Stretch Goals



It's not enough just to set goals – you must ingrain them into your thinking.

Vadim Kotelnikov

If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.

Albert Einstein

Goals. There's no telling what you can do when you get inspired by them. There's no telling what you can do when you believe in them. There's no telling what will happen when you act upon them.

Jim Rohn

Set stretch goals. Don't ever settle for mediocrity. The key to stretch is to reach for more than you think is possible. Don't sell yourself short by thinking that you'll fail.

25 Lessons from Jack Welch

Jack Welch

If you don't know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else.

Lawrence J. Peter

Change is not a threat, it’s an opportunity. Survival is not the goal, transformative success is.

Seth Godin

Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.

Henry Ford

The important thing is to strive towards a goal which is not immediately visible. That goal is not the concern of the mind, but of the spirit.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Goals are dreams with deadlines.

Diana Scharf Hunt

Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.

Swami Vivekananda

When your purpose is animated by burning desire, it does not mean that the path becomes easy; it just means that it becomes certain. Burning desire ensures that you will continue trying, continue getting up after a fail, continue being creative and continue your commitment to see your purpose through.

Danea Horn

The road leading to a goal does not separate you from the destination; it is essentially a part of it.

Charles DeLint

You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage – pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically – to say no to other things. And the way to do that is by having a bigger yes burning inside.

Stephen Covey

A goal properly set is halfway reached.

Zig Ziglar

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.

Zig Ziglar

I don't care how much power, brilliance or energy you have, if you don't harness it and focus it on a specific target, and hold it there you're never going to accomplish as much as your ability warrants.

Zig Ziglar

A goal without a plan is just a wish.

Larry Elder

When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.


I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.

Jimmy Dean

Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.

Stephen A. Brennan

The more intensely we feel about an idea or a goal, the more assuredly the idea, buried deep in our subconscious, will direct us along the path to its fulfillment.

Earl Nightingale

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.

C.S. Lewis

Whenever you get there, there is no there there.

Gertrude Stein

I bet there are things you are holding onto that simply are no longer worthy of your time. It's not that they're not worthy goals for someone... they're just not goals worthy of your life. But it's just not a good use of your life to hang on. Think big, act big. Don't be afraid to move on.

Jason Leister

It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.

Edmund Hillary
