Setting goals properly is critical to successful achievement of those goals. One of the main foundations of the the Goal Setting program I teach is also shared by two of the greatest motivational experts in the world, Anthony Robbins and Napoleon Hill.

Napoleon Hill and Anthony Robbins are two of my favorite motivational authors and speakers. This is because they not only offer motivational thoughts and quotes, but offer the How To’s in their informational works.
Both of these leader’s ideas and teachings have been instrumental in my life and career. I have succeeded because of the things they have shared with me.
To phrase this same concept in my course, I tell my students that
“Specific is Terrific!”
Clearly Defined, Written Goals are crucial for Goal Achievement Success.
To empathize and expand on the concept above let’s say that to be successful, you must
- DREAM IT
You first must know what you want. You have to have a vision
- DESIGN IT
Be specific about what you want. Define your goal with as much detail as possible.
- DO IT
No matter what your Dream or Design is, if you don’t Do It – do the actions needed to achieve it, it won’t happen.
Take this with you wherever you go. These are the bare minimum themes for success in your life.
Have a great week. I will be working on my goals while I cruise the Caribbean on the Carnival Sunshine for the next week. I love cruising and this is one of my favorite ways to relax.
Keep working on your goals and let me know how you are doing. When I return from my cruise, I would love to hear what your goals are and how you plan to Dream It, Design It, and how you are going to Do It.
