance between someone who achieves their goals consistently and those who spend their lives and careers merely following? The extra mile.
