Setting Quotations

Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.
Tony Robbins

When you have expectations, you are setting yourself up for disappointment.
Ryan Reynolds

The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.

The discipline you learn and character you build from setting and achieving a goal can be more valuable than the achievement of the goal itself.
Bo Bennett

A home with a loving and loyal husband and wife is the supreme setting in which children can be reared in love and righteousness and in which the spiritual and physical needs of children can be met.
David A. Bednar
