A Final Word when You Set Goals _ In conclusion, make sure that when you set a goal, you know why you are doing it. Making money motivates only so much, but becoming a person who can manifest abundance financially and physically for themselves and the people around them is rather more fulfilling. Having the freedom that money can give or have the ability to give or help others by paying it forward usually motivates more than just anything else. So when you set goals, do not take them for granted. Focus on what you can control and let the universe take care of the rest. Do act on your intentions seriously and consistently to achieve them. I know you can go well beyond what you can dream of, I believe in you!
Goal_setting is one of those things that people, it seems, are near unanimous on its importance to life, career, success, achievement. And there are a great many speakers who advocate goal_setting. The latest \'fad\' in this is The Secret _ Rhonda Byrne\'s now famous TV/Film Documentary which, in a nutshell, purports that people who envision what they want will attract its actualization into their life. Now, I\'m not going to detract from this appealing idea because there is something in it _ but it isn\'t new by any means, it\'s been written in the Bible for several hundred years. There are others including Zig Ziglar and Anthony Robbins _ both of whom quote an oft_used story about the effectiveness of goal_setting: This is the Yale Study of 1953 _ some say it is Harvard, and some challenge the year _ it matters not, since the study is an urban myth. Let me remind you of the story, you may have heard variations and the precise percentages vary: Yale researchers surveyed the graduating class of 1953 to determine how many of them have specific, written goals for their future. 3% of them had. Twenty years later, the researchers followed up with the surviving members of the class and discovered that the 3% with written goals had accumulated more personal wealth than the remaining 97% combined!
