A goal is not always meant to be reached. It often serves simply as something to aim at. - Bruce Lee

A goal properly set is halfway reached. - Zig Ziglar

A goal, whatever it may be, is what gives meaning to our existence. It is the carrot of the stick that keeps us striving – that keeps us interested – that gives us a reason for getting out of bed in the morning. - Unknown

Goals are a means to an end, not the ultimate purpose of our lives. They are simply a tool to concentrate our focus and move us in a direction. The only reason we really pursue goals is to cause ourselves to expand and grow.

Goals are dreams with deadlines. - Diana Scharf Hunt

Goals are not dreamy, pie-in-the-sky ideals. They have every day practical applications and they should be practical. - Les Brown

If you want to reach a goal, you must "see the reaching" in your own mind before you actually arrive at your goal. - Zig Ziglar

It looks as if there were a single ultimate goal for mankind, a far goal toward which all persons strive. This is called variously by different authors self-actualization, self-realization, integration, psychological health, individuation, autonomy, creativity, productivity, but they all agree that this amounts to realizing the potentialities of the person, that is to say, becoming fully human, everything that person can be. - Abraham Maslow

It must be borne in mind that the tragedy of life does not lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy of life lies in having no goal to reach. - Benjamin E. Mays

People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals - that is, goals that do not inspire them. - Tony Robbins 

People who fail to achieve their goals usually get stopped by frustration. They allow frustration to keep them from taking the necessary actions that would support them in achieving their desire. You get through this roadblock by plowing through frustration, taking each setback as feedback you can learn from, and pushing ahead. I doubt you’ll find many successful people who have not experienced this. All successful people learn that success is buried on the other side of frustration. - Tony Robbins

People who say that life is not worthwhile are really saying that they themselves have no personal goals which are worthwhile. Get yourself a goal worth working for.

The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it. - Jordan Belfort

The only way of arriving at your farthest goal is to put your strength and enjoyment into arriving at your nearest. - Unknown

The person who makes a success of living is the one who sees his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That is dedication. - Cecil B. De Mille

The purpose of goals is to focus our attention. The mind will not reach toward achievement until it has clear objectives. The magic begins when we set goals. It is then that the switch is turned on, the current begins to flow, and the power to accomplish becomes a reality. - Unknown

The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don't define them, learn about them, or even seriously consider them as believable or achievable. - Denis Waitley
