  • Abraham Lincoln

What is a goal?

  • Long vs. Short
  • A short term goal is achieved quickly (finish term paper, wash dishes, mail Christmas cards by Friday, etc.). They help you achieve your long term goals.
  • Long term goals will take months, years, all your life.
  • For example: graduate from college, become a pilot, lose ___ pounds, etc.

Do you believe you can achieve?

  • We need to learn how to dream.
  • Keep the dream alive, reach your goals
  • Some people don’t decide or have a vision of what they want out of life. NO GOALS!!
  • People with goals can see what they eventually want to achieve and they can see just how to get there.

Things to remember:

      • Goals must be realistic – you can’t lose 40 pounds in one month
      • Must prioritize – rank in order of importance you, can’t accomplish it all at once.
      • Do you have the resources you need to reach your goals (money, information, health, energy, skill, etc.).

Individual Assignment:

  • Now have them look at their list and ask themselves the following questions:
    • Does it fit your values?
    • Is it realistic?
    • Is it flexible?
    • Does it fit in with your other goals?
    • Will the rewards be worth what you put in to
    • it?
    • Is it what you want?

Belief
