One of the keys to success in life is having a clear understanding of the importance of setting goals. You have to realize that if it is NOT actually written, it is usually.....NOT real. Writing your goals down gives you direction, and it clarifies the path you should take. We've all heard the statement that says, "The shortest distance between two points is a straight line." We should take this approach when is comes to setting goals in our lives as well. Why would you waste time in life wondering around, hoping to end at your destination? You don't have to HOPE to get there; you just have to PLAN to get there and move FORWARD! I have developed an acrostic that I believe will help you understand the correlation between goal setting and success. Just think of it this way: G.O.A.L.S. (Growth Objectives Attracting Life's Success) If you write down your goals and follow your plan accordingly, SUCCESS will become attracted.....to YOU! "CROWN LIFE!"
