“If you don’t know where you’re going, you will probably end up somewhere else.” – Lawrence J. Peter
Without goals, dreams, values, and standards we are just going with the flow of life. Without a plan, you are living with no direction and are easily manipulated by things around you.
Goals help you to stand firm.
Successful companies have vision statements to help keep them on track. Successful people must also have values to keep them headed in the right direction.
Life has a way of distracting us. People have a way of trying to change us. We take losses, we get discouraged, our plans fail; BUT we must never lose sight of where we’re headed.
We must fix our eyes on the prize. We have to focus on our destination. We can’t veer off course and settle for a more comfortable route.
Distractions may come, but we must must remain focused.
Don’t follow the crowd, don’t lower your standards, don’t compromise your values.
You know where you want to go. Stay focused and get there.
