Tony Robbins reveals that goal setting is the first step in turning the invisible to visible.  Without goal setting, you might not be able to stay focused in your journey to attain success in your endeavours. It’s important to set a goal because it gives you focus. Without goals you wouldn’t have clearer mental picture of the things you would like to achieve within specified time frame. Write down your goal (document them) Check out the book of Habakkuk Chapter 2, verse 2. Follow one course at a time until you succeed. When you wake up in the morning, know what you ought to do. A goal helps you measure your progress, so you can stay on track on your project. You must have (A To-Do List) on a daily basis. You might not always achieve your goal instantly, but persistency will help you to overcome your obstacles and you will prevail in the end.


Goal setting will also enable you to stay motivated. When you’re intrinsically motivated, you will be on a pathway of success. Such motivation will enable you to sail through confusion and frustration that may surface. Goals setting will help you overcome procrastination. Know what you want to achieve through goal setting. In fact, you tend to achieve more when you set a goal. For example, in network marketing you might draw up a goal to increase your team numerically etc. Goal helps you determine what you really want out of life. Be specific about want you want to achieve either as a short term goal or a long term goal. If you’re all over the place trying to pursue various businesses haphazardly, you will be a jack of all trade and master of none.


Goal setting makes you accountable and more responsible. It enhances your productivity in your being able to maximise wealth through a SMART format (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant & Time-Bound or Based. You never can tell what you can achieve through goal setting. A Hong Kong woman broke a world record by climbing Mount Everest in 25 hours and 50 minutes. It was a potentially deadly climb, but reaching the summit is an incredible achievement. So how do you think she did it? She took one step at a time. It may sound simple, but the lesson is the point I’m trying to raise here. It doesn’t matter how big or scary your goal is, you will get to your desired destination if you take one step at a time. Perhaps you have an enormous goal to achieve and it seems as impossible as climbing Mount Everest.


Are you feeling unqualified and overwhelmed to even begin climbing? Or perhaps you’ve started climbing but now you’re halfway up, stuck, and about to fall off the edge. Hang in there, keep on taking small and manageable steps and you shall conquer your insurmountable mountain of limitations if you don’t lose focus. It’s such steps that give you momentum, motivation, and clarity. Everything you need to do is mapped out in a clear and structured way if you have drawn out SMART format goal as indicated above. Each small action moves you one step closer to your big goals even if you have “Everest-like” goals. But by breaking them down into small steps, you will be able to eventually reach the summit and your dream will be realised.

  1. Hi, Sarah

    Thank you for this inspiring and useful article.
    Setting goals is very important as it gives us long-term vision and short-term motivation and focus.

    Using the Hong Kong woman who climbed the Mount Everest in 25 hours and 50 minutes as an illustration to setting a SMART goal make it clear for me.

    To get where I want to be, I just have to take one step at a time.

    Thank you again
