Goals quotes and quotations

A goal without a plan is just a wish.
Antoine de Saint

If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
Henry David Thoreau

You can't hit a home run unless you step up to the plate. You can't catch a fish unless you put your line in the water. You can't reach your goals if you don't try.
Kathy Seligman

Pursue one great decisive aim with force and determination.
Karl von Clausewitz

My philosophy of life is that if we make up our mind what we are going to make of our lives, then work hard toward that goal, we never lose -- somehow we win out
Ronald Reagan


Our plans miscarry because they have no aim. When a man does not know what harbor he is making for, no wind is the right wind.
Seneca

Man is a goal seeking animal. His life only has meaning if he is reaching out and striving for his goals.
Aristotle

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.
Lou Holtz

The person who makes a success of living is the one who see his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That is dedication.
Cecil B. DeMille

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.
Jim Rohn

Success is the progressive realization of predetermined, worthwhile, personal goals.
Paul Meyer

A winner is someone who recognizes his God- given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skills to accomplish his goals.
Larry Bird

It is a paradoxical but profoundly true and important principle of life that the most likely way to reach a goal is to be aiming not at that goal itself but at some more ambitious goal beyond it.
Arnold Toynbee

Goals are dreams with deadlines.
Diana Scharf Hunt

The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don't define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.
Denis Watley

A successful individual typically sets his next goal somewhat but not too much above his last achievement. In this way he steadily raises his level of aspiration.
Kurt Lewin

Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal. My strength lies solely in my tenacity.
Louis Pasteur

We find no real satisfaction or happiness in life without obstacles to conquer and goals to achieve.
Maxwell Maltz

To will is to select a goal, determine a course of action that will bring one to that goal, and then hold to that action till the goal is reached. The key is action.
Michael Hanson

Never keep up with the Joneses. Drag them down to your level. It's cheaper.
Quentin Crisp

The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you're willing to work.
Oprah Winfrey

In absence of clearly defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily acts of trivia.
Author Unknown

Do not turn back when you are just at the goal.
Publilius Syrus

In the absence of clearly-defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily trivia until ultimately we become enslaved by it.
Robert Heinlein

Energy is the essence of life. Every day you decide how you're going to use it by knowing what you want and what it takes to reach that goal, and by maintaining focus.
Oprah Winfrey

The goal of life is living in agreement with nature.
Zeno

It is not enough to reach for the brass ring. You must also enjoy the merry go round.
Julie Andrews

When aiming for the common denominator, be prepared for the occasional division by zero.
Author Unknown

The American lives even more for his goals, for the future, than the European. Life for him is always becoming, never being.
Albert Einstein

Often the search proves more profitable than the goal.
E. L. Konigsburg

Never look down to test the ground before taking your next step; only he who keeps his eye fixed on the far horizon will find his right road.
Dag Hammarskjold

The greater the loyalty of a group toward the group, the greater is the motivation among the members to achieve the goals of the group, and the greater the probability that the group will achieve its goals.
Rensis Likert

You must have long term goals to keep you from being frustrated by short term failures.
Charles C. Noble

Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.
Stephen A. Brennan

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goals.
Sydney Smith

You don't have to be a fantastic hero to do certain things -- to compete. You can be just an ordinary chap, sufficiently motivated to reach challenging goals.
Edmund Hillary

When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing, then we truly live life.
Greg Anderson

Life's up and downs provide windows of opportunity to determine your values and goals. Think of using all obstacles as stepping stones to build the life you want.
Marsha Sinetar

Without goals, and plans to reach them, you are like a ship that has set sail with no destination.
Fitzhugh Dodson

I feel that the most important step in any major accomplishment is setting a specific goal. This enables you to keep your mind focused on your goal and off the many obstacles that will arise when you're striving to do your best.
Kurt Thomas

In life, as in football, you won't go far unless you know where the goalposts are.
Arnold H. Glasgow

If I've got correct goals, and if I keep pursuing them the best way I know how, everything else falls into line. If I do the right thing right, I'm going to succeed.
Dan Dierdorf
