“The tragedy in life doesn’t lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach.” –Benjamin Mays
This is week 6, the final week of my post and quotes on personal growth and leadership. During the past 5 weeks, I provided tips and quotes on getting in tune with your inner self, managing your thoughts and emotions, communicating with others and activating your life’s purpose.
Now that we have reviewed some major factors in personal leadership, take time to reflect on each area of your life and think about one to two personal goals that you want to work on and develop. Here are some examples of areas that you may want to focus on.
Do you want to take more time out for your self? Do you want to improve your listening skills? Do you want to engage in more activities related to your passions?
When setting your personal goals, keep your goals to yourself! After hitting on a brilliant new life plan, our first instinct is to tell someone, but Derek Sivers says it’s better to keep goals secret. He presents research stretching as far back as the 1920s to show why people who talk about their ambitions may be less likely to achieve them.
