7 Great Quotes About the Power of Goals

Here are seven great quotes about the power of goals.  Let them help you stay motivated to achieve yours.

1. From Tony Robbins:

"Setting goals is the first step to turning the invisible into the visible." - Tony Robbins

Why I like this quote:

Before anything happens in the real world it first has to happen in the mind. Setting goals is the starting point to achievement.  What do you want to create from the invisible, from what is not yet seen in your reality?

2. From Henry David Thoreau:

"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be.  Now, put foundations under the,." Henry David  Thoreau

Why I like this quote:

Goals are just the starting point.  Many people set goals, but don’t take action on those goals.  Once you’ve identified the dream, you need to lay the foundation — create a plan for action.

3. From Paulo Coelho

"No one can hit their target with their eyes closed." - Paulo Coelho

Why I like this quote:

To hit a target, you have to have a target.  Keep your eyes on the prize.  It will keep you focused on where you’re going, especially when times get tough.

4. T.F. Hodge

"To conquer frustration, one must remain intensely focused on the outcome (goal), not the obstacles." - T.F. Hodge

Why I like this quote:

You will meet with frustration in your pursuits.  Having a clear goal will help you overcome your obstacles.  It gives you something to focus on.

5. Zig Zilar

"What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals."  - Zig Ziglar

Why I like this quote:

Whether we actually achieve our goals or not, it is in the pursuit of the goal that we grow.  The real prize is not the goal, but our personal growth — who we become.  It’s not about the destination.  It is the journey that provides the real prize.

6. Antoine de Saint-Exupery

"A goal without a plan is just a wish." - Antoine de Saint-Expupery

Why I Like This Quote:

I like the truth of this quote.  Many times we fail to reach our goals, because they aren’t really goals.  They are just a wish.  If we truly want to achieve our goals, we must have an execution plan for each goal. And, we must work that plan.

7.  Jim Rohn

"If you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you." - Jim Rohn

Why I Like This Quote:

It captures the essence of why we should set goals in the first place, not for what we will achieve, but for what we will become.  Set goals to live a life worth living.
