Goals are never written in concrete, and may be changed as needed. Thomas Edison, the inventor of the light bulb, had hundreds of failed attempts before he finally succeeded. However, we don’t remember Edison for his failures, which have been forgotten, but for his successes.

You might not accomplish your goal because you don’t know how to establish one, but once you know how, it isn’t hard to set goals and follow through. The key points to goal setting include having a measurable goal and setting a date.

I’d like you to picture your goal, or resolution, as a staircase. You are at the bottom of the stairs, and your goal is on the top step. You can’t do this in one step, but need to climb those steps, one at a time, until you reach the top. Too many of us look at the top step and say, “I can never jump that high. Getting to the top of that is impossible for me. I’ll just give it up.” You are right, no one can jump the height of a flight of stairs, but you don’t have to be able to jump a flight a stairs to reach the top. You only need to lift your foot enough to reach one stair. That, you can do easily. Reaching your goal must be done one step at a time.
