    Do you realize the power that you have? At times while traveling along, you could think that your vehicle may not be big enough, fast enough, strong enough... you may even doubt yourself as a driver. But the truth is that you have unique skills that can lead you to reach your dreams, if you have one more thing... It is the perseverance to never, never, never QUIT.

    One thing is true... if you quit before reaching your goal, you're guaranteed to never achieve it. How best do you continue to persevere? One way is to define your goals and write them down. Written goals are critical to your success because they are themselves part of your personal road map... they help you define your speed, your range, your vision and dreams.

    Here is an amazing fact: Of the entire 1953 graduating class of Yale University, only 3% had clearly defined and written goals - twenty years later, that same 3% of the class had a net worth greater than the combined net worth of the entire 97% of the rest of the class.

    Do you have your GOALS clearly defined and written?

    I couldn't agree more. The only thing that is guarantee
    if you stop trying is failure. Everyone is afraid of failure
    because nobody wants to failure. However, I think that
    people at failure as something BAD. I look at failure
    as another stepping stone to where I want to go, and
    the only way I will not get there is if I stop myself from
    getting there. Failure can slow me down, but it can
    never stop me, I'm the only one who can stop myself.

    I recommend the movie "The Secret" for anyone who
    is interested in this kind of stuff.

    Best of luck,

    Successful people also failed in their business before. But it is their attitudes and goals that driven them to be successful.

    Goal setting is important and have to be realistic.

    TO BE MORE SPECIFIC, WRITING DOWN YOUR GOALS WOULD BE ONLY PART OF THE EQUATION. IT'S THE STEPS FROM THE BEGINNING TO THE GOAL THAT SHOULD BE INCLUDED AS WELL.
