Goal Quotes
(30+ quotes)

Goal quotes are inspiring because they put goal-setting in proper perspective. Writing a list of goals alone will not reap results unless you apply action in the form of work and persistence.

Goals give us focus, but it is important to enjoy the ride and pay attention to detours because they may turn out to be short cuts on the road to achieving your most cherished dreams. Achieving goals takes planning, persistence, focus and enthusiasm. The best self-help goal-focused coaching advice comes from Winston Churchill who said, “Never, never, never, never give up.”  You can do it!

It is not a disgrace not to reach the starts, but is is a disgrace to have no stars to reach for.
