Respondents were asked if they were willing to share their own personal goal, 60% did so and these break down into four main focuses: Career, Lifestyle, Money or Ability. We also asked how satisfied respondents were with their achievement. The first three are \'Outcome\' goals _ that is, they specify a particular tangible outcome. Ability focus is a \'Performance\' goal _ such goals focus on an ability or capability of the individual. For those with a Lifestyle goal focus, average wealth is 95ꯠ and \'satisfied\' with their achievement. A Career focus, average wealth is just over 100ꯠ and \'somewhat satisfied\' A Money focus, average wealth is 162귔 and \'satisfied\' and lastly, An \'Ability\' focus, average wealth is 780ꯠ and \'very satisfied\'! Go on, have a guess on the statistical conclusion... yep; those who left formal education in the 90\'s focus more on \'Ability\', 80\'s focus on career and lifestyle, whilst the 70\'s predominantly Money. Surely a reflection of the environment of the time.
Motivate Yourself to be Disciplined _ \"Desire is the key to motivation, but it\'s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal _ a commitment to excellence _ that will enable you to attain the success you seek.\" _ Mario Andretti Think of reasons to accomplish your goal rather than excuses not to do them. As you do the tasks that you hate but bring you closer to your goal you will feel more satisfaction, accomplishment, and peace in your life. It will be difficult at times to keep pushing forward, especially if you do not see results immediately; keep going anyway. A great way to do this is to remind yourself of why you want to accomplish your goal and to always keep the end in mind. Accountability. \"When performance is measured, performance improves. When performance is measured and reported, the rate of improvement accelerates.\" _ Thomas S. Monson. This is why participating in a mastermind group can be so beneficial; it gives us someone to report to who will not only encourage our progress, but hold us accountable for what remains to be done on achieving our goals and related indicators. Remember, the more accountability, the greater the results.
