The Top 6 Benefits of Setting Goals

Posted by Dress for Success Midwest Professional Women's Group on July 2, 2010

People with goals succeed because they know where they are going. It’s as simple as that. –Earl Nightingale

The single most important thing that you need to know about setting goals is that they absolutely must be ‘in writing’. This is essential.

Please read this article carefully. These principles seem so simple, yet many people know the value of having written goals – but they don’t have them. The first step is to realize the power of setting written goals. Creating powerful goals can be the difference between having ‘an o.k. life’ or a life that you absolutely love, and the difference between ‘getting by’ or creating true wealth and happiness in your life.

The Top 6 Benefits of Setting Goals are:

6. CLARITY:

You will have more CLARITY: You have to know where you want to go to get there. Setting goals requires you to develop clarity. This is the first and most important step to creating a life that you love and want.

5. FOCUS:

You will develop a stronger FOCUS: Whatever you focus on your get more of: if you have clear goals and focus on them, you will get more of what you DO want (your goals) and less of what you don’t want.

4. EFFICIENCY:

When you get clear about where you want to go, you set up steps and actions to get there. This increases your efficiency because you are working on what is really important. When you work on what’s important, you will accomplish more than you ever expected.

3. DREAMS

You will get what you really want in life, rather than settling for ‘whatever comes you way’.

2. INCREASED SELF-CONFIDENCE

As you set and reach goals, you become more confident in your ability to do what you say and get what you want in life. Success breeds more successes.

And the number 1 benefit of setting goals is…

1. R-E-S-U-L-T-S

Only 3% of people in the U.S. have written goals, and according to research, these people accomplish 80% more than those who don’t. That’s an astounding difference, isn’t it?

Here’s the secret to setting powerful goals and attaining them: Goals must be in written form. Until you put them in writing, they are merely thoughts and hopes. -Mary Gunn

Would you like to join this elite group? Think about it. What would it be worth to you in dollars, happiness and satisfaction to accomplish 80% more? What would your life be like?

Congratulations! You have taken the first step. You have learned about the power of goal setting, and I challenge you to consider the impact it will make in your life.
