When setting your goals, aim high!  The Sky is the limit; the only limitations we have are the ones we place on ourselves by underestimating what we are capable of.  Remember,  IF IT DOESN’T CHALLENGE YOU, IT WON’T CHANGE YOU!

“The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we hit it.” ~ Michelangelo

Here’s what I learned about goals after a 25 year career in sales.  The very first thing we learned was goal setting…. before we learned about the product, before we learned “the pitch”, and before we were ever allowed to speak to our first client, our weekly, monthly and annual goals had to be written out and approved by a manager.  Goals need to be specific; not only what you want to achieve, but precisely how you plan on getting there. Financial,  health, personal…. short term, long term; we wrote them out, recited them aloud, revised them, and lived by them.  And those of us who believed them, achieved them.
