Here’s Why You Haven’t Achieved Your Goal Yet
Simply put, successful people are goal-setters. Goal-setting applies to every area of our lives. We set goals for our careers, relationships, families, finances, etc. Our ultimate goals, however, set the course for our lives. The ultimate goals define the direction that we go in.

I have learned three important ideas for building self-confidence. First, accept complete responsibility for everything that you are and ever will be.
Second, accept that you can change your situation only by working on yourself. Learn what it takes to be better. Third, set goals with timelines for the things you want. Then, work every day to bring those goals into …read more
