A goal is a target on which you focus and put your time and effort toward achieving. There are five essential steps to realizing your goals. Achieving a goal can take longer and require more commitment than you realize. Self-empowerment and motivation are terrific tools to help steer you toward your vision, which will lead you to your target. Some people believe that when they fail in achieving a goal, it ends the existence of their goal. But this is not true at all! Failing to achieve a goal provides you with the opportunity to go back to the drawing board, redefine your goal and refuel the spirit of your motivation. Here are five steps you can take to improve your odds of success!
For all those who strive to be successful in their professional lives, whether they work for a corporation or they are an entrepreneur, there are a few things they (or should I say you) definitely need to have in order to achieve and keep their edge. Having a vision is critical to being able to climb the corporate ladder. Your vision is what will allow you to stay motivated while working toward achieving the goals you've set for yourself.
Motivation is a key ingredient to success. This is not a news flash by any means, and all managers and good leaders embrace some degree of motivational program for their employees; whether they do this consciously or subconsciously, they all do it.

Achieving our success is based on our "whole" being fully present and accountable, and that means making sure both bodies are not only on board but have the capability to do the work necessary.
Something for which we all strive yet so few achieve and even fewer keep: a good skin care regimen. Oh yes, there are times we look in the mirror and think "Wow! Not a blemish!" or "Eek, not now!"

What do these people have in common? A three-year-old girl running awkwardly to her mother across the lawn while smiling. A housewife, age 43, trotting in the park with her colorful running shoes. A skinny boy of 15 trying to keep up with the pack in a cross-country race, hoping to be part of the team. A 29-year-old teacher who walks to the starting line with his wife, two children and a picnic basket and welcomes his opponents with great pleasure.
I recently watched a video on YouTube and realized it was a perfect way to illustrate a resource I’ve been wanting to share with my readers. The video features two self-made multimillionaires asking self-help guru and motivational speaker Tony Robbins why some people follow through while others don’t.
Eating healthy is critical whether your goal is weight loss, fitness or a healthier lifestyle in general.
